and... World Peace!
USA can vote for the athlete(s) to carry the Flag in opening ceremony.
Davis and White are up for a nomination to carry the flag! (if they don't win I'm hoping for Kikkan!)
Celebrating the Excellence of #VirtueMoir
But I don't see any indication that the NBC "voting" results will carry any official weight as to who really becomes the flagbearer(s).

My hunch is that the NBC thing is merely a "survey" -- fun, but utterly meaningless.
I believe you are correct..they vote amoung themselves....looks like this is just marketing....I am seeing a chevy ad....if you "Like" this or "Tweet" that, the more hits they get and the more they can charge Chevy....

Uhh...how do two people carry one flag??
