Italian Fest Recap

The city of Syracuse holds a large 4 on 4 bocce tournament on the lawn in front of City Hall, every year during its Italian Fest. This tournament has been going on for decades, but for the last seven years it has been a way for Turbo Bocce to showcase just how much better we are than everybody else.

Last year we took home all the money by winning first, second, and third place in the tournament. This year would be more difficult.

Week 2 Recap

Any day that starts with two-for-one drinks and ends with a free shot is a good day in my book, especially when the middle part of the day involves playing bocce.

Speaking of bocce, this weeks recap will include video for the first time ever thanks to Tom Montague, but before I get to that I want to acknowledge the 30 pack of National Boehemian beer donated by Adam Wozniack. Last week he sang the Nation Anthem to kickstart our season and this week he donates 30 very distinctive beers. What a guy.
