2012 London Olympics

Post by SoMelo » Sun Jul 29, 2012 5:29 pm

I've been gone all weekend and was just watching the news.. USA won their first gold medal in woman's skeet. Seriously, they couldn't provide a better flag? It looked like the Walmart $2.99 special. It was probably made in China.

Kind of lame comment, I looked at the video expecting something odd, but the flags looked fine.

says you through by watching a video, this is not the winter Olympics where most medals are given out at one awards stand and much fewer countries, this is the summer Olympics with 2001 countries and multiple awards awards stands.

BTW, I am surprised I am telling a women this. The American flag would clearly not be able to hang down like it is if it was new silk screen. You can also look at the chineese flag and can see through it at the bottom, it looks like quality material.

I would hope the flags flown over the capitol would be better, I am sure the Queens Standard flown over Buckingham palace when she is in residence is better also, but you said they were silk screen and you are 100% incorrect on that. i must admit, I am sensing a little NOTO in you on this subject. you have come up with an idea and despite the evidence counters your thoughts, you are going to stick with your silly theroy. Did you see the flags used at other mdeal ceremonies?

How sad.
Liberalism is like an out-of-control 5 year old at McDonalds. All the talking to and admonishment won't make a difference. They have no concept of right or wrong, they are nothing more than narcissists.
