A topsy-turvy week full of upsets and surprises certainly has set the league on fire with only three points separating the top five with everyone still mathematically alive. Looks like I am going to have to dust of the tie-breaker rules and give them the once over. This does seem like an appropriate moment to remind everyone of the red card rule – which is if a player receives a HARD red their team will be deducted a point. What I am saying is this – BEHAVE yourself. Or as my doppelganger Austin Powers might put it – OH BEHAVE.


On the topic of who wins the Dunning Cup, this is how it will go – the team atop the table after the regular season will be awarded the cup, I will publish the tie-breaker process next week when I have no games to write about… Should circumstances allow we will have some form of tournament as a post season, as I type circumstances abound.


Time and inspiration play a big role in getting the Goalpost to the press. This week time has been a big factor – I went all the way to Santa Cruz this weekend to pull my hamstring so I got way behind on laundry and so forth. So forgive me for a brief review of games; so brief I am only going to mention my team’s game (Chaingang) where there were a couple of inspirational moments. The Wright Stuff got out of the blocks first as Mike “I am getting too bloody old” Reynolds rolled back the clock to beat Reggie “No Man’s Land” Bolden with a delightful chip worthy of a mention in the Goalpost. Unfortunately for the Wright Stuff this merely signaled a renaissance of sorts for the Chaingang who could imagine a repeat of last week’s debacle. An inspiring performance from Lisa “Braveheart” Bruce ignited a Chaingang comeback that culminated in Stephanie “can I buy a vowel Pat” Dmytriw announcing she is back from assorted injuires with a breath taking acute-angled volley that left Raul “the aging Peruvian” Carbajal grasping for thin air, and there is a lot of that in Peru. Moments later Tony “play the way you are facing” Filicchia not to be outdone rose majestically some two inches off the ground to cushion a tantalizing header past the grasping Andean. It was the icing on the cake for the Chaingang and for Filicchia (who had earlier pointed out the combined age of the ‘Gangs central defense for part of the second half exceeded 108) and who even later pointed out he had achieved a personal milestone by continuing his streak of scoring at least once in all nine seasons of the league’s history. Yes, I know there are others but please do not email me! My personal streak of never scoring in all nine seasons also remains intact.


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.
