      Brazil vs Team GB at the moment. Not looking good for Brazil in the 1st quarter, but still a long way to go. Vamo Brasil!

      I was at the GB vs Brazil game it was great! But the Brazilians near me got kicked out because they were drunk and wouldn't stop yelling at the judges.

      Brazil just beat Spain by 88-82. We're probably facing Argentina in the QF and if we can beat them (which will be extremely difficult, the Argies have a great team), we might face the USA in the semis.

      In terms of which team to face in the next phase it was better to lose to Spain, and there are people saying Spain let Brazil win, but I don't care, I'm proud of this team, showing great sportsmanship and respect to the games.

      Brazil has great tradition in Basketball but for too long we have been a total joke, it is really inspiring to see that we have a team to be respected once again. I take my hat off to our coach Magnano, what a legend.

      I'm basically talking to myself in this thread but if there is anyone out there that likes basketball, I would recommend you to watch Brazil vs Argentina... great game, huge rivalry... Argentina are by far the favorites but this Brazilian team is much better than our recent ones, we could surprise them. 1st quarter just finished, Brazil 26-23 Argentina. So nervous now!

      3rd quarter is a disaster for Brazil :( Argentina opened a good advantage, I'm afraid this one is almost out of our reach now... it's a big shame, not really surprising as Argentina have what is called their "golden generation", and our team has big flaws, but it was nice to see Brazil reawakening in a sport that used to be the 2nd most popular after football but suffered decades of stagnation and mediocrity... these guys did us proud anyway. I just wish they could get back with a medal :(

      Actually Brazil improved a lot in the 4th quarter, got to just 3 points behind them, but a lot of mistakes cost us the game... really sad about that, I would have loved to see those guys going through. Anyway, it was great to have a Brazilian Basketball team to cheer for again, after all those years in which we barely had something we could call a team. Thanks a lot Rubén Magnano (coach).

      Oh, and I hope Argentina gets violently raped from behind by the Americans in the semifinal.
