Spain Vs China
 
Spain pathetic, all the game losing by 15, thank god for the las quarter that ended 25 - 11 for Spain.

Refereing is brutal, specially the last minute of game before overtime they robbed us.

Belsius 08-12-2008 07:38 AM

gasol is clutch today. Wish he was like this in the lakers more often.

Belsius 08-12-2008 07:44 AM

Spain beats them by 10 in overtime. Its embarrasing that this team was winning the whole game.

rapsfan087 08-12-2008 08:09 AM

Yeah, very bad game, Spain just defended hard the 4th and the overtime. About the refs, the whole game have been doing bad decisions, but that was clear, Chine is the host of the Games.

Chinese team is playing very well though, didn't think they were that good.

BTW, Pau is back!!!!1!!!!

Belsius 08-12-2008 08:33 AM

The only good thing of this is that we are not going to relax anymore in the whole tournament.

fancylad 08-12-2008 08:50 AM

So Spain lost?!

damn. I caught the whole 4th quarter and watched them tie it up at the end of regulation. I had to leave to catch my train so i couldn't watch the overtime. I thought for sure Spain would have had the momentum to get the victory.

Oh well. at least it wasn't an elimination match.

Belsius 08-12-2008 08:54 AM

No no, spain won by 10

fancylad 08-12-2008 09:00 AM

OH!

D'OH!

well then, what the hell are you guys so negative for?!
(don't answer that. I realize you're just being critical supporters - and China was winning by double digits)

Hope it, that's the second time they have a slow start and I don't like that. Good news we play against US the day 16 and not the next game.

Doc, good luck, but not for the next game ;)

Yeah, but he struggled when it counted in the 4th quarter. His brother stepped it up more late in the 4th when the chips were down. And Rubio ... wow, can that kid play some lockdown defense. I was impressed as hell. He's a lighting bolt with how fast he can move. :clapping:

I only watched the a quarter and a half, but he really wasn't a factor late in the game either. It was guys like Navarro, Marc Gasol, Rubio and Fernandez who seemed to step it up for Spain. (I didn't watch OT so I can't comment there) Jose's defense was atrocious. My god his lateral movement is slow as molasses. It's actually painful to watch. :(

Homer takes over Spain

By Amber Dowling


2008-08-11

‘Simpsons’ character found on Spanish Euro
We’re not sure whether this is a joke, a continuous quest by Matt Groening to take over the world or one of those serendipitous moments, but Homer Simpson has been found on the face of a Euro in Spain.

Now for those Simpsons fans who are about to pull on their boots and run to their local money exchange for their own Euro, simmer down for a second.

The coin is one-of-a-kind, and randomly showed up in Aviles, Spain, in a sweetshop. Mr. Doh himself was on it instead of the country’s king, Juan Carlos.

The shop owner, Jose Martinez, was counting change when he came across the beer-guzzling TV dad on the coin, and told Reuters he’s already been offered 20 Euros for it.

“The coin must have been done by a professional, the work is impressive,” he said.

King Juan Carlos has been the reigning king of Spain for more than 30 years. The 70-year-old replaced dictator General Franco on the back of the coins when the monarchy was restored in 1975.

Conversely, Homer Simpson has been the reigning TV dad on Fox for 20 years, and his face has been on dolls, hats, boxer shorts, bobbleheads, alarm clocks, slippers and video games. In addition to holding down his job as safety inspector at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, he has also worked as an astronaut, a monorail conductor, a snowplow driver, a carnie and a clown impersonator.

Homer Simpson is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, who will be paid $400,000 U.S. per episode for Season 20.

Pau got consecutive plays at the 4th that were very important (2points+block to Yao+2points), so he did something :)
