Catch Quattro if You Can

Hobbling around (South Valley) in quiet desperation is the English way, I hope I have something more to say! There is no denying it Team quattro is the team to beat, seeing off their nearest challengers OBG with three top-notch goals, answered only by Shelly “I am faster than Andrew” Gamble-A’s first post-partum goal. A new era may have just begun! Even Ernie “when is he old enough to play on the field?” Oliden was no answer to Quattro’s strike force that is shifting into overdrive just at the right time. Can anyone show them a red light? Well, if anyone can beat them it might be those jealous Europeans. Envy finally emerged from their recent slump and Klaus’s most recent vacation to remind everyone that the checkered flag is still within reach so long as Quattro lose some traction. They overcome a worthy challenge from always improving local computer company conglomerate – the Paper Tigers.


Down under on the lower fields the Slashers continue to knock on the door of immortality (Mike Leavitt to Me and Jeremy the Sumner Also Rises are certainly knocking real hard). For a moment they looked like they were going to sentence the Chaingang to life early in the second-half. Some members of the Chaingang seemed convinced the opposition were far too young – chatter on the sideline failed to recognize some pertinent facts: they are just getting way to old and that Jeremy “OAP” Sumner”, Mike “AARP” Leavitt And Ray “Born in the 1800s” Connolly certainly do not push the average age of the Slashers in the right direction, they are just as much candidates for the pasture as almost everyone on the Chaingang. At 4-1 it seemed all over, but some spectacular saves from Reggie “Tour de France” Bolden (he is the Karate kid to my Pat Morita) and a goal fest from the Prochazka dynasty had the Chaingang fans reminding the nervous Slashers’ dug out that they were not singing anymore. As the moments ticked away it was the Slashers turn to hang on with quiet desperation in a somewhat English way grasping for a 4-3 victory.


Adjacent, the Tartan Army pulled up their kilts to bare their pale souls to the unyielding pressure of high expectations and, shall we say, rejuvenated Real Studs who still seem to lack that one ingredient - a pinch of good luck. Instead they once again had to take a dose of salts as B&G kept their faint title hopes alive with a 5-3 victory. Like the Studs the Wright Stuff are searching for just a little luck, but again came up empty as Brian “you will fall into a deep,deep sleep” Buehler finally came back from his personal siesta to awaken the Slumbers and inject them once again in the title race; but boy will they be able to carry that weight across the finishing line? (Name that tune?)


All’s Well That Ends Well:
