The Intramural 3-on-3 basketball tournament is underway at the Griddle Creek Gymnasium. The brackets have been drawn and all the first-round games have been played. If you missed any of the game action, here is the recap of the results:
Instant Domination vs Inferno of Vengeance
Inferno of Vengeance’s championship hopes went up in flames as they were easily defeated by Instant Domination. Brandi set a fast pace early for Instant Domination and Inferno of Vengeance could not catch their breath. Sean took advantage of a worn-down Inferno of Vengeance defense by making well over 60% of his shots. Hugo chipped in 8 rebounds in a winning effort while still having time to order a victory pizza.
Reflex Victory vs Triple Action
Reflex Victory played a great first half but ultimately fell victim to the three-point prowess of Triple Action in the second half. Team Reflex Victory simply did not have enough long-range shooters to keep pace with Triple Action. Fluffy dominated on the boards for Triple Action with 15 rebounds while DeCaffe went 6 of 9 from the three-point line to lead all scorers with 25 points.
Triple Jeopardy vs Police Academy
The Triple Jeopardy versus Police Academy game came down to the wire with Triple Jeopardy losing on a last-second shot. The game really could have gone to either team. Police Academy had a balanced offensive attack with Officer Long and Officer Cakeman each scoring 18 points. They needed every last one of those points to win.
Sunnyside Ballers vs Dukes of Danger
Sunnyside Ballers advances past Dukes of Danger in a game that ceased to be competitive once Duke of Danger’s best player pulled a hamstring and was forced to watch a large portion of the game from the bench. Christy led the way for Sunnyside Ballers with 18 points and 10 assists while Sonny led all players in personal fouls with 6. Sonny swears that he did not foul anybody the whole game. However, the bruises on the opponent say different.
Today is Pi day, to celebrate, the Sunnyside Diner is running a special on all of their famous pies. It is going to be a busy day.
What to do: Grab your purse or wallet and save lots of room for dessert.
Where to do it: If you’re in Griddle Creek, get down to the Sunnyside Diner as soon as possible before the line gets too long. If you’re anywhere else, unfortunately, your local diner will have to do.
Inside tip: Excuse Sonny’s lack of math skills, he’s still adjusting to daylight saving time.
Daylight savings time in Griddle Creek is here again. Time to set your clocks ahead an hour. Everybody loves when they gain an hour but not so much when they lose one.
What to do: Set all of your clocks ahead to the correct time as soon as possible. Don’t be the person that shows up late because they thought they had more time
Inside tip: Meals at the Diner may be a little late today, Sonny forgot to set his clock forward. They apologize for any inconvenience. On the plus side, the lunch menu will be available for an hour longer than usual.
It has been a fun season and now the time everybody at the Griddle Creek Gymnasium has been waiting for is almost here. Well not quite everybody, really just the ones that play in the 3-on-3 Intramural Basketball League.
What to do: There is nothing more you can do at this point. It’s the last game of the season before the playoffs begin.
Where to do it: All of the tournament games take place at the Griddle Creek Gymnasium. Check the board to find out which team you’re playing against.
Insider tip: Get some rest, eat your vitamins, and say your prayers because winning this tournament won’t be easy. Instant Domination is once again favored to win it all. Will any team be able to beat them? Hugo is so confident he is not even taking this last game seriously.
Fluffy is at the Sunnyside Diner ordering his favorite snack, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with extra peanut butter. Peanut butter and jelly appears on the hidden menu. Sonny was temporarily distracted and went a little overboard on the peanut butter.
Fluffy is back at it, once again he’s camped outside of the bookstore waiting for a new hardcopy release. Wyat remembers him from the last time he was camped out there. The whole process makes no sense to him whatsoever. What Wyat doesn’t understand is Fluffy actually enjoys camping out in front of the bookstore. It is more about the experience to him than the actual book. He gets to feel like a kid again and he loves to talk to all of the people that walk past. Being at the front of the line is just a bonus.
