Tonight my basketball team will possibly make history (on a Belgian scale). They play the third game of the playoffs finals against Antwerp Giants. They can win the championship for the seventh time in a row, which would be an unprecedented achievement. I really hope they pull it off tonight. Last year we needed a fourth game (away). If we win tonight, the Versluys Dôme will explode. Oh man, I really hope it works.
I have a late shift, but I will go - I cannot miss an option on history, can I 😉? Should we lose, should we lose the finals in the end (giants need 3 consecutive wins), I will just stand here with egg on my face, right?

Let us go Ostend, let us go!

No matter what, the past six years have been great, with special thanks to The General and the coach.

Thank you, Nicky. 19 championships, 18 cups. This last game was not the best of the series, but who cares? One of our players broke his nose. What a painful way to end the season.

When I was in my twenties, the team won 6 championships in a row. Those were the days. Basketball has changed a lot since then. The only thing we can hope for is that The General will stay another year and that he will be fit enough to keep going. He is 35 now. The guy deserves a statue; so does the coach. I do not think we have ever had a better coach. We are truly blessed.

LOL, reading the headline to this thread, I assumed you referred to a women's basketball team you yourself are playing in, Martine, and thought that was cool although I'm a total book nerd and bored by many sports. Basketball is one I can perceive of as exciting and somewhat interesting.
