    Two days ago on ABC's "The View" the group discussed an unsual photo involving Northwestern's National Champion Woman's Lacross team and President GW.

    What was so unusual about it? The footgear.

    Despite being well dressed and smiling for the photos, it appears that some of the players on the team decided to execute a form of a silent protest to the war in Iraq by wearing flip-flops, instead of regular shoes, to the photo shoot.

    :rotflmao:

    Oh, that was both too easy and too funny!

    A more noticable statement was when John Elway snubbed the President in order to play golf after winning the Superbowl. (I think we all remember who the President was then....)

    If you hadn't pointed it out, I doubt too many would have noticed. Especially with all those smiles on their faces.

    I recall a time when the father of a soldier killed oveseas refused to shake the hand of the president when visiting the White House. Oh wait, my bad. That was a different president.

    The very left girl has a red braclet on, she must be a PETA member and is protesting the consumption of meat.

    :laugh:

    So, was this a slow news day or something? Is that the most "controversial" thing that happened?
    There was a story about a decade or so ago that mentioned how a few members of the NCAA champion womens swimming team did not wear undies when they met Clinton at the White House. :blah2:
