Google expects you to use the "Directed Identity" feature to sign in 
with your Google account. Enter into the box the following string:

...and you should end up logged in as a URL at google.com with a 
humongous string of hexadecimal gibberish on the end of it. That URL is 
your Google OpenID URL.

This will only work if bitbucket.org supports OpenID 2.0.
