Finally…The most exciting basketball game at the 2012 Olympic !!
First of all, thank you TVRI for showing Basketball at 2012 Olympic even though they only show USA’s dream team. I was hoping for more game beside them but at least they still show it
You know I love NBA but when it comes to Olympic, I always cheer the other team. I have nothing against USA, it’s just I hate predictable game (just like I hate predictable movie).
The first game was USA against France. I thought France was going to give hard time against USA but I was disappointed when USA started leaving them behind. France seemed unable to pull themselves together again. I forgot in which quarter I started getting bored. I could see clearly that USA will win and knowing how it would end made me lose interest on the game. I still watched the whole game but without any excitement. The final result was 98-71.
The second was against Tunisia. At first, they looked promising. They hold their score close to USA…but them they started to trail down by over 10 points. And again, I lost interest at the game. The final result was 110-63.
The third game against Nigeria was the worst of all. I saw it a bit late and the difference was already over 20 points. Why bother seeing such predictable game. I turned off the TV without seeing the whole game. The final result (seeing it on the news the next day) was 156 – 73. Lucky I didn’t see such pathetic game.
Tonight… Finally, I can feel the excitement of basketball again. Read more of this post

Although this blog of mine rarely publish post about sport…but you can still see SPORTS in my category. Writing about sport is not as easy as writing about books, movies and music…but it doesn’t mean that I have forgotten that category.
I don’t remember since when I became an Olympic fan, all I remember is that 4 years ago, I did some short posts on Beijing Olympic. I enjoy watching almost ALL sports in Olympic…whatever sport the TV showed us and if I wasn’t busy, I watched it all…I even watched man wrestling match…I don’t understand the rule at all but watch it nevertheless.
Here are the posts I made 4 years ago:
There’s something about Olympic that I found magical, I think the spirit of togetherness and glory is one of the reasons I enjoyed Olympic.
Take a look at this song by my favorite band, Muse.
