Mister Pterodactyl

It's the last day of the Olympics, so, a few thoughts.

First, basketball. Sigh. I think its clear that using NBA players isn't working any more. Maybe we should go back to having a year-round international team. [Did we ever do that?] Perhaps college players who don't get into the pros would like to spend a couple years that way. There won't be much money in it - lots of Americans go to play abroad and earn pretty good bank - but at least we won't have to witness our supposedly world's-best flopping around on the court. Time to admit that other countries have caught up.

I saw Iraq's soccer team lose to Paraguay in the bronze medal game. What really struck me was CNBC's reporter interviewing players afterward; he could speak Arabic. Cool.

And why do women beach volleyballers wear bikinis? Not that I'm complaining.
