Falls is near but summer in Griddle Creek is not over yet. The weather is still nice enough to shoot some hoops outside. If you’re in town today get out and enjoy it.

Bring your “A” Game!

Design Bracketology

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.

Design Pi Day

Daylight Saving Time!

Design Daylight Savings

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.
