Went out to play pool tonight and although we’re “in transition” at the moment we are between venues after Steventons closed and we are struggling to hold the team together during this period and do not have enough players at the moment and every week we play wild cards which are allowing the other team to pick from our team a player they think they have the best chance of beating…
‘No-one likes us’ because we play to the rules and tonight we did not declare we were short of players before the start of the game which contravenes rule 3.4 of the MADPL Constitution which I accept, and at 4 – 2 up tonight I\we said we had one more player on his way but that’s it, and after questioning whether that is in line with the rules I accepted unreservedly that they were correct shook the captains hand and left the venue!
It makes me smile that we die by the rules but as we left their team were saying “is that it?” and I was thinking yep that’s it and left! The last thing I want is to sit spending money in their pub discussing how right it is that I accept that they have ended the night so early on a technicality?
We live by the rules and will die by them occasionally, accept it and move on and only hang around to discuss them when you’re at home and your landlord profits from long drawn out pontificating by everyone in the room who thinks they’re right!
Match score 4 all and qualification for the group stages achieved, so who gives a shit I get to go home and hand poorly mommy chocolate with nuts in as requested by text earlier in the evening to aid recovery from the virus that slayed her today.
