Olympic Fever

Each time some manifestation of international sport occurs we are gripped with fervour,or is it fever. So it is good to have a Chinese citizen in the house on this day when the Olympics open.
I think she is a bit non-plussed about why everyone isn't just totally in love with the Chinese State (as she is required to be - see below or here)
But it is good to have someone who is so proud of her country with us today. This mornign as we watched 5 mins of breakfast TV she said to me "What does 'Bag China' mean?"
I didn't quite understand until I saw the little footnote on the screen which said "Everyone takes opportunity to Bag China!"
I was a little sad to have to explain to her what this meant.
