    Yet another power-screwing of the U.S. by the refs in the semifinal game with Greece.

    Greece throwing Red Grange clear-out stiff-arms every trip down the court, running moving screens that look like Vince Lombardi's Packer sweep, and of course the Euro-soccer-pussy arm-flailing, flopping and face-gaping on every possession pays off with the calls by the refs. LeBron and Wade both get two fouls in the space of about three minutes.

    You gotta bury these fuckers -- don't allow the game to stay close enough to let the refs fuck you out of it, because if you do, they will.

    Fraschilla is clucking approvingly that the U.S. is doing a better job playing "halfcourt position defense," "not gambling,' and "using more of the clock." Yeah, they're also up by 3, on pace to score about 70 points in the game. Terrific.

    U.S. down by 4 at halftime.

    The thing I've feared has happened -- the U.S. has lost its nerve, quit playing the way it needs to, listened to the simpering and whimpering old fundamentalists pissing and moaning about "gambling defense" and "rushed offense," and gone back to play good old NBA retreat-and-react sludge-ball.

    Which will get them beat.

    You can't spell "bronze" without "Bron." ;D
