Lightning Curtails RBVL Actions

and influence people."

His mates congratulated Fash and promptly threw him off the team and deleted his e-mail address from all of their computers.

Meteorologist Dickie Ferrin was wondering why Bugsy blew his horn when Dickie predicted that the lightening would not come anywhere near the beach. Dickie made this prediction while safely ensconced under the overhang. McMahon's was in last place in the sixth division a year ago. This year, they are in fifth place in the seventh division. That is moving up by moving down.

Charlie needs to attend extra private practice sessions to work on his bumping. The girls are improving as long as they stay out of the net. Mickey and Gene are showing good form and on their way to being Co-MVP's. Bobbie McGinn continues to show grace and flair with his unorthodox serve.

Practicing at Steve's house has paid off for Connolly's, as they actually won the first game. Game two didn't work out as well, as they got stomped. Too bad Bugsy didn't blow the horn earlier. Twenty-four more weeks to go and where were the lovebirds?

The Borders squad sure talks a lot of smack for a team that lost two games. But once again, they were smothered by the Cheese Fries team. Hopefully, Lombardo has a better game next week. There is a rematch on Monday night at 6:30 p.m. at Beach 108! Rumor has it that the Cheese Fries are looking to start a duck - duck - goose competition.

The Brooklyn Transplants split a doubleheader with the Lobster House. How come the Lobster House didn't show up at Connolly's to celebrate their victory?

Jameson's Transplants remember Pops Deboer and they are still not in danger of violating the three-Reska rule. Their attendance is pitiful as well as their play. Why is the Reska cooler filled with dented, dusty beer cans and even a few Rheingold chug a mugs?

Today's trivia question: What were the Reska's known as back in their heyday at the Hollywood Knights?

A) Kukla, Fran and Ollie

B) Mo, Larry and Curly

C) The Good, the Bad and the Extremely Ugly

D) Three Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

E) All of the above.

Please bear with us as we sometimes have to change court layouts an hour before the games begin. We are trying hard to cooperate with the Park Service aviary program. For those people who have screaming kids on the sideline, you need to remind them that silence is golden but duct tape is silver.

What other sponsor features its owner manning the BBQ grill, cooking up hundreds of hot dogs and cheeseburgers for the ball players? None!

Once again, Jeff outdid himself, feeding the throngs from the minute the first patrons arrived, to the point where no one could eat any more. An excellent job by Connolly's! That's the way to satisfy the ever-growing chowhounds of the RBVL.

The RBVL schedule now heads into its "outdoor" section, with the next five parties featuring waterfront bars. The festivities start next week with the RBVL Beach Party in Riis Park, and then moves on to the Lobster House, Pier 92, the Wharf, and the Bay House in Breezy Point. Sponsors must prepare accordingly, as the league is now made up of 500 players these days.

Next week's party is at Riis Park. See you on the beach!
