Journal Sentinel's Gary D'Amato Discusses Men's Basketball Team
By Katie DeLong
BEIJING – Journal Sentinel columnist Gary D’Amato is in Beijing for the Olympics. D’Amato saw the U.S. men’s hoops team crush Germany by almost 50 points! He says the U.S. team is mobbed by Chinese fans wherever they go. “These guys are doing everything to ingratiate themselves, not only to the host nation, but to other athletes. They are spending time at venues. Michael Phelps visited them in the locker room before a game. They’ve gone to see Phelps swim. They’ve spent time in the village in the cafeteria. Taking photos with all the other athletes,” D’Amato said. Click on the video link to see D’Amato reporting from Beijing.
