USA-Brazil Open Thread

block

Hi, everyone! How was your weekend? What'd you get up to?... Yeah? That sounds fun. What else?... Oh, wow - that's great. Hey, shut up for a second.

Team USA this morning plays part three of a back-to-back-to-back. After battering Slovenia and Croatia, they tangle with Brazil at 9:30 a.m. California time. The game's on ESPN2.

I was a lot more enthusiastic about the FIBA worlds before I came to realize that Turkey's not in the same time zone as Los Angeles. Not even close, it turns out. Isn't that why we fought World War I? Because the Ottoman Empire refused to join the Pacific time zone? Clearly, whoever forgot to include that provision in the Treaty of Sèvres is history's greatest monster.
