I always defend my Country when people call us the Arrogant Americans because I think the label is unfair. The more I watch this Olympics and read up on what the media and some athletes have to say the easier it gets to understand why so many people hate us.
If the only thing you heard about something came from the US media why wouldn’t you hate us? All that seems to matter to any of us is Gold and if you listen to the idiots on television you get gems like this from Nastia Liukin’s agent. Why the hell is this man making a comment about an athlete that ISN’T HIS? There is a way to say something. A time, a place and this was not it. How this fat slob got this job is beyond me.
Gabby Douglas had this to say when she found out Jordyn did not make the AA. It has to be the most obnoxious comment I have ever heard another gymnast make about a teammate during the competition.
“Everyone was talking about me and her (Wieber) and ‘the showdown’, and after Aly’s floor routine everyone got really shocked. But, all have to learn how to deal with disappointments. But I’m so proud of Aly. She deserved it.”
Don’t get me started on Hope Solo.
FYI, Michelle Kwan says differently Mr agent.
