A Reason to Watch USA Olympic Baseball

I'm not the biggest Olympic fan in the world. I really only like watching certain team sports like soccer and during the Winter Olympics, hockey. I'm not really one to get into the badminton, swimming and all the other random sports that the Summer Olympics bring. But for obvious reasons, I would love to watch U.S. Olympic baseball since two of the A's most prized possesions will be on that stage. Brett Anderson and Trevor Cahill are both participating.

Any way, if you want to keep up with the USA baseball ventures in the Olympics, you can do so here. Course I'm not really sure how NBC is going to show the games. They have like 18 networks showing games, so it's going to be up to us to figure out where to see the games. So while the summer olympics usually bore me to death as I'm not really a basketball fan and most of the best soccer players in the world don't participate as it coincides with the professional leagues' seasons, we're actually going to have something to pay attention to during this deluge of sports. And quite frankly, Cuba versus the U.S.A. in baseball is about as close as we're going to get to U.S.A. against the Soviet hockey team from 1980.

Maybe I'll get into the Olympics as it goes on, but I doubt it right now. How excited are you about the Olympics? I've attached the obligatory poll.
