Gold Medal or Rubber Bracelet ?
In spirit of the Beijing Olympic Games, rubber bracelets sporting the 5 ring colors are being worn as proudly as a gold medal. Given away to the Opening Ceremonies guests, they have become somewhat of collector's items, especially since access to the Opening Ceremonies could cost up to $728 for a ticket. The only questionable part: bizarre Chinese slogans embossed into the bands saying things like "Smile, promise, protect the environment".
