The USA is the best usual.

A while back I reported on the USA national finals for World Cyber Games. Well over the weekend Team USA and teams from 74 other nations competed in Seattle for the World Cyber Games Grand Finals. USA was under serious pressure to bring home the championship this year after winning only one medal last year. Well there was a lot of pre-game hype with Korea announcing their best lineup ever in the Starcraft and Warcraft III events, and by adding Gears of War and Command and Conquer 3 to the event lineup.

Well right now the only song in my head is Proud To Be An American since Team USA stole the show this year by wining three gold medals, two silver, and one bronze. USA took gold in Dead or Alive 4, Tony Hawk Project 8, and Gears of War. Additionally they took second in Age of Emires 3 and Chomp3r the defending Project Gotham 3 champion lost the finals in an upset. Additionally Team USA took a bronze in DOA4. The United States has a history of being behind Europe and Asia in the competitive gaming world, but silenced all critics this year.
