The Agenda for Friday, August 12, 2016
By Andrew Meyers • Issue #14 • View online
Happy Olympics, everybody! I don’t know about you, but Jules & I have been tuning into NBC’s primetime coverage every night since they began. Yes, we love watching the Olympics. And we love Bob Costas.
In fact, by buddy Karl & I covered the Olympics extensively in the most recent episode of our podcast, Hops with Pops. Karl schooled me on the history of the modern Olympics, and we waxed nostalgic about our love for the movie Cool Runnings. Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time!
Seriously, though, while the Olympics only come around once every four years (okay, two, if you’re counting the Winter Games), I love that it’s always familiar. And I think that’s why we like it so much. The faces may change, but the spirit of competition is the same, and that’s exciting.
Anyway, this week I’m hoping to medal in interesting linkage. Read on, and enjoy!
