Green Room

Video: New Rochelle 61, Mount Vernon 60

Everyone wants to interview Khalil Edney, the kid who hit the buzzer-beater, but there’s no story there. He kept his head in the game to the very last moment and made an incredible fluke shot. Case closed.

The real story here is the Mount Vernon player who caught the ball at halfcourt and lofted it up instead of holding it and taking the foul. That’s a tragedy worthy of ancient Greece. Get cracking, media.

lofted it up instead of holding it and taking the foul

I think he was trying to get a shooting foul. Which he didn’t need, of course. It would have been a heads-up play in any other circumstance.

I dunno. I just watched the replay a few times (no, I haven’t watched dictator lovin’ SportsCenter for their analysis) and I think he didn’t get the shot off. Still amazing that he made it from there, especially in that game situation.

Oh stop. The kid is hating life right about now. Leave him alone. They don’t need to pile on him.

We’ve all been there, done that.

I think I’ll give a high school kid a break on that play. A pro or even a college kid, I might see it differently.

I was talking to a old friend of mine last week that gave up a game winning home run in a state champ game way back in the 80’s.

He said he still gets reminded of it by somebody almost every day of the week. Small town. I told him I would have moved away years ago.

So, this kind of thing can be brutal to a person for years.

Gotta give those refs a lot of credit for making that call without the benefit of replay. By overruling the initial call they left themselves with a big target on their backs. I can’t imagine anyone was as happy as they were when they discovered they’d got it right — by 0.1 seconds.

That post-shot pile up was wild.

“Yay! He won the game for us! Let’s smother him to death!!”

Video 1:56… New Rochelle HUGUENOTS??? That sounds like it oughta be offensive to somebody…

AP: The NR player was clearly trying to thrown the ball to a teammate, not just throw it up in the air. It was just a poor pass, with a defender behind the intended receiver. Kinda sorta like a sideline out pass in football getting picked off.

Moral of the Story:

Even though America is getting f%#ked by Obutthead, we still have time to pull off a victory!
