Day 250: We were so close… another four point loss due to the worst referee/umpires I have ever seen. We managed to have 20+ fouls paid against us during my cousin Brandon’s debut game with The Falcons. To put this is perspective the other team only managed to draw 5 fouls for both half’s combined.
It was obvious the referee’s knew the other side, and I am not pointing the finger of anyone in this photo as it from a game last season I have used as there was none taken on Monday. I won’t comment on the decisions that did not go our way but I will tell you all of a funny story at the very end of the game.
I set a screen on some bloke at the end of our game who proceeded to duck his head into me when making contact, thus sending himself sideways past my shoulders and into the court head first. Upon finally getting up after engaging in time-wasting during the last few seconds of the game and shaking hands with me stating “don’t worry about it that is the nature of the sport”.
The next day a team mate of mine overhears the same bloke the next day at his work talking about how I “decked him and there was a massive punch on” and proceeds furthermore to boast about the aftermath of this “fight” to some girl he is with, about how I was apparently put in hospital. I wouldn’t have thought so - but possibly the funniest load of shit I have ever heard in my life!
Well we are discussing basketball, I will attach the link to my team’s Facebook page if anyone would like to follow our progress and very bad attempt at humour relating to how badly we suck haha:
