I am guessing by the lack of riots and hollering that the local sporting team failed to defeat the out of town team for the contrived yearly athletic achievement.
Fie on those out-of-towners and their apparent superior skill at this sporting activity!
Perhaps the event's officiator is to blame for our local sporting catastrophe? If only our players could avoid injury, our local sporting team would have triumphed.
I am confident that our opponents used some underhanded techniques to accumulate the necessary macguffins to gain victory.
I for one take some comfort that in next year's contest, our local sporting team will undoubtedly prevail -- unless the local sporting franchise is sold to another city.
