The Goomba Invitational

This is where GNN tried to schedule the 2010 Goomba Invitational. This resort has a beautful hotel, professional golf course, casino and cheap cigarettes.

Unfortunately the address could not fit on any envelope smaller than a mini-van and the project was scrapped.

And it didn't help that TSA confiscated my souvenir NIPMUC cap as "hate speech".

BTW, the Nickie Goomba 4th Annual Bocce Ball Tournament will be held again in Saratoga Springs, NY, August 7th & 8th I regret that, this year, Woodsterman and LL will not be attending. Their slap fight in the hot tub led to a battle of restraining orders that prevent each of them from being within 500 miles of one another.

I refuse to point fingers but, because of the actions of someone who, last year, just pushed things a little too far (Rhod), the motel has forced me to post a bond insuring that pants will be worn by all bocce players during competitions.

Also, I've just learned that that DC and Trestin have added a ringer to this year's team... NFL first round draft choice JaMarcus Russell will be joining their Bocce Boys team. The purple drank is gonna flow, lads.

LL and Odie have restraining orders? Who on Earth will I have lunch with the next time they're both in town!

I'll be there but i'm not rooming with The Kid again. He watches TV constantly and he fed quarters into that Magic Fingers© machine like it was a slot machine.

How about this year having the golf tournament anywhere but that place in Arkansas. Leave it to Nick to find a 15 hole golf course with grass on only 4 holes.

Nickie Goomba said...

Opie... Eat alone. You betta off.

Nickie Goomba said...

Zio... I'll move the tournament when I can find another place that offers anything even comparable to their "World Famous Bottomless Basket of Tater Tots" for only two bucks!

LL said...

I'll be there (wherever it's held) in violation of court order, simply to participate in the traditional Goomba ancient Egypt costume, pugil stick/king-of-the-hill contest. They may take me off in chains, but not before I make a respectable accounting of myself. Last time, dressed as a mummy, I found myself unwinding. Yes, Odie won, but only because that Cleopatra costume gave him much more freedom of movement.

have good news and bad news, first the good news.

I just received a telegraph from the resort. They are changing their name to Lake Lady GauggggGauggggBeGone so we can do this. The invitations are being printed as we speak.

Now the bad. Lake Lady GauggggGauggggBeGone Resort is experiencing an infestation of ground hogs. There are so many holes in the Bocce Tournament Grounds that Charlie Sheen married it last night. Resort personnel are trying their very best to convert the back nine to Regulation Bocce before the Spring.

More as the situation develops...

LL is just jealous he can't get away with wearing a "Cleopatra" costume without getting laughter from the onlookers. It breaks his train of thought and he thinks he's playing "hide the ball" instead. It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for all the bocce balls disappearing.

I think LL and I can honor a truce for lunch with you, Opie. We'll be OK as long as there are no bucce balls and skirts on the guys allowed. I will miss the coolness though.

I'll be at this years event, Nickie. Trust me, no one will recognize me. I'll wear my revealing blue outfit with my traditional beehive hairdo. You remember the outfit, don't you Nickie?

What's wrong with Sumo atire, Nick? Mine was a bit steamy, I admit.

Anyway, Nipmucian naming conventions are charming. Run-on words are also difficult.

I think "Webster Mass" is more curious. Isn't it what LL cut off DC's neck?

Rhod said...

Odie, wear your pale blue cape and boomerang-pattern clam diggers.

Nickie Goomba said...

LL... Odie's costume was much too revealing. Next time, more costume and less asp.

Nickie Goomba said...

Sig... Check to see if there's a Turkish Bath nearby.

Nickie Goomba said...

Woody... A restraining order is not a suggestion. 500 miles is 500 miles.

Nickie Goomba said...

Sumo attire?? Is that what you're calling it, Rhod. Since when does "sumo attire" include a paisley waistcoat and chaps?

And that thing LL cut off DC's neck was a White Castle slider on which DC had fallen asleep following our well-lubricated awards dinner.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Nickie, it sounds like LL and I will have to resort to being our usual sneaky selves.
