BoBA Post of the Week

Fire And Ice

A poor FDR imitation.

Yesterday, December 6, 2008, a date which will live somewhat in infamy, the Hawaii Warriors football team failed to secure a 24-10 lead to Cincinatti, squandering it late in the fourth quarter. A day before, the Lakewood High School (CA) Lancers football team fell into doing the same thing against Long Beach Poly after having a halftime lead.

I regret to inform you that any hopes for magic were lost when it mattered most. This deviant has nothing but commiserations for Lakewood not getting players that could run over Concord De La Salle, as well as stern remarks for Greg McMackin, head coach of the Warriors, for failing to keep his players focused during the final quarter of play.

I also regret to inform you that other teams from Long Beach State (men's basketball, women's volleyball) and Australia (Melbourne Victory) also failed to deliver.

This day will live somewhat in infamy, but it will also live in the memory of the others teams Bonga follows. USC blanked UCLA, 28-7, and a couple deviations were posted as a tribute. AFC Wimbledon went back to their winning ways over Team Bath, while the Chelsea Football Club followed suit. Finally, Manny Pacquiao defeated Oscar De La Hoya at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, thus keeping the day balanced.
