Man, nothing can top the Perlorian Cats. But I still have some 90s greatness to share anyway.
I have been an Olympic fan for a long time. The first one I remember is the 1992 Barcelona games, but my family remembers that I watched the 1988 Seoul games as well. But the first one I was really a superfan of? That's 1996. It was the second one where the basketball games had truly the best players in the world. I had discovered the NBA earlier in 1996 so naturally I was a huge supporter of the 1996 Olympic basketball team.
Sad thing is, I have no memories of the 1996 basketball tournament. I know I watched it. I've watched it in every Olympics. I just don't remember it. I don't remember most of the Olympic basketball, and I wonder if that is because I watch so much basketball that it all kinds of blurs together, where the other sports I only see with the Olympics, so it stands out more? I don't know.
But I have chosen a card set related to the 1996 US Olympic basketball team.
