First I have to give thanks to Patrick, a great player and an amazing painter. I feel we both was tired, it was a long day at work and things have been stressful for me over the past few days with my wife’s dad having surgery and my wife not feeling so great herself with the slow progress of “modern medicine” frustrates me sometimes. Honestly, I feel drained at times but I find a moment to recharge and pull some reserve that keeps me going. I know love is one of those factors….
I had 13k in Fans and Patrick got 14k in fans in attendance. We rolled for weather which was normal and picked our special cards that were the league rule (each player got 100k in cards, since Patrick was in the finals last year he got a bonus free draw). I won the dice off and opted to be kicked to.
This first half was just strange; I kept pushing many of his men around for the first few turns. I snagged the ball and ran started to run it up the field. Near the end zone, Patrick was able to take me down, take the ball and threw one of his cards in play that allowed him to punt the ball down the field! ARG! I had to run my thrower back along with a Blitzer racing his frogs from getting to the ball first. I was able to grab the ball, throw a long pass and the game was on again. I was knocked down again, the ball changed hands and I was able to score a touchdown finally after some luck went in my favor. We wrapped up the first half letting him wail on me for a turn that didn’t inflict much damage.
The second half I kicked off to him again and we went back and forth again with the ball. I was able to knock the ball out onto the field and grabbed it again. Another long pass by a Blitzer this time (the first was by a thrower) and another success! WHOOO! We managed to run the ball up the field to score again. When we reset it was about halfway through the second half and Patrick was able to score as things was starting to fall into place for him when it came to luck. The only bad thing was it was a bit late in the game to make a huge difference. I threw one last pass with my thrower to get another CP in right near the end of the game.
The game ended with a 2-1 in favor of the Mork’s Mangler's taking the win home. I rolled my Fan Factor and got another boost to a 7. Rolled a 6 for income bringing in 70k and setting me up with 170k in the bank that should be going into the playoffs with. One Blitzer got a new skill (Guard) and one of my Black Orcs finally got BLOCK! 3 more to go and a lone lineman that I just bought. I have to check with the report to see which Blitzer scored the second time to see if there are any other SPP rolls I need to make. Only one Blitzer it would affect and I don’t think he was the one to score.
The boyz in blue tallied 3 CPs, 2 Casualties and two TDs. The Slann managed to get one CP and 1 TD in with no injuries on their side.
Below are some pictures of the game, of Patrick and his amazing Slann (frog) team!

While not finished, what he has done is AMAZING!
A good shot one one of his linemen.
