Warriors vs Lietuvos Rytas -

Lietuvos Rytas.

 

We knew this day would come. All we could do up until now was practice as hard as we could in order to be the most elite basketball machine we could be. But was it enough?! Are we the Warriors that we need to be to beat our most feared team of all teams that happen to come from Vilnus, Lithuania and has bred Basketball powerhouses such as Sarunas Jasikevicius, Sarunas Marciulionis, Robertas Jacvtokas and (dare I say it?!) SIMAS JASAITIS?!!!

 

That’s right. Don’t step to Simas lest ye be served.

 

JUMP!!!

Dyam! Well played Lietvos Rytas!

Warriors (W-L): 3-2
Lietuvos Rytas (W-L): Uh… Did you know that Lithuanian folk music belongs to Nordic music branch which is connected with Neolithic corded ware culture?
Time: 7:30am PST
TV: CSN Bay Area
Radio: Nah.

 

Well it turns out that even though this is a meaningless preseason game, we at least have an excellent opportunity to broaden our horizons through the magic of Wikipedia. Did someone say Fun Facts? I THINK THEY DID!

 

  • Did you know that Kareem Rush played for Lietuvos Rytas for the 2006-2007 season?

  • Lietuvos Rytas’ home county, Lithuania was first mentioned in recorded writing in a medieval German manuscript, the Quedlinburg Chronicle on February 14th, 1009. So next year as you sit across your lovely valentine, be sure to wish her a happy 1000th Lithuanian anniversary as well! Also, pay for dinner this time you cheapskate!

  • Guess who is from Lithuania? Arvydas Sabonis. Guess who looks like he’s always just about to cry? Arvydas Sabonis. Not sure if those two things are related; I just know they’re both true.

 

Whelp! That’s all I have to say about that. Go forth Warriors and serve the Rough Rytas. Remember, if you don’t pull this win off…

 

…it doesn’t make a hell of a lot of difference...

 

 


Predictions:

 

  • Warriors by 7.

  • Someone named Sarunis plays.

  • Many names are pronounced incorrectly.
