Really, Shaun White.

Really? Shaun White. Congrats on your gold medal. Now guess where I think you can put it. After watching your great run and feeling stoked to be an American I watch you self celebrate, hoist the Stars and Stripes and wrap yourself in them, then let the flag fall to touch the ground and drag it off, even stepping on it as you exit the event...so disrespectful that I will never support anything you represent from here on out. Sorry, brah, that crossed the line.. you'll never be bigger than that flag.

- 1 fan of a long time.

Yeah my immediate reaction was the same as yours, I can't stand to see the flag treated badly.

But I kept telling myself it was a young guy all caught up in the moment and he probably didn't even realize what he was doing. I have a feeling he would go back and change it if he could.

Well, I'm glad he did. He's always seemed like an upright guy. After I slept on it I felt a little like I was too harsh, but, no, I needed to say something...glad he said sorry. A gold at 31and sticking that whatever the heck it was, holy smoke, man!! USA#1
