Thread: Our very own Chris Chappell!

    Our very own Chris Chappell!

    Chris has been a little busy and asked me to post the following:

    A little history about the photo. Taken Jan 31st, 2002 at approximately 9:00am. I lobbied the USOC and was able to change the route to run as close to Craig hospital as possible. Among the 50 or so Craig patients / staff there was approximately 10,000 people witnessing / cheering. Quite a day. Now I understand what its like to be a rock star - if only for a day.

    Thank you

    Wise and everyone. And thank you ladies, I guess the stunt double worked.

    It was an awesome experience and an amazing opportunity. The torch now sits in our living room.

    Take care.

    Chris, I tried to watch the ceremonies last night, thinking that perhaps you would be there. Unfortunately, I dozed off (it was a really long ceremony). Anyway, hope that you were there and enjoyed it. Wise.

    Unfortunately

    I'm one state over in CO and didn't get a chance to go to Utah. Great opening on tv though.

    As the flame was passed I did feel an enormous sense of pride that I, too, carried the flame that now burns at the games.

    A fantastic honor and one that I will never forget. The olympic flag flys outside our home.

    USA! USA! USA!
