Cool Have You Avoided the Olympics Because of Anti-American US Athletes?

Here's an American medalist who is proud to represent her country....in taekwondo, no less.



At least watch the very end, to see a master class on how an Olympian should conduct herself.






Note NBC cut off the rest, because apparently holding our flag over her head is offensive to someone.

Yep avoiding 90%of it, I flip channels to it on occasion. Watched some rowing and sync diving. Usually I'd watch most of it.

Have not watched a single minute of it. I heard this morning that the ratings are in the tank. Hope NBC looses their ass on this

I have avoided them because of the anti-American Americans, yes. Also because of the rules allowing trans to compete in their chosen sex, AND because the chick that smoked pot weeks before competing was tossed while the Anti-Americans go unchecked.

Basically it is an American cluster ****. How bad is it when EVERY OTHER country makes us look like shit?

Not avoiding it, just have zero interest.

I heard they put the US/France basketball games on Peacock, seemed to piss off a lot of people.

I watched some swimming yesterday at a restaurant, but havenít watched at home. I donít care to see athletes disgrace our country looking for attention like little children.

Avoiding NBC. Their advertising over the last couple months has been totally annoying.

I gave up on that bullshit years ago. About the only thing I see a little of is if it shows up as I'm watching the news.
