Morning Look: Olympians in the Streets
I post this photo of Temple University gymnast Jesse Kitzen-Abelson dismounting from the parallel bars outside of Philly's City Hall for several reasons, none of which is particularly great.
1) I was just in Philly, and signs for these U.S. Trials were everywhere downtown. If "signs hanging in downtown Philadelphia" don't signal Olympic fever, I don't know what does.
2) You find a photo with a D.C. sports connection on a Monday in June.
3) As previously mentioned, I'm going to be in Beijing for basically all of August, and we're already sort of in preparatory mode over here. Like, we already know the name of our hotel. It's called the Hotel Tibet. Good sign, right? Nothing bad could possibly happen there.
Anyhow, if any of you read my blogs from the Turin Games (hey Kim!), you might remember that I did a daily "Cheese of the Day" feature, spotlighting the truly momentous cheeses of Northern Italy. I'm told that China isn't necessarily famous for its cheese, but I'm looking for a similar gimmick, a daily foodstuff that could remain interesting for 25 consecutive days without offending a vegetarian's basic sensibilities. Any of you familiar with China and its foodstuffs, please make some suggestions.
