BOSM 09 Day 3

Posted By Himanshu Rautela, Saturday, September 19, 2009
Who was it that said 'The only thing I understand is that I understand is that I don't understand anything' ? George Bush? Pintu Sir? I can't remember, and Google's not helping. But someone said it, and it could easily have been exasperated response from a pundit being asked to analyze the girls' basketball scene this BOSM. One day you're good, the next day you're not, and every team you see on their best day seems to make you think that they'll walk away with the title. A night before it was BITS, and tonight it's JMC, perhaps, it's best to call it a tale of two nights.

Fresh from its 34-17 drubbing of MITS, you'd have expected that little bounce-in-the-steps from the girls team, as they squared up against albeit tougher (and taller) opponents in JMC. But then it was down to playing ball, there was only one team that showed up. For their very first tap, things worked like clockwork. Push-pass-move-pass-score. The BITS team looked on in despair as a bevy of JMCites flew across the court, converting every move, forcing errors and then some more of the same. The game finished at a 38-15 to JMC, leaving our team with lot to think about.

Meanwhile, down at the volleyball court, it was a tale of two bulls from the same city. As BITS met BKBIET, you couldn't help but be amused for the BITSians sitting in the stands, trying to match up with the 'BK..O-BK...Go BK' roars from our cross wall neighbors. Feeling ever so embarrassed, taking cautious look outs for acquaintances, our average BITSian started slow on the cheering, but it wasn't long before he caught up, and caught up he did. Just as we thought that the game was slipping away, deafening chants of 'Boooo' filled the stands and beyond, every time a BK player touched the ball oddly reminiscent of the 'Hoo..Hoo' of the old day's coliseum. It rallied the home team into winning the 2nd set, before wrapping it up in the 3rd. 2-1 to BITS, and this one goes out to the crowds.

As I straddle into Dr. Dosa, the head will whizzing from the game, I smile at a friend, and he smiles back, both acknowledging the different selves we've seen of each other tonight, from the usual introverts to the gut-wrenched Romans of yesteryears.
