Brisbane v Adelaide Feb 13
The Adelaide 36ers head to Brisbane to take on the Brisbane 36ers. I don't know why they just flip and coin and someone goes skins. Brisbane have yet to pack an overnight bag and sit 2 & 3 with Sobey killing the scoreboard and Victor a Law unto himself. Those two are the danger men tonight for the 36ers, the Adelaide 36ers that is, not the pretend 36ers. Gee, its like Taiwan and Mainland China. A lot of people will be doing a double take expecting this to be a training season. All we need to complete the picture is Joey Wright to roll up and bark some plays, "I’m here to coach basketball and chew gum, and I’m on my last piece of PK gum" or Andrew Jantke to appear with a clipboard. Brisbane is full of ex Adelaide players who have all said “I gotta make a move to a town that's right for me”
Adelaide 36ers, the real 36ers, have had a great run on home court and can now use a few frequent flyer points to upgrade to business class. With the sudden, shock departure of the Sloan Ranger, and the sudden arrival of Kendle, how (un)lucky were the real Sixers that Kendle is reportedly injured... “Jeremy Kendle will not yet join the active roster but continues to prepare and work with the team daily.” But at least Dillon is back. Can the Real Sixers break their Import Voodoo? Does the club need to bring in Johnny Haysman to lift the curse?
The Pseudo Sixers have been out boarded essentially every game suggesting a bit of homework to be done in this area, they need. They don’t seem to be playing a bad game of ball, but maybe they’re not listening to the coach, or are they living in a dream on their way to Funkytown. If you thought being a Sixers fan was hard, the Pseudo Sixers fans must echo that sentiment.
We can talk about it and talk about it, but The Pseudo Sixers go in as favourites and with a bit of disruption happening to the Real Sixers, The Pseudo Sixers deserve to be favourites. This is their game to lose.
