This article is part of the The Great American Reach Around series.
The end is here! We have reached the last stop on our journey around the world. It's the lucky 13th installment of the Great American Reach Around and we are bursting at the buttons with foreign representatives. I'm not going to get all maudlin here at the beginning (I'll save the touchy-feely comments for the end) because we have so many great articles.
Two cities, one state; Arizona. It is a state I have written about many times and have visited more than I care, but I'm no local. For the ground-eye-view of Arizona I turn to Rick in Tucson and Jeffrey in Phoenix.
Following their articles we have our final parade of foreign GARA reps and I would like to think we have saved some of the best for last. Mark K. is covering Santiago in Chile, Valerio is covering Italy, SinSalvador is on point in Denmark, Maria is here to tell us all about Spain, and Zagreb is covered by Ozren.

Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
