Conflicted

I'm truly conflicted watching this years' Olympic games.

First there was the China/Tibet controversy, then the women's gymnastic age controversy, and now I'm not sure whether to cheer for the Chinese or American teams!

Born in America, I've been cheering for America in past Olympics; partially because I didn't think the Chinese teams were all that great. But there's something in the fact that the Olympic games are being held in Beijing AND the Chinese teams are strong contenders makes me want to cheer for them too!

It's like "home team advantage" cheering.

All these things came to a peak during the women gymnastic event; oh the drama! I cheered for the American team, then the Chinese team, stopped myself, then continued to cheer for them! Yes, like a schizo.

Well, if the Chinese spectators can cheer for all the teams, then I'm going to do the same.

I mean, how can you not cheer for guns like these:
