How to beat the post-olympic blues

London 2012: how to shake

 

the post-Olympic

Just because the Olympics is over, it doesn't mean there's nothing left to look forward to. Here's a pick of the brightest spots on the horizon – from arts to politics and even sport!

The Expendables 2

 Saddle up and switch your brain off for a big, dumb ensemble film that follows a plethora of action heroes (Stallone, Arnie, Statham, Van Damme) on a revenge rampage after one of their number is killed. The standup comedian Russell Kane recently described the movie as "a guilt-free way to ironically savour a masculinity now denounced and mocked; a roaring splurge of outlawed hormone". So that should release the pent-up emotions now lacking an outlet post-Games.

Ryder Cup

Golf will join the Olympic fold in four years, but this year's outstanding event is the Ryder Cup, where the best players from America and Europe will do battle over three days of mounting tension in Medinah, Illinois. Europe are defending champions, having won four of the last five events, and will boast three of the top four players in the world, but the US captain, Davis Love III, believes that his are the players in form. 28-30 September

The US presidential election

The most expensive election in US history – estimates put the total spend at nearly $6bn – nears its November polling day, with both the Republicans and Democrats promising their way is the one true path to a spectacular American comeback. While the idea of a win for Mitt Romney and his new super-rightwing running-mate Paul Ryan might send shivers through liberal hearts, the contest promises to be fascinating.
