Hops Challenge ~ Wednesday, December 16

To warm you up for the feature event, the match that will combat 2 ‘rivals’ on the court against each other, the “two men enter, one man leaves” Thunder Dome extravaganza, to build you up for the thirst of the keg (not that anyone needs it), then you should register for the final event of 2015 and play a match in this year’s Hops Challenge!

Starting at around 4pm, I will match you up against a player of equal ability (or as close to it as possible) and you will play a full best of 5 match. There will be two teams, the captains of those teams will be the players of the main event. In reality, your result only counts for pride – and ranking points since I will enter them on the Sporty HQ system – because which team ends up winning is completely irrelevant. What is relevant, is who wins the final encounter, because the loser will end up having to pay for the keg everybody else is drinking! We can only take 32 players for this, otherwise we’ll have to start too early and finish just before Christmas.


“Let’s get ready to rummmmmmbllllle….!”

In the right corner, weighing in at 195 pounds (give or take a night out on the town), the man with the sharpest tongue in trash-talking ever to grace a squash court, camouflaging himself as homely by living in the friendly neighborhood of Royal Oak but is seen at more social events than the entire Kardashian family, coming in with a 2015 record of 24 wins and 27 losses, the personification of determination, the insistence of persistence, SANTE – God-forbid-any-of-his-fashion-statements-become-trend – FRATARCANGELI!!!


In the left corner, weighing in at a discreet 180 pounds, the quietest spoken squash player that anyone has never heard, seemingly impossible to upset but then so was Hannibal Lecter, living off the radar somewhere in the Pointes, coming in with a 2015 record of 14 wins and 22 losses, the brick tower of flower power, in infallibility of tranquility, ANDY – can’t-we-all-just-get-along – ADAMO!!!

These competitors have recorded 14 results over the years with Andy holding a slim 8 match to 6 lead. Of those 14 matches, 8 of them went to 5 games. So we can expect an all-out brawl! Especially when the keg is on the line!

To register for a match before Sante and Andy have at each other, e-mail me by Monday, December 14. Even if you do not wish to play, come on down and socialize, cheer on the lads, have a drink at their expense, let’s rock the joint!
