I can admire the athletic talent and despise the attitude. It's really old school but we were taught to win and lose with respect. Somehow that lesson hasn't gotten to many athletes these days. I guess it's the Me First attitude. . .
What these whiny little spoiled brats don't understand is that the National Colors and Anthem represent the whole country, not its leadership, nor a political party. Their right to object and protest is because of that flag / anthem / pledge, etc.
I am glad that the US Team won. I doubt that they understand that they were acting as ambassadors for our country, not just soccer players. If I were the coach they would have understood this and if they didn't want to act professionally they would have stayed home regardless of how good a player they are.
What is making me smile is that somewhere there is an American who is proudly standing for the flag, at the ready to defend it, and doesn't really give a crap about some activist that can kick a ball.
Wife is still on leave with the babe, so she tries to send me pictures everyday.
Yesterday, little man put on his hearing protection for the first time.
