I FINALLY BEAT X, BUT NO PRIZE

  |   Philly Chapter   |   12 Comments

Hello All,

 

It’s Monday but at least it’s not raining here eh? As always we need Monday to get back to Friday!

 

Quiet week last week, I had date night with the bride Wednesday Night, stopped into the Clubhouse Friday but really didn’t see anyone? I know a few team members were down with the Flu going round.

 

Saturday we had full attendance for a bit at the Clubhouse.

 

So Sunday we did NOT have full attendance, one team member had other obligations for the day, Eric worked then hit up Clubhouse 1. As noted the team was split up this week, due to a creepy dude who hit us up on Saturday who we thought may be popping in on us Sunday and since the team gathering was small this week we changed venues to Clubhouse 2. Of course at Clubhouse 2 I am able to see my Liza! Yeah me! As she always does she made us laugh, kept us hydrated and early on kept us fed with some really good Hot Dogs! So to start the day I popped over to Dutch’s to wait for the 11 o’clock bell to hit Clubhouse 2. There we had a beverage of choice had some tunes going. Dutch’s Furious Pub is really taking shape, he has a nice sound system set up now, new lights all around his bar which are super cool. We do have to give props to Eric who did a lot of the work at Dutch’s Furious Pub, well done Eric! So once 11 am hit Dutch and I shuffled off to Clubhouse 2 there we had Dutch, me, a team member and later in the day X! Yes, X made an appearance and it’s always good to see her. Now apparently although already warned by Dutch the night before some of our gal pals at Clubhouse 1 were not super happy that we didn’t come in Sunday but I guess we all have to share eh? So as we sat and chatted and we found out the Liza’s boyfriend who is a GM for PJ WHEELAN’S Bar chain is making the Wings for the famous Philly Wing Bowl that is held each year and is coming up this Friday. Get this, they are cooking up 10,000 wings! Yes 10,000 wings at the event, they start Thursday night and deliver the wings 4 AM Friday, Pretty cool.

 

I guess the main Event Sunday was X and her basketball game that is at Clubhouse 2. As noted in this blog before X is Queen of this basketball shooting game. It is a rare time indeed when X does not win each and every game. Also as noted in this blog I am not really good at the hoops game so X gets a kick out of whopping my butt every time we play. Well this week once again X put up some big numbers and was looking unbeatable. HOLD ON, WAIT! What is that I spied on the score of the game after X shot, 52 points? Can’t be, X averages in the high 60’s, but there it was a big 51! X finally had a clunker of game, or at least for her. Well this little opening was what I needed, I felt like just maybe I could top that 51 score and steal a win. I looked down the bar at X with steely resolve and X stared back at me smiling with her usual confidence, a bead of sweat rolled down my brow and then I did it! I made a bet with X that I would beat her 51 points. There was a lot riding on this bet, believe me, I know there is a LOT! I can’t in good conscious reveal what the bet was but it was no booby prize let me tell ya that! Well bet was made, I hopped up passed by X with an air of extreme confidence, suddenly her smile shifted to a puzzled look, would she lose the bet? I stood in front of the game, took a deep breath, I put in the dollar, the gate opened, the basketballs rolled my way and I started shooting, suddenly it was SWISH, SWISH, I was racking up points and looking good then suddenly the hot hand went cold. I gathered myself, thought of the prize at stake and got back in SWISH mode. The clock was ticking down, I was behind, tick-tock-tick-tock I had one last ball to shoot to win the prize, the ball left my hand as if in slow motion, while in the air the clock hit zero then it happened, SWISH!! I win, I win, last second buzzer beater literally. I broke into my happy dance and strolled back towards X, she looked at me and smiled. Yes, I won the bet and was to get the prize, anticipation grew, X said, I can’t get you your prize here, I’ll get it to you later today. I waited anxiously, the hours and minutes passed but there was only silence. Well sadly the prize never came, I got a few more “hold on its coming” texts but alas, no prize to be had. Is this an empty victory? HELL NO, I beat the Queen, winner, winner chicken dinner. Well after that BIG WIN and a few more beverages of choice the little voice in my head noted it was time to pack it up, for the dreaded Monday was on its way. So off I went saying goodbye to Dutch and X! It was a really good day at Clubhouse 2.

 

It will be back to Clubhouse 1 this coming Sunday to mend fences with our gal pals there.
ATTA BOY – The ATTA BOY this week goes to a team member who cleverly enabled us to hide from a creepy guy Sunday by secretly changing venues! So to that special team member, way to be innovative, ATTA BOY!

 

COME ON MAN – Well she knows I love her but X gets the Come On Man this week for not paying off the bet we made once I won the basketball challenge, so to X, COME ON MAN!

MUSIC NEWS – I was at Dutch’s for a bit Sunday and he had his Judybox going with some good team tunes.

 

FOODY NEWS – Well Sunday at Clubhouse 2 Dutch, X and I had a Hot dog with Pub Cheese, Thumbs up on that. Dutch followed that up later by going with the 2-dollar burger which looked really good and Dutch did thoroughly enjoy.

 

PARTY NEWS – Eric’s annual party is coming, February 26, I am in charge of wings!

 

DYK (Did You Know) – The Movie ‘Wayne’s World’ was filmed in two weeks

 

Got a text from Eric, he did the double dip Sunday night, not sure if he was a lone soldier or not be he did Double Dip. Thanks for the info Eric!

    I do deserve the come on man.
    As for the prize, I’ll pay your tab one day soon! I didn’t want to do something that could never be undone. I like ya too much 🙂

    wow, all these comments, cooooooool!

    Hey X, there will be no paying my tab but I do appreciate the offer, it was all done for fun and man we had fun ! Love u!

    Was at Pitcher Day! Saw Liza , YES!!!!!

    Cushions aren’t fancy, they are comfy

    • Dutch | Jan 31, 2017 at 8:36 AM

      Ordered ONE with a cushion to test. I also found a place about a half a mile away going out of business so I am trying to talk them into selling me theirs (and they are nicer too)
      I started searching for a popcorn and slushy machine for the bar last night. We’ll see what happens.

      It’s ok X you can pay MY tab! Yaaaaay Thanks!

  • Frank | Jan 31, 2017 at 8:46 AM

    OMG that would be cool, slushy’s, popcorn and hot dogs!

    I spoke to Eric yesterday and as we chatted on we need to make your bar a monthly meeting place on a Funday. All that work you put into it, need to sue it!

    • Dutch | Feb 1, 2017 at 8:27 AM

      Not sure what a funday is (unless you mean a day off, I am not taking a day off a month to do that lol), but that is what it is there for. You guys are more than welcome to do so. Just pick the day (ie every third sunday or whatever) and I will make it happen.
      I don’t believe you spoke to Eric because I don’t know who that is on this blog. Does he exist? 🙂
      I am not suing my bar, but I will USE it 🙂
      See that little arrow on the top right? If you click that, it will respond to me instead of the entire article 🙂

  • X | Jan 31, 2017 at 6:43 PM

    Frank I’ll pay off the debt somehow!
    Dutch I will pay your tab when you beat me in basketball
    I want a slushy!

    • Dutch | Feb 1, 2017 at 8:27 AM

      Done and done… see you soon >:)

  • S1N | Feb 9, 2017 at 8:55 PM

    A lil late to the party but I need to make a Stuffed Pepper, Dutch style! Just sayin!

    A Funday is Sunday…but fun…duh
