August 23 2008: Chicken in baseball

So if each animal represents a country, and each picture represents them winning that particular event, the scoreboard would be as follows:

  • First Place (3 appearances):     Rat & Rabbit
  • Second Place (2 appearances):     Tiger, Snake, Horse & Monkey
  • Third Place (1 appearance):     Ox, Dragon, Sheep, Dog & Pig

We have a two way tie for first place. XD Hehe!

Don’t forget to catch the closing ceremony tonight!

Special shoutout to Selvie for helping me to save these images!!
