Be Silent Fools, Usain can do whatever he wishes

I’m still in awe right now. These last few days have literally been the best moments of my life. I feel such a heightened level of patriotism – it’s overwhelming. Our athletes have done and are doing a fine job at making us feel PROUD as Jamaicans.

Now Mr. Bolt has once again proven he has the right to pat his chest and do whatever else he wishes (Whether anyone feels it’s disrespectful or not), he earned it and i have no aplogies for saying that.  Kudos to Melanie Walker ( I didn’t know about her up until this morning, so i conveniently reffered to her as the “other person” to score a Gold apart from Mr. “Lighting” Bolt himself.

It’s our time and we deserve it; Go Jamaica Go!!!.

    Yay for Olympics, thats all I can say right now.
    So proud, so overwhelmed, pleased, content, happy.. expecting more great results from our athletes.
    But uncle Bruce. Whats going on for that national holiday? The reggae boys made the world cup (went on to win one match) and Jamaica got a day off to celebrate their achievement. So seeing that we've garnered 4 gold medals, 3 silver medals, two world records and an Olympic record [courtesy of Melaine :-)] along with topping the medal table (for track when the quality of medals are weighted). What does it take for us to get a day off? I get it.. if it aint broke don't fix it, huh? I agree. National holiday will be in order after the conclusion of the Olympics!

    A Usain Bolt race isn't completed without the usual boastful gestures. To me, it was either or either. Null cause I never loved it, and I hated it. But now that U.S decide to rag on him, MI LOVE IT. I hope the next time he wins he does all that and strip . Well errrm that would be for my own troubled personal desires.

    Now seriously, how ironic it is that as soon as U.S News anchormen HAVE to report something on Jamaican that doesn't deal with the usual crime and drugs; they have to add some negativity to our success.
    Just because he is happy and decides to celebrate a race before its over; he is a disrespectful freak.? A disrespect to the remaining competitors?

    *sigh*
    Guess your right, anything can fuel jealousy

    Anyways back to celebrating:

    Cant wait for the relays!!!
    *dances*
    High hopes 🙂
