Seems evident that no matter were those 2 are everybody will try to avoid the fireworks. I just happen to decide to eat fast food for lunch. Deciding to buy the same thing somewhere else. Not remembering about a race that was about to happen at 1:25 pm. I had over heard my co-workers calculate the global time difference between Jamaica and Brussels, Belgium.

It seems divine intervention place me in direct view of the television as I sat down to eat in front of a woman with a bad weave. I looked up at the television and saw them introducing the athletes. At the same time I remembered about the race.

I looked around and nobody seemed to notice that the race was about to start. As soon as I motioned to the hairdicaped woman that the race was about to start it seem that collective consciousness of the all the people in the general area swarm into the food court.

I had to be directing people no to block my view of the television. What was once a empty lobby had become a school of onlookers. I hope the race would start soon but apparently EVERYBODY knew about it. It was like the Olympics all over again. Eventually it started; Powell in front, Bolt catches and passes, the entire building ca lapses. It was 9.77 seconds of pure bueaty. It was only after the fact that we had noticed that Jamaica won all 3 medals and came in 4 and 8 just to make sure. I'm almost positive another Jamaican won a gold medal in the hurdles but by then everybody had disbursed. Seems that the Bolt-Powell combination over shadows all.

Either way Jamaica "Going On".

  1. The race did hard! As usual my entire office was evacuated and everyone was in the lunchroom to watch the race. A spectacular race with a great finish, even though i expected Bolt to win and Asafa 2nd.
