Foggy Bottom Indoor Division
A big congratulations to Let Teddy Bocce who won three games yesterday to become the fall 2012 Foggy Bottom champions! Yes, that is my team, and no, it is not illegal for black shirts to win. We don't show up each week for our health, you know! And if it makes you feel any better, this is my first bocce championship in 5 years of playing this sport. And, most likely, the last, so I'll enjoy it while I can!! Let Teddy Bocce will get to donate $250 to charity. Tis the season!
Since first is the worst, and second is the best, a big congratulations to the runners up, Deboccery! Second was a theme for Deboccery last night, as they also came in that position in the Peroni ticket contest. Terms of Enrampagement sipped past them by two pitchers to win $300 to The Hamilton. Enjoy!
A huge thank you to the black shirts that made this season possible: Kristin, Neal, and Anna. This division manager will miss you!

Halloween Week Winners!
'Ghould' work to all of those teams who dressed up for Halloween! Many outfits caught the black shirts' attention, but only a few teams could win. Congratulations to Ball Stars who won 1st place & $50 to McFadden's for dressing as Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs! That Snow White looked so boo-tiful! Our second place team & $25 gift card recipients, Mazza Balls, also represented well with their Price is Right interpretation. Eat your heart out, Bob Barker! We also loved the effort (well, and the color), of Barack OBocce's Blue Man Group, and will hook them up with $25 to McFadden's as well. Honorable mentions (those outfits that earned our respect, but not so much a gift card) include The El MariBocces, the Beanie Babies & Operation game of Ball Me Maybe, and Mr. McGibblets of The League.
