"How Cool is That?"

Army Soldiers Unfurl UGA Flag in Iraq My sister sent me the above comment and this image, which I promptly deleted, thinking it was some lame PhotoShop treatment. But no, it's real - two Army soldiers actually did unfurl a University of Georgia flag at the presidential palace in Iraq [via LATimes]:

Fox-TV video showed 3rd Infantry tanks on the grounds of the sand-colored Old Presidential Palace, with large arches and a dome.
Army Capt. Chris Carter and another soldier waved a University of Georgia flag - red and black and white emblazoned with a large letter G - as they stood on the grounds of the palace complex.

Sheesh. This isn't some stupid football game, people.
