  • The Olympics begin.

    Inspiring, uplifting and unmatched are a few of the words you can use to describe event known as the Summer Olympic Games. When Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee even he could not have expected the magnitude of importance the games now hold upon them. An event children of all ages, parents, grandparents, great grandparents and everyone else in the world can watch and can find a nation to support unconditionally.

    I will not lie to you, I'm probably only going to watch basketball, wrestling, boxing, soccer and weightlifting, but I am not discounting the importance of any of the other competitions. NBC and all its affiliates have put forward breathtaking production values and state-of-the-art TV programs giving viewers the best possible coverage of the best athletes in the world. The next few weeks are going to be exciting and this is just the beginning.
