Stars on Ice and the Olympic Spirit

Ten years ago the Winter Olympic games were held in Salt Lake City.  It was such a wonderful experience where the world came to Utah.  I loved being a spectator to several events and a volunteer for the Paralympics at the Soldier Hollow venue.  It seems like just a short time ago yet none of my children were even born.

On Saturday Lindsey and I went to see Stars on Ice.  It was a figure skating show featuring several Olympiads including some of the medalists from the 2002 games.  The show was a tribute to the 2002 Olympics featuring several video clips on the jumbotron.  The evening was hosted by Scott Hamilton and there were speeches by Kristi Yamaguchi, Derek Parra and Mitt Romney.  The whole evening was fun and brought back such amazing memories.

Funny side note about the ticket, the Utah Jazz were not playing that night but apparently they used their ticket template to print out our tickets.
