Default Olympic Final: USA vs. Spain

Any predictions on how much of a point spread the US will win by?

*Sorry Belsius and rapsfan*

My head says 95 - 80 US wins. My heart says 93 - 88 Spain wins.

I'm calling for a close game.
It's ONE game - really, anything can happen.

The chances of the unlikely happening are about 10%, and it's easy to see why some people have already printed up the Olympic champion tee shirts, but i refuse to be one of those people that just goes with the mass consensus. I'd understand if it was a series.... but it's one game.

And anyways, we're talking about Spain. not Angola. or Canada.

It's the Olympics. crazy shit happens there sometimes.

USA by 20+, keeping my 20+ beating of every team intact.

They have been classy the whole tourny, props to them and big laughs at all the haters/doubters.

Perhaps Spain can flop there way to keeping close for a little while, but it wont last, Gasol will be unclutch in the big moments as usual and USA has way too much fire power.

The PG situation will also not play good because of USA's great ball pressure

Or if all the european teams can plz flop a little more, i mean every 3 plays or so is waiting too long to unleash that secret weapon.

Also, keep crying to the refs, one major thing the Americans stopped doing, but im seeing Spain do it like crazy, is complain to the refs, whine, make faces etc etc. I wanna see their faces when they look up in the 4th and are down by 20.

I checked CBC ... the bronze medal game starts at 11:50 p.m. and the gold medal game starts at 2:30 a.m. I think I'll nap then wake up at 2:30.

I just got my new 37 incher Sharp hd tv so I'm definately staying up for the game. After workin 39 hrs in 3 days I hope I can stay awake til 4.

I guess the bronze game isnt on NBC? I dont want to listen to Triano correcting Romanuk all game.

ROMANUK: "YASKAVICIOUS IS ONE OF THE FEW PLAYERS THAT HASNT MADE THE JUMP TO THE NBA"

Triano: ...

"Actually he played for Indiana for a couple years"

Romanuk: ...

"HE SHOOTS HE SCORES"
