FDNY Brooklyn Hoops Rocks At St. Francis

FDNY Brooklyn Hoops Rocks At St. Francis

The St. Francis De Sales gymnasium was packed Friday night as the raucous crowd energized the FDNY Brooklyn Squad to a convincing 103-81 victory over a decimated NYPD team. The gym has not seen cheering crowds this animated since the Easter tournament many years ago. The Tubridy D.J.’s generated the crowd with their tunes and the F.D.N.Y. All-Stars responded. Local heroes were highly responsible on the hardwood. Local heroes were highly responsible on the hardwood. Kevin Murphy, Keith Long and Tim Richies controlled the tempo all night.

Greg Harn and Jack "Bullseye" Bradley seemed to be having their own personal game of Horse with their outrageous shot selection. Bradley won out with his new infamous "up and under" move. At the Harbor Light’s post game press conference, Jack admitted "Maybe the game has passed me by," and has decided to assume his new position with the squad as Assistant Social Director upon his forced retirement. Great job buddy and good luck at volleyball. Oakie and the Circle Happy Hour crew really turned up the decibel level whenever Jack was involved. They’ll miss him too.

The teams’ steady play was anchored by a ferocious defensive effort by most of the firemen. Center Joe Dirt definitely had his hands full with the P.O’s huge Redhead. He claimed his mullet was slowing him down but the coaching staff is very unhappy with his midsection developments.

The team seems to be succeeding without their ex-coach, Rockaway’s favorite son Kevin "Coach Flathead" Coursey. Head referee Ken Whelan seemed relieved the FDNY’s obnoxious vocal leader wasn’t working the sidelines. His unexcused absence from the team’s charity fundraiser event has many team veterans questioning his commitment and loyalty to the unbeaten club team… to be continued. Is Barcelona in his future?

Anyway, the FDNY Brooklyn hoops squad raised and donated $1200 to the scholarship fund at St. Francis De Sales School. Many thanks to all involved in the event and the people of Rockaway and NYC responded with a great turnout. Until the next time, Bottoms Up and Calm Down!
