Iraq in the Asian Games Finals!!!
It is impossible to overstate the amount of adversity the Iraqi national team has had to overcome. I actually met them on my first weekend in country back in March, and as cliched as it sounds, they serve as inspiration to everyone working to build a better future for Iraq, regardless of sect, ethnicity, or even nationality. (And they get Iraqis to fire vertically for a night instead of horizontally!)
The finals are on Friday afternoon, in which Iraq will play the winner of the Qatar-Iran game that is starting within the hour. I really hope that I can find a way to watch the championship. After all they've been through, the Iraqi people deserve this victory.
