We were just pouring over old photos and data of my paternal grandfather. And danggit, wouldn't you know it, he went to the Univ. of Missouri, St. Louis campus, for some of his pre-Med studies, 1904-05 -- exactly at the time of the Louisiana Exposition and the 1904 Olympic Games. So now I know where I got the Olympic bug!!

So the Olympics runs in my family for well over a century. Too bad, I never really had a chance to talk with the old man about his early years in the US, including 1904. And just to add a little flavor of the era...
