It seems that everyone is getting into the Olympic spirit and acting out their favorite sport. Wrestling is an obvious favorite for canine couch potatoes given such moves as “Keep You Heel to Your Butt” and “Backdoor” manuevers.
We are still in Chicago and enjoying my home city. We went to the Sears Tower yesterday and stood on the clear observation ledge 103 stories above Wacker Drive.
We also did our traditional trip to Ed Debevics for burgers and milk shakes.
We made it back to watch the wonderful win of our women in gymnastics and of course Phelps’ historic races. Very cool.
By the way, I have to join the large number of Londoners who intensely dislike the ArcelorMittal Orbit. The 377 ft sculpture and observation tower by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond will be a permanent addition to London and I don’t view it as a particularly good addition. What do you think?
