Good-Sport Bloggers Wax Poetic on Olympics

Olympic athletes may be positively poetic, at least proverbially, as they participate in their respective activities.

The Summer Olympic Games, formally known as the Games of the XXX Olympiad, open today in London. The 2012 Olympics run through August 12.

Who’s blogging on the Olympics?

This global gathering offers athletes countless opportunities to display both sports abilities and personal character.

Here’s the Simply Snickers blog/poetry prompt:

good sport

What’s a good sport? What’s a poor sport? What examples come to mind of good or poor sportsmanship, particularly at the Olympics (past or present)?

Here’s a three-way bonus for bloggers!
