The World’s Greatest Source of Hyperbole


Trading 90 mph for 90 degrees certainly seemed to sweeten the mood last Thursday and certainly stimulated the need for post game carbs. All in all it seemed like a good time was had by all. Even the Chaingang must have been happy, as “Bye”Standers they were arguably the big beneficiaries on the night. With the Bhoys & Ghirls and the ‘Canes held to ties the Chaingang held onto to first place as the league table played like an accordion. Yes folks, there seems to be room at the top for anyone who wants to apply. Only 3 points separate the top 5, a stark contrast to the table this time last year.


‘Canes Comeback Pours Pain Upon Pints’ Premature Party

Late in the game things were going down easy for the Pints. Leading 2-0 with only drops left in the keg it appeared Mircea the Miraclulous and a Canes OG would be enough. But then late game heroics form Dan “Jigsaw” Henrikson and messianic miracles from ol’ half-pint Rich “Messi of the Meadows” Reid left the pints looking into the dregs of a 2-2 tie the Archbishop himself would be proud of.


Panthers Wax (so they say), Mooners Wane

It was ladies night for the Panthers who continue to rebound from the 5-0 drumming they took only weeks ago. Two members of the infamous Truckee Trio, Andrea and Kristi, combined with the youngest member of the Bowser Beauties dealt another blow against the Empire that was once the most feared franchise in the history of Truckee Meadows coed soccer. Cracks are appearing in the house that Vlad the Impaler and Birant “Pythagoras” Ramazan built. A dynasty that was once the NV of Reno has succumbed to lunacy. What are the odds; the probabilities; the possibilities even, that the machinations of these calculating geniuses (geneni?) has finally been divided and dare I say it been disintegrated……? Cue the over-the-top symphonic cacophony.


Predatory Primetime Pagni’s Positively Powerful Precise Pouncing Permanently Punishes Portly Pretenders Precocious Pre-match Plans

The almost table-topping B&G’s thought they were in for a stroll in the park against the luckless Wright Stuff. But things got off to a bad start. With news filtering through that the Miraculous & Merciless Mori was stuck in traffic on the south end of town it became rapidly apparent that the stroll might not be quite so casual. Right from the whistle the Stuff were well aware that it was only a matter of time before Ann “M&M” Mori would roll into the parking lot. They went straight to business; before you could say I will have a “Blue Moon” Mike “Primetime” Pagni was reclaiming past glories with two glorious finishes that even the combined Clans of the Bhoys & Ghirls could not realistically blame on McCollander; 2-0 at half time. But inspired by the inevitable arrival of “M&M” the B&Gs went at it; before you could say “I’ll have another Blue Moon” McScott McMorton struck with a clinical McHatrick even Ally McCoist would have been proud of…. Suddenly the B&Gs were taking that stroll once again. But with the B&G’s foot firmly off the pedal the Wright Stuff’s Yemi “the Hemi” Adelakun found a gap in the defense bigger than anything Moses could conjure. So, following in the immortal words of Henry V “the Hemi” stepped into the breach one more time letting fly a ferocious drive that left the McCollander the victim of another bombardment of cruel and heartless comments from his northerly neighbors.


Oh By Golly by Gosh: OBG Take the Fizz Out of the Six Pack

Reno High has once again become a fortress for the OBG. Mike Get out of that DellaRocking Chair’s second cleansheet on the trot (not sure you can have cleansheets and trots together), a brace from Stacy “Elvis” Castillo along with Naomi “Will” Ferrall’s first goal in goodness knows how long provided a comfortable 3-0 victory for OBG as they propelled themselves to a new address; and if luck would have it, who do thy play this week the very same occupants of #1 Dizzy Heights, Reno, NV 89506, The Chaingang. Its Rangers vs. Celtic, AC vs. Inter, City vs. United, Everton vs. Liverpool, El Classico all rolled into one.



Q - When do we move to South Valley?

A - Unless the creek rises our first games there will be June 21st.
