I agree... I thought they were terrific! Our American Olympians made me proud... all who won gold stood with their hands over their hearts during the National Anthem, many sang the lyrics.
I admire all of the athletes - not just the ones who won gold, silver or bronze. Just to compete at that level is incredible.
I'm kind of sorry the Olympics are over, however I'm happy I won't be seeing those stupid NBC commercials anymore. Ugh, do people actually watch those horribly stupid sit-coms they kept pitching??
I don’t know who you were watching, but at least 10 times I saw several of the US medal winners not holding there hand over there heart during the playing of our National Anthem. Particularly notable was the Williams sister. Who thought it was quite funny that our flag was blown off the bar that was holding it up. The whole time she just stood there with her hands by her waist holding the flowers she was given. I guess she was protesting being a millionaire. Also wasn’t any boxing shown?
With one exception: DREAM Teams.Professionals in the Olympics is rubbish. USA playing basketball against third world countries is as compelling as watching fat people eat spaghetti.
