No, it's not an action shot. I'm stuck!
In case you’re interested, next Friday and Saturday the 40s playoffs will be held at Brookhaven Country Club. The teams looked close enough during the regular season that some of these matches should be pretty good and just one or two players missing could be the difference.
I think one of the interesting storylines will be how the mini-me flight does versus the big flight in 4.5. I don’t expect a lot of blowouts but with all the discussion we had on the fairness issue, it will be interesting to see how they fare.
The 4.5s begin the festivities at Brookhaven with the flag dropping on 6:00pm matches. We’ll have SpringPark/Sweeney versus Greenhill Red/Rossouw and JCC/Reiman versus Greenhill Blue/Rossouw. Red was flight B, the small flight with JCC. They tee off again at 9:00am on Saturday with Springpark and JCC trading Greenhill opponents. The last match will kick off in the 1:00pm slot with SpringPark versus JCC and the Greenhill border war. We can think all we want about which flight was better and whether it was all done in the most equitable fashion, but we’re going to find out a lot more in 7 or 8 days.
On the 4.0 front, they have the first pitch at 8:00pm next Friday with Huffines/Clark versus McKinney/Peterson and Greenhill/Kayser versus Brookhaven/Bartlett. They regroup for an 11:00am tip off on Saturday with Huffines versus Brookhaven and Greenhill versus McKinney. The final stone will be delivered beginning at 3:00pm with Huffines versus Greenhill and Brookhaven versus McKinney. Ok, ok, I ran out of sports analogies so I had to go to curling.
Say what you will about 40s but it’s a pretty evenly matched affair and should be fun to watch. Good luck to all the participants.
