Go to ESPN, you will find that this game was quoted as “a basketball game of historic import and global impact” and “the game’s most portentous moment since Bird played Magic in the 1979 NCAA championship, or Michael Jordan scored 63 on the Boston Celtics in the NBA playoffs”. Are you really a sports fan?

Your flighty comments about the game aren’t worthwhile and you should not be a correspondent for Olympic events. To become an Olympian requires years of training and focus; these women are champion athletes. You’re a champion nothing.

And of course, if he’s a champion nothing, but you’re taking the time to respond, what does that make you? Ah, a trainee. Of course.
