Back for the Olympics

Sorry for being non-existent for a while. I know a lot has been going on in the world of sports with the Olympics and all. Hope you all understand that I have some things to attend to. Anyway, the good news is I’m back and ready to dish out more analyses.

The opening ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics is the greatest ever in my book so far. China did a really good job despite bomb threats from terrorists groups. As of late, China is still leading the medal tally followed closely by United States. Records have been made and broken, with some interesting happenings on the side. But what’s more interesting though is what transpired at the basketball events.

United States’ Dream Team decimated Team China, literally. Even with a taller lineup and stellar Yao Ming on their side, Jason Kidd, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and the rest of the crew went sky high on them. In addition, Team Spain bannered by the two Gasols also quleched Team China’s attempt to regain composure in the basketball scene.

United States swimmer Mike Phelps also went Speedy Gonzales in the water, breaking and making records in 400m individual medley, 4 x 100m individual medley freestyle, and 200m freestyle.

More analyses and thoughts coming soon.
