Two Things You Won’t See at the Summer 2008 Olympics

Babies and banners.

The Chinese Olympic organizers have put out a spectator’s guide book that includes some common sense bans: drunkenness, nudity, and gambling, to name a few. But also included in the ban are banners supporting individual athletes or teams.

That’s right. You’ll be seeing no “Go Phelps” signs at swim meets. No “Way to Go Shannon” posters at gymnastics events.

While babies aren’t completely banned, parents are encouraged to leave them at home.
