Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Holy one-point lead at the end of the first, Batman!

And yet it still ended up being a 51-point margin of victory.

Sure, you love the offense. But wowza with the serious defense from a bunch of 15 and 16-year-olds.
"We weren't all mentally there in the first half," Vaioletama said. "We did better in the second quarter, and we finally got all the way there in the third quarter. That's when we really started to put the game away. At halftime we talked about recommitting to defense and coming together as a team, and we did that in the second half."
Next up, the gold medal game against 4-0 Canada, who defeated Argentina.

As Mr. T would say, "Pity the fools."
