    The US-Serbia match today was awesome. So much fun to watch. Those guys really know how to handle a ball. As for rooting for a team, I don't have a preference. May the best men win!

    MSU - LOL! after today's match, im hoping the USA medals, they really worked hard for it.

    Bunjamon - the match today was AMAZING. i was hootin and hollerin at the TV. I thought David Lee was one of their better hitters (and he's cute too!)

    TallGWM - Lloy Ball is 6-4? that's awesome. actually, i thought he was taller for some reason....regardless, it rocks having a tall setter. i wish i were another foot taller, LOL

    Lloy Ball is 6'8"! That's an inch taller than me! To think that I'd be average height, if not considered *short* on that team. Incredible.

    Sadly I am missing the volleyball due to work commitments. And they do not seem to show it at night on the highlights. I did get to see synchronized swimming last night! icon_evil.gif

    so the women team has failed to upset the Brasilians...

    can't wait for an exciting volleyball.

    I think volleyball is a sport that showcase the speed, the strength, and the team spirit of a team.

    who doesnt like a sport where you get a group hug everytime you get a point icon_lol.gif

    yeah, i just saw the newswire about it. i wanna watch the game, i wonder if the USA's passing game was off. the womens team's defense hasn't been up to par early in the olympics.

    I am looking forward to the men's match! go David Lee! lol

    Yes I watched the entire match.... The US women were really off in every way the first set but they did everything right and won the second, but Brazil came on strong after that and the US made many what appeared to be dumb mistakes... probably nerves.

    Will watch the Men's match on Sunday.

    Go LOY BALL and company!
