Ok, let's give it a try. And also try to think of it as a real story, with a beginning, a middle, and someday an end. We can even talk about it here. Since the genre is clearly "sports story", we need to decide who the underdog is, why we love them, why it looks nearly impossible for them to win, and how they win in the end. Westerns have seven plots, south sea island stories have three plots, but sports stories have only one plot: the underdog wins.
