Week 1 Recap

The weather was perfect, and I couldn’t have been any more excited to play bocce. And what happened once I did play bocce? Well, lets just say it would it be an accurate statement to say that I was freaking brothers every way like M.J. Also, I don’t recall having to use my A.K. so you know what that means . . .

That’s right it was a good day all around. A good day for me, a good day for Turbo Bocce, and if you happened to be playing bocce on Wednesday I sure hope it was a good day for you too.

Round 2 Vegas Odds!
