After Swartz Creek’s 63-59 win over Holly Friday night, many Bronchos fans expressed anger over what I deemed to be the “play of the game” in the second half.
I wrote this: “Aaron Wascha gets the play of the game for running down (Thomas) Lovachis (who everyone in the gym knew was going to slam the ball with two hands) and putting a hard-foul stamp on his forehead. It was not intentional or flagrant, only decisive. That’s what players with pride do.”
I took seven different kinds of smoke from Holly fans (go read the comments attached to the story) for supposedly praising an attempt to hurt another player. They said the foul was flagrant, intentional and downright dirty.
The difficult thing for homer fans in 2010 is that there’s always someone watching. Take a look at the photos of the play in question, and tell me if it looks like Wascha is trying to make a play on the ball. Oh, and take note of the unbiased observer watching the play. Hint: It’s the guy in the striped shirt.
