Beating the U.S. is a Big Deal

A few hours before China takes a crack at Team U.S.A., let me show you some video of a Serbian youth team that just beat a youth American team.

It's some awesome video of the under-19 team. Tim Brown of Oregonlive narrates by e-mail:

Be sure to watch the end of the video where Nikola Markovic of FMP Serbia freaks out after the win and picks up his coach and nearly slams him into a stack of chairs. Then the kid body slams the floor and starts slapping his hands on the ground. It just goes to show how important beating U.S. players is to international youth. Great little sequence.
