Football in the Olympics, not so seriously

It looks more and more like Peyton Manning wants to be like to Chris Bosh and be a star on YouTube (and at the Olympics, since Team USA made short work of Spain).

The irony: Raptors fans would prefer Bosh was more like Manning -- you know, lose the stigma that he can't win the big game.

"You may say that many countries don't play football, but that makes it more easier, then."


Father Archie Manning also gets in on the act, after the jump.

Ya, ya, ya, it's the typical ugly Americans who don't get the Olympic message of broadening your horizons and understanding other people's cultures and just thinks it's all about the medals. Certainly, no one in Canada has been obsessing over medals for the last week.

(And look at that -- we got three of them now. All the whining and self-flagellation must have had a positive effect on Carolyn Huynh, Tonya Verbeek and the rowing pair, Dave Calder and Scott Frandsen.)
