Fan Appreciation Day!
Well, to avoid dwelling on things, we will only briefly mention that the Fisheads were defeated last week by a collection of players from around
the world calling themselves the Montauk Rugby Club. More importantly, is the fact that this Saturday is Fan Appreciation Day at Riis Park and all friends and fans of the Fisheads are encouraged to come down and catch the hometown heroes in their final spring appearance of 2000.
There will be refreshments served and plenty of excitement for all in
attendance, including game analysis by Torty Johnson, motorcycle stunts by Ed "Big Daddy" Shevlin, barechested posing and flexing by Tyrone Sperling and Tommy Leonard, a lecture on the history of rugby from Ken "Mr. 5" Concepcion, practical jokes by Tippy Tipaldo, and much much more.
Game time this week is 12 noon, so get there early to ensure proper viewing.
This week, Rockaway expects to get back on track against Doylestown PA., who hopefully will have more than a few token Americans playing for them. But, if however, they are in fact a band of international all-stars from across the globe, we're certain that neighborhood celebrity Jim Brady will jump ship and sign up for a season or two. Especially if he has run up a few outstanding debts on Long Island.
Dirk Diggler finally got the monkey off his back and scored a try this
weekend after receiving a gratuitous pass from Johnny Oak. He immediately celebrated by heading to the local pharmacy to purchase several beauty items and perfumes in anticipation of a big night on the town.
Torty Johnson was named man of the match for last week’s game after a stellar performance at the hooker position.
Fragile Brad Conza sat out last week’s match with an ankle injury. He spent the party discussing his condition with a sympathetic Pete Baker. The Fishead crowd moved the post game party to the Baja Grill in Long Beach for the remainder of the evening.
Other activities scheduled for this weekend include human bowling, pizza eating competitions and the land shark game.
