Olympic team is off to a bizarre beginning. After the weird events in the
Aussie game, and after being pushed by the Select Team for a half (and come to
think of it they were pushed in the first halves of both games, not an
auspicious beginning), they were more or less held prisoners in Melbourne by a
protest which ringed their hotel. Some guy in a Mohawk was brought forward to approve the bus leaving. It was an economic protest, not an NBA
protest, but with any luck, someone will think of protesting the NBA.
