The Wizards completed a big comeback on Friday with a 118-113 win over the Bucks. There isn't much time to celebrate the win because L.W. already posted the preview for tonight's game against the Knicks. However, let's go through the comment numbers as well as some comments I liked from each half and in postgame action:
86 members commented a total of 1,587 times Friday night. BEALiever, Hands11, and elliotlevy2 commented over 100 times each. BEALiever led all commenters with 165. Talk about dedication!
Best comment of the first half
The Wizards weren't playing their best in the first 24 minutes of the game. However, Bucks swingman Giannis Antetokounmpo was. DCallday sums it up succinctly:
I think we all knew that the Greek Freak was bound to take another step forward this season in his development. But he was playing like another Kevin Durant when Washington wasn't in sync.
Best comments of the second half
I think this comment by wiz20 during the half,
and this one right after the game's conclusion,
sum up how I felt about this game. BEALiever, you're forgiven. :)
Best comment of the celebration thread
Rec's pile up in postgame reactions. elliotlevy2 gets props for sharing Dan Steinberg's vine of Bradley Beal showing off his swagger:
What type of victory pancake am I highlighting today?
I've highlighted pancakes from here in the U.S., Asia, and Western Europe after our first win of the season last Wednesday. Today, I'll highlight a pancake that originates from the Middle East and northern Africa: the qatayef (a/k/a atayef).
The qatayef is a dessert that is made of a batter that is similar to an American pancake, but it's cooked on just one side. The other is filled with sugar, nuts, cheese, etc. These delights are served often during the holidays, in particular during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
I like making my own pancakes when I can, so here's a video (via DedeMed.com's YouTube channel) on how to make your own qatayefs:
Where do we go from here?
Don't let trick or treaters -- or a trip to Verizon Center -- hamper your commenting. Let's have more fun on Saturday night!
