You see this...
...and I end up seeing this....teenage paparazzi!
It's hot today .. Guys look like they're hurting ...
East meets west. Our Russian counterparts interviewed Domi and me for a story looking ahead to the Sochi Olympics.
Making a pin trade with the Turkish Olympic Federation. Now have "They Might Be Giants" in my head.
Going to miss our regular Underground stop.
First-time tube riders think they don't have to hang onto the bar. They learn.
One last shot of Parliament as we shoot our last story on the Westminster bridge.
Domi says I look like I'm going to a picnic. Does that mean working with me is a picnic?
All of this ... for handball.
Connect 4 on steroids.
We have got to get one of these...
Summer has arrived at the Summer Olympics. #abouttime
7 Olympics together...and we're still friends.
Domi is an honorary Norwegian thanks to his wife, Lynn. Go Norway!
Ever wonder who the crazy Aussie is on nbcolympics.com? My longtime Olympics buddy @bradblanks. He's CRAZY!!
NEWDear Aixa...move to Sacramento. Love Fitz. xoxo #crazyfunfriend
And to think she also has a cell phone...
Jaime's last day of live shots...it's like a rite of passage.
Billy Bush just climbed into my live shot..and oddly, I wasn't surprised.
Old vs new...everywhere you go.
Lots of bike commuters here...few wear helmets #frightening
Huge crowd for press conferences with Japanese and U.S. women's soccer teams before tomorrow's gold medal game.
Room is packed with journalists from all over. This clearly is a marquee matchup after last year's World Cup.
More media here for soccer than were in this room the night Phelps swam his last race.
We listen to headsets and a translator for the non-English answers.
Redding's Megan Rapinoe. 1st question were about recently coming out. Um..how about the 2 goals she scored in semis?
Wow...it's raining in London.
Here's what you see when I'm reporting...
And here's what I see. #nopressure
Working 7 Olympics with Domi = knowing when he needs a sushi break. #feedthephotog
Not supposed to have favorites, but Jill Camarena Williams is Domi's longtime fave Olympian. Covered her since HS!
London didn't go Jill's way, but she is a champion in the true sense of the word.
Went sightseeing with the Camarena family at St. Paul's Cathedral. #longwayfromWoodland
Jill and her sister Christi ... "Let us in!"
What a place to hang and catch up.
Think being an Olympian is tough? Try being the Andersons, parents of 2 Olympic athletes at the 2012 Games.
Hyde Park is another place where the public can watch events, like open water swimming and triathlon, for free.
Ironic considering the athletes are swimming here...
A shot with the Anderson women...Jordan, 15, is also a swimmer. Rio 2016??
Daughter Alyssa already won gold on a relay team. Daughter Haley is next with Thursday's 10k open water swim.
Aunt Jeanne looking for Haley during practice.
A little different scenery from my normal drive to work.
Just realized why I've been feeling off today. #classy
Do you really need a name tag if you're the most decorated Olympian?
Just another retired guy walking into a news conference.
Phelps says he couldn't be happier about how his career ended. 22 Olympic medals, 18 of them gold. #retirementrocks
Missy Franklin says she's heading to college, not the world of of endorsements.
Day one of live shots. Many more to go!
Look who I just ran into! NorCal's Erin Cafaro with her newest rowing accessory.
Gold rowing medalists Erin Cafaro and Mary Whipple. They're also roommates.
The women's 8 boat also won silver at the 2004 Athens Games and gold at the 2008 Beijing Games.
Next up for coxswain Mary Whipple: She's getting married this fall.
I love the London Games. I can get away with saying things like, 'Do you want have lunch at the pub?'
Kayaking the Thames.
I have ticket envy.
Kind of like 'Where's Waldo' but with the 1984 L.A. Olympic eagle.
London calling...perhaps literally.
Love English signs. Must get a buggy.
Love that the British tabloids celebrate cycling.
Love the basket. Perfect should a tornado swoop in and go after a dog named Toto. #theresnoplacelikehome
Mmmm...wonder who they're cheering for today.
More of the TV glamor. Banana break at Wimbledon.
Congrats to San Jose's Marti Malloy for becoming only the second American woman to medal in judo.
Marti Malloy's good luck shoes. Click them three times and you'll win bronze.
Wonder how many times she's been asked to bite the medal today.
Next up: Marti wants a manicure. Polish not allowed in competition.
In today's forecast: Reality.
Hard to believe we made it a week without rain gear.
Rainy day in Olympic Park. Get used to it!
Never thought I'd need this sweatshirt here. I was wrong.
Keeping her cool while standing in line. Hannah has been in line to pick up tickets for two hours.
It's 80 degrees here today. Felt so sorry for the dude in the phone box.
You know you're covering the Olympics when you bring your laundry to a news conference. #needcleansocks
Reporter in a box. Our crew checking out where we'll go live from. That's the Athlete Village behind us.
The "Today Show" is not in a box. It's more of a circle. Cool, eh?
Rode the Underground during rush hour. It's not exactly spring fresh. How cramped will it be once the Olympics start?
Scary...but it fits!
Serious Olympic cuteness.
Shooting promos near Big Ben and the London Eye. We became the third most-watched tourist attraction.
So tempted to get this for my kids.
Streamlining our work for the Hearst stations. Only took Domi and me seven Olympics to come up with this idea.
Something tells me Shawn Johnson may be having more fun as a non-athlete than she would have competing.
Watched the end of the Opening Ceremony on a phone with the security guys so we wouldn't miss the fireworks.
Sometimes I think we watch too much of what's happening in front of us on an iPhone screen..myself included.
Stunned at how many journalists work exclusively from iPads.
Domi loves cheese, so how sweet (or dry, aged or blue) is this?
Spending our morning in a beautiful South London neighborhood with a family from Long Beach, Calif.
The view from the top floor of the house they found on homeexchange.com.
A true English garden...so pretty.
Domi makes friends wherever he goes. It helps that he usually has cheese in his pocket.
Taking a moment to stop and, well, you know.
This logo is on the front of official London cabs.
We do stories for all these Hearst Television stations. Really.
Well, isn't that something?
When an Olympian says, 'Would you like to wear my medal?' Do not pass go.
Working on my forehand at Wimbledon.
Wow...I say this all day long to my kids at home. Sign on the back of public restroom doors.
A great photo op.
All Olympics. All the time.
Back in Wimbledon this morning. Like tennis. LOVE Wimbledon Village.
Being interviewed by Polish Radio. I'm big in Warsaw.
Domi bought me ice cream for doing a good job. Oddly, that's how I reward my 3 yr old too!
Domi finally got to have lunch with the Queen. #brilliant
Even the signs scream 'old' here.
Expecting Austin Powers at any moment. #shagadelic
House O' London
Getting carded is a polite experience here...not that I have firsthand experience...yet.
Getting officially credentialed for the Games. It's all done at the airport.
Talk about plush. We walked to baggage and these guys hauled our bags for us.
Heathrow Olympic volunteers have come from all over the world to say things like, 'This way to the loo.'
The fourth member of our team, Mike Rhinehart, left on an early flight.
One last live report before leaving.
Hardest part of leaving. Got the shirts at Old Navy! Cheap!
