Alright peoples of the internet ... well, all eight of you (and specifically the three of you not directly related and thus have a blood requirement to support me ... ) who regularly visit this blog because you have run out of productive things to do at work and your boss has stepped out of the office for a moment ...

Here’s your big chance. Okay. Well. Here’s A chance.

OK ... so almost a year ago, I got this phone call at some ungodly hour of the morning (i.e. before 10 a.m.) asking if I would be interested in a paid position during the Olympics. The job description was a little unclear, but had something to do with identifying athletes for the camera guys producing the video feed at the sliding centre. The position was called "Spotter" and they needed two of us, one from the skeleton/bobsleigh side and one from the luge side.

Well ... uhhh ... THAT was pretty freakin' awesome.

So tonight the torch came through Squamish, and, gotta be honest, there is pretty much nothing in the world quite like being right there within an arm's length of the Olympic flame.

Don't tell anyone ... but I might have almost cried ...
