Talking Inadvertent funny comment from player

As I posted elsewhere on this board, this weekend, among other things, I am working a middle school President's Day Weekend tourney. There are teams here in Portland from all over the western U.S. My second game today (fifth overall including three local rec games this morning) involved a girls team from the Portland area and one whose uniforms read "Hoop Dreams". As we were going out onto the floor at the start, I asked one of the girls where her team was from. She said, "Boise - the one in Idaho".

I guess she didn't want me to confuse it with the Boise in Afghanistan.

Not to be confused with Boise City, the one in Oklahoma.

Hello!?!?! There is a Boise school in North Portland. Maybe she's already had people ask her if she's from there....

Juulie - these games were in Tigard. Do you really think anyone on the west side knows there even are schools on that side of town, let alone what their names are? C'mon, you know Portland better than that.

With those calls centres in India, you can almost hear the voice data bouncing off the satellites before Apu Nahasapeemapetilon starts to speak again.
