They must have spent more time deciding on the stunt they pulled than getting ready.  Kneeled before the game.   But seriously, age has to be a factor for this team to some extent, have they added new talent or just coasting with the old?

I don't follow soccer.

I don't think age is a factor really, there are some older players on the squad but they were playing well at the club level. With that said, Vlatko needs to figure out the lineup, it's like he didn't know which combinations he wanted to use. We needed a little less panic against Sweden, who has been a tough matchup for us in the past. I expect them to bounce back against NZ.

I had no idea that 3 on 3 women’s basketball is now an olympic event.
Just caught the end of USA v. France. Pretty interesting- 12 second clock.

In what channel do they have the 3x3... I tried to find them this morning, but think I missed them... or are they streaming only?

Judo, wrestling, some track and field events (100m, high jump, pole vault and throwing events) and swimming events.

Basketball is the only team sport I'll follow probably. Waiting for E-Sports to be there ;D

YASSSS

E-sports would be sick. I so badly want Street Fighter to be there. Easiest to understand e-sport. Life-bar at the top. Person A vs person B. Kicks/punches hurt. Ez.

As for right now; Been watching Men's 3on3 basketball. And women's as well. Pretty fun!

It's really kinda fun to watch.

3on3 is my personal favourite as well - to play. More space on the court, but still get to do a bunch of fakes and no-look passes.

Men’s Street Skateboard has been pretty good.

All of the skating and surfing has been fun to watch. Still feels weird that they're now 'Olympic sports', given that the IOC is such a force for 'meh', but it's obviously cool for the participants.
Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time.

But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.
