Why I’m Not Watching The Olympic Games
Crystal A. deGregory, PhD

Sad how tribal allegiances sucks the thrill out of simple little things such as athletic contests. Whether it is clannish loyalty to race or jingoistic devotion to country, I encounter more and more people who pass everything through some cultural filter. Thus everything is political and nothing is joyful. I feel sad for those who can’t watch a Gabby on the mat or a Michael in the pool and just delight in the performance of those who’ve worked hard to get where they’re at.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
