Well in 2 days I leave for possibly the greatest adventure of my life. I leave for London england for 6 weeks while i work at the Olympics summer games for NBC. After that I will be traveling through Europe for 2 weeks. So far the plan is to head down through France and then back up through Italy and into Amsterdam...I will be doing this alone and have no real plan. I am taking other peoples advice and not having a plan and just winging it. So stay tuned for more pics and videos of my travels.

we'll here it is, i have seen two gold medals being won now, one of them being the first gold medal won this olympics by canadians and also the first ever won on canadian soil....lets say it was pretty bad ass. The second was about 2 hours ago at womens speed skating, another amazing moment, no one thought we would and she came out of no were to have the skate of her life. Secondly i got to watch shawn white shatter the half pipe last night and see some the best riders in the world strut there stuff and i got to watch from in front of the front row....you know the people that pay 2000 dollars to sit in the front...i sat in front of them....hahahaha! But even better as im sitting in the catering tent in compound i look up to see one of my skiing idols walk buy me....Johnny Mosely!!!!!! what...okay it doesn't stop! So now im watching the mens half pipe and i look over and who is sitting in the NBC area.....TONY HAWK....the greatest skate boarder in history....the god father of the extreme sport movement. So then i stand up on a chair to take a picture of the medals ceremonies and and who gets up on the chair beside....FUCKING TONY HAWK!!! PS i have a picture of me and Tony hawk now!!!!!!!!! what up!!!!! From the heinikin house to winning golds and meeting my child hood idols this is probably the greatest time of my life...like common who thought a little cleft lip kid who got picked on from pickering ontario would ever get a opportunity like this!!! cause i never did. maybe good things do happen to good people!
