I love the Olympics. Every two years I'm happy to put the brakes on life and settle down and enjoy. It's theater on a scale that only Cirque du Soleil and the late Theatre de la June Lune endeavors. Plus, there are massive astrological implications. You can't tell me that activities involving skill, resoluteness and other values prized by the gods aren't being watched. Hubris is the greatest danger to mortals, according to the ancients, and we'll see some of that, along with those who appease the gods of the games --- which in my opinion basically includes them all. The games are Apollonian, Dionysian, Mercurial, Jovial, and I wish they'd show more archery (Artemis, goddess of the moon). So what's your opinion?
