Week 8 Recap

Losing at bocce is worse than 10,000 heart attacks. Its also worst than 10,000 maniacs, but not by much.

This joke was brought to you by 90’s pop music.

I want to start the Week 8 discussion with a game between Gruden’s Grinders and We Came In Like a Bocce Ball. Game one was a big win for Gruden’s Grinder’s who took a 13-3 win behind seven big points from Joe Potenza (one of which you can see on the highlight below). Gruden’s Grinders continued their winning ways in game two with an 11-6 win, behind six points from Jake Wilcox.

Then in the third game, Turbo Bocce history was made . . . Jen … Read More »

Make Up Week Recap

The Turbo Bocce season is 30 games long. That’s 10 weeks of three game sets. We also give you two “make up weeks” to get your games in. The first make up week always falls on 4th of July week, and the second is the last week of the season, which will fall on August 10th this year. Any games you have not played by August 10th will be forfeits (but everybody makes the playoffs anyway).

So this week marks not only the birth of our nation but the first make up week of our season and that, I think, deserves fireworks.

We had some on the field fireworks too as our teams had to deal with … Read More »

Week 5 Recap

WARNING: 5 Weeks of Turbo Bocce will make you unspeakably awesome. Side affects include being able to: win a game of connect 4 in only three moves, cut through a hot knife with butter, count to infinity – twice, and start a fire by rubbing two ice cubes together. Houston will start calling you when they have a problem. You won’t be able to walk on water, but you will be able to swim through land.

A Dave Matthews related blip in the schedule made for a rather low turn out, but the 50 or so that did show up (even a few smarties who used bocce as a way to tailgete for the concert) were … Read More »

Week 3 Recap

The bocce last Wednesday was more amazing than a frog who can sing and dance, but will only do it for you.

Any discussion of week 3 bocce must include at least a short discussion of the weather. I’m told it was under sixty degrees which is pretty cold for June, but the real problem was the wind, which was howling and very cold. I’d guess it was the coldest day we’ve had in the history of Turbo Bocce, but of course I’m not really qualified to make that statement, so lets send it over to our full time weather man, Ollie.

Thanks Ollie.

Despite the very un-summer like weather, 48 people came … Read More »
