The Chinese have adopted some of the most revered American sporting customs, such as a) cameramen scanning the crowd for hot women and b) playing Queen's "We Will Rock You" during time-outs.
I have heard Freddie Mercury's song, if not his voice, during water polo and basketball contests. (It's a strange version; I don't know who sings it.) It was weirdest at basketball, because Germany was playing Greece at the time and I didn't know who "we" was. Were the Chinese just talking trash for future games?
And has the Chinese Communist Party paid ANY attention to the lyrics?
Buddy you're a young man, hard man
Shoutin' in the street gonna take on the world some day
You got blood on your face
You big disgrace
Wavin' your banner all over the place
