We sometimes have a tendency to take things for granted, and the Olympic Games can certainly fall into that category. Fortunately, these inspirational Olympic memes will help remind everybody just how awe-inspiring the games actually are, lest any of us forget.
It's not every day that you get the world's greatest athletes together to play sports on a nationally televised program. In fact, it's every two years... four if we're just talking about summer sports. It's one thing to make the varsity team. It's another thing to play in the professionals. It's an entirely other thing to be the best in the world. Just think about that for a second. It's pretty insane.
Even as someone who's never been big on traditional sports, I still find the Olympics to be completely worth my time and TiVo. They demonstrate just how much a human can accomplish if he or she works for it. There will be no athlete competing at the Olympics this summer who didn't train and practice and dedicate hours upon hours of their lives to their sport. That's motivating, and I hope everyone will be tuning in this summer to absorb some of that inspiration. The Olympics are an amazing event, and they'll never fade into the background as long as they're occurring.
Only the best will do.
Yes, yes we do.
America, always on top since 1776.
Truer words were never spoken.
