Betman has a confession to make. Betman loaths “supporters” who are cheering only during the winning streaks. You know the types who yell: “Go strong, girls!” and then forget them after the first loss. “You are our pride!” after the winning game, but silent after defeat. Why, wouldn’t they be a pride without a medal?

Betman loves these girls. Would give a kidney to each of them. Not his own, of course, Betman is a little short in kidneys these days, but you can easily buy kidney at Facebook. And Betman would never insist on such trivial things as “victory”. Joy is much more important. They have already fulfilled that goal — we are going to see them in all 14 projected games of this championship. And for Betman, they have already won! Just look at that Ladies in Red!

So, the last two games should be the easy ones: just enjoy the game and let the opponent sweat. Be most beautiful as you have been so far. Everything else doesn’t matter :)

We’ll celebrate anyway!
