For the last few weekends, at this time Sunday evening, I’d be screaming my lungs out at the Singapore Indoor Stadium at a Slingers’ game.
My weekends will never be the same again!
Anyways, last weekend was another great time with my online co-sojourners (the bloggers) cheering for the Slingers as they led most of the game only to give it all away in the last period to a relentless Adelaide 36-ers.

I guess besides an emotionally-charged Mike Helms who lost his cool in a rather unjustified technical foul and just overall bad refereeing at the game (that got many of our players upset, including our superstar Rod Grizzard), the show was really stolen by both Mike Chappell of the 36-ers
and what seems to me like a Harlem Globetrotters import in Lanard Copeland
Notice he was vibrating so much that I could hardly catch a still shot of him? (Just an excuse for my poor photography)
You can view the full match report at the Slingers’ official site.
Today the Slingers lost again to the Brisbane Bullets in Australia, but it was such a close fight the match report was full of praises for the Slingers’ performance. Looks like the Slingers are shaping up!
The losses aside, do you know the Singapore Slingers just topped the league!?
Yessireee we did! We just won a Sportal Award for the official site in the league with the highest traffic in October!
“Singapore Slingers website was Number One in page impressions and unique browsers through October. We accounted for 10.8% of all traffic” Bob Turner, Managing Director for the Singapore Slingers
At least we topped the league in one way!
Anyways, you should know that this is NOT supposed to be a basketball or sports blog. But it’s through this blog that I met many new co-sojourners on the highway of life, bloggers whom I now invite to join me in every Slingers home game whenever I’m around town. Bloggers who have helped contribute to the Sportal Award! Three cheers for the bloggers! Yay!
So for this game against the Adelaide 36-ers, we had the following bloggers join me and you can check out their reports on the game!
