My University team had quite the adventure on our way to Trinity for a game this Monday. We got very lost on our way there so my teammate thought it would be a good idea to call his cousin that is from Dublin. The cousin asked if we were near any landmarks and my teammate replied that we were near a building with a Guinness sign on it. Of course the car bursts into laughter since almost every building/pub in Dublin has a Guinness sign on the outside!
Somehow we got to Trinity only 10 minutes late, ran half a mile to the gym and warmed up for 2 minutes before tip. We went on to win by twenty in fast paced game in which we scored 96 points in 36 minutes (Don’t know if that is a fast paced game or defenseless game). The most amusing part of the game was when my teammate got a technical for screaming “shot” in an opponent’s face before he released the ball! ‘Lacking sportsmanship’ was the reason for the T the ref explained! As you can tell basketball is quite different over here but it is all part of the craic as my teammates would say!
