Sunday a.m.

by Cindy Luis on August 30, 2015

Last thread getting a little long so let’s move on to Sunday. One comment that is worth repeating is that the team has voted Manu-Olevao co-captain two years running.

Saturday, the morning after

by Cindy Luis on August 29, 2015

Good morning. The reason the blog was closed last night despite some really good observations and discussions: I was unable to monitor it while writing the story for the print edition and some took advantage of the moderator’s absence to attack players and coaches using inappropriate language.
