It's hard to believe but the Tokyo Olympics will begin next week! After being cancelled and rescheduled from last year, 2020, to this year 2021, hopes are high that they will actually take off. Sadly, fans are now banned due to the continuing outbreak of COVID19, with the athletes competing without the roar of the crowd. 

So, since you can't go to the Olympics, how do you watch the competition and add a little thrill to your life? Stay at Scottie Pippen's house in Chicago!

NBA Hall of Famer and Olympic gold medalist Scottie Pippen is offering up his Chicago-area house on Airbnb for a unique Olympic watch party. The former Chicago Bulls forward is offering three, one-night stays at his home on August 2nd, 4th, and 6th to watch all the Olympic events and enjoy the amenities of the house, which include an indoor and outdoor basketball court, pool, movie theater, and a fully stocked fridge. Booking opens at 1 p.m. (ET) on July 22nd.

Pippen writes, "In honor of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, I’m inviting basketball fans to my Chicago home to relive one of my career highlights - competing at the Olympic Games Barcelona 1992. I’m excited for you to cheer on the next generation of Olympians from my home court!"
