Good lord. So last week the Rainmen sent out a press release saying that Georgia will be flying up to play in Halifax on the 9th and 10th to replace Corning… but the ABA schedule says otherwise! The Rainmen schedule still says Georgia are coming, and the San Francisco site hasn’t been updated since November 4th, though it does say they have a TBD away game on Jan. 9th. (Their website also includes pictures of the team practicing in shirts and skins, including one player practicing in what appears to be jean shorts.)
While they have played a number of games this season, they’re in a “division” which has seen a ton of teams fold. It looks like their original schedule is completely different from the one they’ve played. The ABA hating nerd community had believed at one point that the team had folded… and as irrational as some of those people are, they’re oftenn right about things like that. It appears that they’re back from the grave, but for how long? I guess one way to get them games is to fly them all the way across North America. I really, really hope that the Rainmen are dumb enough to foot the bill for this.
Of course, it’s also
possible likely that the ABA just doesn’t know who is playing who on what date. I don’t even know how to describe this mess of a league.
