You didn't think that was going to go unanswered did you? Will get to to the non-basketball related topic in a moment, but first we have to talk about Team USA. They're going to smoke everyone in their pool, don't get too excited when they obliterate China by 40, the real test comes in the knockout stages. If you are a basketball fan of any kind, you have to watch when it gets to that round, the quality of play is outstanding. That being said, it's asinine to leave Bruce Bowen off the roster. He's the best defender on the team, he knows how to guard Manu and Parker better than anyone in the world, and they kept freaking Battier on the roster over him. Nice move. I know he's got a freakish alien bald head, and he played at Duke, but this could be a colossal error. If Manu goes for one of those 34 point games where he's just hitting dagger after dagger to beat our Red, White, and Blue, remember that Bruce Bowen is sitting in his street clothes watching it and shaking his head.
Now, onto the uprising that is the Seattle Seahawks. Frankly, I'm impressed that the co-author of this blog didn't complain that the refs hired Mike Shanahan to coach the Broncos 11 years ago, thus giving them the coach they needed to finally win a Super Bowl. Or that the refs drafted Terrell Davis, or that the refs traded down to avoid drafting Chris Paul. Or that the refs...you get the idea. Hey, did you know they have a new reality series this year on NBC where they follow around Seahawk fans all season long? It's called "The Sorest Loser".
Anyway, there is one cold hard fact that the Seahawk fans will have to live with as long as their team is in existence. They had to leave the AFC West to become a contender. They tucked their tail between their legs and bravely ran away.
At the risk of offending anyone else who may read this blog, and on a separate subject, Go Ducks.
