I wish I had gone to the Games in Athens.
It is always inspiring to watch the Olympics...the best in the world in their finest hour.

Nigeria won two medals:
A bronze in the men's 4 X 100m relay (it was a beauty to watch) and a second bronze in the men's 4 X 400m relay.
Next time, we'll win more events: aquatics, women's events, and football quickly come to mind.

I fell in love with several Americans: Michael Phelps the swimmer, Paul Hamm the gymnast - though Morgan is just as hot, Carly Patterson the gymnast...the diver Laura Wilkinson has a calm and mature charm.
I'm also in love with Ian Thorpe the Australian swimmer and Nan Zhang the Chinese gymnast. Nan Zhang is delicious to look at. She's so beautiful. Her birthday is April 30, a day before mine.
Also, Haile Gebrselassie and Kenenisa Bekele and several other marathoners and long-distance runners who made me dream.
Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, the hot mama who led the Athens 2004 Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games.
And of course, all the Nigerian competitors, whether they were representing Nigeria or not.

In four years it will be time for Beijing 2008.

Quoting Khalil Gibran


...For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?
Verily when good is hungry it seeks food even in dark caves,
and when it thirsts it drinks even of dead waters...

...You are good when you are one with yourself...

...You are good when you walk to your goal firmly and with bold steps
Yet you are not evil when you go thither limping
Even those who limp go not backward.
But you who are strong and swift, see that you do not limp before the lame, deeming it kindness.
You are good in countless ways, and you are not evil when you are not good,
You are only loitering and sluggard...
