The Olympics may be over, but state fair season is still in full swing. This week you can help us with stories inspired by both of those topics.

The U.S. dominated the medal count in team sports at the London Olympics. Gold medal in hand, U.S. Olympic soccer goalie Hope Solo said “Honestly, it’s the first time in my athletic career that I felt like it was a true team.”
That made us wonder: What makes a team a “true team”? So we want to hear YOUR stories of amazing teamwork. Tell us about the sports team, job team, community or other team you’ve been a part of that felt most “true” to you.

The biggest state fairs in the country happen in August and September. In most places, they began as agricultural showcases — and we want to know if and why fairs are still relevant today.
So what do you like best about your state fair? Maybe it’s that row of antique tractors that no one else seems to know about, or the sound of all the rides going at once — or the guy who does the same knife presentation on a loop all day, every day … every year?
Tell us about the experience that defines the fair for you. Share your story here or send us a sound from your fair.
