That's pretty awesome.
That's fucking awesome. And bonus points for getting away and keeping the sign. The perfect Olympics souvenir!
Fantastic. Nicely played, Mark!
The fact that he photographed it and eagerly sent it in indicates that this was for self-serving effect, not any type of statement.
But cute nonetheless.
Wow, he is sooo cool. I wish political signs were banned in the US as well.
@4... Been reading long? He was photographed, not the same as photographing oneself.
I'm not going to speculate on his intentions. Whatever works for me in this case.
wow, way to make the U.S look like idiots over seas. Oh and way to look like an idiot for having a stupid sign in the nosebleed section of a venue.
Yeah! And I'm sure the photographer is a complete stranger, who happens to read Slog, and is, in fact, a Slog tipper!
Been thinking long? Idiot.
Right NON, 'cause you just KNOW those CBC/CCTV folks were all, "Hey, is that THE Mark Siano holding up that 'USA Out Of Iraq' sign? DUDE! LOVED 'Soft Rock Extravaganza'! And that Bollywood SHIT - priceless!"
'cause MARK is TOTALLY an OBAMA-LEVEL CELEBRITY, yo'!
(CAPS provided for the sarcasm-impared)
Who would even go to that guys blog?
I don't get it.

Idiots over seas? Like in an aeroplane over the sea or something? Maybe a retard in a dirigible?
Um, #13, at least use some funny or accurate hipster accessories. Ritalin? PBR? Body piercings? Ipods? Vampire Weekend? You're describing suburban teenage boys from Minnesota, not Seattle hipsters.
I give up commenting on Slog, the end.
That shit should be legendary not just a meme. NBC sucks.
13 is my favorite Slog troll this year.
I hope Mark in planning on exiting China before the games end. It wouldn't surprise me if there were suddenly problems with his visa.
they must have done that on '30 rock'....
The Internets WINS again!
They have peanut butter flavored Swedish Fish? That rules! I want some.
@8. Oooh... this could go on for days.
sorry abby, they're most likely a myth, but don't lose hope. i've tried to catch them for years, like my father before me. in fact, i remember when i was a wee ladd...oops, here comes security...
(sucks own dick, turns into rainbow, vanishes)
@13: Yawn. Your shit is tired.
NBC is afraid to show these things because China will pull the plug. Just ask CNN.
He's an idiot. And lucky he isn't rotting in a Chinese prison somewhere.
I'm praying to Chebus that Non honors their vow...
Sorry, Non's pledge to go comment-free on SLOG lasted a measly 1:23.
What a wuss.
It might have been dangerous, but hey, he got away with it. Good for him. Now if his sign had said "China out of Tibet", he likely would have been roughed up and out of there, very quickly.
And screw NBC.
This guy is never gonna make it out of China alive. If he does, I'm sure we're all gonna have to pay ten bucks to hear this story at The Rendezvous.
Also, comment #20 is hilarious.
Only Mark Siano...jeez...what a master of self promotion.
seriously, if i held a sign that said something like that at safeco field, i bet an usher would come down and say "please lose the sign" and that would be it. difference is, i wouldn't immediately tip the slog off to how rad and dangerous i was.
I think I've fallen in love with the Swedish Fisherman.
the swedish fisherman rides alone, baby. maybe in the next life...
(winks, puts on sparkly vest, vanishes)
"seriously, if i held a sign that said something like that at safeco field..."
The fact that you don't understand the difference between traveling 5 miles to Safeco Field, and 5000 miles to Beijing, and that you equate a Mariners ballgame with the Olympics, really doesn't help your analogy all that much. But, it was a cute read.
