Who Are You, Five Ring Fanatic?

Image
It's normal to like the Olympics. The immense build-up, fanfare, and media coverage allows any normal follower to transform into a mega-enthusiast. Every two years, we observe some form of the Games- and for those years between, we are preparing for the next celebration.
Thus, being an "Olympics fan" is relatively normal nowadays. However, I am not an Olympics fan.
I am a Five Ring Fanatic.

The weather is turning chilly. Flakes of snow have started to fall. Winter celebrations have already begun, and with ski season this year also comes the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea. Who else is ready for some downhill action?

I'm a regular listener of RadioLab and referenced a previous episode of theirs called "On the Edge" in Pop Culture Roundup post. They are back at it again and have inspired me to revisit this blog even as we are in a lull between Games.

Drumroll please- it's the last movie of our Olympics Movie Marathon!
This week I watched Miracle (2004), which chronicles the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team victory over the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
