  • the US v China basketball game

    "was a pretty quiet affair"? 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?

    Guys, really: surely you know that a blog post about women's volleyball with no pictures of the event is no blog post about women's volleyball at all?

    Jeff, I think this post mainly concerned a different sport for girls.

    Misty May-Treanor and Kerrie Walsh are incredible players having won over 100+ games around the world. 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.

    Er, is someone taking this a little bit seriously? I'm sure Misty and her lovely friend are wonderful people. 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.

    Re the bottom post, I think it was mainly a game of such importance because it was a match between the world's current superpower, the USA, and it's up-and-coming superpower, China - not necessarily because it was a great sporting event in its own right.
