Well, the US beach volleyball teams have lost (women still play for Bronze), but the men's and women's indoor teams are into the semis.

Pretty good turnaround for the men who lost their first two games of pool play but have been playing really well since then. 3-0 over Poland today, although all three games were close.

The Serbian's win the second set. That front line is shutting down anything the USA throws at them. Serbia is up in the third set 9-1.

Well, if the US could actually serve the ball in bounds, they'd probably be ok.

Time to start lobbing it underhand over the net company picnic style, and worry about winning the return.

Serbia is plainly showing the pressure. You can see it in their faces. US up 15-9 in the 4th set.

. . . and the US serves into the net . . .

USA was up 11-7 in the 5th set and their serving & errors forces Serbia to come back and win 15-13. Terrible 5th set by USA.

Wow. What a complete choke. The US had the third set in the bag and down the last few points just made some incredible blunders.

You don't often seen blowouts like this at this level.

US-Italy men's semifinal. They split the first two sets (Italy won the first 30-28 ) but the US is completely dominating now and leads the third set 20-6. (It was 18-4 a couple minutes ago).

Final score of set three is US 25 Italy 9.

Ties for the worst beat down in men's Olympic volleyball history.

Set four is a barn burner. US leads 19-18. No one has been able to take charge. Close game.

We're headed to set five tiebreaker.

US got some breathing room opening up a 22-19 lead, but Italy reeled off six straight points, including two aces, to win set four 25-22.

What a total fiasco. Just like the women. The US crushed Italy in set 3, then led 22-19 to win the match in set 4. Then completely collapsed, gave up six straight to lose set 4, and then played like crap and got smoked in the tiebreaker.

Another total choke job.

Well maybe the US women's water polo team can get even and beat Italy for the gold medal in the match starting right now.
