The next summer Olympics won't be in September. They'll start on Aug. 5th. http://www.olympic.org/rio-2016-summer-olympics

It's funny though, I was looking back at the Olympic venues and noticed when some of the summer games used to start (all the winter games start in the winter at least, with Feb. being the norm). There were some summer games (early on) that started in April and May, and then in the 60's they held them in early/mid October (in Tokyo and Mexico City).


I miss the Olympics when they're over, but like Lady Steel, I was starting to get a little burnt out.
