The Chaos Bay Pacters v The Sewer Suckers (2 teams whose names clearly give away their races) started a Ranked game tonight. Initially there was a crowd, which peaked at a mighty 5!! This soon dropped off and boy did they miss HISTORY MADE!!!!! (nearly)
The game followed a normal-ish pattern for 2 such teams with CBP receiving first and with a lot of bash and grind stalling for an 8 turn touchdown (after a bit of botheration from the Rats).
Rats did there part, including badly hurting a Mino that was Tenticalising 3 rats at the edge of the pitch.(Tenticalising may not actually be a word, and whether it is or isn't he promises he wasn't being rude)
The Apo came on and proudly attended to the ruffed up Cow... and promptly killed him.The Coach shook his head and said "Let's pretend that didn't happen".
Rats received and promptly scored a 1TTD.
2nd half started and Rats were losing more and more err Rats each turn, so elected to score quickly and cross their fingers (can Rats cross their fingers?). With Rat blood covering much of the pitch 5 Marauders slowly shepherded the ball over the line for a turn 16 TD, wary of not giving the Rats another chance of a 1TTD.
2-2 final whistle, game over... "Where's the HISTORY MADE!!!!! (nearly)" I hear you cry!
Well EXACTLY both Coaches were so caught up in a thoroughly entertaining and BLOODY (emphasised for a reason) encounter we missed a truly (nearly) unique (nearly) performance (nearly) from "Mr (pacifist) Fox."
(DISCLAIMER: I have done zero research in validating the magnitude/uniqueness/history making potential (nearly) ness of this feat, so there... It is my blog though so I can say anything I want!!)
(DISCLAIMER: I can't actually say "anything I want" because Harvestmouse reads EVERYTHING and locks stuff).
