The Game Thread in the RR Forums Every year, this team has some sort of built in excuse that stirs debate among us about what to really expect/feel about this team.

I didn't know I had Tourette's syndrome until last night. My wife is very concerned. We have a top 5 center that is treated like the big oaf in the catholic league , that is a little touched and he smells a little. What gets me is our guards and wings don't feel it on the court , shit it ain't the coach , looks like the coach lets them jack up anything they want . Maybe it's a cultural thing , you know , the big oaf ain't cool , can't dance right , doesn't listen to the right beat. But why go there , people will just hate on me and call me the big oaf lover. The big oaf went toe to toe with the best in the league and in my opinion was the better player. To bad nobody on his team could see it .
