Reasons to Love the Olympics, Part One

I don't know if I will have anything else for this, but I want to be more optimistic.

After everything that the people of Iraq have been through, it is great to see them return to the world stage associated with something very positive. I watched a bit of the match and they played with smooth effeciency. Only a couple of tactical errors marred their play.

The Olympics are awesome because they allow people to strive in the arena of skillful performance and prove themselves, not at gunpoint, but at heart of those things that make us truly human, solidarity, respect, and a proper competitive spirit.
