Down by 16 points with 14 minutes left in the second half....

I know you’ve all been at the tip of your seats and checking this page every minute for the latest on how Air Pup is doing in the local rec. league.

Well, we were down by 10 at the half, then after a quick 6 minutes into the 2nd half, we found ourselves down 16 with 14 minutes left in the game.

This is usually the point where we get even worst. But… Call it the Valentine’s day miracle, or maybe just that the other team was butt ass tired (they only had 5 players so no subs), but we started to come back. With 2 minutes left, we took the lead for the first time (not just in this game, but EVER. Sad I know.).

We kept our composure and broke the full court press. We were fouled, but we hit our free throws. With .8 seconds left, up by one point, the other team had one tip play left to snatch victory away. The ball was thrown in, and his man was there for tip...

The ball bounced on the iron a couple of times. Then.. it dropped off to the right.

Yes, it finally happened.

Team Pup Wins!! Team Pup Wins!!

Looks like everything’s coming up Pup lately. I better go buy a lottery ticket.
