Default Re: Random Thoughts

I've immersed myself in the Olympics for the last two weeks. Every 4 years I get right into it. But the thought has struck me more than once during medal ceremonies.....just how many countries have waaaaay cooler national anthems than we do.

I mean, as much as I love being "young and free" and "girt by sea" (honestly, WTF is up with girt by sea anyway?!?!), some nations just have it when it comes to a stirring tune to get all patriotic to. Really makes me wish ours was better composed.
