STILL SHUTDOWN-1 YEAR LATER

It’s February 2021 and I never thought we’d still be in Covid-19 protocol one year later but here we are. As most of the sports world have started and finished their respective seasons. Los Angeles has two new champions in baseball and basketball. Tampa Bay has 2 new champions in hockey and football. The LAEFL are still trying to finish their 20th anniversary season of 2020.

Although the season is in suspended mode, the LAEFL coaches have not been sitting on the sidelines. Each coach has spent this “off” season adding players to their squads, building new squads, tightening up their college squads and tweaking their teams for a more powerful and explosive presence when the league does continue play. From hearing all the chatter, these coaches are ready to break out of their respective shel look s and crack some serious plastic among other things.

This reporter has been covering the game for many years and this whole Covid-19 thing is a first in history situation. Like the 45th president, I thought it would be over long before now. But unlike the 45th president, I’m glad he didn’t make it to 2021. I digress. When the 2020 season does resume, I expect a season of delayed joy to explode on the field as each coach wants the other coach to pay for the delay they none of the coaches could have prevented. Until that happens, get ready coaches cause that time is coming. Stay safe and we’ll see you at the vibrating field to rumble.

December 1, 2020

As the Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc on the LAEFL’S 20th season, the LAEFL coaches are hanging in there to protect themselves and their families. Some of the coaches’ families have been infected and have recovered. Everyone is being cautious for everyone else. October was the last gathering for 4 of the coaches and big fun was had. Since then coaches have been working on their main squads and their secondary squads. Coaches are getting extra figures to prepare all their squads for competition when the next opportunity arise.

Thanksgiving was truly a time of thanks as we were all grateful for our health and having family around to show love and appreciation. December is another month to be thankful as we celebrate Christmas and a time of showing love to those we love.

In the meantime we prep and paint and base up our teams to be ready to crack plastic to those willing to take the field with all the necessary PPE available to protect ourselves and those we face across the vibrating board.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS COACHES to you and your families.

SHOWDOWN IN SAN DIEGO

While the LAEFL, like most of California, are abiding by the CDC rules for gathering we are still having games in small groups. Next game is in San Diego where the Texans, Vikings, Browns and 49ers are looking to crack plastic on 10/10. Since these teams have been isolated since July’s Fun in Funtuckey took place, they are ready to break free and take down their opponent to remind the league they are hungry for a battle. When these teams do get on the field, there could be a 5.9 to 6.8 quake because of the vibrations happening in S.D.

So look out LAEFL coaches and batten down the furniture to protect your loved ones because there’s gonna be a whole lot of shaking going on in S.D. and the city where you live in Southern California.

THE DAWG DAYS OF AUGUST

Usually this time of year the LAEFL coaches would be preparing for the playoffs (in Jim Mora’s voice) playoffs. But now everyone is just trying to play a game.  5 months into the pandemic and some coaches still have not played a game. (playoffs).

These dawg days of summer have seen the Browns erect their stadium, the Vikings move from L.A., the Steelers add specialty men to their squad for the “playoffs”, the Raiders work their squad into a frenzy for whoever is next, the Bills dodging the virus for himself and his family, the Eagles constructing their stadium for a more intimidating presence, the Chiefs looking into adding more dominant players, the Rams working their squad into a force to be reckoned with, the Cowboys getting acquainted with their new team members, the 49ers making up to look like the bandits they are becoming, the Texans gearing up for the final run before their coach rides off into the sunset of life, the Jets flying high above the fray and looking to crack plastic whenever it happens and the Ravens ready to peck out somebody’s eyes as they quote the Raven nevermore.

So the Dawg days of summer are brewing and about to boil over into the fall of the year but the LAEFL crew are ready to explode whenever the pandemic allows them to meet and crack plastic in a safe environment.

FUN IN FUNTUCKY WAS FUN

7/11 was FUN for the coaches in the LAEFL as they gathered to strike yet another blow against the battle over COVID-19. Five coaches made the trek to Battle on the vibrating football  field. When the battle ended early mid-afternoon the Steelers had taken one from the Texans. The Raiders ripped one from the 49ers and the Texans rebounded with one over the Browns.

At halftime, the coaches took a break and were treated with the foods of football (burgers and dogs and chips and drinks), and all the trimmings.

Each of the games that day was tougher than each coach thought they would be. Although the scores would seem to indicate easy, they were far from it. The Steelers and Coach Price were in control of the score the entire game, Coach EMAC’s team controlled the clock. The Texans had their opportunities, but could not convert 4th and 1. In real football as well as electric football, a yard is sometimes hard to come by. Steelers 28 – Texans 7.

Coach ERob had his Raiders clicking as they took on Coach Rasta and his 49ers. Hit after explosive hit they waged war on this battlefield. And when the final salvo was fired, the Raiders were standing with a 22- 7 “V” over the 49ers.

In the final battle in FUNTUCKY,  Coach John and his mighty Browns traveled to meet Coach EMAC and his Texans in their own yard literally. When the final tock ticked, the Texans were holding the “W” tightly 23-0.

FUNTUCKY WAS FUN FOR ALL IN ATTENDANCE.  7/11 was lucky. More for some than others.
