    Oh Yeah NWO Advances Free Throws The Key
    Cleary Club 47 N.W.O. 48

    In a game that saw more fouls than a chicken ranch (and I am not talking about the good kind either), it came down to freebies (35 of them in a 36 minute game to be exact) and very simply ñ NWO hit them, and CC did notÖI could end it there, but I have other things to sayÖ Quinten Walsh didnít make a huge dent in the stat sheet, but bodying up Phil and keeping him off the offensive glass was another key to the gameÖcan somebody tell CO that the womenís league plays on Sunday nights?ÖMike D hit a huge three ball down the stretch to I think either tie it or get his team within 1ÖMeyer continues to be a dominating presence in the paint and alters just about everyoneís gameÖeven Danamalís, but his game was already altered by the fan in attendanceÖwhat a huge team CC has, even without Captain America Ken Cleary who I guess suffered a leg injury at the hands of the Axis PowersÖanyone else think that Walsh has a smoking gun on Belicheck?...CC missed the calming presence of Double Krunch Kris KonosianÖCO nailed three freebies with .2 seconds to play to tie the game and send it to OTÖclutch!!!!!!!!!!....not sure how they were even in position to tie the game, og right, forgot, missed freebies by CCÖNWO gets arch rival Matty O and Genzyme in the B2 North FinalÖshould be a great gameÖand please get the time correct on the websiteÖalso always good to check it game dayÖ.

    Mental Ward: G-Unit Cruises Over Uninspired Serenity

    Maybe the most laxadasikal game I have seen SN play ever at the CAC...yes I was way too lazy to even attempt to spell that word correctly...except for Pockets, he always has that unassuming intensity and always plays hard...Matty O' is quietly having an MVP like season...ladies and gentlemen, a Mike Kmiec sighting!...my take on my own charge call: Bigshot has to have room to turn when he receives a pass on a break even if KMiec has been standing there all game...otherwise, it's dangerous for the offensive player...similar to the circle under the hoop to take charges...DMac agreed with me after the game and that's plenty for me...probably not enough for BFab though as it wouldn't matter if Ed Hightower were refifng the game...I did like the way Kmiec argued it though...he said very calmly "you can give me a T, but that was a &^%$ terrible call"...normally a direct comment accompanied by an expletive will warrant the T, but that part about "you can give me a T" really through me for a loop...it was sort of a Jedi mind trick type thing where he was telling me what to do, which I of course didn't like, and my immediate reaction was to not do watever he told me...well played, Kmiec, well played..."You're a contrarian!" "I am not" "See"...my picks for the Final 4 if anyone is interested are Georgetown, UNC, Pitt and Duke with GTown wining it all...I will be editing this part of the write-up after the weekend...2 games left in the regular season...yes, I didn't really mention SN in the write-up, but you know, if you don't have anything nice to say...anyone manage to get their hands on the Kristen Davis sex tape?...Genzyme gets Cleary Club next week and that should be an interesting game if Captain America can get all of his guys there...and the Big State/Serenity is always an entertaining showdown...

    Mike D Hustle Play Saves the Game

    NWO showed up at CAC after their Tuesday night game and was snooping around the Lost and Found looking for their shots.  It seems they lost them and only had their defense left.  Luckily, that went well for them as they escaped with a last second win over More Cowbell last night.  It looked like Danamal was illin' as he spent the majority of the first half riding the pine and NWO couldn't find much of an offense.  More Cowbell was playing much more composed than in the previous week going for good shots and had built themselves a cushy little lead through the first quarter.  Carl the Catalyst was a monster on the boards and also led his team with 8 first half points.  NWO started to look alive towards the end of the first half as Chris O nailed a couple 3 pointers to get them right back in the game.

    Rollin' Romaine was a defensive menace grabbing steals and also setting up his teammates for fast break points namely Joey and Carl.  Joey couldn't miss a mid range jumper if you paid him to and when it wasn't Romaine feeding him it was Charles bounce passing it to him for a nice turnaround J.  NWO didn't have the lead often but with just seconds to go they had pulled ahead 41-40 and a huge huge HUGE rebound by Mike D gave them the last possession they needed to seal the victory.  Unfortunately it was as if More Cowbell's clean D came back to haunt them as there wasn't enough time to get NWO to the line in the bonus.  With that win, NWO stays right at the brink of the top of B2 North.

    CC Downs Big State, Playoffs Looming

    When men bring women to a hoop game, they are so much like subatomic particles...they tend to act differently when they are being watched...Big State really hasn't been the same since their playoff loss to CC last season...Captain America Ken Cleary  must have had a serious talk with his team as they played fantastically in this one, especially on the defensive end...anyone manage to get their hands on the Kristen Davis sex tape?...Kneeland told me Kuether is now an uncle...congrats and that means the captain finally has a nickname: Uncle Kracker...now the entire Big 4 of Big State have one...Double K is a nice point guard for this team - he controls the pace, distributes the ball well, and is a calming influence...at least when Phil isn't there, but I think he is a fellow Jumbo, so we are brothers...well, I could be his father at my age I guess......not that anyone cares, but my picks for the Final 4 if anyone is interested are Georgetown, UNC, Pitt and Duke with GTown wining it all...I will be editing this part of the write-up after the weekend...2 games left in the regular season...Meyer is so dominant on the defensive end of the floor and is a real game changer...at least 7 blocks, maybe 10 if Serge wasn't texting so much during the game...big match-up next week for Big State as they face arch enemy Kneeland and the rest of SN as they struggle for the last playoff spot, but all you need to do is get in and then maybe they can turn it on...ditto for CC as they get 6-1 G-Unit...
