Fools Fest 33 has officially been declared a success. Here's a quick rundown of what happend:
-Fresh new Zontal alums (Brucie, Glassman, Daktor to name a few) took some current Zs out on Mass Thursday night. I personally woke up in my roommates bed. Naked. Wreaking of piss. Great primer for the weekend.
-Everyone met up Friday night at Leeroy's tavern, where the Long Island Iced Teas started to FLOW. One thing was for sure: there was more dude on dude action that night than anything else. Zontals might be getting a little too comfortable with each other nowadays...
-Saturday games started at 1030, and the Z Alums started things off right. 9 guys participated in that first game, with Kilmer leading the charge. They lost that first one. The alums then rattle off two more wins, and added 20 more guys to the roster, with momentum going into the much anticipated Current/Alumni game. They started off hot with easy scores, but the youngbloods made a charge of their own towards the end of the game. Valley "How's my hair?" Renshaw killed all momentum with a 30 yard crossfield hammer that was caught one handed by Barrett "Easy does it" Davis for the score.
-After young Nickie J threw up into his disc, and 1 and done future Zontal Alumni Super Hero Zac Beasley finished his in 25.6 seconds, we headed off to the newly renovated Abe and Jake's, where things got turnt. UP. Four random girls simultaneously throwing up on the dance floor is in contention for highlight of the night. That, or a Betty doing a handstand in a dress, and flashing everyone her not yet legal junk.
Fools Fest was great. Next year will be even greater. Plans are in motion to reserve the entire youth complex, so that the men's and women's divisions will be located at the same spot. Abe and Jake's is by far the best part spot in Lawrence now, so we will get that on that lock again. Set aside Final Four weekend next year so you don't miss out on what could be the greatest Fools of all time.
Sectionals for the Young Zs is this weekend in Little Rock, AR. The Ozarks section has been awarded 7 bids to Regionals, so the Zs really have to shit their pants to not make it. Veteran coach Joe Nickels had this to say about the upcoming sectionals tournament:
"Yeah, the boys look good. They got a real shot at winning the Section. The offense can score consistently, the D just needs to step up and make plays. If they do that, they can be competitive with anybody."
If you're still connected to the zontals-all google group, it would great to hear some support from ZontalNation going into this weekend. Us young Zontals love to hear glory stories about winning huge games and Z legends making incredible plays. If you have a story you'd like to share, please do so on email@example.com!
Thanks for the support! We'll let you know how Sectionals goes!
What's up ZNation,
Sorry for the lack of posts. Ready for an intense Zupdate?
Zontal 2014 thus far:
-Went to University of Kentucky in February. The Zontals were given the respect they deserved, being placed as the number 2 overall seed in the tourney. The pool was swept, ending with an intense win over Oberlin College on Saturday. The boys saw zone D for the first time on Sunday, and couldn't break through, losing our first game on Sunday to UNC-Ashville. We ended up placing 9th in the tourney.
-March 15/16 we went to Austin, TX for Centex. We were put in the open division this year instead of the invite, and were placed as the number 2 seed. Trinity woke us up with a universe loss to start Saturday morning, and it was only up from there. The Zs swept the rest of Saturday, and rolled into the finals on Sunday with wins over Midwestern State and Baylor. We shook Oklahoma early in the finals, but extreme winds kept us from chasing down a few breaks the rest of game. Zontals finished 2nd in the Open division, losing in the championship 11-7.
-This upcoming weekend we head to Chicago for the huge Chicago Invite. We're currently 4th in the 2nd power pool, and we're hoping to turn some heads as we plan on skull crushing fools through Sunday.
Zontal Legends JoeNick, Valley Renshaw, and newly titled legend Brett Hidaka are helping with the coaching this year. It's safe to say their presence has fueled our energy going into this season.
Become friends with Zontal Daniel Gilroy and check out our photos from the past two tournaments. Some of the current Zs were getting TURNT UP!
Fools Fest 33 is fast approaching! It's gonna be a great time, and there's going to be a TON of young new Zontals that could benefit from legendary wiZdom. Come to Larry and party your asses off! We'll have the current Zontal swag for sale; don't miss out on these amazing jerseys.
Zontal Player Profile:
Zach "Meat Man" Hunter, Senior, #2
Meat Man pretending like he knows what he's doing
This is Meats third and final year as a Zontal. Known for his wicked athleticism, he's a cutter you don't want to fuck with. Also known as probably the weirdest kid on the planet, you will find him sporing a flat top and goofy smile as he slices up fresh meats at Dillon's.
New Zontal Profile:
Will "Smolder" Mason, Sophomore, #21
Smolder sporting "Blue Steel" as he steal some cookies
Although he was voted cutest Zontal by the Betty's, looks can be deceiving. Smolder can outrun Valley Renshaw's ego, and can jump over Gary Zontal's Funhouse. He's learning faster than light travels. Come out to Fools and meet Mr. Smolder.
