Are you enjoying these Olympics as much as I am??
Wow! Michael Phelps...history made before our eyes! Gymnasts doing amazing things!! Wonderful basketball being played....all while we learn more about a very interesting culture!!
One-fifth of the world's population is in China! 300 million people in China play basketball!! That is approximately the entire population of the United States! Imagine everyone in the United States playing basketball! That is music to my ears!!!
Watching the Olympics with my kids is special as I hope it inspires them to work hard to achieve success in anything they decide to do! I remember sitting in my house as a 10-year-old boy watching the men's basketball team get cheated out of the gold medal in 1972 in Munich! It hurt....still does!
I dreamed of winning a gold medal in the Olympics as a basketball player. It didn't happen, but it was a great dream to chase!
"The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat!"
Note: my wife is still in the hospital. We hope to get a good report tomorrow so we can get her home!
