Rockaway Beach Volleyball Displays Fireworks On The Sand
This news flash might have arrived too late to beat last week’s deadline at the Wave but it’s still worth printing this week.
On June 27, Mama Dianna McCool of the Social Yachties showed her daughter D. McCool of Rockaway Seafood that age and experience always prevail with a 4- 1 victory (Isn’t it nice when the team with the Mom spanks the team with the daughter?). It is going to take more than a few teenage “Fontbonne Bonnies” to stop the Socials.
The teenagers may look cute in their Corona Light tank tops, but the Socials have 40 plus years of professional beach experience. Maybe next time! And, as for the Socials, please remember that all socializing must be done as a group. Rory, did you pull a Darren? There was a report of some jerk cooking chicken at an Ocean Division net on the beach or was it some jerk chicken being cooked or was it some jerk cooking some jerk chicken? Only Frank Ganun knows. Or was someone just jerking our chain? Mrs. Vertigo and Mr. Stroke are walking in circles and tripping over their own feet but they do own two new Corona Light bikes, which should help.
The party was on afterward at founding member Connolly’s bar. Mr. Happy was Mr. Very Happy when he won the weekly Corona Light bicycle raffle. Was the fix in for the sponsor bar captain or was it the lucky ticket Joe gave Steve with his complimentary Corona Light? Only the Shadow knows. Andrew was probably the real winner. Happy birthday and Merry Christmas, son. Tax City Suns of Beaches are now tied for first with Servpro NW Brooklyn in the Star Division and they are trailed by four teams within 4 points - Wii Not Fit, Hamilton Hardware Hammerheads, EZ Company and Thai Rock Island.
Look at some of the other pennant races as they stand right now. In the Sun, the Stanii and the Odd Couples are tied for first. In the Ocean Division, Freedhand’s leads West End Tents and Sullivan and Galleshaw by two games while the Beach group shows ROCK FAM ahead of Bayview and the Kerry Hills pub by three games.
The Social Yachties lead the Moon but four squads are within 5 points of the top – Rathbones, William J. Lachner Painters, Rockaway Seafood Company and the Arverne Avengers. The Kenosha Kickers are running away with the Ocean Breeze Division but six teams are within 5 games of each other for second place - JG Electric, The Mighty Boosh, Casino Auto Towing, Federation, Sand Spikers and Jameson’s, who just posted a 5-0 sweep.
It is almost impossible to believe but the Sun Ray Division has seven teams (Atlantic Service Sandsharks, Attack Pack, Irish Circle Jerks, Bungalow Baranhas, Sleaze Fries, Comeback Cats and Le Greann) within four points of each other from first through seventh place. This is by far the most evenly competitive group in the entire league.
