Scoff if you want, but if you've ever watching late-night badminton on ESPN 28 (The Deuce-Ocho), you know these games can get hard-core and fast-paced. Yes, no American individual or team has ever medaled in this sport, but our biggest hope is Tony Gunawan, who won doubles gold in 2000 for Indonesia but who is now a U.S. citizen). We have our "Gun-it Gunawan" signs already made. (Men's doubles final: 3 p.m. Aug. 5; NBC Sports Network).
