GAME RECAP

Now that we’ve established Scooby Doo is the oldest team in the league, with 9 players 40 years or older, I think maybe we should all realize that in Summer League, experience counts.  So now let’s hear from one of the most experienced Summer League captains, Seth Gillum:

The story of this recap starts in 2006.  When I first learned about the perils of the “send me game updates” text/call.  We were playing the undefeated team, with only 6 players.  Their captain, Frankie was off at a tournament with one or two of their high draft picks.  AJ and I knew he would want an update mid & post game.  With only being able to field 6 players, we put on our 6 vs 7 zone.  And took the game 17-2 (don’t feel bad for them, they ruthlessly pummeled the league that year with 17-3 victories) And I imagined having Frankie call and ask “how did the game go?”  And how I didn’t want to be on the receiving end of that call.

2018- AJ can’t make the game.  But of course he wants updates.  And losing would be fine.  And like that team in 2006, we’ve been rolling lately  But you don’t want to get slaughtered when your co-captain is out.  One likes to feel you carry your half of the captaining weight.  And not just in terms of emails and scheduling.

Felix the cat showed up in black cat ears.  Which was intimidating.  But you focus on what you can control.  It’s too late to get team swag to match the ears.  So staying with our theme of trying something new every week, we tried out a little geometric defense with our women.  And it took Felix a bit of time to adjust.  But at 5-0 adjust they did.  That mixed with some serious handler fronting by both teams made for a tough and tight game.  Half was 8-3 Scooby (where we stopped the triangle d in the interest of fairness).   And the second half was a battle.  Everyone was being thrown to, first choices were often taken away and people were playing really really hard.  14-8 game point was a particularly intense point.  But John warden runs in front for a shockingly good D and punches a short pass into the corner for the game.   Lots of good play by both teams, and despite Scooby-Doo’s early lead, both teams played hard (and friendly) all game.  In my opinion, a win for everyone.  Especially for the guy who didn’t get slaughtered when his co captain couldn’t make the game.  Stuff like that shouldn’t matter.  In my head I know that.  But in my heart— it kinda does.

P.S. Felix – despite their low bar attendance on Andy’s interesting summer league facts page, delivered a great showing at Joxers.   Maybe it’s the ears.  It’s definitely the ears.  Way to captain Nay and David

The win puts Scooby Doo into first place, just a +1 over Ren in Point Diff.  Also, since the other game last night was two cats battling, we have the results for Dogs vs. Cats through three weeks.  Dogs still hold a slight lead with three more victories over the Cats.  As a captain of a Cat team, I know it’s time to step it up.

Oh boy, fasten your seat belts.  Please keep your head and arms inside the vehicle, and secure all your belongings.  It’s time for another drunken Reedcap.  Can you handle it?  Can you?

(This is where, if I had that kind of time, I would totally make a video of Jack Nicholson saying “You can’t handle the truth!” from “A Few Good Men” but mute the word truth and insert my own voice saying Reedcap.  So just imagine that I did that.)

Seth Gillum’s team: “We’re older men, and have lots of money, let us pay for your drink”s”…..(pick-up line)

~ actual quote from one of their old guys at the bar…not saying whooo. also they brought underage 18…girls to the bar, while i told my undetage girls 19, 20 they couldnt join …..

seth is the least spirited captain in ALLL of summer league  (Editor’s note.  I know he’s being drunkenly sarcastic.  I just want to make sure you ALL know that.)

BOYZZZZ—

ALMOST every guy threw a B A D turnover tooking to score and get us back in this.

LIppy, NICk – RAN SOOO MANY POINTS. and then kept runing lock down D on guys he sholdnt hav ebeen able to D, somehow…life finds a way. (secret, i weant him to throw down field more….

Justin Marsh – heady, HEADY player, locked down handlers on D big time, and had one of the most perfect hucks I’ve evner seen, for a score, (negated by the ugliest huck ive ever seen, for not s score)

Thomas Pindeda/Eric Kirkham – one person, calmed us, got D’s threw dimes, threw some turns, slipped a lot on the T U R F…..i think my team needs turf cleats….soooos many slips….bad huck, back huck…Puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurfect huck. these guys are both boss once they get their footing. Pineda on D (hnad italian kissy thing). cant be stopped. (Kirkham had some mad cat puns at the bar)

D=con – can get whatever he wants, just has to make up his mind.. and He can beat u and your moehter with him. as long as we dont UNDER throw him.(derek lay fronted him and got like 3 D’s cause we had jello arms)

Aner Moss – got pissed off that he gentemanly sat out a number of points, showed his stuff throwing a sweet mid range score. bro can get open when he wants. and throw what he wants.

Horace – the male version of Nay, takes care of the disc, makes the right decision, doesn’t drop, doesn’t get beat,. fuck, gotta get this guy the disc more.

Josue – amazing deep threath…maybe toooooo good of a deep threat. we all wanted to throw to him. we threw some bad stuff, cause he’s that good. but he got D’s he can throw. he’s goood.

Evan baker – when he decides to run and isn’t injured. Is the 2nd best player on the field, ANY field. he can throw too. played through an injury, but WATCH OUT!

nay and i were the last 2 standing,

also fuck seth and his trades, does anyones have more trades in summer league than seth? huh’;. ??? i.m not mad, whatver.

I consider this a major triumph that I only had to throw one editor’s note in there.  A couple other times I had to think about it, but decided it was okay to keep as is.

It’s hard to comment on a Reedcap.  You just experience it, and everyone holds hands and we all say “we got through it together” and we all nod.  Cause we did it.  We did it.

Best part about it:  So many words.  None of them mention the score.  Had to get it from Seth.
