    I'd hate to tell you this then, but England didn't qualify for the Olympics either, at least according to wikipedia (if I'm reading it correctly). See here--->http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Footbal...ummer_Olympics

    I think the U.S. will make it out of group play (they should beat Japan and Nigeria, of course they should have beaten Ghana at the last World Cup ), but it's just a matter of who they play in the quarters (hopefully not Argentina). Mind you all of this is extremely biased opinion .

    Americans will win it,no doubt.They have been waiting for this moment for so long and they want it so much and about China I doubt,maybe it will give them some momentum,but in the end it wont be enough.

    Yeah, there isn't really any doubt in my mind the US will win the gold in basketball. Their team is stacked. I mean they have Kobe and LeBron on the same team. Anything short of gold is a major disappointment. I really don't expect any of their games to be close.

    The only knock I have on the USA basketball team is the lack of big men. We have Dwight Howard, Chris Bosh, and Tayshaun Prince. Though, I don't know how much a threat Prince or Bosh will be in the low-post (I don't really follow the NBA). I am excited by the fact that Dwayne Wade seems healthy, and hopefully Lebron's ankle isn't in very bad shape. We should win the gold, and frankly I'll disappointed if we don't. Basketball is the one sport in America where there's never an excuse for our team to lose. For us, basketball is kind of the way hockey was in the Soviet Union.

    And many more..maybe one game will be close against Spain probably,theyre gonna kill Greece when they play them,they killed Canada 50 or 60 points,dont remeber already.But there are other players that should deserve the credit on the team like Carmelo,Jason Kidd,blah I dont know where Im going at here right now

    Prince aint even a big man.And Lebron ankle is fine already,he will in the next game and Wade is back in his 100%,the windmill said it all I think they are taking the gold,no wait they will take it.

    Re: 2008 Summer Olympics (Beijing)

    Whoot! Less than 10 days before the opening ceremony. Also, something I didn't know, Soccer starts before the opening ceremonies. Women start on the 6th of August and Men start on the 7th. So not too much longer before the competitions begin. And basketball starts on the 9th. http://en.beijing2008.cn/schedule/

    I can't wait. Here's to the U.S. beating Japan on the 7th (hopefully). Also, does anyone know where I can get a complete list of the Olympic squads?

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

    DOES HE LOOK LIKE A BITCH????????!?
