Its that time of the year again. The time when everyone finds it totally cool to leave your television on almost all day (because who knows when you might see some cool, obscure sport like trampoline or archery). That’s right, its the Olympics!
The Olympics are one of my favorite world events because its a time where over 200 countries come together in friendly competition. For a couple of weeks, we try to pretend like all the other problems we might have with each other don’t matter. Heck, even the commercials ooze with patriotism and inspiration (Check this one out for example).
But don’t forget that there are real diplomatic and political issues that do matter and are affecting the games in London. This and this, and even this are news articles that might help give you an idea of what issues are happening at the Olympics, besides the sports and athletes.
Happy Olympics! And may the odds be ever in your favor.
