Old School Pic of the Week 7.31

At long last, the Olympics are upon us. So, of course, I'm going to pull some picture from the '92 Dream Team and debate if this year's 20th anniversary edition could knock off the original because nobody has thought to address that point of contention, right?


The Olympics are not about the medal count, the pageantry, and certainly not about the sportsmanship.


The Olympics are a celebration of those indistinct athletes thrust onto to grandest stage with no business challenging the world's best. Forget LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant. Let's talk Antanas Kavaliauskas, Guilherme Giovannoni, and Fabien Causeur.

But this is the Old School Pic of the Week, and if there is a better way to commemorate these fine gentlemen than to dig into the archives and find a picture of an older obscure foreigner (namely: Zarko Paspalj) than I am not aware of it.

Happy Olympics from Zarko and Court of Appeals
