Re: New commit from Russia

Otlichno!

The Russki (may be a stretch, but I wonder if Abel helped out with the recruiting at all), the Pol and the Ukrainian will probably get along well. Not worried about that.

Re: Foul, three shots for the shooter

In the ref’s defense: Queta’s foot almost touched that hash mark line though.

Wouldn’t that count as being out of bounds as the hash mark line is connected to the baseline?

This would, theoretically, mean that a player, who was once fouled out, could come back into the game with ...
