Sorry, but there will be no match report on last Sunday's game. I've been too busy sunbathing and banging the goose shit out of my turf shoes to get to it. I think it was a tie, and everyone agreed that a soccer field is a pretty stupid place to put a baseball infield.

I will post any news on the venue for Sunday on here. It will either be Goose Poop Island (down the hill from the usual field) or Trap.

Game Time for Sunday 4/19?

Can somebody circulate the time that we're starting this Sunday? Also I'd like to bring one guest if that doesn't cause any problems.

First up, I have no idea of the score. Regardless of the goals that might or might not have been due to disputed offside calls, I will confess I just didn't pay attention.

It was certainly colder and windier than had been expected, but the quality of play didn't suffer. The White team goalkeeping situation certainly suffered when Steve didn't make his train from Hoboken, and a string of outfield players took turns between the pipes with varying degrees of ineptitude.

There were pretty goals, scrappy goals, own goals - the whole flippin' lot. I just don't know how many.

MAN-OF-THE MATCH: All of us for braving the wind. And Stephen, Rocco's son, who isn't a WSS player per se but was coming back from a long lay off and scored a couple of beauties.

FINAL SCORE: 6-6. Those numbers have no basis in fact to my knowledge at all.

And now for something completely different...

Here's a funny one. If Joe M played for them, they would really have issues.

A full turn out with an 8am was something of a surprise. Tim arguing an offside call, not so much.

With gusts hanging every cross and goal kick, for better or for worse, it was the Blues who were playing into the wind who put 3 (or 5, depending on your interpretation of the offside rule) past White goalkeeper Steve. Those controversial offside calls meant for some choppy moments, not helped by the wind and some heavier-than-necessary challenges. If everyone could agree at the start not to get too physical, and not call offsides from more than 40 yards away, we would all get along a lot better.

Not that the camaraderie suffered that much, but calling a jihad or threatening to take your ball and go home over something you might well have been positive about, even without being gifted with the perfect positioning, is a little much. Even the pros are supposed to give advantage to the strikers when it's close. But I digress.

Carlos hit a fine goal for the Blues as they threatened to run away with the whole thing. Rocco "might" (depending on your interpretation of the offside rule) have scored a real peach too, but Scott P in a Blue shirt got his long legs stuck in there and could have had five by himself, but had to settle for two well placed finishes.

Look out for emails regarding any change in kick-off time later this week.

FINAL RESULT: Blues 3 (or as many as 5) Whites 2 (or 3)

MAN-OF-THE-MATCH: Scott P - got the Blue team rolling and scored two definite, no offside goals.

8am start tomorrow, on what is supposed to be the best weather day of the week. We have to wrap it up by 9:45 according to Joe, so let's kick off on time so I can open my goal account for April and start earning interest on my onion bag deposits (0.009% APR.)
