Re: Galesburg Silver Streaks 2018-'19: Previews, Game Summaries, Stats

Basketball demands exceptional commitment. “Basketball is a game of mistakes. The team making the fewest mistakes is going to be the team that wins.

I'm an old guy. I don't understand such things. Could someone explain how to embed a video in a post?
All you need is the URL, no tags required. Quote the previous post to see what I mean.

BTW, same thing for a Tweet.
