Hey Newsday! Get the picture of that sweaty tatooed freak off your front page. It is sickening enough to know that we have sunk this low.

these overpaid circus freaks have no place in the Olympics. Tell Lebron, Kobe, Curly and the rest of the globetroders get back to the states, I think Scooby doo has another mystery they can solve. They are a disgrace.

John Wayne and George is a little bit upset because their mothers and sisters sleep with these type of athletes on daily basis. And throughout high school

The most successful country on Earth in international sports competition is Australia.

They have more medals in more sports per population than anyone. Let us not believe that beating the Aussies (or any team for that matter) is a forgone conclusion.

Basketball was invented in the U.S.A. and the highest level of play is our N.B.A.

There is (nor ever was) an excuse for losing a single game in any olympic games nor world championships.

Best of luck to our national team.

My mom and sister slept with quarterbacks and centerfielders. They would never touch this street trash. Redeem Team? Hardly. Just more proof the Olympics should go back to amatuers only.
