. . . . but we don’t want the Irish!!

It was Long Island’s turn to host the Olde Boy Palooza.  But L.I. Ralph was not there!!  My Mom always used to say that apple pie without cheese is like a hug without a squeeze.  This was a very similar situation, but I am too lazy to think of a word that rhymes with Ralph,…

Morris Masters Felled by Canadian Goose Excrement…Lots of It

The Harvard of New Jersey left our captain unprepared.  Oh, he may have learned the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow (both African AND European), but his miscalculation of the incubation period of cryptosporidiosis (“crypto”) proved to be the undoing of the Morris Masters on that fateful Saturday in Bayonne, NJ.  Morris, you see, had…

Eli’s Manning the Pitch

In the shadow of the venerable olde Yale Bowl, just a Misty Mountain Hop, skip and a jump down I-91 from the Meriden YMCA camp, the Greys would host the opening palooza of the Fall 2018 season. A decent number of Masters signed up to battle the I-95 traffic to New Haven, but after Wankers…

Ruggers from all over the world gathered to celebrate the date on which Mrs. O’Herlihy dramatically improved the trajectory of Morris’ own Cal O’Herlihy’s life by promising to be with him through the best and worst of times.  The latter was exemplified by the performance of the Motley crew with which Cal and several other…

Why Is My Earwax Black?

September 8, 2016

WHY IS MY EARWAX BLACK? Going to work this week, I took out my earbuds when I got to the Port Authority, and discovered they were not a golden brown, but a dull black.  Vestiges of our swamp-fest 10 days earlier.  The pitch was so sloppy that the mud got everywhere.  I heard an anecdotal…

Lions Win 2!!!

September 8, 2016

LIONS WIN 2!!! Well, it was the Village Lions and not the Morris Lions, but why quibble over details.  For the 2.5 times out of 3, Papi was correct.  With the great Oyster Bay to our right, Long Island Sound to our left, we would kick off on a sun splattered field nestled onto a…

Masters Gain First Victory of the Season!

September 8, 2016

MASTERS GAIN FIRST VICTORY OF THE SEASON! First and foremost, I would like to state that we did NOT play Montclair.  Maybe it’s me, but when Montclair states that “Morris Sucks”, I take it to mean they do not like our Morris County values. Papi’s weather prediction was spot-on. The weather WAS perfect for rugby. …
