Handball action!

My girlfriends from Norway get by Korea on a razor-thin decision at the end of a lightning-fast break. BloggingRef's all over that call. Incredibly, he seems to like handball as much as I do.

I'm rooting for Hungary and the adorable Monika Kovacsicz (who's got some game at right wing) to take the women's bronze.

For the men...well, it's a no-brainer. I still like swooping Mirza Dzomba, so I'm rooting for Croatia to beat France.

But Iceland is in the other semifinal against Spain. Dude...Iceland! Three medals in HISTORY, and none of them gold. How can anyone root against Iceland, which, as this article points out, has a population less than Toledo, Ohio?

Man, I love the Olympics.
