Why, in the opening of the olympic games when the americans came into the
stadium did some of our black atheletes where their hats side ways. I don't
know about you but it was very embarrasing to me.
because they like them that way?By Andrew Pollack on 08/21/2008 at 10:49 PM EDT
All of our athletes can wear their hat any way they like. I don't think you
can be the greatest in the world at anything without some arrogance creeping
in.

Each event is counted as only one medal. In that case, China does have the
largest number in gold.
However if we count all the gold medals awarded in total, including all team
member medals awarded, what would the medal count be then?

I find it weird that we go by the "total amount of medals won" as being the
best....who effin cares about Bronze as much as Gold.....okay it's nice to get
any medal at all but seriously the U.S thinks they're all baddass with like 32
Medals with like 12 bronze and 12 silver ha ha. Ummmmm only 8 Gold?

Regards,

I live in Vancouver.... GO CANADA

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
