My family are active followers of the local semi-pro basketball team, Virtus Molfetta. This is the first year that the team has moved up into the "semi-pro" category and they are not doing so well. They are in third to last place in the rankings.
Tonight's game was one of those neck-in-neck sort of games with a close score from beginning to end with the teams alternating being ahead by two or three points. In the last two seconds of play, Molfetta scored a three-pointer that would have put us ahead by one point...but it was invalidated by that lousy bum of a referee! The game was a real heart-stopper.
I don't have the right kind of camera for sports action photography, but I liked this shot of the Mofetta Virtus team making a basket.
