Land of the Fr.....

video

Well, did the Chinese screw up the USA National Anthem on purpose or was it an accident? I guess we will never know. I understand that technical difficulties happen. I work in live television and I have seen it happen a time or two... BUT this is too much of a coincidence.

They cut it off right where it says "land of the free". Hmm, it only makes sense that a Communist country omits that line from playing in their country during the most high-profile medal ceremony so far... Poor Phelps, his mom, and even President Bush had to laugh it off, but I'm sure they got a little mad once they thought it over...

I've said it once and I'll say it again... It was a HUGE mistake to have the Olympics in China. Here's a great picture of the pollution there. Look closely and you might be able to see the Bird's Nest in the background. That's the Olympic Stadium.


Regardless, Phelps did an AWESOME job today and he even broke a World Record!


Go USA,

Well My Friend,
If that was a deliberate snub,it simply shows hidden character, and you know the Americans are laughing at thier fear of truths......

It was rather startling, but it played fully during the medal ceremony for the women's fencing, so I doubt it was deliberate. And anyway, how many Chinese would know the words to OUR national anthem? I sure couldn't tell you the words of any other country's national anthem.
