Excuses Excuses

I hate people who make excuses.  Now we’re hearing them from a couple of guys who felt the need to make them after the US won gold in Beijing.

First up:  Larry Brown explaining why HIS team didn’t win gold.

“The thing is they got guys that are willing to make a three-year commitment, which I think is tremendous,” Brown said of this current Team USA. “We had guys that committed (for 2004) and then all of a sudden 9/11 happened, and then there were injuries.”

Here’s a thought.  Maybe everyone involved gave a half-assed effort.  That seems much more likely

Next:  Jose Calderon explaining why Spain would have won… if only….

“This is not the time to speak of officiating, but I think with the FIBA rules we would have won. That is why we are a little annoyed, because we were right there at the finish line and we have just missed out.”

Why Jose… did you guys get a different set of rules before the tournament?  The rules seem to suit you fine on your way to the gold medal game.  Ya got beat.  Live with it.  Don’t you have any other races or an ethnicity to openly mock?

Idiots… the both of them.
