2018 PyeongChang, South Korea Winter Games Bingo

With the PyeongChang, South Korea XXII Olympic Winter Games, or the 22nd Winter Olympics, upon us, the world is eagerly anticipating watching their favorite sports and over 3,600 Olympic and Paralympic athletes compete on the global stage as they strive to win gold in 182 events in 15 winter sport disciplines.

But why should they have all the fun?

The Games remind us of all the good that we can do in this world when we follow our dreams. I think the Olympics are so loved because they speak to the inner child we all carry in our hearts, that part of ourselves that still believes, still hopes and still dreams. And the Games, along with the inspirational example of our athletes, invite us to let our inner child go play, go dream, go hope and go live an amazing life without fear, insecurities or regrets.

To that end, I put together this 2018 Olympics Bingo card so you and your friends and family can have fun as you watch, laugh, cry, sigh, gasp and cheer! Just right-click on the image below and print to enjoy!

Why We Love the Olympics

Having grown up around the Olympics and with many Olympic athletes as friends, coaches, mentors and associates, I have seen and felt the power that the Games bring into this world. And it is a wonderful thing.

Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic movement, once noted that the Games are a celebration of the “springtime of humanity.” Every four years (or one "Olympiad") the world comes together in a renewal of hope and dreams to watch our best compete in an athletic spectacle that has no rival, one that is designed to promote one universal goal: peace.

Like you, I have my favorite moments from past Games, from watching these "heroes and gods" compete in cities like Los Angeles, Calgary, Lillehammer, Atlanta, and Sydney. The Games became much more personal when, after beginning bobsled in 1996, I watched friends and associates compete in Nagano, Salt Lake City, Beijing, Vancouver and London. As I let the wonderful spirit of the Games influence my life, I found myself aiming higher, dreaming bigger and hoping more.

With those thoughts in mind, here are (in my opinion) 10 Reasons Why We Love the Games

1. We Love to Cheer Our Athletes

2. We Thrill In Their Victories

3. We Feel the Agony of Their Losses
