While I enjoyed the Olympics, I'm glad they're over. The first week is great; by the second week I get a little fatigued trying to keep up with all the different events. But the Olympics kind of got me thinking.
I heard that groan.
Anyway, it's Thursday, so here's my strange story idea for the week:
What if we didn't fight wars? What if we solved international disputes with a sporting contest?
It wouldn't have to be something as grand as an Olympic games. Perhaps just a basketball tournament or a decathlon.
What would that be like? What sort of world would do that? Would it help or hinder international relations?
