Another Olympic Moment

For the first time in my life, I am actually looking forward to the NBA season.

There are so many incredible athletes who made indelible impressions on me during the Olympics, but I am most surprised by my newfound respect for the men on the USA basketball team. They represented our country well, both on and off the court, showing respect for their fellow athletes and the host nation. My usual disdain for the sport of professional basketball (college basketball is, of course, my single favorite sport) has been replaced by admiration and pride for this talented and gracious group of young men, and also for Coach K and the rest of the staff.

Way to go, Redeem Team!
