London Olympics - Part Two

There are some great games here in London, like badminton...

 ... and trampoline.

Except, these are games you can play in your backyard. 

If (or when) East Aurora gets the Summer Olympics, I can see a lot more backyard games being added.

It would look something like this...

Olympic Can Jam

 Olympic Cornhole

Olympic Ladderball
and Olympic Beer Pong

Note:  I'm not really pleased with the cornhole pic, but I did it with three different cornhole games.  I think you get the idea.

I think the Can Jam game turned out really good.  I eliminated the lines and players, and got a pic of the players on the other side (so the same team is facing each other).  I played with all the shadows and - voila! 

Plus, the logo on the beer pong table turned out good.  I put one on a cornhole game but, again, I didn't like the way it was skewed.

London Olympics - Part One

As some of you may have heard, I am the chairman of the organizing committee to bring the 2020 Olympics to East Aurora.  I'm in London this month visiting all of the countries' executives and lobbying for votes.

Oh, come on.  Who am I bullshitting?  I got a lot of state and federal grants, plus donations from several large local corporations (let's just say the "Price" was right).  I printed up a couple dozen brochures at Kinko's, flew to England and I'm partying all the time.

Of course I need to take care of business, so I'm sending a lot of documents home.  Too bad all of these London volunteers are dressed in purple and orange.  I try to give them my Fed Ex packages, but they ignore me.

I've got other pics and lots of stories to tell of my time in London.  Plus, I'll post some of the proposed venues in Aurora.
