Let's start a few hundred miles north of here today, circa 1976. As a ten-year-old boy, I had the tremendous privilege to travel to the city of Montreal to see the Olympic Games. We missed the ceremonies, but I can still remember seeing some gymnastics, and spending a lot of time sitting in the Olympic stadium watching track and field events.
We were in the stadium over several days of the decathalon, and watched Bruce Jenner take home the gold for the United States.
