The Eugene 08 Olympic Trials are happening right now. I am taking some vacation during this time because the building I work in is across the street from Hayward Field where all of the events are taking place and it is a MAD HOUSE. The security and parking are a total pain so I thought it best to just visit with the farmer the other day to experience some of the event instead of living it each day.
Adjacent to Hayward Field is the Eugene 08 Festival complete with two jumbo video screens with the simulcast of the competition. It is the place to go for meet spectators as well as those who do not have tickets.
A few days ago the Budweiser Clydesdales paraded downtown by the county and city buildings.
Just an example of how tall they are. Look at that person walking beside them! Wow! And look at those feet.
