Let the games begin!

Okay let’s be real. The Olympics most probably shouldn’t be happening this year due to the ongoing pandemic let alone just the sheer negative environmental impact of hosting these games. That said, there is something really special about a global competition, pitting the best athletes around the world against each other to win some glory for their home countries. So join Tuong and Olympians Desiree Connors Warmington, Al Connors, and Leslie Cserepy as they look at the entire history (and future?) of the Summer Olympic Games and make a Top 5 list!

Ground Rules

  • We are nominating an event not a component of an event. Ie some events are combined events that have multiple components where some of those components don’t have it’s own category. Therefore in this case, you’d nominate the whole event
  • Nominations can span the entire history of the Summer olympics including upcoming confirmed games
  • We do not need to specify male vs female events unless those events are specific to those categories

*Spoilers* Below is our Top 5 list from this episode as well as our own personal unordered  lists.

Ground Rules

  • We are nominating individual tracks and not entire scores for this episode
  • Songs must come from a main line Legend of Zelda game ** (ie any off shoots do not count for this list like Cadence of Hyrule or Hyrule Warriors).
  • End credit music also counts as a nomination
  • A super medley of songs don’t count as one nomination. For example, The Legend of Zelda came out with an insane 25th anniversary orchestrated collection which is good in it’s own right, but you cannot nominate one of the tracks from this album as each track is essentially a compilation of many songs (done really really good).

“I’m done running from my past.”

It’s been over 2 years since we have got a proper movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (since Spider-Man: Far From Home came out in June of 2019 to be exact). While the Disney+ Marvel shows have been doing a great job in their own rights expanding the universe, there was a lot of appetite to see a feature length movie in the MCU. After multiple multiple delays from the pandemic, the time has come finally to the nerds to rejoice! Was it worth the wait? Join Tuong and the Strongest Avenger Patricia Eddu as they talk about long anticipated Black Widow!
