Since most of the gay blogs and cable news channels are offering wall-to-wall coverage on you-know-who, let's begin a virtual tour of Beijing's Olympic Village and give some shine to the other deserving athletes.
First up, the Angolan basketball team. Angola lost yesterday to the United States 97-76. However, the southern Africa nation's basketball team is strong, it has drawn Group B along with the United States, Spain, Greece, Germany and host China. One of the top players is Armando Costa, number 5 above, a guard who is considered quite the sex symbol in his native land.
Costa tells Newsday the 21 point loss was respectable because playing against the Units States is "difficult because they are bigger, they are stronger and they force us to do a lot of turnovers," Armando Costa said. "But I think we did OK. We scored 76 points, which is OK for us, and they didn't score 100 points. They were expecting to beat us, like 60 points or more."
Angola will meet Germany on Sunday afternoon
