I wish this was an orange swatch so I could pretend it's from the Brazilian prison uniform he'll get if he gets extradited down there.  Dumbass.

Megan Rapinoe silver - Soccer
Brad Snyder bronze – Swimming
Adeline Gray  TEAM USA PATCH #48/99 - Wrestling

Like this one a lot.  Team USA Patch, numbered /99 and it's Adeline Gray.  What's not to like?

Good luck everyone and GO TEAM USA!


  1. Nice patch. As for Lochte... yeah.
    I heard the Paralympics budget was cut by like 60 million dollars because of shortfalls. That sucks for them. Maybe they should have their events first next time.

    It hit me a couple days ago that if Phelps retires, this will be an end of an era with Bolt retiring and Lochte probably done as well as the Gymnastics team cut down to 4 members, plus not to mention some of the older athletes probably not making it back. Its a shame that so much negativity has been brought out from these games when they really could hype it as an end of an era.

  2. This is really a nice blog in which you suggest a plenty of tricks tom play game efficiently.
