Another Pet Peeve

Postby Mookie4ever » Fri Dec 09, 2005 11:00 pm

So this athlete is being interviewed on TV. And they introduce her as being a "bronze medal winner".

Sorry but you didn't win anything. You lost. In fact two people beat you.

Just another little pet peeve of mine. Sorry about the rant. I'll try not to post every little thing that pops into my head. :-[

Wouldn't that be a good interview Mook?

How many Olympic medals do others on this board have? Granted they fell short of their ultimate goal, but it's better than any of us have ever done.

Of course it probably upsets her to be reminded how she failed :-b

Mookie must have "won" the bronze at something for it to bug him this bad......

Hehehe. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
