Default You Guys Watching Other Countries?

I have 2 q's for all of you watching the World Championships;

1. How do you you guys watch Team USA play? Do you stay up late, wake up early or record it? Because here in Vegas I have to stay up till 3:30 am to catch it on ESPN2.

2. For those that have NBATV, or even for those who don't; are you guys watching or interested in watching other games besides Team USA? For those. Do/would you watch to see NBA foreigners play for their respective countries? Or like me, do/would watch other games to see what kind of style, offenive sets and plays they run, and what kind of defenses they use. I got a kick out of watching Puerto Rico's drive and dish game, China and thier use/misuse of zone d. Italy and Senagal was a nail-biter.

I was watching the Senegal vs. Italy game today and Senegal was handling their business against Italy. Senegal is the only team I've watched so far that impressed me. Luckly Italy got their sh*t together to advance to the next round. Definitely going to get up early for the USA vs. Italy game tomorrow morning. USA by 15 points.

Here in the Philippines, we have a channel called solar sports that shows 2 world championship games daily...The best part is that they show the games in the afternoon and in the evening...

I can't wait to see Spain play. I like watching Jose Calderon and Pau Gasol, and I want to see how Garbajosa will fair against the USA team.
