Kyle Wiltjer and the Canadians beat Latvia

Screen shot 2013-06-10 at 9.03.41 AM

You might only be on your second cup of coffee, but over in China, Kyle Wiltjer and the Canadian developmental team have already taken Latvia to the woodshed, 82-40. Afterwards, Kyle tweeted “3-0 after beating Latvia today, headed to a new province in the morning” with the above picture.

Team Canada is now 3-0, with wins over China, Team USA and now, Latvia. They’re playing so well they’ve even earned their own little fan club:

Nice three goggles.

    This is a good experience for Kyle

    While in China he will also study with Master Hung Lo and hopefully pick up some new kung-fu moves he can use under the basket

    Ask Kyle if he tried Cream of sumyungai soup. I don’t believe you can get it here in the US.

    4 – The “west-side” gang sign has just made it to Canada. In Canadian Pop Culture it’s just now 1997.

    I wondered why Kyle talked to Brady Heslip so much during the Baylor game at Rupp last season. Now I know.

    One day two Latvian men were fighting over a potato in the middle of dirt road. They pull potato and punch each other. Foreign man walk down road. The two men stop fighting as foreigner comes over. “Good men,” the man says “I have travel for hundred day and I am hungry. Do you have anything that I can eat?”
    The two Latvian men look at each other, and the first one hands him the potato. “Here,” says man “It’s what we have”
    “This is a rock” says the foreigner.
    “Are you sure?” asks second Latvian Man.
    “Yes,” says foreigner “Hold on, I think I have food.” The foreigner then takes a candy bar out of his pack and begins to open it
    “Hold up” says second Latvian man “I am famous politboro and I must take”
    “What’s a politboro?” says foreigner
    “For insulting and not giving up food I must take to gulag”
    “Have” says foreigner and gives candy bar
    “You may go now” says politboro man. The foreigner then walks away
    “Brother are you really politboro?” says the Latvian man
    “No, I have food now” says the brother.
    Little did they know that the candy bar is in fact a stick, and that the foreigner was local, was just suffering from being malnourished. And so, the company that presented this story shall all suffer, for that is the life of a Latvian.
    Such is life.
