 Gives me goose bumps. Love to watch this guy run and what a class act he is personally.

He is even from one of those countries that others say we have sold short or bear marketed down into poverty, Jamaica.  What gives?  Doesn't he know he is supposed to be tossing bombs in solidarity with his friends and our enemies?  Is something rotten in the State of Denmark or is this man for real?  Bless him and all who are like him.

it was pretty special.  better than many of our own do...even here at home.  i hope it was an example to follow.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

That was almost as impressive as watching him run.

I would have to agree he is a class act.  A lot of American's don't show that much respect to the Stars and Strips.

i also enjoyed watching the girls soccer team get their gold.  they really looked like they were belting it out when the national anthem was played. what we display before our flag, and at our national anthems playing, are a rare thing in the world.  i hope we never lose that....even if the Germans think that we look stupid smiling all the time  :-D
