Olympic Update: Redeem Team Cruises to Semis

If this U.S. Basketball team doesn't win the Gold, whoever beats them will have pulled off an upset worthy of the U.S. Hockey Team in the 1980 Winter Games. The Redeem Team is destined for the medal, and proved it again today with a 116-85 victory over Australia.

Kobe Bryant lead the way for the U.S. with 25. LeBron James chipped in with 16, and Carmelo Anthony added another 15. As far as the Milwaukee Bucks are concerned, Michael Redd played just 9 minutes to score 5 points. At the other end of the floor for the Aussies, Andrew Bogut could only contribute with 4 points.

Next up for the U.S.: Argentina, 9:15am CDT, Friday.

In other Olympic news, crushes from my teenage years, Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor won the Gold in beach volleyball for the second consecutive time.

Elsewhere, if you haven't heard already, this Usain Bolt guy is pretty fast.

Although this is a family site, a May-Walsh 3-some would be enjoyable
