Nothing Says Diplomacy like a good Bench Clearing Brawl

An exhibition basketball game between the Georgetown Hoyas and a Chinese men’s team ended abruptly when an all out brawl consumed the facility.

I went to a fight and a basketball game broke out.

Both benches cleared and it was upper-cuts, jabs and folding chairs for the ensuing melee. The fight broke out at the 9.5 minute mark remaining in the 2nd quarter. The rest of Georgetown’s game against the Bayi Rockets was canceled.

The Hoyas are scheduled to play the Rockets again on Sunday night in Shanghai.  Ringside seats are still available.

Butler Goes Back to the Final Four

Consider this my annual obligatory Basketball blog.

Butler University is a small liberal arts college in Indianapolis. This trip to the championship game is their second year in a row.

Once is a miracle — twice is a trend.

Good luck to the Butler Bulldogs as they meet UConn in the final game of the NCAA tourney. Maybe this year they can bring it on home.
