“I have always thought of Christmas as a good time; a kind, forgiving, generous, pleasant time; a time when men and women seem to open their hearts freely. God bless Christmas!”

Charles Dickens



In brief: East Asian Games 2009

December 13, 2009 § 1 Comment

Hong Kong recently played host to the East Asian Games. This competition is typically low-key; most participating countries usually only send their B-team or C-team to the event. This was also true for the Hong Kong’s event, with one exception; China sent their best athletes to the event. The country would have easily won the competition anyway, but China wanted to beat the dead horse so to speak. Well, their plan succeeded; but I don’t think victory is just as sweet.

Here in America, you are likely to be given a free pass after about 10 tries. But I am too principled to accept such.

Where Am I?
