I love the Olympics! There are so many memorable moments over the years. They signified so much during the Cold War it seemed – when we thankfully used athletic events instead of bullets and missiles to fight against Communism (or at least that is how it seemed to a young boy).
With the Cold War behind us they still retain so much richness and drama. Tonight we watched the Men’s 4×100 relay – I won’t give away the ending if you haven’t seen it – go to http://www.nbcolympics.com/video/player.html?assetid=0811_hd_swb_hl_l0194&channelcode=sportsw. Simply incredible – a must see. It embodies what the Olympics mean in my opinion. Go enjoy!
