I hope this group of thugs loses the rest of their games. The fact that they had to wear their hats sideways in the opening ceremonies just shows that they're more concerned with their image than representing their country. You're not playing for a paycheck you slugs, show some class while representing the USA.

Dirtbags. Hopefully when Kobe rapes someone in China he'll actually be prosecuted this time.

All hail to the furhrer from Merrick, NY. It would not suprise me one bit if you are still upset about Jesse Owens from the 1936 Olympics!!

And you are proud to have these money hungry, big headed, "all about me", losers representing our country?

I mentioned nothing about race, but you certainly seem to have it on your mind you dope.

We beat a Chinese basketball team!
Maybe next we can beat an African swim team.
Or possibly a Polish chess team.

Honch< your correct there for sure! Theres no glory in beating a bunch of dimwits that cant even fully open their eyes! But anyhow since we're on subjects... you mentioned an african swim team uum would they be capable of swimming the few thousand miles between U.S. and africa?? and if not, would boat captains report their floating bodies? just curious my maid and driver seem homesick
