Did you know NFL players weren't even on the field for the national anthem until 2009 when the department of defense started sending the NFL bags of cash to stage patriotic displays before games. Hear that right wingers, your patriotism is a government conspiracy.
Back to the cosplay, I went to the big cosplay contest they had at RCCC which was the first time I had ever been to one. It was fun but I was a bit underwhelmed. There were a few really great costumes, but I felt like I had seen nicer costumes just walking the floor earlier that day. Also the categories were a bit off. People with really elaborate costumes that have obviously been doing this a long time were grouped in with people who had only spend a few hours on theirs. It didn't seem very fair. Maybe next year I'll have to go to the one ECCC does and see how they do it.
