The sounds of Woodstock started
the festivities at Pier 92 as the RBVL successfully celebrated the conclusion of
week 4. Pat Tubs, from the Tubridy clan and the Piranha volleyball team played
some of the best music to date. It didn’t take long before the whole league
showed that they were mostly better dancers than players.
The Bikini Bottom All-Stars
thought the name change would make a difference when they played their nemesis
Coppersmiths. They were right. This time they lost all five games. The scary thing is they played well, the games were
competitive, but they lost to the best team.
Coach John “Spongebob” Sica had only one thing to say. “Where was Kerry?” Marty
was a welcome addition but the team also missed Ava.
The Sharks circled the gang from It’s All Good in a thrilling 3-2 victory. The teams were so evenly matched that the last point decided the night. The Sharks spanked the Teases three straight games after many of their players missed the first two games. Where was Tim Murphy? It’s All Good played without Tim Murphy who left early last week because of a bad sausage. When he didn’t show up this week teammates speculated that it was still because of bad sausage. Or maybe he just wouldn’t take off his socks.
up with “Cement Shoes” Flanagan? He left after one beer, which is the
earliest he has left since the league was started 14 years ago. Embarrassed we
guess. The Sharks teased the “Teases” by letting them win the first two
games before bringing them back to reality. O’Conner, Moroney, Pappe, Louie,
Doug, Dotsy and the rest of the crew sent a clear message to Bugsy and the
Teases that they should retire half of their team including TBG.
Healey’s beat Jameson’s 5-0
and there is a search party out for the heavy hitters on the J-Men. Someone
suggested looking for them at the Lt. Williams tournament in Long Beach.
However, that loss was offset by Bobby “Big Toe” Whelan, who was also at the
Abbracciamento’s won 5-0 over
Connolly’s in spite of the return of Frank and Kevin, who were obviously
rusty. Coach Rocky may go with the 4 women line-up from now on since it has been
the most effective one this season. Charlie continues to milk an appendicitis
injury and his commitment to playing ball is in serious question. Steve gave
Donna her release to return to the White Division and ever since he has been
receiving free Corona’s from Debbie and Tracey as thanks. But he is also
collecting weekly beers from Jimmy and Timmy who want her back on Connolly’s.
Steve is truly in a win-win situation - and loving every minute of it. (And
he’s home at 10:00 p.m.) There’s talk of changes for next year’s
Connolly’s crew. Is Tommy D. coming back? Is Calvin going to be recalled by
his superior officers? Will Aaron be working Wednesday’s at the Beach Club?
The only definite returning player is Jackie!
Kerry Hills was a 4-1 victor
over Fillmore but they seem to be going through the motions and can’t wait for
the playoffs. Or are they in deep depression from the early exit of the Irish
squad from the World Cup? Or they are still worried about the still missing
Liam? They still trail the Beach House by a point in the standings as the House
lost their first game of the year in a 4-1 match against The Big Mamooshka’s.
Exhaustion and excessive imbibing may have played a part in ending the near
record winning streak of 18 consecutive games. Bernadette and Eileen picked up
the slack with precision serving throughout. Jimmy made a spectacular return
from his broken rib injury.
He was flying
all over the court with no regard for his body (or any body else’s).
Eric the Probie tried to take another net down, which would have been his second
of the year.
Fillmore really does suck wind
or no wind. The “I Got It” Sisters just don’t got it. Word has it that the
Fire Commissioner is going to keep Jimmy “The Cheap Bastard” on Wednesday
tours. Yipee!!! Tim the Great” is
having a tough time supporting the entire team on his back, Did someone say that
Lt. Jim just got busted to Probie? Wanted
- 2 Male Cross Dressers! Tim the Great is chasing all of the females away.
It’s official, TNT is having
their worst season yet!!! Although their playing skills have increased, they are
still losing (1-4 tonight), but they are having a GREAT time in whatever they
are doing (Joe, please keep your hands to yourself).
Anyway, back to TNT …
Cliff and Lorraine had an intimate encounter.
For a minute it was “From Here to Eternity” until a ball hit them in
the head. Everyone fell, up down
and all around. Why, I have no idea
… they still lost. The other team
“One Win” may be TNT’s name next year.
Angel is still lost on some beach, I guess he didn’t listen to Wonder
Women and had his head in the sun again. Marty
still has webbed toes. Boom Boom
came and gave it her all, but was too busy looking at all the young ones on the
side lines. Jimmy where are
you? As for Jim Ferraro … will
you please stay in one spot!! Now,
Wonder Woman will appear but sometime in July.
Question is, will she wear underwear?
As for the Starbucks team (DUBS, WUBS, Groatie & Cliff) we need to
get the pants on and start playing for the real team.
By the way DUBS, how is that ankle?
The Irish Circle-Win, Place or Show played against one of their favorite
teams, the champion Beach Club. They took 2 points but probably would have had
more if the ref had brought his seeing eye dog with him. (Get it - he was
blind.) Paul and Erin were instrumental in the solid play in this tough battle.
It was also a pleasure to see Jimmy Balfe remembered where to go on Wednesday
night. The Circle excelled at the most difficult chair dances and almost made it
through the evening without falling off. (The key word, almost.)
The host team, Pier 92
Piranha’s lost 1-4 to Sons of Beaches but then beat them silly at the party by
having 100% attendance. After all that’s what really counts. Additionally, the
food was outstanding from the BBQ chicken to the mashed potatoes. Captain
Allison cheered and coached her team on and they performed admirably. (Hee, Hee!!!)
Mark your calendars. On July 3rd
the league will host a beach party right at Riis Park immediately after the
nightly action. A no-frills BBQ will include hot dogs and hamburgers for all and
soft drinks for the kids and the wimps. There will be no tomatoes, no onions, no
relish, no pickles, no nothing. If you want a veggie burger you better bring it.
Bring your own beverages for a long night that will also include music,
lights and the world’s largest sand dance floor. This experiment promises to
be a classic - don’t miss it. By the way, we’ll bring the grills and
charcoal too but we could use some volunteers to help with different jobs during
the BBQ (i.e. cooking and cleaning).
Jamison’s got loaded and
lucky and crushed the Bobby-less Healy’s 5-0.
Too bad Bobby can’t control himself.
The Gatorade twins went wild in Pier 92 leaving no drink unturned. Scotty should only wish he got set like it was the end of the
world. Jamison’s in a
furious rally came back to crush Just Healy’s 5-0.
What a shame BA BA Bobby could not make it.
The dancing at pier 92 was
just like studio 54 only different. Who
knew Marie could bust a rhyme as such. The
Big MaaaaHoooshKKKKKassssss, were busy destroying the dance floor in spite of
Brian Sullivan’s little picture of Marie. Thank you and good night scooooby dooooo.
Thank god TC is back in Schmoppy land.
final administrative note, due to Commissioner Patty Melt’s imminent trip to
the maternity ward, all inquiries should be directed to acting commissioner
