I quit caring about pro basketball at least 10 years ago--right around their last strike; it looks like there may be a rush to join my bandwagon here really soon. But I'm far too cynical to be objective about the state of sports anyway. Here's my 2 cents; USA Olympic Basketball is done. We can't get these little millionaires to care enough to beat lanky Wal-Mart geeks from Argentina? And I'm happy for them but could not actually care less about how the Americans "came through" in the bronze medal game and looked so great; that's too little too late. Thank God for pre-season football. Maybe Scrubs will be back on by Tuesday; I sure hope so.
This is my ending? Okay, yeah, this is my ending. I am not as dumb as your typical Arizona high school kid; I can find Iraq on a map. I even know the basic shape of Iraq, and where it's sandwiched, sort of. I also know that Italy is that little piece of land in Europe that looks like a boot. Are you with me? Do you see where I'm going with this? As far as Argentina goes, my GUESS among the 7 continents would be to START looking somewhere in South America. And I would have to "search" from top to bottom; I don't fucking know where Argentina is, don't know what its shape is, or anything about its people or history. Do they even have basketballs in Argentina; well, obviously they do. They must have some impressive college and pro leagues down there in old Argentina, too, huh? Now, next Olympics, if we Americans put together a Soccer team that can beat Argentina, then I will obviously have to shut the hell up. But I am ashamed of USA basketball in 2004.
