NYCFHC Men v Greenwich – 10th March 2013
By DoD – Mark “Bungle” Brazier
Greenwich 1s are always a tough prospect with quality smattered all around. But with new boys Darbon and Riches in the NYCFHC fold, we surely had the upper hand with an embarrassment of Riches!! With early breaking news that Towner was helicoptering in from JFK to play the game, things were really looking up.
Despite early sustained pressure from NYCFHC there was a clear inability to convert this into goals with Gits and Toddy playing ‘who-can-produce-the-most-
Anyway, back to the hockey; NYCFHC 3-1 up at halftime. A lapse in defense let Greenwich back to 3-2. FINAL score 4-2. Winner winner, chicken dinner. With another ‘W’ in his top pocket Towner hurried off to be choppered out of there to take his private jet back to California for some important business (an aside, if anyone is looking for stock tips, you won’t get far wrong with Pernod Ricard (ticker = RI), with Towner basically at the helm of their global operations, the sky is the limit).
Then to the voting – Buke took MOM for a quite dominating display at the back and producing some wonderful closing-down-stay-big Shmeichel-esque saves. Then onto DOD- surely one of Toddy or Gits had this sewn up for their airshot shenanigans. Gits up first (6 votes), with Toddy up next surely Bungle would come in a distant 3rd. But no, with a Gits sleight of tongue that only one of the top Wall Street fixed income brokers could achieve, Bungle was suddenly put up to vote, and with a Gittins whisper campaign to rival that of the 2012 ‘Buke for NEFHA presidency’ success, Bungle limped home to orange visor wearing glory with 7 votes. Damn you Gittins!
