Hmm, wonder if I'll stay up for that one. I went to bed as the sun was coming up after the game against Turkey. Funny feeling.

I think the US will have another slow start but pick it up after the half for another blowout win :jam2:

I concur, Turkey will not be in the Olympics while Lithuania will be.

Not to mention Lithuania is just a much better team overall but especially size wise.

GO TEAM USA :patriot:

They are a great team that has underachived the last few years. USA should be carefull but it should be a solid double digit win.

Team USA is killing my sleep. :bang:

I can't help but stay up to watch the games.



Does anyone know if most of the actual Olympic game will be at this time too?

I was watching ESPN and just flipping through the guide only to find the Team USA game today. I really hope those Olympic games come at a decent hour.
