UCLA was almost overtaken by the Oregon Ducks today, but managed to rally back in the second half to win. I am no sports writer, and I'm not going to pretend to be, so this is how it went in my world.

UCLA turned the ball over what seemed to be about 9 billion times (actually 12) and were playing like molasses in the first half. They let the shot clock run down to 3 seconds at least 5 times, and then would take some half-assed shot that went nowhere. Kevin Love missed about 6 free throws in a row. People were getting really grumpy. Even the lady next to me who clearly knew nothing whatsoever about basketball (someone had to explain to her what the shot clock was) kept screeching "shoot a three pointer!" UCLA was down by 11. Everyone was sad. It started raining. Even God was crying.
