Fantastic!! I love it when the big teams fall. Petro is big, of course, but Agosto is bigger and has the "hotter" players. I think the last time Petro beat Agosto was in December.
Of course Mingas had a great game, but who is Morais? I've never heard of him.
"I really like the attitudes of eagles. They never give up. When they grab a fish or something else, they never let it go. It doesn't matter. In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas
