Coach McCain

Senator John McCain gave a pep talk to the United States Basketball team on Monday. And if there was ever a group of athletes that needed motivation its these guys. Hopefully the Senator lit a fire.

"Before heading to the arena, the players were first treated to a speech at their hotel from Sen. John McCain, giving the team an emotional boost before they took the floor.
"It was amazing. It was tremendous what Sen. McCain did," Krzyzewski said. "He talked about his service to our country, which I don't think we'll be able to replicate. He's supporting us, and he knew every guy's name. And our guys really appreciated that."

I wonder how many of Team USA, who are most definately not to be confused with Team America-World Police, have ever heard of John McCain. I'll bet half don't know who the Democrat nominee for President was in 2004 (and the coaches don't count).

The way those guys played in '04, we'd rather they didn't pay attention to politics and focused more on their dribbling, passing and outside shooting.

You have to believe that some of them know McCain though. He's was in Wedding Crashers for crying out loud.
