The American flag does an impression of Serena Williams' Crip Walk routine.  I'll explain.

After Serena Williams disposed of Maria Sharapova with great ease (6-0, 6-1) to capture Olympic gold in the women's singles final on Saturday, she busted out a Crip Walk dance.  If you haven't seen the dance, there is a brilliant story posted on by the brilliant and handsomely devilish Brian Noe.  (I don't know why I nearly got hit by lightning just now).

Anyway, the American flag did a Crip Walk by flying off of the pole during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner.  Who's in charge of fastening the flag to the pole anyway?  This isn't some Joe Blow event.  We're talking about the freakin' Olympics here!

I'm curious if our own conspiracy theorist, Bruce Jacobs, will be making an issue out of the fact that the American flag flies away directly after the line, "That our flag was still there."  If anyone would make the argument that this was planned, it would be Bruce.  He's made arguments that Chris Webber threw the 1993 National Championship game between Michigan and North Carolina by calling a timeout.  He's also claimed that Rajon Rondo has a performance-enhancing substance in the arm wrap he wears.

Bruce's mind is a scary place.  Tune in on Monday at 3pm on 104.5 The Team.  Bruce and I will be broadcasting live from New York Giants' camp.  We'll see if he has anything crazy to say about the American flag then (or anything else in general for that matter).
