Week #1 Giveaway
If you missed Week #1 then you missed getting “A Goal” that was hidden under everyone’s seat as Oprah shouted “You’re getting a Goal”… (and) “You’re getting a Goal” … (and) “You’re getting a Goal”… as 13-Different players scored a goal last week, 18-goals in total Oprah gave away last week.
We should also mention that 3-out-of-13 had a multiple goal games with Dominic DeFrancisco leading the way. Dom had the first hat trick of the season and jumped out to a 1-point lead over arch rival and defending leading scorer Matty Iannello
Welcome rookie Bob Snyder, who also got a goal from Oprah last week… and for whatever reasons his goal, was “Award worthy” over the other 13-goal scorers last week.
Whatever Bob.., the real question is the direction the league is going in… If you have an “Over-30 League” shouldn’t your “Rookie’s” be in their “30’s”??
Bob Snyder.., well call him “Bob” for short, has yet to produce his birth certificate like someone else who thinks they were born in Hawaii and not Kenya.., but rumor has is “Bob’s” DOB as a “1963” in the year section.
So “Bob”… Welcome to the “Over-30” League, as you are well over 30… congrats on the winning the first “Five Guys (everyone gets a blue ribbon) Award” of the season with your first shot and resulting goal, and “Bob”… good luck with Matty Iannello and Ray Nickerson chirping at you. You’ll see what we mean later in the season.
Lastly “Bob”… Good luck, have fun this season and enjoy your burger. If you want free coffee… you’ll need to earn that award, as we don’t give that one out for any random goal, you’ll need to be (the) “Player of the Week” to win that.
(And you are....?) I am Assistant League Director Mike Nazcas, I'm here to be the Grand Marshal in the Disney parade representing the Plyons for being first runner-up (a.k.a. first losers) in the 2016 Winter League Championship.
Good day sir... Here's a couple of Fast Passes and enjoy your stay at our Disney Parks
The Waiver Wire
Marky Richardson (Waived) replaced by Ron Aquino
Joe Shannon (Retired) replaced by Paul White
Paul White (AOL) replaced Bill Abcunas
The good news is Bill Abcunas has declared his team choice early in the season (Week #1) instead of his usual (mid to late) season analyzing and then choosing a playoff contender to join... For the record it historically has not worked out well for the team he chose.
Fresh Shark “Bait”
Last time Bill Abcunas and Shark Attack Captain Jim Barber were teammates the results were... Well a picture is worth a 1,000 words;
You'll notice "The Great One"Matty Iannello in the picture as well and when asked for a comment about Billy playing under Jim he had this to say;
"If Billy thinks he can do to Jimmy what "I did" to Umberto (6-goals, 4-assists) last season to help "Papa Smurf" win the Bill Mayne Award, then Good luck!!
#1 Reason to Un-retire
The #1 reason Billy is joining Shark Attack is he wants a new jacket, and he wants the Cooch's to get a new jacket. The last time Brothers (John & Mauro) Colucciello won an Over-30 Championship together was with Help Wanted and who's that familiar “8-time champion” in the front row?

These series of coincidences now have the Las Vegas odds for a Shark Attack Championship going up. They just went from "no chance in hell" to a solid 20% chance (like the rest of the 5-teams) competing this season.
Part time job opening
Both Kellie and Billy Abcunas will not be here this week. Billy is suffering from "Bird or Swine Flu” or maybe even Ebola... while Kellie is on the IR with an undisclosed lower body injury resulting in the wearing of a walking boot.
Was Kellie's injury cause by;
A) Missing a step on the stairs
B) Suffered while repeatedly kicking Billy's ass
C) Chasing pesky kids away from their home
In any event: we have a part time job opening for someone to "Shoooo” all the kids away, and remind the refs to tell “non-league” people to get down from the benches... For "insurance reasons"
