I've never been a real big fan of the olyimpics.
Yeah, the basketball team this time around blows. They don't even have our best of the best, and its oblivious why: For instance Shaq, is a very good player but him and others like Kobe don't want to go over there to play and not get paid a dime. If they went over there and had a injury, they got hurt for no money and it would kill there multi-million dollar carrers.
I'm a football fan myself, thats about the only sport I watch and like.

I think its because there is no one to pull against anymore. In the not to distant past during the cold war victories at the Olympics were just as decisive as battefield victories. Anyone remeber the 1980 winter Olympics when the Americans beat the soviets. ..... The Olympics would be drawing hug crowds right now if the Terrorists had a team because everyone would have someone to pull against.
