Baloney!

1) Any American who screws up anywhere gets front page headlines immediately. That's how our media works. The picture the media painted of our Olympic Team was distorted.

2) The team finished 2nd in total medals and absolutely dominated at at least of the venues. It sort of reminded me of the coverage of the last Summer games. The US team won an absolute avalanche of medals only to be ignored because a bunch of stupid NBA thugs got schooled by Puerto Rico in the prelim rounds.

We won a bunch of medals in stupid X-style "sports" that we invented. If it wasn't for those, we would have been buried by Latvia (or similar).

4 or 8 years from now, the countries that can afford to coddle its children to do crap-sport stuff will start edging us, just like we have lost the edge in Basketball.
