Until we string together several consecutive wins against G8 opponents, the naysayers will continue to attribute an asterisk to every victory of the BD national team. They'll dig up any excuse to denigrate our achievements. Either we didn't face a full-strength team, or our opponents had food poisoning, or they didn't care about the game, or we just got plain lucky, or aliens unfairly inserted 6-foot probes into the rear ends of our opponents (i.e. uppa de bumma).
Learn to ignore these douches, people.
