More from Europe
I found this video of our game from Gembo.
And here is one from the game against the Antwerp Giants
Also, I have been exchanging emails with a gentleman from the Netherlands who attended our first game against Meppel. He said the team we played was not actually the Meppel Red Giants, as most of that team is currently away on vacation. There were a few players from that team who played against us, but the coach made some calls and got players from 3 or 4 other teams in the region. He noted that our players did not wear their normal uniforms and numbers, so the roster was not very helpful.
Of particular concern was that he reported the Dutch center scored 20 points on us in the first half alone, despite being "overweight and out of shape because he hasn't practiced yet this season." He said this guy showed up shortly before the game because he didn't leave his day job till 6:00 p.m., and cramped up after 5 minutes of play, but still dropped 20 on us in limited minutes in the first half.
