To say the least – I’m pleased. When the courts are full, the keg is getting pillaged, bonus p(o)ints are being collected and matches are being done, there isn’t much else to say. Even a quick impromptu free-style rap from beloved Britt-Marie as she’s waving her glass of wine around in my office - trying to make me blush - was another cherry on the successful week two of boasters league.
Just like in week one, it was “Winky-Dinks” and “Butter Nutz” leading the way. “Winky-Dinks” picked an impressive 12 of 13 bonus points, giving them 22 for the season so far, 5 better than the next best team which is… you guessed it – “Butter Nutz”. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again – funny how that always seems to work out.

Almost keeping pace are the “Wardogs” and “Foss-ters” as they completed 9 of 13 matches but still somehow managed to fall just a little further back from the front runners. (Less bonus points maybe?) And in completely foreign territory, Patrick Petz’ team “Mercedes” (named after the fine German automobile - right, Pat?) are bringing up the rear in last place. But let’s be fair, they did have the bye in round one and are forced to play catch-up. In fact, I believe Rich Stimson’s team “Vivio’s” are on shaky ground as they are only 4 points ahead of “Mercedes” and have the bye in round 3. They better start making up matches – after only playing 5 yesterday.
Plenty of close results yesterday, none closer than Ted Morris’ (“Wardogs”) 15-14 in the 3rd over Bert Donovan (“Foss-ters”). Incredibly it was Ted’s second week in a row he has snatched victory 15-14 in the final game. Andrew Tignanelli (“Butter Nutz”) clinched a 2-1 win over Jim Kelly (“WallEED”), and Greg Baker (“Winky-Dinks”) was left scratching his head wondering how he managed to get past Jerry Rock (“Mongoose”) 2-1 and his stratosphere-reaching lobs and precariously random crosscourt flick drop shots.
The momentum is charging ahead. The past two Wednesdays have been very well attended. Let’s keep it up. Keep me smiling. And maybe I’ll here another poetic outburst from BMO!
