I guess I could write that I experienced "a perfect storm" during the 1984 Olympic Games: I was 11 years old, my favorite restaurant, McDonald's, was hosting a game where a US medal equaled free food, a neighborhood friend worked for the Golden Arches and the Russians boycotted! How does this confusing chain of events work out? Well, because the Russians weren't there America kicked ass - rendering a great number of these McDonald's coupons golden and my buddy stole about 3000 of these cards!!! We were eating free Big Mac's, cheeseburgers, fries, cokes, shakes all summer long. I went over to my boy's house and he had his freezer loaded with Big Macs! It's a memory I will never forget: a true goldmine for an 11 year old!
Opening Ceremonies, 1984
