Summer Olympics: Beijing 2008

Hot Dogs, 4th of July and ice cold lemonades… Summer is the best time of year to enjoy the great weather and live it up with your close friends and family. In America, the Olympics are our olde past time. We now have MLB, NFL, and the NBA as our main sport attractions. I feel the Summer Olympics bring us, the world, closer since we all send our best athletes for 3 weeks and compete as to who is the best from each country.

Above: The five mascots for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games include cartoon renditions of, from left, swallow, a panda, the Olympic flame, a Tibetan antelope and a fish, with each one the color of one of the Olympic rings.

This year, the Summer Olympics will take place in Beijing, China. And from August 8, – August 24th be sure to support your home countries’ athlete. This event takes place once every 4 years, but the memories can last a lifetime. Since “the accident” I was not able to compete in the sport I love the most, Archery (damn tennis elbow). So I plan on competing in the luxury of my home. That’s right people, I won’t be playing ‘Caveman Games’ on the NES, instead my Blu-Ray player will be spinning Beijing 2008.

  1. While you’re playing Summer Olympics: Beijing 2008, the rest of the world will be playing Sonic and Mario at the Olympics.

  2. lol. Either way there will probably be more people playing Olympics video games than actually watching the Olympics on television.

  3. Really, Juan?

    I’ll be playing Soulcalibur 4 🙂

  4. Well, I figure someone has to support the Olympics. I’ll start a clan, ‘Red-rum’ and like the Poltergeist Lady once said “All Are Welcome.”

  5. the thing about Olympics-based video games is that they aren’t very realistic. They don’t give you the option to juice your athletes. I guess cheating is why I stopped caring about the games…
