Here are three things I liked about tonight’s pre-season game against Real Madrid:
- Real Madrid’s uniform includes a fluorescent green stripe, which is pretty sharp.
- The video that was supposed to play as they introduced the Raptors’ starting lineup was missing the sound, which made for an odd 20 seconds of awkward silence.
- The Raptors’ announcer, Herbie Kuhn, was going all authentic when pronouncing the visiting players’ names, so that names like “Rudy Fernandez” became “arrrrrrRudy Fffffernandeth”.
And hey…free pizza on day 1! Things are looking up…
