Calgary Winter Games

Checking out the Olympic Goodies

Well, here it is: the London media goodie bag. It’s the first thing we journos get at the Main Press Centre. (I still have the bag from my first Olympics, a red carry-all from Calgary in 1988. Calgary wasn’t a great Games from a Canadian medal point of view, but the spirit of the city, and the province, and the army of volunteers, was an introduction to one of the best things about having the Olympic circus come to down.)
