Thinking or OVER THINKING: packing for that 'Big Assignment' ::..
| Feb 06, 2014 | Every athlete has a goal. And getting ready for covering the Sochi Winter Olympics I came up with my own goal: Get there with just three checked bags. You would think after covering 12 Olympics I would have this packing-thing dow ...
