Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Thats a photo of the U.S. women's bridge team when they won the Venice Cup championship in Shanghai, China last month.
They couldn't just accept the prize, no, they felt the need to inject politics into a thoroughly apolitical event.
The act has angered many and the United States Bridge Federation is deliberating (and handwringing) over what steps, if any, to take next.
I say, "Shame on you, hairbrained harpies. I never voted for Bill Clinton, but you can bet your medals I would never have gone on foreign soil and disrespected the office of the Presidency (even if the occupant deserved disrespect)."
Next time stick to playing cards.
