Goal-less draws galore on the men’s side so far in Rio.
Well, there were two goalless draws, but it was much more like goals galore with 27 (and counting) in the other six games.
Needless to say, this post was a shining example of a “quick trigger finger”….lol.
Well a third of those 27 came in one game so there’s also that.
