Jones vs. Hurricane Hutagalungs
Last night, the Chastain Charge charged
against the Sherry Storm, becoming the first team to make it to the
semis. Tonight, one more team joins them in the quest for the ultimate
piece of our glowing rock...
(Matt, Brock, Kevin, Kali)
(Selina, Horas, Ashley, Arnold)
First thing's first...
Event 1: FREE RUN CITY
The GUTS version of an international
phenomenon, tonight's iteration goes from the Street Hop to the log-roll
version of the Sky Bridge, the Water Tower, and the Construction Site.
It's basically last night's version... in REVERSE.
The Hutagalungs won the toss and decided
that the Jones will take on Free Run City first. Kevin's taking the hop,
then we're going back to Kali on the Sky Bridge, Brock goes to the water
tower, and Matt finishes onto the construction site. they end up with a
time of 1:04 for 56 points. A little trouble on the water tower, but
Matt makes up for it in the construction site.
The Jones get gut-checked. Kali, a
softballing daughter, is the quickness, Brock is the strong uncle, Matt
is the wrestling nephew, and Kevin is the wise coaching dad. They've got
room for the trophy, but do you have room for the AggroCrag trophy?
Now it's time for the Hutagalungs to take
on Free Run City. Selina's gonna hop it, Big Horas is going to run the
Sky Bridge, Ashley's on the tower, and Arnold plows through the
construction site. Ashley's taking her sweet time on the water tower...
and it ends up costing them in the end, clocking in at 1:22 for 38
points. The Cyclones are overblowing the Hurricanes, 56-38.
Time for the Hutagalungs to get
gut-checked. Ashley (niece) is the soccer chick, and brother Arnold is
her coach. Daughter Selina is on the color guard. But the secret weapon
according to team captain dad Horas... the rainbow socks.
Event 2: SUPERTOE PK
We're bending it like Beckham in mid air.
Soccerballs will be posted on tees, and your job is to kick it towards
your opponents' goal. But be careful, because your opponents, in
addition to kicking and screaming, will be goalieing as well. Each goal
is worth 10 points, and the most goals at the end of 90 seconds wins.
For the Cyclone Jones, it's Kali & Brock,
and for the Hurricane Hutagalungs, it's the coach Arnold and the
Selina and Arnold have a lot to answer
for after the first event, but at halftime, they're still trailing 10-4.
It's not a matter of them being d'ed on, as it is them not getting the
kicks off that they have to.
And after this mini-matchup between Man U
and Chivas (C-Note: Cosmos if you're old school), the Hutagalungs have a
hard time keeping up with the Joneses, as the squad in red win it,
20-12. That translates into a 256-158 advantage going into...
Final Event: AGGROCRAG
The dreaded mountain. At the top, your
dreams. At the bottom... three scoring actuators, followed by a spikey
skeletal frame. Then comes the Ice Portal, which will send your partner
up the glacial terrain, straight up 22 feet separating you from the
Crystal Peak and the win. All the while, you're coming face to face with
the beast of the mountain, complete with rocks, snow, smoke, thunder,
cold, water... and all the fury of the legendary mountain.
Climbing the Crag for the Jones is Matt &
Kevin. They'll be facing off against Horas & Ashley for the Hutagalungs.
The Jones lead by an amazing 98 points, which would normally translate
into a 9.8 second lead, but there's a cap on the headstart of 7, so
that's what they're faced with.
First team to activate their scoring pods
including the final one at the summit can call themselves the champ
And before you can say "Evan 'Rocket'
Dollard", the red team is already at the top of the peak. The Cyclone
Jones are your champs as Kevin takes his slide to victory to join his
family in receiving their first piece of AggroCrag. They'll face off
against last night's winners, the Chastain Charge.
Next time, the Rojo Grande rolls into
town to show the Eichen-Splat what's what. Be there. Until then,
no ifs, ands, or buts... my family's got GUTS!
