Big Ben clocks the competition

Written by

In our second or third season, Dan Burgess observed that he got his best results when he wasn't expecting to play. Ben DiPaola will second that.

On Friday, Mike Morrison announced that he had to bail on Game No. 202, scheduled for Saturday at John Gramila's home in Humboldt Park, due to a conflict. The first standby I called that night was DiPaola.

"If it could be filled by someone else, that would be good, but I can make it otherwise," he said reluctantly.

A 200-game event

Written by

In our first seven-plus years and 199 games of play, our club established a number of ironclad truisms. For example:

  • Never be the last player to stab Paul Pignotti.
  • Kevin O'Kelly is a loose cannon.
  • If Greg Duenow sends you a link, don't click it.
  • Nate Cockerill doesn't roll to board tops, he oozes to them.
  • When playing with Ted McClelland, keep your friends close and your drink covered.

Dan Burgess, Master of the House

Written by
Master of the house, keeper of the zoo
Ready to relieve 'em of a sou or two
Watering the wine, making up the weight
Pickin' up their knick-knacks when they can't see straight
Everybody loves a landlord
Everybody's bosom friend
I do whatever pleases
Jesus! Won't I bleed 'em in the end!

'Twas the day before New Year's

'Twas the day before New Year's,
