United v Breakers Apr 28
The NBL is such an accomodating organisation. Poor NZ have been shipwrecked in Australia without even an L&P to share with 4 straws, so what do they do, they put them up in Tassie. If you can't cross the ditch, the next best thing is Bass Straight, it's like a mini-ditch, except it hasn't got a fish/fush line halfway.
So they head across the mini-ditch to John Cain Arena, down a Webster, but hey even when an NZ team is down a brother they still do pretty well. Melbourne lead the series 3-0 but all games have been close. The betting has Melbourne at $5.10 and Breakers at $1.17. Either the Bookies have stuffed up, or the news of the horror mystery bout of gastro in Melbourne is yet to hit the media. If we see CG43 squeezing his butt cheeks together and a mass player exodus during a time out then we'll know for sure.
Breakers are not travelling too badly, but Melbourne at home has Jock Zonfrillo on standby just to rate the dishes. It's hard not to go past a Chicken Biryani with Coriander Mint Raita and Onion Salad. Melbourne to come out on tops tonight.
