The Olympics

I really enjoyed watching the Olympics for the past two weeks, and since the events and champions themselves have been discussed in great detail in other forums, there's no sense in me trying to add anything to that analysis. But one thing I would add is that my favorite Olympic-themed commercial was, despite Visa's best efforts, the Nike commercial for the men's basketball team (the "Redeem Team"), which featured a clip of Marvin Gaye's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Here's the commercial:

And here's the full song:

The Star Spangled Banner - Marvin Gaye
