Week 3 Recap and Highlights

Local 315 Brewing week was the first beautiful sunshiny week in both leagues, and it was good to see 100+ people at bocce again!

I only vaguely remember the sun coming down to earth and trying to kill us, but that always happens on sunny days, right? Or was that Super Mario? Who can tell the difference?

Please allow this bocce recap to help get you through your Monday. I know how it is … you work, you come home, you’re bored – there’s a monkey on your back. Let Turbo Bocce get that monkey off your back and into a tuxedo . . . the way monkey’s look best.

Standout Team Performance

Dog Brothers – Jeez, why don’t you try letting other people score every once in a while.

Twinning – Really nice 2-1 win against a very good Dead Rabbits team. They had 7 aces as a team. Aces tend to be hard to beat, so I get why they won.

Buff Ave Babes – What a great start to the season they are having!

Kristen & Lisa – These rookies got their first wins and what a way to do it, with a 3-0 week! They are now undefeated against everybody who is not the reigning champion.

Super Bocce Bros – A huge 3-0 week for the newcomers. Presumably they were able to win at bocce while jumping over the sun when it attacked.

Shoe Maker – In their first game of the season (and Rick’s first time every playing Turbo Bocce) they managed to go 3-0. Pretty damn impressive, in fact that’s the most impressive performance from a Shoe Maker since Hans Christian Anderson wrote The Little Mermaid.

Glory Rollers – They look like a team ready to win a championship to me.

Perhaps you lost last week to one of these teams and you’re feeling a little down, come find me. I’ll give you a hug and try to make you feel better. “Hugs not drugs” that’s what I say . . . although I’m usually I’m on drugs when I say things like that.


Dance like nobody is watching. Because they are not . . . they’re all playing bocce!

As you may have noticed there were a TON of bocces this week. In the game between Kiss My Ace and Teen Mom III each team had an amazing 16 bocces! Also, there are two Greg Griffo’s in the Wednesday League. So if you happen to play on Tuesday and you see Greg Griffo listed that’s not the one you are used to playing with, that’s his cousin. Tuesday’s Greg is listed as Kegor to try to simplify things.

Since I tend to write these things very quickly during breaks at work, you pretty much read whatever’s on my mind at that particular moment. I wanted to take this idea one step further (as we do with everything at Turbo Bocce) and go off on a wild borderline nonsensical rant about whatever happens to be bouncing around in my brain. You can google all this stuff and perhaps learn something interesting, or you can just read it and (hopefully) chuckle at how crazy it is, or you can just ignore this section entirely. Up to you.

Winning a Turbo Bocce championship is better than carrying around fireworks that spell SAUSAGE in the air so that your husband, wife, or robot child who wears an apron that reads “I hope I’m good at this” will see it in the sky, know you’re in the mood to eat sausages, and cook them so they are ready for you to eat as soon as you get home. The fireworks will probably misspell the word sausage anyway, because hey life’s not perfect, the threat of nuclear Apocalypse is real, and who knows what kind of mutants the fallout will create – perhaps some kind of human/bouncy house hybrid? And who can concentrate on spelling under these circumstances?
