Spirit of Competition

So, one quick Arathi Basin win, and in the mail…a gold medallion that summons a Spirit of Competition Chinese dragon pet – he’s adorable.  :)

I’m so torn about this Olympics. I absolutely believe that politics should be kept separate from the Games. And yet, and yet…supporting the Chinese government in any way feels horrible. I’m against boycotts, being an ex-athlete; an athlete’s competitive life is measured in a handful of years, and to miss competing at the pinnacle of your sport due to a decision to make a political statement is disastrous. In another four years you may not be at your peak, and your time will have gone forever. But even so…it isn’t nice to look at the shining face that China is presenting to the world. It grates.

But the dragon is still pretty cool.
