Reno Coed Soccer Matters

Neither Rain, Sleet Nor Snow

 

Week 5

Take it from me – if you want to remain popular do not take up reffing soccer and do not organize a local soccer league in Northern Nevada that begins play before June. Your “degree” of popularity will take a nose dive, trust me. So having taken up the aforementioned pursuits I am seriously reconsidering my plans to run for office which had already been seriously damaged by my suggestion to pay my electricity bill with frozen chickens. Speaking of frozen chickens 8 soccer teams worth of them stepped out onto the soggy pastures of the Truckee Meadows last Thursday to reconvene the mighty struggle for the Dunning Cup. After five weeks of games, three sets of frozen chickens, namely the Red Hot Tamales, Mount Rose Chuters and Lift ‘n Pints are thawing from their winter slumbers more rapidly than others. It is a three frozen chicken race at this point. But with summer trips and drunken world cup stupors beckoning it could all change with one push of the proverbial defrost button. Who knows - AARP might sip from the cup of youth, the Chaingang may become unshackled, the Pink Panthers might uncover a diamond in the rough, the Blue Mooners might show up more than once in a month of Sundays and mission control might get the Wright Stuff back on the right trajectory. An updated (and corrected) table of the top 10 scorers can be found below, it is becoming obvious who is worth their weight in frozen chickens or is that turkeys?

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.

 

By the way good weather is now defined as anything above 32 degrees Fahrenheit, wind speeds below 50 mph with precipitation of any kind and intensity.
