I have to give a shout out to all the people that came up with and support the name “Retrolympics
.” It is awesome. Like, really
awesome. I just wanted to explain why I didn’t change this amazing idea to the new title: All the graphics (header pic and sidebar) were finished and I think it might be a pain to change everything.
But, seriously, you guys are awesome ... and much more creative than me. :)
Anyway, to the matter at hand!
