I just saw NC do their line up thing or whatever. I don't watch African round ball;D It looks like a cool if expensive setup.

I hate when they use the Military for their own Political Ends. Yet this was to give Thanks for Vets. Wonder how much this little extravaganza cost the American taxpayer?

It was to give thanks to the vets but I wonder how many vets actually got to watch it? I mean there were so few seats and so many of them were given to high ranking folks and many to the booster clubs of both teams. I guess if it made vets happy to watch on TV then it was worth it.

Well it did give Obama a Second appearance on TV to tell all how he got Congress to work together to take care fo these vets and their families. At least he emphasized on the hiring of handicapped Vets this time.

Well even though he's doing it for partly political gain it is good to remind people of vets and the need to care for them. That shouldn't be just one day out of the year either but every day.
