So the story that everyone is talking about outside of Paterno and Penn State this morning is that apparently every piece of clothing our athletes are wearing to the London Olympics later this month will be manufactured in China. USA! USA! Now you know I don't get political on this blog too much but this is flat out disgraceful. Actually it's kind of sneaky the American way but that's another story for another day. Plus I don't want to be put on a terror list on a Friday. But lawmakers now are calling for this apparel to be 'burned' and for the U.S. Olympic Committee to start over with American product and I agree 1,000%. I don't care if it's me and Hacksaw Jim Duggan in my parent's basement making seal skin swimming trunks for Michael Phelps one by one while watching old tapes of 80's wrestling. Actually that sounds like a Jon Henseler Make a Wish come to think of it. Anyhow bottom line is this has to get rectified and now that I've spread this news to sixes of other people I've done my part.
PS: How lucky is the Olympic Committee that Penn State decided to go Crazytown version 3.0 the same day this story came out. Like if you are a major business or organization and you've got some dirty laundry to air today is the day because it will get buried by the wackjobs in Happy Valley. Kind of like if you play rock, paper, scissors and you wait a split second to see what the other person is going to do before you decide? Bingo. Except instead of waiting to see if they go rock you wait to see if today's the day Penn State defends a Pedo-enabler. Semantics.
Double PS: Seriously though? This came out on July 1st of THIS YEAR. We are! Penn State!
