Hills won a battle for first place 4-1 against Fillmore Insurance in the most
exciting games of the week. Too bad the Slyuk brothers think that they are
God’s gift to volleyball…NOT!!! Kerry Hills won the title in their usual low
key, modest manner. If they win on Saturday look for a quiet, naked, drunken
celebration. Captain Peter Kearns rated this first place finish as his and the
team’s best volleyball moment ever. It narrowly edged out their previous
number one highlight of forcing Abbracciamento’s to call a time out in a close
game back in 1990. (They lost the game but won a moral victory over the long
time powerhouse club.)
Whalen was on fire as he prepared for the playoffs. He and Bernie continuously spanked balls down on the sand as
Generation X & Y easily handled Jameson’s 5-0 despite the play of Jim
Higgins who was once again a champion for Jameson’s. With the return of Carol
Denaro from her hiatus in Hawaii, (teaching the native’s how to set),
Generation X & Y got back on track in their preparation for their
anticipated showdown with Abbracciamento’s.
Brian Sica seems focused for the Saturday battle. Coach John Sica said,
“If we can beat Abbracciamento’s in the semi’s and look good against
Coppersmith’s our season will be complete!”
(“I don’t let the last ball drop”) admitted he should not have been on the
court tonight after a rough night of drinking on his porch. Thanks for the
invite, Mark. JJ Butler retains SUPERSTAR status as usual! Mike Buckley, Sean
O’Talk and Keith Green were pacing themselves and assure everyone that they
are peaking for the playoffs on Saturday. A message from Jameson’s to
Healy’s - We’ll see you next year! A message from Healy’s to Jameson’s -
Maybe next year you’ll beat us!
Just Healy’s needed one victory to secure a playoff
berth. With Bobby Broken Toe and
the girls kicking ass as usual, they won the first two games and experimented
afterwards, losing the last three games. Dancer actually volunteered to sit out
the last game, imagine that. Does anyone
know how pretty Kerri Skehill is?????
Dancer was happy to find out that their next opponent is
Abbracciamento’s. Patty Melt, Joe and Rocky get ready.
To quote that famous volleyball referee / judge, Mills Lane “Let’s
get it on!” The young Bryan Fraser overtook his cousin Kerri and godfather
Dancer and is ready for the big time! Right now he is bumping everything
perfectly. When his spiking catches up he will be unstoppable
New Addition captain John Brennan has proven once again that he is a stand up
guy. Readers of the Wave know that he lost his temper last week but he did the
right thing and admitted that his temper got the best of him and apologized to
the Fisheads. That is why I love Rockaway!
sister put out the challenge before the night for Gen X&Y to finish early so
the weekly “fours” match could begin. When
Gen X&Y finished at 7:40 with a 5-0 sweep they waited for the Witches of
Westwick for 40 minutes.
God that Rich and Bernie are both on the same team.
“Rolly Polly Fisheads” once again secured a winning night, to finish a great
season. Dig This was busy digging a
deficit, 3-0, before winning the next two charity matches.
Honorable mention goes out to Renee Rodgers, for her hard fought play on
the left side of the court. If it
weren’t for her left, she would be all right. Mary replaced her husband, Jim
McMorrow him with flying colors. John McCann showed up with two wins already
sealed, and was associated with two losses. Does this tell us anything? He
immediately sought counseling with Donna Lynch at the Beach Club. Before
championship weekend, Regina Mansfield promises to wear a hearing aid so she can
hear Jim scream “it’s mine”, before disabling the Fisheads leading bumper.
Danny Boyle will remove his two-pound Celtic Cross so he can increase his
vertical leap this weekend. The Fisheads would like to thank Mike and Ellen
Hynes for cutting short their vacation at the Reynolds Channel Inlet to attend
this week’s pivotal match.
to It’s All Good for their great season and finishing in first in the Blue
Division. They won 3-2 against the
second place “Circling Sharks”, that was specifically designed by the Sharks
given the possible playoff rematch this weekend.
It has become apparent to the Sharks that It’s All Good has two Cement
Shoed Players in Murphy and Flanaghan. One
could only wonder at the play of Jenni Perieia, who appears
to be sexually frustrated since her
husband went on vacation.
And she left two weeks before his return.
The Sharks are considering sending Louie on a three month vacation next
year, hoping for similar results. Stephen
and Dotsy Kearns, where the hell are you? Paul,
lighten the hell up. The Sharks
wish to thank all the people that made this volleyball season special and
successful. Hey Murph, nice catch! Once again TBG (The Big Goof, I mean, Guy)
failed to show up to hear the Emperor Bugsy sing his tunes. As a result he has
been docked $25 which will go to the Irish Circle, who endured the reborn Van
Morrison for too many songs. PS - It’s All Good, when is Eddie going to play?
It’s All Good, they will see you Saturday! Does anyone know if the Joe
“Seal” Moore trade to the Sharks for a case of beer and an old pair of
sneakers has gone through? What’s holding up this blockbuster deal?
Tough guy Charlie Brady, was able to knock down the
net, but wasn’t able to handle a little sand in his eyes.
Wait until his beautiful daughter kicks sand in his face. After
struggling through a 48 hour labor it was understandable that Charlie was a
little off his game unless you consider that it was his wife that actually
delivered the baby. Abbracciamento’s was spanked by the first place
Coppersmith’s team in a match that was closer than the 4-1 final score. Both
teams will be fired up for the playoffs but there is some doubt whether Captain
Rocky will show up. Rumor has it that the Golden Goose has been resurrected and
he will be doing 24 hours of overtime at the Statue of Liberty. The Carey
brothers were fired up and able to pick up a bored, disinterested Scotty (who
wasn’t too shabby anyway). Some veteran league members want to know if Brian
Carey is considered a “hired gun” or a “ringer” since he seems to be a
playoff specialist. Chants of MVP were given to Joe McManus and Coppersmith’s
is happy to report that the Gatorade Sisters are going into the playoffs as
amicable as ever! Happy 29th birthday to Regina Carey who finished
her season tonight because she has to go boozing in the Hamptons this weekend.
Who’s going to take all of those kids to the bathroom, Saturday? Advantage
blew it!!! They could not have played any worse than they did tonight. Maybe it
had something to do with the fact that half of the team didn’t show up for the
most important match of the season. In any event, Karen “Killer” Kilbride
did some of her best work and even got dirty trying to win a game. “Boom
Boom” had the best idea all night when she suggested going straight to
Jameson’s and trashing the volleyball match, when Teddy suddenly appeared and
said he could save the day. It wasn’t his fault that he couldn’t considering
38DD’s went full commando on him. As far as M&M is concerned, she is still
squeezing reporter’s butts for more press coverage. Could she feel any
will conclude the volleyball season for 2001. The first round of playoffs will
begin at 10:00 am at Riis Park and matches will be played through the afternoon
until champions are crowned in all three divisions. Some bagel heroes will be
supplied for lunch but everyone should bring their own beverages of choice.
Don’t forget your sunscreen, umbrellas and beach chairs – it promises to be
a long, fun day. The RBVBL Awards Dinner will be held two weeks from Saturday
(8/25) at the Knights of Columbus hall at 333 Beach 90th St. All
players and friends who plan on attending should give their payment of $40 to
their team captain on Saturday. We hope that everyone who wants to attend will
be able to do so but we do have a limit of 200 people.
