Puerto Rico kickin' US' butt...

in B-ball right now - up 18 in the third.

I'm a little torn here...it's tough to dislike all these NBA players and still root for them just because they're American. To me, there hasn't been a dream team since the original dream team and these guys don't match up, in my less-than-knowledgeable opinion. I almost want to see PR knock 'em off (I know that sounds un-patriotic, but hey, my girlfriend's Puerto Rican and I'll root for her native land).

Basketball sucks, the summer olympics are horrible. And this "US" team sure as hell doesn't represent me. When will more people start to realize how horrible basketball is.

The irony is that the rest of the world seems to think that basketball isn't horrible and has players who understand the game ain't about just dunking the ****ing ball and getting on ESPN.

I feel sorry for Larry Brown.

I'm lovin it. Most of them are overpaid

and expect the world to lay down for us.

I hope that we don't win a medal because them maybe just maybe we will send out best as opposed to a few ball hogs.

pathetic.

Yeah klingsor...

it's a different game out there. I actually watched a bit of the game and P.R. took it to 'em. They hustled, forced turnovers, and moved the ball well while the U.S. tried to get it to Duncan at every opportunity, and when that wasn't available, tried to sink some bombs. These guys must be shocked as all heck.

Yeah, I watched about 50 percent of it off and on. Puerto Rico played some real BBall.

Just goes to show how practice and determination pay off--even against a more talented team.

A lot more people feel that way about hockey. I'm sure that they feel that the US hockey team does not represent them. And they question how people can sit and watch this stupid sport with ice and sticks.
A little more open mind and maybe hockey would have a little more acceptance.
