Playoffs: Round 1 Recap & Round 2 Vegas Odds!

The first round of the Turbo Bocce playoffs came and went with exactly zero upsets (which in itself is kind of an upset, I don’t remember that ever happening before). When I say zero upsets I mean the higher seed won every game.

Week 8 Recap

Did you know that the word bocce is derivative of the Italian word baci, meaning kiss? I feel its appropriate, because bocce, at its core, is about contact.
