“It’s All About That Fern”

The Cinderalla New Zealand Tall Black’s sensational hoop dreams soared as they hustled and impressed their way into the semi finals of World Championships (Indianapolis). Sports Illustrated calls them the ‘thunder from down under‘: “During the Sydney Olympics a picture of the team doing the haka ran in an American newspaper under the headline ‘They can’t play, but they sure can dance.’ Sweetheart, get me rewrite.” Respect. Pride. Coach Tab Baldwin: “There is nothing better than a celebration in New Zealand and we want to give them some more … to say we’re thrilled only highlights the inadequacy of the English language.” Los gringos son locos. ANZAC spirit. Captain Pero Cameron joins the greats: named All-Tournament forward. (August/September 22)
