Letter from Trevor Marsicano
By Rick Rietbrock
I thought I would recap on the past few days. Everything has been happening so fast. The highlight in he past week has definitely been walking into the Opening Ceremonies! What a rush! I tried to get right up front because I know there are a few opening ceremony parties that were hoping to see me. From what I heard I think I did get some tv time. I was the second row. What did you think of the outfits? It was so funny waiting to go in because since the ceremonies were indoors this year we were all struggling with trying to stay cool (go figure). We had a thick sweater with a down jacket. Thinking it would be outdoors. We started in the village and then got bused over to the hockey arena. We were headed there for about 30 minutes till we were escorted over to the GM Arena. Then we had to walk around under the stands till we got to the opening where we could march in. It was so funny because there were some chanting wars going on between all the countries. We all shout U S A. And then the next country would start, then the next, and so on. It was really fascinating to get to enter as an athlete. I got a long video shot of it so when I am allowed to release it Ill post it. It was great to be able to share that experience with Jill as well =). Im so proud of her!
Until next time! Stay Strong, Stay Positive!
