The Olympics: Reflecting on the 1984 L.A. Games (Photos)

As the world focused on Los Angeles for the 1984 Olympics, Eagle Rock played a role in history.

As the London Olympics gets into full swing—and NBC gets both "rants" and "ratings" for its cross-Atlantic coverage of sporting events, to quote the Los Angeles Times—people in Eagle Rock and beyond remember the Games of the XXIII Olympiad in Los Angeles and their participation in that historic spectacle, which helped Los Angeles blossom into the world-class city it is today.

I fondly remember the Olympic Arts Festival. I was delighted by Circus Oz, Japan's Sankaijuku and Tiny Abatemarco's Brain Hotel. The last has a particular place in my heart, as it was the last theatre piece I saw with my mother, who died in October, 1984.

Oops! That should read Tony Abatemarco!
