Talk American sports here. Please ladies and gentleman ignore this annoying dull alcoholic who doesn't have any respect for American sports.
All so called American sports were invented over here Baseball (rounders), American Football (Rugby for cissies). All you've really got is Basketball and that was invented by a canadian.
Was it the 1984 Olympics in LA or the 1996 in Atlanta where Japan beat USA in the baseball tournament?
In 1984 (Los Angeles), Japan beat the US in the then baseball demonstration games.
In 1992 (Barcelona) as a medal sport, Japan beat the US in the seventh round with a score of 7-1. Final rankings for that Olympics were 1) Cuba, 2) Chinese Taipei, 3) Japan, 4) United States.
In 1996 (Atlanta), Japan defeated the US in the semi-final round. Final rankings for that Olympics were: 1) Cuba, 2) United States, 3) Japan, 4) Nicaragua.
In 2000 (Sydney), the US defeated Japan in the preliminary rounds. The final ranking for that Olympics were: 1) United States, 2) Cuba, 3) Korea, 4) Japan.
In 2004 (Athens), the US was knocked out in the qualifying round and never played Japan.
My husband is of the opinion that the way to not get knocked out of the qualifying rounds in 2008 is to not include any of the New York Yankees on the team. He's still upset about yesterday.
