We took the metro to our first event the next morning…
“Hot lunch box magic steamer,” I read.
The fencing took place in one of the new stadiums on the Olympic Green…
“Do you see anyone you know?” Dad asked as I scanned the crowd.
The competition began with the familiar buzz of the electric scoring system.
The preliminary bouts finished with three US fencers in the top four.
The final buzz sounded for Mariel Zagunis’s gold medal touch
“Bush Senior. He’s sitting right over there.”
I felt rather patriotic.
