As the Olympic games go on for a few more days it has been fun watching all of the events so far. I was talking with Josh about how the Olympics really brings out the patriotism in our country as a whole. As I chat here and there with friends, family, and co-workers...the one thing we can all talk about and enjoy is watching the Olympics. So we as a nation still have this one thing where we can all agree on...cheer on our American Athletes! In a time when we seem like such a divded nation...be it for political, environmental, or religious reasons...it is still reassuring that we can all come together to cheer for our athletes.
Who could not cheer for the American swimmer's 2 nights ago when they swam to a gold medal finish in a race where they came back from a body length behind to beat the heavily favored, trash-talked French...? If you did not watch it please to go nbcolympics.com to see it all go down. Not only that but the first 6 teams to finish all beat the previous world record! what!?!
So here's to America...unified completely for a few more days!
Then it's back to the politics again...sigh
