The Boston team of Jarrett, Bri and Nate took 3rd place at the Flour City Invite last weekend. They managed to overcome a bunch of tough teams, one of which got a bit surly with Jarrett over an alleged t-bone. Bri got the much deserved female MVP award, winning a lovely top tube cover. The Laurel, Howl and Jon team got knocked out by a bunch of drunk Canadians who fancied the wrist shot. Overall a fun experience. Stay tuned for info on our upcoming 2 on 2 tournament!
We have two teams representing Boston at the Flour City Invitational in Rochester, New York. One team is all brains, the other, all brawn. I predict double first place if the contest is to determine whose city’s players are the most awe inspiring. Photos will be posted upon our victorious return to the city.
