Rats.  I found out yesterday that I missed what probably would have been the highlight, for me, of NBC’s coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.  My pastor told me that Mary Carillo did a feature piece on Eric Liddell, a 1924 Olympic gold medalist who later became a missionary to China.  Liddell’s life was also the subject of one of my all-time favorite movies, Chariots of Fire.  If you haven’t seen it, drop what you’re doing now and go rent it.  But I digress.

The point is, I missed the NBC segment.  Rats again.  If anyone reading this knows if that segment is available for viewing anywhere, please leave a link in the comments.  Thanks!

Incidentally, Ben Witherington had a nice post yesterday elaborating more than I have here on both the movie and the man.
