I think many swimmers got lucky when Alexander Popov got stabbed. :lol:

Sorry, couldn't resist!
Fixed. I can't imagine how can anyone say that it's a hard language - it was much, much easier than Lithuanian or Russian.

Come to think of it, you must be right. All-pro cornerbacks miss interceptions like that all the time. I'm also pretty sure Tyree had been practicing that helmet grab for months!

Think about it this way - if the Pats played the Giants 5 times, they'd probably win 4 of those games. The Pats were ridiculous that year. The only chance the Giants had was to play amazing AND get lucky, which they did.
I think there is a lot of luck in any sport.

I do not know a lot about swimming and running, so help me out:
Do runners and swimmers get the exact same time every time they compete?
If not, what accounts for that discrepancy?
You don't think a swimmer or runner can have a "bad day," where they finish 0.1 seconds higher than their average time?

well, win vs G1 29-11. nobody ever won vs G1 with so huge difference except THOTA.
25-15 vs Empire, nobody ever has beat Empire with so huge difference. not forget, Empire was #3 clan on that time.
win vs TOFU, but even if you consider it loss 28-32, if loosing with so small difference vs #2 clan, then what seed we deserve with that result? #3 or #20?
win vs TSM 10-8 group stage of league.
20-20 vs THOTA after 2 batches. dont you think that tie vs #1 seed is enough to be #3?
win vs LoW in playoff of league (still not over, but it will be several days from now, with my prediction of 12-7 result or the least 11-8 for kort)
is it enough reason(s)?
of top 8 clans, 4 were beaten by us without a loss, plus tie vs THOTA right now. what more do we need to be #3 seed? do you know anyone seeded behind us with better results than us in recent period?
