The Winter Olympics are back, so when you put on your Deep Thinking Toga tonight and head out to the Think Tank, perhaps you should adorn your toga with your nation’s flag to honor your Olympic athletes.
I’m extremely tired, so let’s get right down to it. Meet me out at the Think Tank immediately!
This week’s topic: If you could compete in any Winter Olympics event, which one would it be?
Without a doubt, it would be Ice Hockey for me.
That’s the one sport that I can still get excited about every four years when the Winter Olympics rolls around again. Even though I rarely watch NHL hockey anymore, I’ll try my best to watch all of Team USA’s games.
I loved playing hockey and was a huge Islanders fan back in the day. I always fantasized about playing for my country in the Olympics even though there was no way that was ever going to happen. A young Modern Philosopher can dream!
The Miracle on Ice from the 1980 Winter Olympics is a constant reminder that Olympic Ice Hockey is the coolest event of all. How cool would it be to put on the Team USA jersey and represent my country?
I have no idea how the boys in red, white, and blue are supposed to fare in Sochi, but I will be watching the games, rooting them on, and wishing I were out there with them.
What about you, Modern Philosophers? How would you want to represent your country? Were you ever good enough at any sport that the Olympics were a consideration?
Remember, there are no wrong answers in The Think Tank, so write whatever comes to mind. I look forward to reading all your comments, but I have to watch several hours of tape delayed Winter Olympics coverage first.
I apologize for the abbreviated post, but this week really kicked my butt, and I am crawling up to my bed as I peck out this post with my nose.
Happy Friday! Enjoy the Olympics!
