Thanks, Cblue!  I admit I'm a ballaholic!  Uh oh, cross blogging?  Is there a 12 step program for sports addicts? lol  "Admitted we were powerless over ballin' and our lives had become unmanageable?"  Yeah, that works!  I watched the games from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m.  The Croatia/Australia game wasn't on TV so I got to sleep and get up for USA/China.  Can't keep that up for 5 more days of pool play, I'm sure!
