There have been many inspiring moments in this years rapidly advancing Olympic games. The last hoorahs of Misty May Treanor and Michael Phelps coinciding with the great entrances by young kids like Katie Ledecky and Gabbie Douglas. Each country has their inspiring heroes. Joe A. and I were thinking of particularly inspiring performances and both remembered Jim Redmond helping his son Derek around the track after he was injured and determined to finish. As middle-aged men and fathers this moment in sports hit close to home and deserves a Male Pattern Madness call-out (link to video). When searching for this story I came across this website of the Top 10 Most Inspirational Olympic Moments and thought I would share.

Enjoy the rest of the Olympics, and have a great safe weekend.
