Those East Hamptoners of Costa Rican and Colombian descent watched the World Cup quarterfinal matchups involving those countries with especial interest here this past weekend, and while neither Colombia nor Costa Rica wound up winning, the fans (most of them skillful soccer players themselves) with whom this writer spoke pronounced themselves happy all in all.
When this writer asked Lisa McKee at Saturday’s basketball tournament at the Sportime Arena where her son Kyle was, she pointed to the tiled floor, where he’d landed moments before, after having been decked trying to go to the hoop. “There.”
“Yes,” she said, answering a follow-up question, “the offensive players are supposed to call the fouls, but Kyle’s too polite. He doesn’t say anything.”
