my first impresson on gallinari is that he is going to be very, very good.

will he be dirk good? that's yet to be seen... but he will certainly be better than, say, a nocioni. to compare him to other europeans i'd say he's at least as good as stojakovic and ginobili... and he has a very good chance to be better than both.

and yes, this is all off one summer legue game, and i could be dead dead wrong. but he looked very good, especially in the second half.

Ginobli is Argentinian.
Argentina is in South America, not Europe.

Lotsa Argentinians are of Italian descent, as is Ginobili (who in fact has dual Argentinian and Italian citizenship, according to Wikipedia). Close enuf.

Yet another example of U.S. Americans lacking maps.

Such as.

No, no. I was merely referencing that Miss America pageant contestant from a couple of years back. Hence my inclusion of "such as."

Didn't mean to offend. Sorry if I did.

Which, despite the fact that Ginobili played in Italy for a number of years, is of course a complete coincidence.

i'm not sure if you were being sarcastic or not so i'll just say that it's not a coincidence at all and move along from there.

Is anyone planning on watching the Olympics team until they hit the really tough competition?

I got bored with the Canada game right around halftime.

I would have watched an invasion of Canada.

I will perk up when the Olympics begin, not before.

i was watching the mets blow out the cardinals when a friend IMd me and reminded me they were on... i went "oh" for a second, then left the mets blow out on.

canada, well... canada sucks. hard.

that said, the US should win the gold medal this year. but again, they should win it every year, and haven't. so, yea. we'll see how things play out when they play real competition.
