Japan has pretty much given us a run for our money in the summer olympics:

#1. Cuba
3 gold, 1 silver medals (4 total)

#2. USA
1 gold, 1 bronze ( 2 total )

#3. Japan
1 silver, 2 bronze ( 3 total )

MLB players don't play in Baseball Olympic Events.

EDIT:

After some more google-searching, it appears that Baseball and Softball were removed from the Olympics. Possibly comming back, but Selig doesn't want MLB players halting mid-season for the Olympic games. We would pretty much destroy any team that played us. Dream Team, anybody?

My wife and I were in Paris. We are stopping for drink and crepe . She walks up and orders a coke and lemon crepe . Well , this was a big no no. The guy in the stand gives her a lecture on saying bonjour first !!!

It totally ruined his day .

I did all the ordering from that point on..
