Week 4 Recap

Monday night I had a dream that I was drinking in a Mike Tyson’s Punch Out themed bar that played “Go Your Own Way” on the jukebox while I and other patrons battled Mike in the arcade. The name of the bar was Little Fleetwood Mac. I woke up thinking that was pretty awesome, but then I remembered something much more awesome . . . it was bocce day. The bocce did not let me down!

We’ve got a lot of great highlights so lets get right to the games.

Lets start with a great game between Amerika’z Most Wanted and Rob & Jon. Amerika’z Most Wanted started the year hot, looking like the champions that they … 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.

5 Individual Stats Explained

Turbo Bocce keeps track of 5 different statistical categories for each and every player in the league.  The following is an explanation of each.

Points: This one is pretty self explanatory.  If your bocce ball scores a point, you get credit for it.  All our games are played up to 11, win by 2. The all time record for points in a season is 200.

Bocces: This is without a doubt our most difficult stat to explain, but essentially it boils down to this: when the opposing team has a ball in scoring position and you knock that ball out of scoring position with your ball, you get a bocce.  Incidental contact does not count.  Your ball striking your opponents ball and knocking it … Read More »
