WrapUp from 04-21-2002

I believe that we would have had better conditions in the first half if we would have played in Antartica. The second half was a little bit better and all the "mudders" where in good spirits. Personally, I was glad to have the wind in the first half as well as the goal without the lake on front of it. (not like that made a difference in my shooting). I don't know about the rest of you but Ihors' First Law of Second-half Dynamics seems to be flawed.

The good news is that we won and that we are still undefeated.

We had great performances by the majority of the team, Bobby and Tommy defended and distributed great from the back, Fergie and Herbie had amazing vision and control in the midfield. Eddie did an amazing job in goal. We had sporatic minutes of offensive brilliance.

The bad news is that we are still in second place due to goal differential. I know, I know, if I would have but those two shots from 2 feet away in, we would be in the lead by one goal.

Now that that has been said, someone should check into "The Snipper Situation." The last couple of weeks there seems to have been someone shooting out Fergies' legs. I belive that he or she might be hidding behind the tombstones in the cemetary. Fergie has been spotted falling down for no apparent reason all over the field.

Next week we play Arrigo United at home. They are the worst team in the leauge right now. A decisive victory would give

the "DasMagicians" sole possesion of first place. The team that is currently in first place plays the team we played on Sunday.

See you all in the middle of the week, when we will see if Eric's thunderous strike was just a fluke, if Ihor will be match fit after taking a week off, or if Johnny can keep the ball on the ground now that he baught a pair of black warmup pants.

Till wen.
