London 2012 Summer Olympics...A Preview of Golden, Silver, and Bronzish Hospitality

Hi fans!!

IWS Sports Director Slyder Balzcock coming to you live from the hometown of NFL Hall of Famer and current Pittsburgh Pirates defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, and more importantly, live feeding you something from the site of the 2012 Summer Olympics….

London, Ohio !!

I can feel the excitement building as the townsfolk in this normally quiet hamlet of 8,800 prepare to welcome the temporary, yet potentially overwhelming immigration of the world’s most gifted athletes into their tiny, yet vibrant and versatile community...


And when I asked town Father and Mayor of London, David Eades, how he felt about his community hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics, his amazement of the moment overwhelmed him, as he replied…

“I am utterly stupefied by your question, Mr. Balzcock.”

Yes folks, to not only the residents of this town, but to the Mayor himself, hosting the London 2012 Summer Olympics is beyond words.

Anyhoo…

As we (as does former Salt Lick City Winter Olympics organizer Mitt Rommey) all know, logistics are the key to any well-run Olympics, and the denizens of London, Ohio are well-prepared on the housing front for the thousands of athletes that will dead lift them, poll vault over them, and 100-Yard dash right through them.

They have dusted up the London Olympic Village and it looks great…


Being always vigilant and anticipating an overflow crowd of athletes, the town has bargained to gain additional boarding if needed at one of the two locally housed state prisons…

Of course, while a good rest is important to a world-class athlete, when competing in the Olympics, food is the fuel that drives the well-tuned engine of any sword player, breast stroker, or Greco-Romanian wrestler, and all will be well-fed within the delicious confines of the official dining hall of the London 2012 Summer Olympics…


And listen all you equestrians…If you are in a bind and/or bridle before your dressage run, take your horse to Dixie’s, because while they advertise dog grooming, I’m sure they can put a sexy flair into your steed’s tail, and looks never hurt anyone when being judged…Not even a horse.

And there you have it IWS readers, a bit of a more personal and homespun preview of this year’s London 2012 Summer Olympics.

I am sure I will have an update or two as the games go on as I report on Mister Gold Medal and pothead Michael Phipps, and the sure to be everyone’s black darling of gymnistics, Gabby Douglas.

And let me tell you folks, there is something that rivals the London 2012 Summer Olympics going on at the same time in London, Ohio...




I don't know how a town this size handles all of this magic at once, but they do, and they are, and because of that, they are all Gold Medal winners!!

Until my next London 2012 Summer Olympics update…

This is Slyder Balzcock leaving it all on the field…and the track, and headed for the Olympic podium.

USA!!  USA!!  USA!!

What a great town! I'm not surprised that Slyder didn't check out all the Charles Dickens attractions, but spectators and athletes will both want to do so.

I want to go to the Rib and Jazz Fest but not sure I trust the razor wire around the prison... Missy

Miss: It's harmless if you are going to a Rib and Jazz Fest, but trying to go over it could ruin your career as a pole vaulter if you're not careful. Cheers Miss!!

Such a shame I live in that other London, where all the Olympic hype is in the air.

Boy, they must be really excited for London, Ohio, USA.
