So as most of you, I have been watching numerous hours of the many different events from London. It’s fantastic to see the culmination of the many hours of practice that every one of these athletes has put in. For the most part the spirit of the games is displayed in many wonderful ways by these world class men and women. My favorite up to this point has been the runner with the two prosthetic legs being given another athletes jersey after that runner won the gold. The not so fun part for me is to see the men’s basketball team who seem to be just playing for their own ego’s. Remember these are some of the same guys who were saying that they should be compensated for going to the olympics. While I think we should let some pro’s play, why not balance that with younger and more first timers.
BUT WHAT I DO GET FROM WATCHING THESE GAMES IS HOW PASSION AND COMMITMENT CAN ALLOW ANYONE TO ACCOMPLISH GREAT THINGS
AND YOU DON’T NEED A MEDAL TO SHOW FOR IT !!!!
