The first Olympic blunder goes to the telecommunications department. North Korea was angry about flag mix up. Well, the country is often angry about something, but this time they have a right. A South Korean flag was shown next to the North Korean women’s soccer team. In protest, the North Korean team left the field for an hour. Afterwards, they went on to win the match. Was this a political statement? I am going 2 to 1 odds that it was. North Korea continues to be a thorn in the side of democracy and civil rights, and yet we allow them to compete.
What countries should not compete in the Olympics?
Disneyland is not the happiest place on earth right now. In fact, Race Riots in Anaheim have made the sun shine paradise more like an inferno waiting to explode. With recent police shootings under scrutiny and unruly public protests taking to the streets, Anaheim is bringing out the riot gear and California is hoping the unrest does not spread into Los Angeles. With an industry based on tourism and smiles, Anaheim’s mayor is reaching his boiling point with the citizens who are looking for their own voice and justice.
Where is a place you would like to vacation but it is too dangerous?
It was a game to remember, if only for 19,000 fans. MLS All Stars beat the European Champion in stoppage time 3-2. The soccer stars displayed their talent. David Beckham had his classic set pieces. John Terry of Chelsea had a brilliant header for a goal, as the talented Frank Lampard showcased why he is one of the best. But the plucky MLS stars, led by Del Rosario, Donavan, and Henry, gave the young Wondolowski a chance to display his scoring prowess. Eddie Johnson finished the scoring when penalty kicks were all but determined. The game was well done on all levels. The talent, play, venue and pageantry were impressive. Congratulations to Chester and the Philadelphia Union.
