I just did the research, I haven't posted about sports since May 13th. That depresses me. Don't think I'm not sitting here thinking about it though. I consistently open up a blank Fan Friday blog post and sit there, staring. WHERE IS FOOTBALL?
TOO MANY GOOD HITTERS Y'ALL! Not enough batting spots! #RangersProblems!
Praise the LAWWWWWD, I just remembered THE OLYMPICS! DUH, *FACEPALM*.
Let's talk about the Olympics!
Rio promised to clean up this water, but abandoned the project in 2015 because it ran out of money...............................
.....Except male golfers.
The vast majority of golfers are saying the Zika Virus is holding them back. This would have been the very first time that golf would be an olympic sport in 112 years, and golf fans all over the world were hyped up for the occasion.
That was until every single top golfer (seriously the top 4 in the world) backed out.
Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott ... and many more.
Rory even went so far as to say that he probably won't even watch television coverage of golf at this summer's Olympic Games, preferring "track and field, swimming, diving, the stuff that matters".
So, at the very least, there is some major controversy surrounding this particular round of Olympics. But hey, look in the bright side, at least we have gymnastics!
Here are my questions for you....
1. What sport are you most excited to watch next month???
2. If you were a pro athlete, would you go and risk the waters and/or the Zika Virus to live out your dream of being a gold medalist?
