Well that was a disappointing season
My beloved Spartans had a 16 point lead at one point in the first half and lead by nine at halftime. Then they collapsed in the final eight or nine minutes of play due to poor shooting and foul trouble, Davis fouled out, for instance, that I can't help but say was largely brought on by the officials deciding to not allow so much physical play.
There's no easy way to say this but it was a disappointing season. Out by mid-March and no championships to show for their efforts. But they did make it to the tournament and had an 18-12 record on the season. There are worse things, I suppose.
Till next year or I have more to say other than this reminds me of two years ago in more ways than I want to count...
From the file of "we have unconfirmed reports that someone may have narrowed down the area where someone you haven't heard of but nonetheless should feel would be a really big catch because we tell you to do so," David Rohde of The New York Times writes:
Pakistani military and intelligence officials said Thursday night that they believed they had surrounded Al Qaeda's No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, in a small cluster of villages near the border with Afghanistan.***
"That they deceived us about the weapons of mass destruction, that's true. We were taken for a ride," Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski said today.
So I take it that he views "terrorism" as far worse than not being able to hold governments accountable.
I would say Kwasniewski's position makes sense for someone who just wants to hitch a ride to The Power, but then why would he say this kind of stuff?
