My impression too.
Maybe that has something to do with relative maturity levels. Plus, the National team was on a stage that's a bit more... higher profile. That can be a motivator when playing in a blowout.
That qualifying tournament in Puerto Rico isn't the Olympics either.
Almost like penny-ante.
I'm not sure why one would compare the two teams, one full of pros with years of experience playing with and against each other, the other full of frosh-to-bes. Didn't Geno lose a non-senior nat team game?
Yeah - the National team members average 10 years more experience and 10 years of generally better coaching. They are also much more used to playing on balanced teams as opposed to teams where they are the first or only option! I have been impressed with how well the team does play. There are a few 'all star' moments in each game (plays one sees in the HS all star games) but for the most part the offense and defense has been well orchestrated. And playing second halves with 40 point leads against clearly overmatched opponents can make focus a little tougher.
What time is the Final?
Pound? I know there's still a residual tie to England up in The Great White North, but aren't they using the Canadian dollar?
