It all begins with a Thursday leap year, Gandhi , Nascar, the Hell’s Angels, the Big Bang, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, the Land Rover, Laurence Olivier’s Hamlet, Plomar, Albert 1, the London Olympic Games, Korea, the 57th Street Art Fair, Operation Magic Carpet, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Great Flood and a bohemian rat cat poet.
A long time ago there was this guy who loved hanging out with athletes. We are talking a real long time ago. We are talking about all the way back to the dawning of the Age of Olympians. It was a t time when warriors were athletes and their skills were tested in sports and not on the battlefield. A time when heroes accomplishing deeds no other could. An era when great men and great women created an ideal that out lived them and defined their civilization.
