Bocce-ing Some More

Friday, May 20, 2011

Week 5 came… and we conquered! 

So, after beating the number one team in our league – the undefeated white team – I completely understood how the Mighty Ducks felt when they beat the dedicated Hawks or Team Iceland!  Okay, so I wathced those movies one too many times as a kid.  But don’t worry, I won’t let this get to my head... I’ll save singing Queen's We are the Champions for the finals.

Last night we did have a serious MVP moment.

This is how it went down (queue the intense, suspenseful, tempo driven music and continue reading)…

The score was 15-9; we needed just one more point to win the game.  We wanted to end it that frame, just in case the white team’s fire came back, we didn’t want to take chances here.   

Veni Vidi Bocce (VVB) New MVP: We only need one more point? 
VVB Teammates: Yes
VVB MVP:  Then we can go to the bar?
VVB Teammates: Yes
VVB MVP: Okay, I’ll throw the first ball
VVB Teammates: Go for it!!!

And then….  BAABAM – the bocce ball lands within inches of the pallino. 

A new MVP is born. 
Amazing what a little beer motivation, picturing the prize, can do.
