Here’s the game I wanted to see. Both teams came in 4-2 and were sitting at 5 & 6 in the standings. It’s a battle that we knew was gonna be close, and may even be a prelude to B finals next weekend. So let’s hear from Greta Becker of TBD on how everything went down:
I just need everyone to know that David Beckham looked me in the eye today and said hi to me and asked me how I was doing. I guess getting up at 3:45am is worth it.
I don’t know about you, but I was so excited for TBD to play Scoober Divers. Too bad Cory forgot to bring my notebook so I had to take notes on my phone – which is way harder because I have to constantly unlock it and type something in! UGH technology, amiright?
Anyway, TBD starts on D and we take the first point with Cory throwing to Char! Then another from Fuse to Maggie. The next point is a big deal for Cory, he finally got big, and as Xnads put it – he got up to 5’6”! Sorry not sorry Cory. I think I’ve said this before, but it’s not really frisbee unless we’re making fun of Cory in some way.
TBD had 3 or 4 points and then Scoober Divers was like “Yo, Cam – you’re fast right?” and Cam was like action speaks louder than words and burned everybody deep for an awesome huck score. Then the dumbest point happens. And by dumbest, I mean longest and by longest, I mean there were at LEAST 14 turnovers (from both teams). I don’t remember if a time out was called during this point, probably, because it was longggggg. And I was lucky enough to watch from the sideline. TBD took the point with a hammer from Papa to Cory – and as she put It – he was wide open when she threw it but Scoober Divers has some fast people and Cory was not 100% open when he caught, but at least it worked and everyone could get some water.
I’ll rattle off the next couple points since I talked about the last one for so long. I throw one to Dylan, Alex throws to Skyline (he was aiming for someone else, whoops) and then Maggie throws to me to take half 8-4! Scoober Divers get some touches in at half while I double check with our team if they’re going to make it to the tournament. I highly suggest asking in person so you can guilt people into coming if they’re iffy on attendance.
Second half starts! Scoober Divers went on a 5-point run, holy crap. And now it’s 9-8 Scoobs. We’re on the line and I address everyone “GUYS they’re going on a run, every other team said to not let this happen, we have to score this one – or we’re going to lose”. It’s all about crushing the momentum of a dope team, ya know? I like to think I finally got through to them, but I’m sure they were all already thinking that we needed to score.
I got a hand block, fuxk yeah. It never happens, and I’m excited so I’m going to brag. And we take the next point with a throw from Papa to Bnads! 9’s. Kyle dumbs to someone and they throw it to Skyline for another score – no one could remember who threw it (again I wrote it down a bit after the point). Then bnads to Fuse.
At one point it’s 11’s. and the good people of Rancho Cienega tell us that we never got approved to be there past 10, and it’s already 10:10. Arista and I talk to them and they said their supervisor is going to let us play until 10:20 and then we gotta GTFO (they were very nice about it). The next two we score I didn’t write anything down (yikes), my bad team. Dylan then throws to Maggie. We take the game 15-11 with a throw from Skyline to me.
I know what you’re thinking, damn – she only mentioned xnads once, and it’s so disappointing because it’s everyone’s favorite nickname right? Well he had some dope grabs and even had to come off the field after one because of a collision landing. But he’s okay.
Bar time! YOOOO so many people sang. Kelsey crushed it, Dylan and Papa had some sick dance moves, Daniel and I sung Queen, Erick was amazing – but the real winner of karaoke was CAM!!! OMG his southern rendition of “Lose Yourself” was Legen – wait for it ………….. DARY.
Great game to all – I loved this match up and it was an exciting game. <3
p.s. Scoobs – if anyone is missing a water bottle I picked up a Nalgene with a lime green top.
You know when you start a recap with “David Beckham looked me in the eye at 3:45AM” it’s gonna raise some eyebrows. I know you know that. And you know that I’m gonna want to know why. But this time, I’m not gonna ask. Because I’d rather let my imagination wander for this one.
Congrats on the hand block. You brag all you want. Hand blocks are fun. They hurt sometimes. I’m still waiting for someone to catch their own hand block. One day.
Cool of the fields to let you play until 10:20. They’ve been trying to crack down on that 10pm thing, but it’s also nice when give us a little leeway. I’m guessing Scoober Divers might’ve been happy they shut things down at 10. They might’ve won, or at least tied.
TBD is the latest team to join the 5 win club. It was once an exclusive club, but its membership keeps growing. Doors are closed at the 6 win club though. No entry. Unless Ninja Squirtles won last night, but I haven’t seen a score yet as of 2pm when I’m writing this.
Here’s your ridiculously unimportant and useless stat for the day. Did you know that Scoober Divers has the most players with at least three syllables in their last name?
