    Exclamation Hellas good: Greeks score big fat upset of USA

    Whatever happend to the "Dream Team" and the US being feared by all competitors when stepping onto the hardwood! Greece upset the US squad 101-95, so now the US team will be playing for the BRONZE medal... again!

    I watched this game up until halftime last night, I haven't been able to sleep lately, and at one point in the second quarter the Greeks had a 17 point swing! That's no typo either, the US was up by 12 points and Greece came storming back and went in leading at halftime 45-41.

    These NBAers were suppose to be the "ringers"! Obviously, basketball is becoming a more global sport and is not being dominated by the US any more. It use to be fun to watch the "Dream Team" run up and down the court and score at will, but there isn't such a thing anymore because the ultimate "Dream Team" would consist of not only players from the US but from around the world!

    Here's the story regarding the game on yahoo, I like their title so I guess I need to at least include the link to their story

    That's right! Your parents are there right now (Greece)! Is it where your family comes from?

    Another great example showing that having a group of athletes with the most talent often doesn't translate to having the best team. Are you listening Cowboys?

    For the most part. My dad is 3rd generation greek in the united states. My mom is mostly german & irish. I guess that makes me 4th generation greek then yes?

    Someday I'd love to go over there and visit...my parents are already talking about going back next year for the whole summer and letting come visit for a few weeks over there with them so we'll see.
