vs. Gahres G-Dogs
Last night, the Howlin' Howells howled
all over the Lowe Riders to take the game and move one step closer to
the championship Aggro-Bowl. Next to enter the Extreme Arena...
(Donald, Sharee, DJ, and Danny)
(John, Cathy, Donald, John Mark)
First thing's first...
Event 1: FREE RUN CITY
Our Parkour-style obstacle course, where
you don't go over or under obstacles... you go THROUGH THEM! Today, we
start at the Sky Bridge at the Catwalk Swings, followed by a new entry,
the Skyscraper, where players will have to crawl, scrape, do whatever
they have to do to get to the top. Then comes the Zero G Water Tower and
finally from the top of the Construction Site all the way down.
Gahres G-Dogs won the toss backstage, so
they elect to go second. Donald goes to the Sky Bridge, Sharee hits the
Skyscraper. DJ goes to the water tower, and Danny anchors at the
Construction Site. The Skyscraper proves to be the killer for this run
as Sharee struggles to find a way up the darned thing. Remember, players
have a maximum time of 2 minutes to finish the entire course, and
Sharee's still on leg two! Maximum time has been reached on Sharee's leg
(45 seconds), so we move to leg three and the water tower. Final time...
2:00... for no score.
Hopefully their Gut Check bio doesn't
involve climbing. Donald "DJ" Jr. and brother Danny are baseballers.
Parents Sharee & Donald are the heart and soul of their training
Next up in Free Run City, Donald G. has
the Sky Bridge, Cathy has the Skyscraper, John Mark has the Water Tower,
and John has the anchor position in the Construction Site. Time to beat
is 2 minutes. Cathy manages to do what Sharee couldn't... finish the
water tower. John Mark has no problem at the tower of power and as a
result, the family finishes with a time of 1:33 for 27 points.
Donald and John Mark get Gut-Checked.
They're the cross-country stars, while mom Cathy likes blading. John's
the coach of the team, and he says you gotta have heart. Interesting
side note... Donald tried out for the show with a cast on... and STILL
Event 2: SKY SLAM
It's the perfect basketball scenario...
Paul Pierce hobbles the ball. You pick up the loose ball. Set up the
alley, while your partner soars above the rim and... oop, there it is.
We have three Donalds on the court, two
of them playing for the Dionne Dash. The third is teamed with dad John
for the Gahres G-Dogs. And it seems like both teams are having a problem
getting the first ball off. But then Donald D. underhands the rock
repeatedly to son DJ for the throwdown. Remember, defense is also key in
this game, and the G-Dogs demand satisfaction. Final score, Dogs beat
the Dash, 5-2, putting us at 77-20, a 57-point edge to the Gahres going
Final Event: AGGROCRAG
The roar of a lion... the cold of a
sasquatch... the still-beating heart of a leopard... and the face of a
mountain that just might lose it. Lighting up the actuators at the
Switchbacks, the Skeletal Stalagmites, and the Frozen Lava Storm at
Avalanche Peak is only half of the equation. Then their partners have to
go face to face with the face of the Vertical Freeze. God sneezes, and
all of a sudden comes an onslaught of steam, wind, rain, ice, snow, and
rocks to get in between you and the Crystal Peak, the magical top of the
mountain where dreams become reality. And some reality become dreams.
Climbing up the crag is Sharee & Danny
for the Dionnes and Cathy & John Mark for the Gahres. First one to light
up all the scoring targets including the final one at the peak of the
crag wins. Because the Gahres lead by 57, they're given a 5.7 second
The Aggro Crag has a hunger for fresh
meat... Come... It shall be fed.
Sharee has a lot to answer for after
costing her family the win in Free Run City. She never gets a shot,
though, as even with a blaze of energy from Danny at the Vertical
Freeze, any hope for the Dionne Dash is dashed as the Gahres G-Dogs bark
their way to claiming their first glowing piece of our awesome rock.
So five of our final six are set. We have
one more prelim match to go to see who'll face off against the Gahres...
will it be the Kickin' Johnsons? How about the Richards Riptide? Find
out next time. Until then, no ifs, ands, or buts... my family's got
