The 2019 LAEFL regular season came to an end Saturday. July 13. If this had been on a Friday it would have made a lot more sense.
Our meeting place was closed without notice. 3 of our coaches had to call out due to a variety of “what else can happen” reasons. But there were games played Saturday in spite of all the other adventures we experienced.
49ers vs Vikings : If he had not already made a statement, he would have made one Saturday. He is #40 Kleinsasser. From the opening kickoff, a 95 yd TD, to the last score, a 43 yard TD (his 4th), it was Kleinsasser’s day. The 9ers had no answers. Although if the rest of the defense had taken #42 Lott’s example, it may have ended differently. But one man does not stop a train when he’s the only one on the tracks. Vikings take this 37-19.
Browns vs Bills: As part of the “what else can happen” Saturday, the Browns were left trying to find their defense which got caught in Philly due to hurricane warnings. They were able to hitch a ride and after a slight delay showed up ready to play. And play they did. They gave the Bills all they could handle. #34 Thurman was held in check running but was able to break a kick return 81 yards which set his 9 yd TD for the first score of the game. While the Browns “D” showed up, their offense did not. Could have been the anxiety of not having the “D” there on time. The offense gave up a safety and missed almost all his passes. Anxiety…. I don’t know but the offense clearly let the defense down. Meanwile the Bills were patient and happy with a 10 point lead which played out the rest of the game, bringing back to Buffalo a 10-0 win.
Saturday the 13th or was it really Friday the 13th……
