Goal Post #1

posted May 5, 2010, 9:57 AM by Jim Magrogan   [ updated May 5, 2010, 10:12 AM ]

Last Thursday afternoon there were no doubt many keeping their fingers crossed that an email would land with the news that the games would once again be postponed. What a mistake that would have been. Instead of another evening polishing and lacing boots in eager anticipation; everyone had a joyous and invigorating evening sliding across the manicured pastures of the Truckee Meadows. Oh to be in England on a summer’s day. Yes, the season finally got underway – if you ever needed proof that I am not a populist you have it now.


The Week That Was:

            Lift-‘n-Pints 3 v 4 Red Hot Tamales      

            Wright Stuff 0 v 3 Mt. Rose Chuters     

            Blue Mooners 3 v 2 Chaingang  

            Pink Panthers 0 v 5 AARP                   


A couple of close ones and a couple of not so close ones; I am told though that the score lines did not necessarily reflect the balance of the games. Proof will be in the puddin’ so they say. On even better note, not a card in sight!


The Week That Is:

            May 6th

            Lift-‘n-Pints v Wright Stuff                  NV3                

            Red Hot Tamales v Mt Rose Chuters   NV2                  

            Blue Mooners v Pink Panthers             NV1                            

            Chaingang v AARP                             Reno High


Game Postponement Policy

Although I am now optimistic that the questionable weather is behind us it is advised that you check your email at 3pm on a game day  just in case a postponement has to be announced.


The Website

This year our website will provide far more answers than the past. You will find schedules, results, stats, standings, news, rosters etc. all posted. We have Peter Wallstrum of the Red Hot Tamales and Jim Magrogan of the Wright Stuff to thank.
