That puts us in the finals against Poland.
Out of 29 teams, we're in the final two. Surprising, to say the least. Our success has totally screwed up all our travel plans and plane reservations.
The final is Sunday at 2 p.m. (that's 8 a.m. EST), our flights were all for Sunday morning. Staying is costing hundreds, if not thousands. What are we gonna' do? Forfeit?
We are surviving on the talents of three former major college players, John Johnson from Michigan, Jim Sweeny from BC and Bob Bigelow from Penn. The rest of us are role players.
While other teams have been dressing 10, 12, and 14 players, we only have eight. The games are very physical and come down to a war of attrition.
Down one with 10 seconds left last night, Johnny got fouled taking a three pointer and then hit ALL THREE free throws to give us a 2-point win. NOBODY hits ALL three free throws in that situation but he did.
As for city of Prague, it is everything we were told before we came. Prague Castle is one of the most amazing things in the world. It took 500 years to build and you could take a couple of days checking out all its nooks and crannies. SpencerPrague saw what we could in an hour and then retreated to the beer garden nearby that overlooks the city.
Every one is tired and sore but the Thai Massage place around the corner from our hotel has worked magic.
One more game and then home. We hope.
