Hung, Drawn and Coulterized

Well, as Ann Coulter would say you are all a bunch of un-American commi-pinko atheistic something or others who should be shipped off to Gitmo. Your participation as a player, coach, spectator, supporter or even referee in this pagan kick-ball proves you should have your citizenship red-carded and all your rights as a citizen immediately revoked. Given this tirade of ignorance and bigotry I must commend you all for daring to set foot upon those satanic pastures known around the world as a football pitch. My goodness, who would have ever thought that goal-oriented teamwork, fitness, diversity, creativity, skill, talent and tactical shrewdness were qualities to fear?  Well Ms. Coulter, to borrow from Luis Suarez’s lexicon: “BITE ME”.


Meanwhile on those satanic fields The Wright Stuff exploded for 5 goals, 4 of them courtesy of Mike “ex-Golden Boot” Reynolds, in what would surely be their first win. Sadly, their opponents the Paperless Tigers also exploded for 5 goals in a game that will surely enter into Reno’s rich, if forbidden, soccer folklore.


Team Quattro sporting a few replacement parts gave league leaders the Chaingang a wee scare on the neighboring field. With Quattro’s zero to 60 in three days offence finding itself beyond the second to last defender more often than Dani & Maurice send each other anniversary cards the chances to dent the Chaingangs’ relentless march to glory were few and far between as resolute Razorback Reggie found himself picking daisies more often than picking the ball out of the net.


Up top, Larene “this is how it’s done guys” Barrett once again set the local soccer world on fire as she dipped one more time into her bag o’ tricks. Her latest 30 yard effort ignited the social media world as it went up and down, looped the loop and turned around to leave the Real Studs’ keeper all in a “Krengel” as it finally descended from orbit to clinch a late comeback and late season Strikers charge toward infamy and keeping Kim and Steve’s current mantelpiece ensemble intact.


By now, Dan “Jigsaw” Henriksen skipper of the tattered and torn Euro Envy is surely jealous of any team that can field 11 starters. Despite the recent setbacks his valiant few put up an impressive fight stonewalling OBG for long stretches before finally succumbing to the ruthless Teddy, Teddy, Teddy, Teddy Chrissinger whose relentless pursuit of the Golden Boot has Wondolowski looking over his shoulder rather than focusing on the goal in front of him.


Suffering a similar fate to Euro Envy the Golden Slumbers also succumbed to others in pursuit of glory. The Bhoys & Ghirls took the absence of Scott McScott McMorton in their stride to tuck the Slumbers to bed for another early night along with a hot chocolate and bedtime story with a cozy 3-0 victory.


Those World Cup Pools

Don’t worry I have not forgotten. I am in the process of double-checking the entries and will announce the winners soon.


Indoor Soccer

If you are a guy on the north side of 40 and want to play some indoor, Owen at the Dome is looking for some recruits for the house team. Go to if you want to play.


On a Sadder Note

For those of you who have been involved in the local soccer scene for a while I wanted to pass on this sad news. Roger Pagni passed away recently after a long battle with Alzheimers. Roger was a truly good guy who worked tirelessly to promote and support soccer in the area. Roger participated in many areas but most of you will remember him as a referee. For those wishing to pay respects, his funeral mass will take place at Immaculate Conception Church in Sparks on Tuesday, July 8, at 10:30 am. Here is a link to his obituary:
