It’s always a sad moment for me as I watch the Olympic flame slowly die out. I get really attached to watching them each day for 16 days, and tomorrow I go cold turkey. It’s hard to believe that the time can pass so quickly. So, I will likely be in mourning for the next few days as I try to return to normal.
There is always the two-week event of Party Conventions in the United States and the sprint toward 4 November (of course without Tim Russert, the elections won’t have the same appeal!). And College Football begins on Thursday (South Carolina plays NC State). But, after the Olympics, it will take a while for the lustre to come back.
I do have the events surrounding the buildup to London 2012 to look forward to. Here’s hoping London can put on a good show!
