Around 40 men, women and children battled through howling winds and torrential rain on Sunday. Braving the elements, they valiantly fought off the weather to reach the Trongate for the BBL Cup final. In a landmark agreement with the BBL, the Rolling Rocks SC had arranged the first ever public screening of BBL TV. Boteco Do Brasil was the venue, The Newcastle Eagles the opponents. These Rocks fans hoped to see the team lift their first trophy in a long time!
While the Rocks faithful supped on Caipirinhas and Brahma, 2 hours of drama unfolded before their eyes. This Glasgow bar rocked to the noise of excited and exhuberant basketball fans, their cheers and boos attracting the attention of more than one interested (and possibly scared!) onlooker.
Sadly it was not to be and the Rocks came away from Birmingham defeated. For the Rolling Rocks in Boteco, the disappointment of the loss was offset slightly by a great day in the company of great people. Many commented on how much they enjoyed it and asked when the next event was! (Watch this space)
