are we the greatest country in the world?

gabby and her coach ask a butterfly.

sports are nice – when they’re shown live, or seen live, or participated in by me

are the olympics the best example of sports?

ask the underdogs.

many of whom never make it on tv.

tears are cool

especially when theyre streaming down a cheek of a winner

as their national anthem is played to a mostly full arena.

but super especially when they fall

in a gym in the middle of nowhere

or a track on the outskirts

or in a pool or a court or a field or a street

when no ones looking

because someone did something they couldnt do yesterday

and now theyre one step closer to their dream.

and still the butterfly flutters away saying

cant do this

suckers.
