re: Majority US-born Mexico softball team tosses uniforms in Olympic Village trash
I have no issue with trashing the uniforms. They were basically paid mercenaries. I mean are you going to get mad at veterans of the French Foreign Legion if they trash their uniforms after their enlistment is done?

My guess is that they knew they were mercenaries and while happy for the experience don't consider themselves Mexican. Plus there is the cargo issue. If they couldn't take the uniforms blame the Mexican Olympic Organizing Committee.

I'd need to see it. If it's a high quality comforter with a unique graphic on it, ok. I'll get it.


It's plain, it is part of Japan trying to make as little waste as possible. It's why everyone got the cardboard bed frames, so they could recycle them.

You mean to tell me that 14 American women in the Olympics are spoiled brats that have no gratitude or appreciation? This is the first time that’s ever happened.

This is weird.

It irks me when people aren't really representing their country but one they have a connection to on a technicality or something. Because you know there's someone culturally embedded in the country who would kill for the opportunity to represent them on the world stage.

How many non American athletes come and train in America then go home to win? That's another one that just seems sort of weird. I get why they do it, but it still seems off.



Im with you.

How many get there and then quit?
