The next round

The old men1 sat around the bar, drinking beer2 and cheering. On the TVs, the game was into the final minute.

What a game it had been. One player seems to dwarf3 the other players and acted like a wall. Another played the best defence of their career, constantly tying up4 their opponents. On the offensive, one player seems to be made of magnets5; every pass going straight to him.

The referee6, being the final arbiter of good and bad7, called a fair game, only having to single out a few players that got a little too wicked8.

The timer9 hit zero. The old men cheered, each wanting to buy the next round.
