from our pal Scot
A friend of mine sent me this. He thought it was kinda cool. Me too. These guys are crazy and having a great time. As soon as I started watching I realized it was made here in Colorado Springs at the Olympic Training Center. I live about 3 or 4 blocks from there. There's also part of it filmed at the Velodrome. It's a really cool track for bike races. Its also about 4 or 5 blocks from where I live.
There's some great statues featured in the video. Whenever the OTC or USOC presents a miniture of one of them I get to engrave it.
At 3:15 in the video is a crazy guy named Tommy Santagato. I know him, altough I didn't know he was an olympic athlete. I thought he was an OTC employee. Right after that part, at around 3:25, some guy says "this is the mountain shot..." hit pause. Behind him, at the right of the screen is the begining of the fire I was telling you about. You can clearly see where the smoke is obscuring Pikes Peak. It should be a huge part of the background.
Don't we just love Scot?
We love Scot.
