It was a dark and stormy night as the intrepid footballers of the Truckee Meadows took the field last week. The wind did sweep, the Sun didn’t shine and a few raindrops fell upon my ruffled head and furrowed brow as I wondered whether I might be blamed for the weather. Well, if I am to be blamed for last week’s spring climes I should also be commended for the 81 degrees forecast for this coming Thursday. So put away those long pants, break out the shorts it is time for those knobbly knees to get some air.
It would be tempting to stick my neck out and suggest that the Blue Mooners are emerging as the team to beat but Lift ‘n Pints and the Chuters might take umbrage at such pontifications. Instead (literally in Stead) I will suggest that the Red Hot Chili Peppers need to find some spice while the Wright Stuff need to discover whatever that stuff might be. Still it is early in the season and as we all know on any given day Scotland can be brave, Englishmen do live in castles, one should never count chickens before they are hatched and eggs can often become scrambled. So I will post the league table and allow you to make your own predictions about who will be contenders when the business end of the season arrives upon our door step before you can say Jackie Robinson is subbing for whom this week?
It was a great turn out at Coney Island last week, so let’s continue to stimulate Nevada’s economic revival and do it all again this week. Great food, great company and be grateful you can get out of bed on Friday morning. Oh, if you have not found me to pay you leagues fees yet this week you can find me at Reno High and Coney Island or there is even the good old USPS, which coincidentally shares our league motto: Neither rain nor snow…..
