I have a confession to make

Olympic basketball hasn't been as much fun to watch since the U.S. started using pros, but I have always watched and rooted for the Americans while taking the opportunity to play amateur scout and eyeball the foreign talent on offer during the tournament,

But this tournament is different for me. Because for the first time (and hopefully only time) I won't be rooting for the good ol' U.S. of A. in the Olympic basketball tournament. I can't do it. And it has nothing to do with the players on the team, because many of them I very much like and respect (and three of them contributed to my first fantasy basketball title). It only has to do with one man. Him!

I am a diehard Maryland Terrapins fan (even though I went to VCU) going all the way back to the great Len Bias (RIP). And I loathe that man. There have been a lot of villains and loathesome characters that have roamed the ACC during my time as a Terrapins fan (and unfortunately some of them have been Terps!) but none as much as that man.

I know its unpatriotic. I know its terrible to root against the country in the Olympics, but I can't help it. As long as the brill cream scumball coaches our country, I can't get behind them. Every coach that has helmed team USA since I started watching international basketball in 1988 has had my full support except that man. I cheered like mad and cackled like a hyena when Greece beat them at the Worlds and I will feel the same way if they lose this time.

There I said it and I feel better. I am prepared for the onslaught, fire away!
