RETURN OF A ZOMBIE

The Wolves arrived at the Las Vegas Sectional late Sunday and after grabbing a bite and succumbing to our BJ craving for a bit .. requested our luggage be sent to the room. I immediately set up our Laptop and iPad (God-Forbid we could survive five days without them) and after unpacking .. settled in for a much needed snooze! 

We played with marvelous teammates, Dennis Scholl and David Lim in the Monday/ Tuesday Knockout .. and after a delightful ending .. retired to a luscious dinner at Oscar’s before hitting the hay. We had only arrived forty-eight hours prior though it felt like an eternity. The only consolation for octogenarians is .. their alternative is unquestionably worse (and usually occurs sooner).   We finished somewhere in the middle Wednesday in a relatively small field.

Our Thursday/Friday teammates were Bobby’s long time friend, COLBY VERNAY from Illinois and his local partner, GEORGE MATTOS.  It was delightful to see Colby again after a few years and meet his charmingly entertaining partner. By some miracle, our quartet won both Stratified Team Games on Thursday though I was continuing to drag my weary bones from table to table (reminiscent of the ancient song “The Old Gray Mare”).

However, this shaggy dog story IS NOT about OUR three wins .. but my confession .. had I played better on Friday .. COLBY and GEORGE WOULD HAVE SWEPT THE ENTIRE LV SECTIONAL (as they already had FOUR WINS) .. BUT by Friday I was bleary eyed. It was a great learning experience for me (especially at the end of a tournament) to accept the realization that a much needed good third pair is necessary!

Hats off to very well deserving teammates for an incredible showing)!!!!!

Three victories sound good to me. Don’t be so hard on yourself!
