Money, Money, Money

A polite reminder to those that have not yet coughed up the dough… If you chose to pay by check or cash and have not yet done so, please try to do so as soon as possible as many of our bills are paid upfront at the beginning of the season. Chances are you will find me at Home Field on a Monday evening, the Sportsdome on a Tuesday evening or you can improve the chances of saving Saturday mail delivery by mailing your check to 5694 Tappan Drive, Reno NV 89523. Checks are payable to RSCSL. Or maybe bring payment to the games or the bar. A lot of bills are coming due so please, please settle up! Seriously, we are on a very tight budget this year.

 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.

 Match Day Two

You are welcome. Once again I provided beautiful weather for your soccer enjoyment. Last April I was blamed incessantly for the chilly climes so I am expecting a little love this time around. Take a look at the forecast this coming Thursday; I am expecting some gifts in the mail or some pints on the bar.

Golden Slumbers – Are they this season’s sleeping giant?

Marian’s Machiavellian machinations seem to be paying off down south. Bishop Manogue stadium is becoming a fortress with the Slumbers now emerging as the team to beat, despite the “Great Wall of Cork” being breached three times. Goals from McMorton and McWilson were not enough to counter the firepower unleashed by the Slumbers striker. Justin “boom, boom” Foster’s four goal barrage has left Scottish football in crisis and himself with a new title: “boom, boom, boom, boom” Foster

 Not Quite Out to Pasture Yet

Migrating north to Reno Pastures the OBG Stoners fielded the oldest team ever to stalk the forest of goal posts that is the Truckee Meadows. This was the Reno Senior Coed Soccer League squared. These guys are so old they would actually remember the 60s if they still had their memories intact. These guys are so old they even have kids playing in the senior league. These guys are so old they make Dean “Site Supervisor” Kasparian feel like a teenager all over again. But these guys were not so old that they could not beat the Real Studs 2-1; it seems wrinkles and worldliness trump bravado and beauty every time.

 In the Twilight Zone on the Outer Limits of Northern Nevada Coed Soccer

North Valleys witnessed three more high quality clashes. On NV1, now affectionately known as the Spirograph, Team quattro automatically slipped into gear with Rich “the 4Ringmaster” Dahl putting in a turbo-charged performance that floored the Tigers hopes and ambitions of erasing last week’s disappointments.

 Shifting to NV2 the Wright Stuff flew out of the gates with two well-engineered goals before the Chaingang could even find the keys to their shackles. But the second half told a different tale, a fairytale of sorts. Before anyone had noticed Jackie Robinson playing on the other field, the ‘Gang hit back and the great escape was on. Two more goals for the ‘Gang followed, both created by the vision of their charismatic new keeper Reggie “where the friggin’ heck is he going with the ball now” Bolden, known to some as the Grobelaar of the new millenia.  Alas Reggie’s fairytale second half did not have a fairytale ending as he succumbed to the constant taunting of a hostile crowd, allowing the Wright Stuff to salvage a somewhat fortunate tie from the jaws of defeat.

 

In the most anticipated match up of the night two pre-season favorites, Euro Envy and the WSG Slashers, faced off in the outer reaches that is the far flung field NV3, huh Envy playing at NV! After an “Allbright” start Envy were pegged back and surpassed by the Slashers with goals from Ryan “McMuffin” McDonald and Mike “McMuffin” McDonough. But that only succeeded in raising the “The Terminator’s” ire, who once again found himself taking care of business between the sticks. Nevertheless he still managed to find the old onion bag with a speculative three-mile line drive that tied the game at 2-2 and left the pre-season pundits scratching their already thinning heads.
