• Mission Accomplished … For Redeem Team

Dwayne Wade returns to kill it as he does playing ball, as Henry Casey returns to blog. Coincidence? Maybe.

I’ve returned … for Olympic Basketball? I thank Collin for getting me into these games.

No way? Way. I mean, I want to see the USA win here because … well why? Is it because we should win the basketball gold? Maybe? What’s easier to say would be that the Spanish National Basketball team’s blatant public racism makes them Alaska in D2: The Mighty Ducks, the token D-Bag team, that the Americans frequently are. Somehow, the America team isn’t the D Bag team for once, and, well, it’s fun to have a reason to root for the basketball powers that are Kobe, LeBron, Dwayne, Bosh, Paul, Tayshaun, Kidd, etc., all at the same time. It’s weird, granted, but it is fun.

My Time Warner cable box has been wigging out all of this fourth quarter I’ve been aware of the game for. I’m so taking this POS into Time Warner on Monday. I’ve lost about 5 minutes to it’s fuckuppery.

With, 32.9 left, 8 Pt USA lead: “Rubio has to foul. … And then a technical foul on Ricky Rubio.”

Rubio, has the least masculine name in basketball history, I’m sure. It’s a name reminiscent of Chris Tucker’s Ruby Rhod from The Fifth Element. Sauter attributed for that connection.

Bill Walton claims that Kobe is the most popular non Chinese player in these games. I wonder for a second if he said Of The Olympics … he can’t have said that. What about Phelps … Wait, he did. “The most popular non Chinese athlete here in China.” But, then again, I don’t think it’s actually Walton. Someone working aside that incorrect gentleman refers to him as Mike. During the aftermath of the game, it turns out the guy in question is Mike Breen.

Mike Breen ... a known name to some?
Mike Breen ... a known name to some?

Even Kobe would say it’s Phelps, as that well circulated video of Kobe praising Phelps would say.

… and back to the subject at hand, a few minutes ago, the major moment that had the applause working was after a major 3 point shot from Wade, it seems as if the lead might be safe, and back to the moment …

USA has won. I hate to admit it, but I’ve now cheered for Kobe Bryant and Dwayne Wade in the same game. Not to mention LBJ.

  1. The reason for Kobe being the most popular non-Chinese player is derived most likely from the fact that his jersey is the number one in terms of sales.

    As they say, it’s all about the Benjamins or I guess in this case, the Maos (I think he’s still on the 100 yuan).
