The Chinese Love Them Some Kobe

Saturday, August 09, 2008

With all of the random channels NBC has in play, it's tough to even figure when things happened or even if they're live at the time. I think the general rule I'm going to use is that if I haven't seen the clip, I'm posting it.

Your Olympic Video Du Jour for Saturday (last night in China) is Kobe making his way into the Beijing Olympic Basketball Stadium for the Women's game against the Czech Republic. It's already been documented that the USA Men's Team are being treated like rock stars, but this entrance is crazy....



Now that was pretty awesome, and a tad scary that there wasn't more security, but still awesome. I have yet to really get into the spirit of these Games (even though the Opening Ceremony was rather impressive), but come tomorrow morning when USA takes on Yao Ming and China, I think I'll be on board. That game is going to be intense.

It kind of sucks when people touch and do things to you that you dont want. Right Kobe?

NFLN went to the Bills announcers for the second half. No more experiencing the joy of Mike Patrick.
