I never realized Greece were so good at basketball, plus where i live we had no coverage at all, but credit where credits due beating the U.S at their national sport can't be bad,

We suck in football. But in Basketball we rule!!!!




Offices and services came to a standstill in Athens as Greeks watched the game and then left their workplace to celebrate.

Workers at one downtown office threw hundreds of sheets of paper out of windows onto a celebrating crowd.

Others waved national blue-and-white flags and sounded car horns as they celebrated the country's place in the final.

Traffic information screens had flashed the final score, prompting some motorists to abandon their cars to join the crowds.

Do these kind of things also happen to other countries?

The problem with US teams is that they are always put together at the last moment. The individual players are great but they aren't used to playing together all the time like other national teams around the world. This used to be good enough but now that other nations are becoming better and better at the sport, the teamwork aspect can't be overcome by any level of individual greatness.

Of course we are not :) It's just that in football we usually didn't go so well in international championships until we won the Euro. The greek football teams (as well as the national one) are very good, but truth is that people here always took basketball more seriously, due to our early Euro victory back in 1987; this was something that made many people get interested in basketball, so there was a great development there. I'm sure that we can do more in football too, if we try a bit more :)

Good luck to us for Sunday, and good luck to Spain too! :)
