Saturday, I participated in the third annual Urban Bocce tournament. Balgavy participated in the first one back in 2004. That one was crazy and it included a lot of travelling. This one was all in one place - Coney Island.
16 teams. 1 champion.
The Green Team looked, um, great.
I was part of the team Sweet Touch and His Secret Admirer. By the way, we rebounded strong after this picture was taken. I was too focused all day to even remember to have a picture taken of Sweet Touch and me in our unis. Very high concept. You see, I was his secret admirer and was trying to be like him but messing it all up. He had black jeans, I had blue. He had orange shoes with some blue. I wore blue shoes with some orange. My Mets hat was even different than his. As I said, very high concept.

Drawing up the Courts
One of these priests is real, the other isn't.
At the end of the World Cup style first round, there was a tie in one of the brackets. The only solution was a Simulbocc. No idea on the spelling of that.
The team that took Erik and me out also took out Mike and Mooney. Oh well, at least Sweet Touch and I made it to the Final Four.
The Green Team vs. Guys in Togas. So Felliniesque.
The Finals. Guys in busboy outfits vs. our boys in red.
The game was quickly getting out of hand for our friends. Balgavy had to resort to desperate measures.
The final shot by Jim didn't end in a good result.

While Balgavy might not be nice enough to link to my pictures, here are a batch of his.

Swiped from Balgavy's pictures. Look at how I'm still in character looking admiringly at Sweet Touch. And he doesn't even notice.
