Off the Tracks – Week #5
February 24, 2010Posted by on
I was a little nervous coming into this match. We’ve been here before, climbing to within a game or two of first place and getting beaten badly enough to send us into a downward spiral for the rest of the season.
I’m happy to report that didn’t happen this time. We played up to the competition last night, and our competition was very good. Off the Tracks is the best team we’ve played since Casey’s RBs last season, with no weak link to target. We didn’t all play consistently well, but when the shots had to be made each of us managed to pull it off.
A very big “thank you” to Moose, who filled in for Vulture last night. Actually, he’s a good example of what I’m talking about. In his first game—not just of the evening but since early November!—he started off very shakily and was freezing me at one point. It looked like a loss for our side, but then he banged out a hat trick and suddenly it was the other team that was frozen, and we managed to snatch an early win.
I am also very happy to report that yet again, our opponents were really very classy and gracious. I make a point of mentioning this because in the past this unfortunately hasn’t always been true. In that respect, this may be the best group of teams I’ve played with. (And since the whole point of this league is to have fun every Tuesday night, that’s really the only respect that matters.)
Which brings us to next week’s match against Muggs Away. They are a wretched, mean-spirited, whiny collection of sociopaths. Pure evil. So, say a prayer for us next Tuesday, so that the forces of darkness may be vanquished.
Final score: a 9-4 win.
