Puerto Rico, Guam, The US Virgin Islands, they all get their own Olympic Delegation for Torino. They all have just one non voting representative in the House, just like us, here in DC. So, why not a DC Olympic Team? Sounds good by me. They’ve assembled a Curling Team to represent the District at Torino, assuming they can convince the IOC to let them in. From the FAQ comes this gem:
If someone wins a medal, what song will be played at the podium?
Good question. Since we are Americans, it would still be the “Star Spangled Banner” just like the U.S. Olympic teams do. Hoewever, we’d love to get a a go-go version of the song made by Chuck Brown.
We fully back the DCOC for IOC recognition in Torino.
