Retro Week once again provided us with the opportunity to pay tribute to the game styles of the past and also see some really old jerseys. Teams did take advantage of the ability to choose some different games in the gym, which provided the crowd with some entertainment, most notably the awesome faceshots in corners.
A notable highlight came on the first night of Retro Week in a marquee matchup between 4-5 Kelsey and Main Kelsey. In one of the most exciting games of Cones in recent memory, MainK was about to be taken down from eliminations until VP Kelsey Scotty Veronelly kobe’d the half court shot out of nowhere and brought all of MainK’s players back on. The mass excitement and turning of the tables didn’t last long however as 4-5K was able to take out the cones and eventually won it after a ball bouncing off the back wall took out the last cone.

Congratulations also goes out to 4-5 Kelsey for winning the Oldest Jersey Contest. A few teams had jerseys from the ’04-’05 season but 4-5 Kelsey had two!
As we’ve previously mentioned, Retro Week is upon us very soon. Since not even I am old enough to have played these games (Saadiq can’t say the same :p), you probably have no idea how to play any of the retro styles! Lucky for you, we’ve got a pretty well documented history. Click on the Link below to see the rules. If you are unsure of any of the rules, ask your liaison. If your liaison doesn’t know, we have an LDLPA meeting tonight that they can ask us.
Halloween may have been yesterday but that won’t stop the LDL!
Thanks to a very generous donation from Aramark, the LDL is reintroducing the “Monster of the Game”. Starting in week 7, after each game, the team captains shall pick a player from the opposing team that they think is deserving of the recognition.
Whether it be a beastly doctor kill, monstrous 3 ball shag, or even just an all around great display of the four pillars, you could be in line for a Monster of the Game and a free can of Monster Energy Drink!
We have something pretty cool to announce today. Our Web and Network Administrator, the lovely Brennan Murphy, has created a feature in our website that lets head referees update scores for their games, AS THE GAME IS IN PROGRESS!! What does this mean for you? The website will always be up to the minute with all the standings, scores and +/- so that you don’t have to try and guess where you sit in the middle of the week, you’ll be able to always see it. That’s all for today!

It is now week 5, which means we are almost 1/3 the way through the season! Pretty crazy to think about hey? This also implies that the rules are going to be enforced a little more strictly now. Head Referees will be more likely to dock teams for poor side-reffing, so be the side ref that you would want to ref your games.
There has also been some names that have came my way about cheating. It could very well be yours, so make sure to be on your best behavior, since scouting for All-Stars (yeah, I went there) begins alot sooner than one would expect.
In the words of a predecessor; keep your damn heads up out there,
