    Philippines and Australia throw down in a basketball world cup qualifying game. Milwaukee Bucks' Thon Maker was seen trying to kick people but the Philippine players certainly kicked some ass. Investigations are coming.

    That was pretty wild. Almost started to look like ECW Hall with someone getting hit by a chair.

    Wasn’t shown well on camera, but I think the Aussie who got pulled from the pile late took some nasty headshots. They basically jumped him.

    The slo-mo got me giggling pretty good, what with the Maker "flying leg kicks"...........just awkward to see someone 14'10 tall running around trying to kick things.......then the "punches" thrown by Blatch. What a pussy. He didn't want much to do with any of the bigger fellas, but we're gonna look for the one of the little white dudes that could be a doppleganger from someone from Men at Work.

    That little bingo hall was called the ECW Arena, dammit! Show some class.

    Does Andray Blatche have legit Filipino heritage or is he a mercenary? I know that league tends to draw Americans playing out the string.

    There was no fourth quarter. It was halted with 1:53 left in the third and awarded to Australia via default. EDIT: I s'pose the third quarter is the last quarter then. Blarf.
