Manu the rat flopped his way out of the game and the USA rolled those dirty Argentinians by 20. One more pounding of Spain and Team Domination will complete its goal of Olympic gold.
I tried to follow the Yahoo Live Sports blog for the USA/Argentina game but the commentary from the 3 bloggers was absolutely brutal. A tip for those running it, save the canned one liners and actually focus more on the game that is transpiring live.
However, I was impressed with the online NBC description of the action.

You can watch online live Team Domination's semifinal game against Argentina. It is time to extract some serious revenge from 2004 medal round loss in Athens and that flopping Rat Manu needs exterminated for good.
There are no announcers and you can hear the teams talking mad smak at the free throw line. Bron and Kobe have their game faces on!!

UPDATE DOWN BELOW: Could the "Nuh Linga" or the "Gully Creepa" be the next dance craze in America, like the 2007 "Soulja Boy?"
Forget Michael Phelps for a quick second because the 100,200 meters gold medalist Usain Bolt is just downright nasty!
The Jamaican coasted to victory in the 100 and still ran a 9.69!! Since all of the Caribbean countries are pridefully celebrating his world record accomplishments, I have given Bolt this nickname:
The Caribbean Cheetah
Here is the video of the Caribbean Cheetah's200 beat down run in Beijing today.
Hearlded Sprinter Michael Johnson proclaimed: Usain Bolt's 200m victory in a new world record time of 19.30 seconds was simply incredible. This guy is Superman II.
I am fresh out of superlatives to describe the victory margin images below over the best sprinters on the planet.
HT: Awful Announcing
UPDATE: The joyful Bolt has been breaking out a popular Jamaican homegrown dance called the "Nuh Linga" on the track for his races.
The dance moves were created by a choreographer named Overmars and the music group Elephant Man created a song "Nuh Linga" based upon them.
Overmars is exuberant about the worldwide notoriety Bolt has brought to Jamaican dancehall culture:
"It's like somebody out there is doing my ting (dance)... di fastest man in di world is doing my dance. It's so great mi caan forget that moment," Overmars said. Adding, "I think di dance buss again. Like I was in di streets last night and when Fire Links a go play di song dem intro it by talking bout Bolt."
Yes, those quotes are real and I love Jamaica, man. Here is Elephant Man's "Nuh Linga" music video.
This song and dance is growing on me.
The boogieing Caribbean Cheetah busted out another Jamaican dance song by Elephant Man called the "Gully Creepa" before and after his 200 gold medal romp.
This dance was birthed by an artist named "Ice," who was so flattered and moved by Bolt's Beijing display that he plans to create a new dance just for Bolt.
"Mi have a dance weh mi ago call di 'Usain Bolt', a one a di maddest ting...Weh dem ago do when Mr. Bolt a do it side a mi?," Ice said. "A di dance name Gully Net mi ago change and call Usian Bolt eno.Ice was not finished throwing lyrical praise to the Caribbean Cheetah and explaining the Gully Creep:
It look like di creepa a way but it have a likkle more fancy neatness to it. Yu bend down an yu hand dem a move like di creepa, yu shoulder dem a rotate, foot dem a move like di creepa wid yu leg dem a move same speed. Mi drop in all a likkle neck movement inna it to," Ice said as he gave a brief description of his new dance called the 'Usain Bolt'.
"A gully creepa a di biggest ting, people nuh sweep a farin, a vacuum dem vacuum... yuh nuh see Ice gone gold to... mi love goes out to Mr Bolt, di man a creep pon live TV," Ice said.
These quotes are without a doubt some of the best that I have ever copied and pasted in my blogger dork career. Simply Awesome and the whole article is worth a read.
To recap Bolt's Olympic dances:
Record 100m Gold- "Nuh Linga" is performed by Elephant Man and the dance was created by Overmars.
Record 200m Gold- "Gully Creepa" is performed by Elephant Man and the dance was created by Ice.
Bolt gets his own dance
Ice's dance is called the "Nuh Linga."

I need my boy Big Al to translate or actually I have no interest in their words at all.
HT: My Chill Pill
Big Al's translation:
Since I can't watch this at work, I just listened to the first part. Someone asked a question if people hook up at the Olympics. She gave an answer that people are focused etc on the sport, but things go down.
Mentioned that it's a great ratio for guys. Five girls to one guy. Said that the guys have their pick of any type of woman: Japanese, Egyptian, blondes, tans etc. Said that there are tons of twins. Then they started talking about each others' stomachs and I had to stop watching since I'm at work.

I loaded up my tivo then sat back wearing my USA colored shirt (made in China), pounded several dark German beers, and smoked some Spanish hashish to watch Team USA absolutely crush Spain and Germany in Olympic basketball.
I refuse to use the cheesy NBC driven "Redeem Team" slogan and I am rolling with what it should be for the sport we taught the world how to play: Team Domination.
3 games left for our American ballers to dominate and shut up the haters for good. Clippers and German center Chris Kaman is on board with my confident prognosis:
“Nobody is going to beat them. No way, it’s just not going to happen."
I still do not trust these inconsistent international refs with the 5 foul rule and all of the futball influenced flopping but Flash, Bron, DHoward, CP3, Little Flying Warrior and company are simply possessed enough to overcome anything.
The bracket of 8 medal round is set up and Team Domination opens up with the Aussies at 8am EST on Wednesday.
I refuse to drink Fosters but I will make a bunch of lame "mate" jokes during the Kangaroo ass raping.
Team Domination Crushes the Germans

The stupidity of the inquiry on the above picture really needs no elaboration. This idiot American waiting for Russia to attack Georgia must not be fans of the Atlanta Hawks fans and their pimp center Zaza from the "Republic of Georgia, Baby."
My only question is did the Russkies kill big foot?
HT: Banned in Hollywood
Zaza talks about the conflict on CNN
