The scrambling is done, the big preparations are made, and it's getting near time to pack bags. Chris Knight, our senior staff writer, started his Olympic blog yesterday.

Lou, our senior sports writer, heard last week from Nikon Professional Services that his membership request was finally accepted, letting him borrow all kinds of cool camera gear at the Olympic press centers. And we've been poring over the Olympic schedule, making day-to-day coverage plans.
