WEEK #2 – MATCHES OF THE WEEK
Match #1 - Jim “Guinea Slayer” Hunter v. Gus Delfarno – Jim Hunter’s streak of not losing to a league member of Italian heritage is still intact. Last week Hunter and newcomer, Mark Zito, waltzed to a 5 point tie. Apparently, the Slayer couldn’t entice Zito into drinking enough alcohol to severely affect his game and turn the match in Hunter’s favor. After the match, Hunter immediately sent a crew of old school teamsters to Steve Richtarik’s palatial estate in Cranston in order to “coax” a more favorable handicap for this week from our own handicap guru. This would appear to be a problem for newcomer, Gus Delfarno, in this week’s match. Gus, who spanked league namesake, John “G-string” Graham last week (though some say Graham enjoyed the spanking as much as he hated losing), has already begun to downplay his quick start by ”begging” all who could read, that last week’s results were an aberration. Look for league handicap guru, Steve Richtarik, to take some liberties with Delfarno’s virgin handicap in this week’s match. We are not sure whether Richtarik will mess with Gus’ handicap because of last week’s play or because of the visit that was paid to his home by Hunter’s boys. Look for Steve Richtarik and ask him this week. He will be the guy with the bandage on his head who is limping around the course.
Match #2 – Bob Moretti v. Ernie Panos - The quiet and deliberate, Bob Moretti, will face off against newly minted “hole in one king”, Ernie Panos. Ernie, who has recently spent a considerable amount of time at Gelly’s Golf School, appears to have a more mature outlook to his game. The question here is whether Bob can bring out the “old” Ernie in this week’s match where Ernie was not averse to uttering a string of expletives that would make a Marine blush while firing his club into the turf in an attempt to aerate the ground at his feet . Also, rumors are also swirling that “Belly’s”, Bill Iannotti’s golf school, has been attempting to recruit Ernie away from Gelly’s Golf School. We will see if Ernie is sporting his “Gelly” shirt this week. One of our reporters overheard Ernie griping that he is the one who has put Gelly’s on the map, not vice versa and that if he is expected to stay in the Gelly camp, he will need yet another Gelly’s shirt.
