We Love Lucy

What was the biggest story in World Soccer over the past week? Was it the opening of the World Cup? Is the vuvuzela? Is it the quality of English goalkeeping? In any normal week the answer might be yes but not last week. Not a week in which Lucy Osborne of the Pink Panthers notched up the first female hat trick in recorded RSCSL history. Lucy almost single-handedly turned the form book on its head when she gave league leaders Mount Rose Chuters one big scare. Spearheading a Clintonesque comeback she had the side-lined Panthers McWatt and Henrikson salivating at the prospects of toppling the Chuters from their heavenly perch.

 

South Valley

In this hemisphere it is customary to head north for the summer but not with the RSCSL. Much to the chagrin of Sparks and North Reno-ites, the league now takes up residence at the pastoral paradise we call South Valleys Regional Sports Complex. Beginning this week (the 17th) we will be playing at the fields on Wedge Parkway . If circumstances are in our favor, all games will be at South Valleys . However, depending on the needs of the summer AYSO program a few games may have to be scheduled for nearby Galena High School . P.S. Vuvuzelas have been banned at South Valleys ; so much for the first amendment.

 

Which brings me to: Lamppost Pizza

With the great southern migration now upon us we will be switching our official post game festivities to Lamppost Pizza. It is located in the Home Depot/RC Willey shopping center just east of 395 – 1141 Steamboat Parkway #930 . www.LamppostPizzaReno.com . They will offer some specials on pitchers of domestic beer and some discounts on menu items. Some other locations are possible considerations in the future; the new Great Basin Brewery at Virginia & McCarran and the Firkin and Wolf at the Summit Sierra – but neither are open yet – which is a problem…. So after the game let’s make every effort to cry (or laugh) in our beers together at Lamppost – with school out all the excuses are diminished… Why not Bullys? Well, the short answer is we do not want to die of thirst and hunger…

 

England vs. USA

Well, I pretty much called it, although it did not come about as I would have liked. I also pretty much expressed my reservations about a certain Mr. Robert “booboozela” Green  to some a few weeks ago – just ask Maurice. That means I am now 5th in line to be the starting England keeper, Mr. Capello has been hounding me the last few days. In the spirit of pre-emptive strikes let me just say that I agree - Green had a stinker and Howard was the difference. Somehow I do not think England will be going green very soon. If nothing else, the escapades of Mr. Green have now allowed British popularity ratings this side of the pond to rise from the depths of the Gulf. I guess we owed you one. I should also add that if Mr. Green were to register for the RSCSL, I would rank him about a minus 1 on our assessment scale. Although he is a definite 10 when comes to game changing qualities. Such is life, but in the bigger scheme of things both England and the USA should progress out of the group, to meet again on the 11th….

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 acceptable.
