Synopsis by Alice Day
Americans are, by nature, extremely competitive, as this program demonstrates. While it is understood that the usual sports, such as football, baseball, and basketball, have their avid participants and equally enthusiastic spectators, there are other areas, perhaps not as well publicized, that have their devoted fans as well. Spirit of America: Competition -- Let the Games Begin visits several contests across America, where the competition is fierce, and fun is a primary goal. There is a frog rodeo, a kinetic sculpture challenge, a burro race, a bike race, and a regatta.
