Long-time readers might remember that we had an open thread for the last major worldwide sporting event, the World Cup. The thread was a lot of fun, with our large international contingent of readers all rooting on their home country. With the Olympics kicking off in London today, I thought it would be a good time to have another open thread.
So let’s hear from you in the comments. What country are you from? Which events are you looking forward to? Feel free to chat about anything and everything Olympics!
And, for some added fun and to keep this somewhat on-topic, tell us which events the Game of Thrones characters would compete in? For example, I’m certain that Syrio Forel would be a gold medalist in fencing! What others can you think of?
