For all of you too drunk to catch the late night gold medal game for basketball, you missed one hell of a game. USA versus Spain. Despite losing to the USA a week ago by 37 points, the Spaniards were not gonna let gold slip that easily. Early in the 1st quarter Kobe and Lebron got into foul trouble, close game. D. Wade (underwater MVP. ha! inside joke) stepped up in their absence with great steals and some spectacular offense. Spain has a good squad and gave USA a good run for their money throughout the whole game. People played their hearts out. Early in the fourth Spain went on a run to cut the USA lead down to two. Then came an appearance from the Black Mamba, MVP Kobe Bryant, who contributed almost all of the offense in the 4th through assists and scoring, including an amazing 4 point play that hushed a rallying Spain following (see pic below). In the end they pulled it off. This team lived up to the hype. Congratulations Redeem Team, and thank you.
