So "San Francisco is Bracing" for the impending protests at the torch running today. Apparently San Francisco is the only city in the US where they will be doing any Olympic torch related activity. Yeah, whoever didn't see the Tibet/human rights/environmental protest implications of this should lose their job. Its basically going to be ape. I am envisioning a gang of police trying to hold back bandanna-masked activists with super-soakers. Actually, that could be pretty entertaining. Maybe they should just give the torch runners some water balloons and have some fun with it. Not sure what time that is going on today, but I imagine it will make some of the major news outlets so I am probably not needed on the ground reporting my findings.
Football this evening. I am going to try not to tear my hamstring again, good times. Its all worth it to see Hiro's fluorescent UnderArmour outfits.
Keep it grimey.
*Update - check out what the official China Olympics website has to say about the torch in San Francisco
"San Francisco embraces Olympic flame with pride" Hmmmm.
