Playoff Results: Dan “Pretty Boy” DeQuattro and his point machine partner, Garry Reilly, cruised to a playoff victory over the beleaguered Al Cotoia. Due to self appointed playoff commissioner, Bill Gelsomino’s crazy playoff formula, Cotoia was placed at a significant disadvantage in the finals when he had to play without his partner, Rick Guerra. Cotoia and Guerra who each took back to back two week trips to Italy causing the shorthanded team, were each heard to voice their complaints to Gelsomino in Italian and with a final one fingered salute hand gesture. For their playoff victory, each of the victors have won a personalized prize. “Pretty Boy” has won a year of free electrolosis and waxing at Francesco’s Salon in Johnston, RI. Francesco has indicated that he will personally apply the hot wax to Dan’s delicate areas. Garry, on the other hand, in keeping with his long held contention that the Thong League is screwing him is getting an empty envelope for his efforts.
