My final train ride! I can’t believe we’re already two weeks in. And I can’t believe we have a whole week left!
This morning, after a few hours of sleep, I woke up at the Jury’s Inn in Manchester and took a cab to the team hotel about eight miles outside of town for our last real chance for one-on-one time with Pia and the team before they head to London and our tiny little media brigade turns into a full-blown swarm. (We hear there will be more than 100 Japanese journalists alone covering Thursday’s game!)
On the train from Manchester back to London, I transcribed my interviews, wrote up a fun piece for the Magazine and wrote THIS OFF-DAY NOTEBOOK for ESPN.com.
ESPN.com/action also posted a piece I did with Travis Pastrana on the premiere of his movie, Nitro Circus 3D on Wednesday. I wish I was in the States and could go see it. Depending on its success in the first week, it might be picked up for a couple more weeks, so go and see it … so I can! You can read about it HERE.
Back at my hotel, I did some work, shot another segment for Good Morning America – this one airs Wednesday morning at 7:45 a.m. ET in the States. And then I hung out with my colleagues Joy and Bonnie, drank wine and watched the Olympics on TV. What a novel concept!
