GRB punched the time clock early Saturday to head over to outdoor court at the Donaldson-Chesnut-Spruill-Redfield-Major Dunwoody
Danny rolled up in the Lemonade Days Limo, coat slung over his shoulder ever so slightly, sipping sweet tea mixed with a little Louisiana moon shine. "I feel good about tonight's game. I want to bring back glory to District 2, and to the city at large."
Two street-ballers, one form Chicago, the other from the streets of Ruston, Louisiana. The outdoor court at the FarmHouse Jr. played into Ross' favor. The Dunwooy Red Hat Women's Club, the DPT posse, the bridge players of Greater Dunwoody, and many outed tournament members were on the Ross sideline. "Even though he beat me last round, I gotta pull for Danny911," said StayHarris. Heyward, Danny's last opponent, commented, "If anyone can get this CAD thing behind us, it's Danny911Ross. Plus, I'd like to see that Music Hall of Fame issue come back up."
One fan base Danny911 thought was a lock was the Lemonade Days crew. After all, Danny911 helped put that teen-fest on the map. While some of the Lemonade Days execs with the ironed T-shirts were in Danny's corner, every one of the workers, aka the Carny Crowd, were pulling for GRB. "It's common knowledge among us Carny folk that GRB is one of us. Hell, I heard he ran Big Eli for Modern Midways for 10 season in a row." "GRB is legend on the '30', Lincoln Highway. The guy can call 'em in."
It was quite the sight to look over behind GRB's bench and see so many living legends all in one place: Chip, I'm Just Sayin', TheOther Dunwoody, DP Groupie, SDOC, Farmer Bob, all rallying behind Blogger League representative GRB. In the end GaryRayBetz pulled out the victory, advancing to the March City Manager Madness final game.
Norb versus Captain Kingsley
It seemed as nearly every Kingsley student held off leaving for Spring Break until this game ended. "We love captain Kingsley," gleamed a young first grader. The staff of Kingsley also showed up, as did a rolling keg of Sweetwater, apparently from the Kingsley Swim & Tennis social fund. "If you do the research, the Captain Kingsley costume has its roots in a socialist and/or communist territory," said Norb, the SaveDunwoodyPac8 representative. "It's quite obvious the red color in his costume is the same hue as the red in China. And that blue is identical to the United Nations blue color. These kids are being brainwashed and would be better served home-schooled."
Prior to the game a huge announcement was made regarding Captain Kingsley. Capt. K added a partner, Princess Comet. See HERE.
"Twice the fun, twice the dedication," said captain Kinglsey. "The only thing better than one city manager is two city managers."
Norb just shrugged it off. "Us SaveDunwoody folks have constantly faced harsh opposition, and we still prevail, defeating the establishment. With MengHouseTony back to Connecticut, I am back in full command here. Please be sure to read my blog, linked on the right side column at the fine DunwoodyTalk blog."
In a battle of leaders, it was Team/Captain Kinglsey edging out Norb. "Don't worry about me, I'll still be around," said Norb.
Captain Kingsley did a victory walk with Princess Comet, well ahead of the scheduled Wednesday walk. "One more person to defeat, and this city is MINE!"
The championship game will have a special guest referee in Dick Williams. Dick was a high school referee for many years here in Georgia. "Like in print, I am fair and unbiased on the court. Even when I reffed a St Pius game, I refrained from giving them too many good calls.
