    I don't know... there's just something uninteresting about this team and tournament. The Europeans love this tournament but are ho-hum about the Olympics, and we're the opposite.

    You're probably right but I must be part European, I'm ho-hum about both of them. I used to really care about the Olympics but it's been a few decades since they really mattered to me.

    Well, take Team USA, as an American, what is the most important tournament that Team USA plays in? I'd say a majority of Americans would say the Olympics, whether they follow the team or not.

    US vs Serbia!

    US will use their long-range shooters to bomb Serbia into submission.
