Week #17 – Shame Us

On the ride up to this week’s match, I said to my driver—I’ve found it helpful to retain a driver, as it allows one to focus upon the upcoming battle—that we really needed to win the match 11-2. We’d beaten Shame Us 10-3 a couple of times, and we needed to stretch ourselves to have any hope of staying out in front of the Dart Fellas.
Well, we won the first game and then lost the next two. My driver and I looked at each other, and I just shook my head. “Well, we’ll just have to win the rest,” I said.
So we did.
Final score, 11-2 win.
Okay, so while we were playing Shame Us, the Dart Fellas were beating up on Harry O’s, 13-0. So that’s behind us. This Tuesday, we’re playing Shana’s Chosen Ones while the Dart Fellas are against Hideaway. This is our last chance to gain some ground on the Fellas, and we have to do that, because our final matches are both against Hideaway (one scheduled, and one make-up) while the Dart Fellas are playing Shame Us twice.
I think it’s just possible that we could beat Shana’s 11-2. I don’t think it’s likely, but it’s what we’ll have to do to give us a decent shot to hang onto first place.
