See you at Lamppost (near RC Willey) after the game

After all – all is well that ends well. Right?

Great turn out last week; let’s make it even better this week.


Coaching Opportunity

I understand McQueen High School may have some JV soccer coaching positions open. If you have any interest (or know someone who does), contact me and I will put you in touch with the powers to be.


Goalkeeper Wanted (preferably alive)

A friend of mine is looking for a goalkeeper for his Sunday men’s outdoor team and possibly his Friday night coed team. If you have any interest, contact Rob Corbin at .


Letting Your Captain(s) Know

I cannot emphasize how important it is to let your captains know about your attendance at games each week. It really helps with the planning, cuts down on last minute scrambling on a Wednesday night and Thursday morning for subs, and making sure we can get the subs as many games as possible while not creating dug out overpopulation.


Old Guys Indoor

See attachment concerning old guys indoor league which will be starting soon at the Reno Sportsdome.


Soccer Sprouts

Got kids? Between about 18 months to 10 year old? Check out the new kids soccer program at the Sportsdome, .

The South Reno Shakespeare Festival –

Tragedy, Comedy, Romance and a Little History All Rolled into One Soccer League

Amid a week or two of tempests in tea cups, much a do about not much I am beginning to get so excited I might just pee my pants even as I have had to dodge a few slings and arrows of outrageous fortune and misfortune.


Montagues vs. Capulets, make that Nicolescu vs. Nicolets

Oh Mircea, Mircea where fore out thou?

On SVL1 the injury riddled Chaingang took on the Paper(less) Tigers in a game that saw more goals exchanged than family insults in a production of Romeo and Juliet. Buoyed by the return of Mircea “the Merchant of Bucharest” Nicolescu and an even more nomadic role than usual for Reggie “Othello” Bolden the ‘Gang found their way by the Hawaiian clad quixotic Mike “who needs a nickname” Delatorre six times. Alas, whatever a Nicolescu could do a Nicolet could do better, with a family total of five goals, plus a couple more for good measure for measure from Josh “a goal week” Porter and Megan “why has it taken me so” Long “to score this season” the Tigers twice came from two behind to inflict another tragic if somewhat comical midsummer’s nightmare upon the ‘Gang.


Just As the Tqs Liked It

T’was a near run thing on SVL2 where a top o’ the table clash between the Envy and Tq lived up to its fierce billing. Goals from Tracy “upper vee” Galloway and Brad “child of the” Corn erased Klaus “the brother” Grimm;s comeback goal in a 2-1 victory has propelled the turbo charged Tq to “team to beat status” amid the topsy turvy world that is Reno senior coed soccer. With Tq’s upcoming games against the rejuvenated Slashers and OBG all bets are now off with who will raise the Dunning Cup. But there were no doubts about who raised the champagne flutes on the sidelines as the Palermo’s toasted their wedding anniversary (50th) with Gatorade’s latest carbonated grape flavor.


Into the Breach Once More, and Again, and Again

Atop the terrace SVU2, a field more suitable for the slaughter of armour laden French aristocracy than a soccer game, the Slashers re-enacted Agincourt as if they were a chapter of some Renaissance Fair. Jeremy the Fifth’s boys and girls dissected the Studs’ defense with a precision not seen since Dr. Bain and Dr. Sparkle took their first scalpels to some unsuspecting amphibian all those years ago in junior high. With shrews tamed, not a lot of love or labour lost, the Slashers continue their unyielding march toward the illusive grail that may just await them some warm late-summer’s at Lamppost.


Hubble Bubble, Toil, Trouble and a McDouble

With their early season woes a distant memory the Bhoys & Ghirls had their dilithium crytals (long dormant beneath their wee kilts) energized by a pre-game sonnet, sorry haka, performed by Scott “Scotty” McAndrew. With a ruthlessness not seen since Macbeth knocked off his last victim, the B&G devoured the depleted Wright Stuff who seemed somewhat distracted by the eternal question “just what do Scottish folk wear beneath their soccer shorts?” as Scott “can I bum a fag of yee” McMorton scurried past them in a cloud of secondhand smoke en route to his personal grail, the Holy Hand Grenade of Bannockburn, known to some as the Golden Boot.


To Score or Not to Score…

That is certainly the question Mike “the Great Wall of Cork” Milliganese was facing as he stepped up to the spot to slot, what was ultimately a consolation goal for the slumping Slumbers, past Ernesto “increasingly in demand” Oliden. Milliganese’s conversion (apparently from Irish to an Italian gentleman from Verona) was not enough as OBG (old but getting better) have served notice that they too, on this twelfth night of the season, have turned a season that was once a comedy of errors into their very own midsummer’s dream.


All’s Well That Ends Well:

See you at Lamppost (near RC Willey) after the game.

Great turn out last week; let’s make it even better this week.
