Consider This: Bringing families together with Summer Olympics on KCBD

Finally, the anticipation is over: the 2016 Summer Olympic Games are here! More than the Super Bowl, more than the World Series and more than the NBA finals, no other event excites me like the Olympic Games.

What a great time to take a break from the partisan political noise or anything that is stressful in your life and watch athletes from around the world peacefully coexist.

It's so refreshing to see that regardless of your country of origin, your nationality or your personal political views that none of this matters in the arena of sports.

Like everyday sports, Olympic competition has always been the great equalizer.

So consider this: It's a great time to gather the family together to do something that is no longer the tradition it used to be, and that is watching TV together.

Regardless of the age of any member of your household there is something for them to watch during the Olympics.

Enjoy the international experience, while at the same time expressing your patriotism, by supporting the athletes and rooting for Team USA during the Olympic Games.
