Damn You Blocker


I don’t know about you, but throughout my life there have been people - no, let’s be fair, friends - who you know are just that little inferior to you. You know the ones, those who you always beat in tennis, or who has the slightly less attractive job, or who you always invite along to the party because, well it is just the right thing to do. Then one day…

One day you realise that it is you who is the less fortunate. Somewhere along the line, sometime when you were basking in your self-acclamation, you were surpassed. You break into that cold sweat when you realise your lack of importance. If you are a shallow person, you instantly take a dislike to the once inferior and now superior friend. But geez, you have to be of weak moral fibre to take that stance.

I don’t like Blocker. He has had his time in the sun. He has waged war in the DuFFle Finals and won multiple premierships back when dinosaurs roamed the earth. You’d think he would just fly his Willsie Aeroplane off to wherever Amelia Earhart didn’t plan to go. But no. Blocker has to flaunt his prowess over us all. No-one has scored more points this season than the incumbents of the Blockerdrome and the ever plucky Hooley Dooleys were left bereft once the Willsie Air Machine destroyed their troop.

The Buccaneers and Ingredients have lost less games than WillsieAir but you’d have to think that these front-runners are very much looking over their shoulders. Alvin’s team did enough to demoralise the fighting Knights and Cookie was only just better than the resurgent Moptop. Neither of these top teams impressed.

By golly is FD1016 blessed. She left her best player out of the selected team, yet the Rashers managed to defeat the, luckily for her, undermanned Chatanooga Central Purple Pounders. But not all of our contests were one-sided. The Colonel outscored the equally impressive Jokers and Biz also had a high-scoring match against Slammo where, much to his chagrin, the Superstars came up just short.

In the other games, the Fungi picked up their first win of the season against the, now embarrassed, El Primero, Nelson was way to good for Straddo and the Collusions were demolished by PK’s Knight Riders.

Full salute for writing about my premierships being when dinosaurs ruled the earth. I wish I could use that on Eagles supporters but the jammy bastards fluked the damn thing last year.

Hg, I like you. But you forgot the italics for "I don’t like Blocker. He has had his time in the sun", surely

Already 3 games out of the 8, this season sucks.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

Blocker you are way overestimating the tensile strength of my morale fibre; very low Young’s modulus.
