Breaking News from Beijing 2008 Olympics!

In men's basketball, the "redeem" team beat Greece, avenging at loss at Worlds in 2006, 92-69.

Way to go! U.S. tennis player James Blake upsets Roger Federer in Beijing, the number one will not stay number one for much longer (Rafael Nadal of Spain most likely becoming the new number one).

I stayed up til almost 2 a.m. watching the men's all around in gymnastics; I had planned to post after it was over but I could only keep my eyes open long enough to see that China continued their domination of gymnastics at this games. Many of the top gymnasts had costly errors, and with Paul and Morgan Hamm out of picture, Yang Wei capitalized big time.

Men's Individual All Around Finals
1. Yang Wei China 94.575
2. Kohei Uchimura Japan 91.975
3. Benoit Caranobe France 91.925
