Interesting timing but has anyone actually been watching the Olympics to care?

How about a windy day and poorly attached simple!
We will have no common sense in these here threads you scallywag!
I agree. It must be a really slow news day if the folks on ATS are debating a flag falling.
Seriously people, get a grip. The flag fell down, big deal! Why does it "have to be" planned? Why "must" it be an "omen"?
I think a lot of people here need to reintroduce themselves to the force of gravity. Stand on a chair and jump off, is that an "omen" of something, or a message? No, it's you jumping off a chair, and gravity doing the rest for you.
Oh, and coincidences most certainly do exist.

Pretty bizarre alright, and perhaps more than a coincidence? The flag falls off the mounting bar, precisely on time, right immediately after the part in the song that says "That our flag was still there"
Additional, clearer video here:

Just. Too. WEIRD!
Synchronicity? Bad Omen? A cheap trick? Political statement? Prophetic?
lol, cheap Chinese mountings? :shk:
The flag had already settled in the fixed, raised position! I mean I could see it maybe as it was being raised cause of the additional stress, but that timing is just off the hook!edit on Wed Aug 8th 2012 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)

As of writing this America has won 71 medals. 30 gold, 19 silver, and 22 bronze. Out of 71 times the National Anthem was played during medal awarding ceremonies, the flag fell one time.
So, what was the significance of this one event for people to conspire against the United States and cause the flag to fall during the medal ceremony?
