Alligator Lizards in the air

The most important game of our lives is this Monday as we play Ventura Wu at 6:30pm at Vaughan Road Academy (not at Sunnybrook).

Why is it the most important game? Shut up, that's why.

Simon has guaranteed* that he will be coming to the game, so we have that to look forward to. We should also plan on hitting up Scallywags afterward since we're sort of in the neighbourhood (plus it's half-priced food).

This game kinda reminds me of a song by America...

Did you know that in this song the "Alligator Lizards" America is referring to are actually flatballs? It's a little known fact that America was into the ultimate scene, and one day while throwing the disc around, Dan Peek was trash-talking Dewey Bunnell's throwing into the wind: "You're throwing worse than an alligator, or a lizard...yeah, you suck worse than an Alligator Lizard."

Even though it didn't make any sense, somehow it stuck in their group, and they then referred to any swilly throws as "Alligator Lizards". When they wrote "Ventura Highway" later that year, that term fit in the song much better than "Frisbees".

*not a guarantee

Update from Simon:

Just had a babysitter drop out, so won't be able to join you until Olympia's home...but being within 5 mins of Scallywags and our first chance to use half price food, I'll be pushing for some post-game eating whatever happens!"

This is why I put the asterisk for Simon's guarantee. He's dangerously close to getting the Christian treatment on the blog.

Ladies and Gents,
It was a pleasure to be in your hallowed and undefeated company last night. Congratulations on all the correct decisions that were being made (Tien).

Simon, I've no idea what you're talking about.
