“We’re trying to get rid of the words ‘America’s Cup’, which has become a cliché for the sport.”
“We wanted to say ‘America Cup’ and ‘America’ and we wanted to create a brand, which would be something that felt a little bit more global.”
“So the brand is a bit more inclusive than the sport is,” he continued.
“We think it’s a great brand for our fans and for our business.”
The idea of using the word “America” was not a given, with the US Open champion being one of the few American players to not use the term.
“We were really trying to avoid a word that had a negative connotation,” says Johnson.
“It was like a ‘nigger’ or ‘monkey’.”
The word ‘America’, we’ve used since the beginning.
So it was important to avoid it.
But if we had to pick, I’d go with ‘the American’.
“We don’t have a ‘sport’ for this.”‘
A little bit of America’The word “america” does not appear in the official American Association of State Athletics, and was not mentioned in a statement released by the association on Friday.
Instead, the statement from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) said that the word was used in a “spiritual context” to reflect the “American character and ideals”.
“This is an opportunity to honor America’s national pride by reflecting upon the history of our country, and the people who make up that country, in a positive way,” the statement said.
“To ensure that all Americans feel comfortable and welcome, we are honoring the word ‘American’, and the American spirit, with a new national anthem.”
Johnson said he was not looking for a word “that’s negative”.
“I was hoping it would be a little more inclusive,” he said.
“I think a lot of people are like, ‘OK, I’m going to use that word, but I’m not going to call it that’.”
And I’m like, you know what, this is a little different.
It’s a little fun.
However, he said it was “absolutely not for me”.””
I’ve been playing the game for 25 years and I’ve never been a fan of the anthem,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.
However, he said it was “absolutely not for me”.
“We have a lot more respect for our troops than the anthem is for us, and so I think that’s why it’s so popular.
The anthem is not the main thing,” he explained.
He explained that the American flag had been a symbol of American patriotism since the US was founded in 1776.
“The anthem was a symbol, a rallying cry for us all to say, ‘Hey, we’re all in this together’,” he said, adding that he had no problem with the flag being used for a different reason.
“It’s a good symbol of our history, and of the American people, and what we stand for,” he concluded.
A new anthemThe announcement of a new anthem comes after the NFL announced on Friday that it would take the anthem off the field after games.
Johnson said that while he was “surprised” to see the anthem taken off the football field, he believed it would change the game.
“For me, the anthem really is a celebration of the country that we all live in, and I think people are going to find that it’s going to help them to celebrate,” he added.
After hearing the news, Johnson was not alone in his opposition.
“I don’t think that the anthem was the most patriotic thing in the world,” said commentator Michael Chew.
“And I think the people that have been in the game longer have seen it being taken off.
It was a step backwards.”
If it was going to be taken off then we’d have a new sport, so I’m really not sure.”
Johnson added that the “Star-Spangle Banner” should be used as the official anthem.”
They’re not even going to say that anymore, so that’s the sad thing,” said Chew, who has called on US President Donald Trump to use the flag to “promote the US flag”.”
That’s not America.
A country that’s been divided for a long time.”
