Olympics I  
Germany - Angola 95:66

Dirk: 23 points, 6 rebounds.

First win, we'll see...
Next game will be on Tuesday against Greece. Cross your fingers, this will be much more difficult than today.

Nice icon! ;)

Good game. Better than expected.
I guess that was the easy part. But since they have nothing to lose, hopefully they'll be able to win another game. No matter against what team. :)

Thanks for the inspiration! :)
I credited you in my userpics!
Great Icon yourself. Reno is wonderful :)

Same impression here, they did it very well, even without Dirk. Last quater was a little confused but hey... It was a great beginning! :)
I hope they will win against China, I see the best chances here. The US boys freaked me out against China. Okay, they made step mistake (Schrittfehler, no idea, if step mistake is the right translation) over step mistake, but Christ, LeBron was awesome!

That wasn't really necessary. But thanks! :) Jean Reno also approves of your icon. :)

Yes, I'd also say that China would be our best chance for another win. I think it's the last game so it would probably be sort of a final for reaching the QF. Let's see what happens tomorrow against Greece.
I have to say that for almost the whole first half I was quite unimpressed by the US. Of course it wasn't very likely that the Chinese would continue to score 3pts like at the beginning but I thought the US defense lacked seriousness bordering on arrogance. But it was only their first game and I'm sure they will improve that during the tournament. But it won't be as easy for them if they play like that against for example Spain.

Awww, thank you :)

Same here, China is the best chance. But we'll see. Olympics are special, Dirk is in a excellent shape and Kaman fits better and better in the team. Maybe a little (or big) wonder against Greece is possible.

Yes, right... But if the play that "bad" (Bryant and LeBron were great, but yes, theres a lot of space for improvement) and still beat China with 30 points, it scares me...
