    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.

    G Unit Wins A Nail Biter

    Ok, so it was a forfeit...but I had to get you to at least read this...I have alwasy joked that I could do the write-ups before the game even starts, and this is the1st time I have actuallly done it...looking forward to the reunion NKOTB tour...not because I have a crush on Jordan Knight, but because the New Edition tour cannot be too far behind...G Unit is done for the regular season in a somewhat unknown state as they have guaranteed themselves the #1 or #2 seed...BFab has no idea who'll show up for the playoffs in what most likely will be in 3 weeks!...can u say, rust?...

    AK is a Good Free Throw Shooter

    Big Man Freddie B came out hot in this one as he was 2/2 from the arc in just the first few minutes of the game.  Not only that but he was matched up against Sparkles defensively.  He was all over the place playing stifling defense and also put up 14 of his 16 game points in the first half.  He had a little help as it appeared Spaeth left his shot in Vegas along with his dignity, liver, and self respect as I've never seen him miss so many shots.  Biggins was up to his usual tricks with endless energy and putting up the scoop layups but unfortunately in the first they weren't falling so Serenity didn't get too far ahead by the break.  The Joes were mainly scoring on offensive rebounds as they were completely dominant in this category though the shots weren't falling.  Eric came in to the game off the bench and immediately drained two 3 pointers to keep the Joes right in it.  Just a few minutes in to the game Serenity pulled ahead by 10 but Spaeth started draining it as he hit a couple 3s and Paul was kaboubing it all over the place grabbing 13 rebounds and the Joes were down 1 with 6 to go.  But it was another one of those games that came down to foul shooting as the Joes were a dismal 6-18 from the line through the game.  Fortunately the Good King was 6-6 as he hit some crucial ones down the stretch when the Joes made their run to hold on for the win.  With that loss the Joes still remain in 2nd tied with Cleary Club while Serenity improves to 4-6. I'm sure you are all less than impressed with this scatterbrained writeup but I apologize my brain is focused on the blackjack and slot machines I'll soon be playing as I'm leaving for Vegas tonight; and hoping to return with both my corneas intact.
