Team USA is way too good compared to rest of world, and that’s actually a bad thing - Olympics - CBSSports.com
So I guess what I’m saying is, I don’t know what realistic alternative I’d rather see. But I don’t want to see this, so maybe I should just quit watching. Oh, wait — I already have. This isn’t 1992 when we watched our motivated NBA stars prove, as if anyone doubted it, that we had the best basketball players in the world. Of course we had the best basketball players in the world in 1992. We do in 2012. And we will in 2096.
We’re IBM. We’re the Yankees. We’re too big to fail, though somehow we manage from time to time. Maybe we’ll manage again during the 2012 Olympics, which would be mortifying, but that’s where we are with Team USA. That’s where I am, anyway — can’t enjoy blowouts, can’t appreciate anything less.
