In a stunning first for the Black Fish, 10 Fish presented for duty in the wee small hours of May 3, 2007, 9 of whom had sufficiently heterosexual ankle ligaments in order to play. BF10 was so keen that he forsook his adopted western European nation and scrambled home in time to hit the pine with his comrades.
A fundamentally unattractive spectacle was rendered memorable by the exceptionally tight finish that saw the mighty Fish romp home by one point, 30-29.
With so many players present to bear witness to the event, it is only fitting that each player present his one-line summary of the game (in numerical order):
BF00 - "I hate doing these fucking match summaries"
BF03 - "A narrow victory, despite modest disorganisation through a superfluity of players, but a victory nonetheless"
BF06 - "We shat on them by one point"
BF07 - "A masterclass of unprecedented interchange rotation and tempo basketball saw the Fish cruise to a 1 point victory over Homebrand, giving their season some much needed momentum."
BF10 - "This week's game saw one of the most remarkable sporting comebacks in basketball history since the LA Lakers win in the 2000 Western Conference finals, with the Black Fish dominating all over the court after initially giving away an 8 point start, they secured a season-defining one-point victory thanks to outstanding contributions from all 9 BF members, leaving the homo-boys gobsmacked"
"Never before has the fish been so black
tremble motherfuckers the blackfish are here to play
what? i violate your personal space? Well deal with it"
BF12 - "Very pleasing win with valuable contributions from the entire Fish complement"
BF14 - "Sheer weight (of numbers) got us over the line"
BF17 - "The school of fish schooled the homobranders"
BF23 - "Is you a gay??"
