Wrong little corner. Connecticuters who live in the northwest corner of Connecticut don't call it the northwest corner of Connecticut, they call it the Northwest Hills.

That's the way we do it here in my little corner of Connecticut, we meaning those of us who wear beltless slacks, and those of us who wear black belted slacks.

Sorry, just not a fan of that type of theatrics.
Yeah, I saw that one. It was hilarious.

That was the play that got me to post. It looked horrible to me watching as an official. As a fan, it was pure comedy.

I also saw a bunch of pointing at who the ball went off of OOB BEFORE signaling the direction the ball will be going.

Looks awful for one.

Looks like you changed direction as well.

Either that or they could be doing a FIBA game which requires a birddog on every call...
