Week 9 - December 16
The key this week is must-win. Everyone needs a win to
either stay in first, move into first, or avoid being
eliminated. For example, the Barbell Mafia is trailing
Ink Inc. by 1 game for the last play-off spot with 1
game left. They need this one to have any chance of
getting into the Playoffs. The Sharks need this one to
clinch a post-season berth. Who needs it more?
Match #1 - Reef Sharks (4-4) Vs. Barbell Mafia (3-5)
Reef Sharks -
Mark Pontius - He's been sharking around with 19
kills and 12 catches with a 50 mph shot.
Mark Long - He's 6'3", 205 and throws up to 50
mph. He had 2 catches and 32 kills - 2 of them for game
winners this season.
Chris Bullis - Another new guy (6'2", 200, 43
MPH) - with 15 kills and 7 catches to boot
Amy Wiseman - 5'6", 125, 36 MPH She has 14 kills
as well as 4 regens. Sweet.
Melanie Thomas - 5'4", 125, 26 MPH - 1 catch, 1
regen, 1 surfboard.
Barbell Mafia -
Jeramy Freeman - 6'0", 290, 47 MPH - He can
benchpress a car - but has only benchpressed 4 kills.
Tyrone Rush - 6'0", 200, 55 MPH - has 28 kills.
He has 10 catches, too.
Alan Grimes - 5'"10, 360, 45 MPH - 10 kills, 3
catches, leads the league in foot faults.
Melissa Coates - The blonde bodybuilder is 5'5",
150 and 37 MPH. She has yet to register a stat this
season, though she has 1 regen (which doesn't really
count as a stat)
Vanessa 'Scorpion' Altman - Still 5'9", 155 and a
31 MPH shot... and still no stats.
Round 1 - Freeman actually gets something done, as he
knocks out Pontius, but Long nails Rush, Grimes and
Coates out in one play. Freeman is next, but Altman
finally does something and regens the whole team. Way to
get on the scoreboard, Vanessa. The joy is short lived,
as Ruch faults out. Grimes does get rid of Long and
Bullis, but Thomas catches Freeman's shot, which brings
in Freeman who takes out Grimes. The Barbell women are
left, and Pontius dispatches both of them rather
quickly. (Sharks lead, 1-0).
Round 2 - Rush catches a shot from Pontius, and Thomas
and Long get simulkilled out. Wiseman turns the tide
with a catch that knocks out Rush and brings back
Pontius. Grimes needs to support the team, but Pontius
takes out Grimes and Freeman, which leaves the ladies.
Make it lady when Altman is tagged, and make it no one
when Coates feels the sting of a Pontius-propelled ball.
(Sharks win, 2-0)
We go Beyond the Ball with the Melanie Thomas of Reef
Sharks. Thomas is a PE Teacher who teaches dodgeball to
the kids. She says that the key is to get the kids
excited to play - and then you'll play. Throwing rubber
balls at people that you despised when you were 12 would
get me excited to play, too.
Someone else excited? the CPA, who are very steamed and
now tied thanks to last week's loss. Their opponents? A
M.A.D. squad who must win this game in order to make the
playoffs. I don't think they are going to get that
needed win here.
Match #2 - CPA's (5-3) Vs. M.A.D. (2-6)
Certified Public Assassins -
Tobias McKinney (6'5, 130, 51 MPH) - 18 kills and
5 catches on the season - but only 2 in the last 3
Michael 'Handsome' Costanza - He's up to 28 kills
(and 6 game winners) - but he may want some help from
Art 'Artful Dodger' Spigel - 5'9", 175, 46 MPH.
He has plenty of help from Spigel, who has 15 kills, 3
catches and 5 regens
Mandy Sommers - Last year, the 5'5" player had 12
catches. This year - 7. She has to step it up
Natasha Pospich - She's 5'7", 135 and a former
tennis pro, but she has 1 kill, 1 catch, and a wrist
Mutually Assured Destruction -
Gary 'Spaz' Davis - 5'11", 165, 43MPH - The
captain has 16 kills and 2 catches, not good numbers for
a team leader.
Tarone Cathcart - 6'1", 180, 41MPH - has 12 kills
and 3 catches - none of which happened after week #1.
Marie Philman - 5'10", 180, 48MPH - She hash 9
kills and 5 catches, keeping up with Bartsch.
Mark Vannorden - 5'10", 167, 39 MPH - The stats
say it all - 8 Kills, 1 Catch, 1 virus
Anna Bartsch - 5'4", 160, 35MPH - she has 7
kills, 5 catches and 2 regenerations. Now if only she
can find a real team...
Round 1 - Some trickery by MAD gets rid of McKinney, but
Costanza gets mad and knocks off Davis. He goes for
Bartsch - but she catches it and brings back Davis.
Cathcart leaves, but Vannorden brings him back thanks to
his catch of Spigel, and Sommers throw gets caught as
well. That leaves Pospich, who gets taken out with a
suicide kill from Cathcart (MAD leads, 1-0) Could MAD
get the huge upset?
Round 2 - Maybe they will, as MAD does the same thing by
McKinney and Costanza gets pegged. McKinney comes back
in thanks to a Sommers catch, but Davis takes out
everyone until Spigel is left. He does regen the team
and they take out the MAD women. That leaves Davis, who
regens the team, but Philbin leaves thanks to an
incoming big ball. McKinney is out, but Costanza turns
into a 1 man wrecking crew and picks off the MADsters 1
by 1, until Bartsch is the last to go (Tied, 1-1).
Round 3 - Your DMW's are Spigel and Davis, and Davis
takes out Pospich. McKinney gets a catch, but at the
expens of Sommers, while Cathicart takes himself out of
the game with a bad suicide kill. Pospich takes a
suicide walk while VanNorden goes for another suicide
kill. The CPA's regen, but a few catches later, it's
Spigel all alone against all of M.A.D. Can Spigel win by
himself? He takes out Cathcart, and a catch from a
Philbin throw brings back Costanza, who gets VanNorden
out of bounds. Bartsch's throw gets caught by Costanza,
and it's Davis who has to survive 20 seconds. He does,
and the returning Cathicart goes bye-bye. Another
Bartsch throw gets caught by Costanza, and McKinney
comes back. Philbin and Vannorden go bye-bye, and Spaz
is all alone. He gets a catch, and it's now
Davis/Cathcart Vs. Costanza/Spigel. Cathcart tries
ANOTHER suicide kill, and he misses. Davis takes out
Costanza, and it's down to Daiv Vs. Spigel. Davis misses
a shot on Spigel, but on the way to get the rebound,
Spigel gets it first and tags out Davis for the CPA win
(CPA's win, 2-1). That was a nice match - but nice
doesn't help out the MADs, as they are now officially
eliminated from playoff contention.
The CPA's get the win, which means that Armed Response
DESPERATELY needs the win to stay in pace with them.
Meanwhile, Delta Force DESPERATELY needs the win to stay
in line with Bling. Who is more DESPERATE?
Match 3 - Armed Response (5-3) Vs. Delta Force (4-4)
Armed Response -
David Benedetto - 48MPH - 30 Kills, 3 Catches,
Still a Swamp Donkey
Danno 'Kamikaze' Kingman - Still replacing the
injured Kel Watrin, 3 kills, 1 catch, and a rookie.
David Rice - 44 MPH - 18 Kills, 7 Catches, and
finally has woken up
Nicole Zingale - 38 MPH - 2 Kills, 6 Catches. But
hey she's better than...
Tanya Fenderbosch - 34MPH - 1 Kill, 2 Catches.
Paul 'Rambo' Green - A former player in the NFL -
6'3, 215, 60 MPH - and he can turn his eyeballs inside
out. Plus he has 27 kills and 5 catches.
Bobby Roe - A former college baseball player.
6'5", 235, 48MPH. He's another big boy, with 27 kills
and 4 catches..
Geoff Meed - A former professional Jujitsu
Martial Artist. 5'10", 177, 44 MPH, Not as scary as
Green with only 4 kills and 2 catch - but still scary.
Lisa Marshall - She's not 6', but at 5'10, 170
and 36MPH, she's another built player. She has 7 kills,
2 regens and 2 catch.
Linda Overheu - 5'9", 130, 38MPH. At last,
someone who I can't accuse of bulking up - but she has 3
kills, 3 catches and 1 regen. Can she cowboy up?
Round 1 - Roe takes out Benedetto and Zingale in one
shot. Marshall takes out Kingman. Mead takes out Rice
and Fenderbosch for the 5-0 shutout. That was easy.
(Force leads, 1-0).
Round 2 - Rice goes out - and Mead faults out, making
him the first Delta to be elimiinated. Green gets rid of
Zingale and Benedetto in another double kill, and
Fenderbosch finds her end thanks to Green. Kingman does
regen the team, and they get mad. Benedetto picks all of
them off except for Roe, who gets knocked out by Rice.
Round 3 - The dead people walking are Kingman and
Marshall. Benedetto continues what he did in the last
round by taking out Roe and catching on Overheu shot.
Green takes out Zingale, Rice and Fenderbosch, but Mead
gets out, leaving Benedetto and Kingman Vs. Green and
Marshall. Green forces Benedetto to drop his ball
eliminating him - and then taking the rebound to wipe
out Kingman for the victory. (Force wins, 2-1). The
Response are now 1 game behind the CPA, while the Force
will be tied with Bling, should they falter to the
Match #4 - Ink Inc (4-4) Vs. Bling (5-3)
Ink Inc -
Ben 'Psycho' Toth - 5'11", 150, 48 MPH - He's the
captain, and he has 14 Kills and 4 catches so far.
Shaun 'Hitman' Hauser - 5'1"0, 215, 45MPH - He is
up to 14 kills, 4 of those game-winners.
Strati Hovartez - 6'0", 180, 59MPH - Leads the
team with 20 kills while getting 4 catches - maybe a
rookie of the year candidate?
Kim Estrada - 5'9". 125. 37MPH - She was on the
Curves of Steel. She's no longer there, but she does
have...curves - and 1 kill and 6 catches. Heh heh heh...
'Scary' Kari Richardson - 5'8", 135, 31 MPH -
What's scary is that she has 3 catches - but no kills.
The Bling -
Portis Hershey - 48MPH - The Chinchilla has been
a little crazy with 2 Catches, 9 Kills, and two regens.
Frank Frisoli - 59MPH - He's been the main guy
with 29 Kills, 4 Game Winners and 2 catches
Adam Ullberg - 50MPH - He's been the true
sidekick with 21 Kills, 4 Catches
Mia Parlor - 7 Kills, 1 Catch, 1 regeneration -
She calls herself the female Kobe Bryant...
Alvina Carroll - 33 MPH ...which makes her the
female Dennis Rodman, though she does have 1 kill and 3
The Inksters can't beat losing teams - but they don't
lose to winning teams, so they should win this one.
We'll see if I'm right as we get to...Round 1, as Hauser
faults out. Toth joins him as his throw is caught by
Frisoli. Strati is next, and the Lady Inksters remain.
Estrada is out on a simulthrow and Frisoli eliminates
Richardson as Bling gets an easy 5-0 win (Bling leads,
Round 2 - Richardson gets taken out early, but the
Chinchilla joins her. Carroll's shot gets caught by
Hovartez and Frisoli leaves due to a shot from Hauser.
That leaves Parlor, but she regens the team as Horvartez
and Frisoli take each other out. Hauser and Ullberg also
go out while Hershey faults out. Parlor is left as
Estrada suicides walks out. That's a smart move, because
that leaves Toth and Parlor, who has no choice but to
let Toth regen the team. She has no chance against a 5
on 1 and Hauser finishes her off (Tied, 1-1).
Round 3 - The DMW are Carroll and Toth. This one doesn't
last too long, as a Hauser throw from a Simulthrow finds
his mark and eliminates Carroll. The Inksters do win
(Ink wins, 2-1), which makes the standings interesting.
How interesting? This interesting -
Certified Public Assassins
Mafia - ELIMINATED
Mutually Assured Destruction - ELIMINATED
Who gets the player of
the week? Spigel? Not at 24%. Hovartez? Not at 35%. It
must be Green - and it is, at 41%.
Well, this week had our lineups set, as both the Mafia
and the MADsters get eliminated. Next week - We see who
wins the divisions - and who has to play each other in
the wild card.
