'Cause I'm a Loser Baby

Tuesday, May 27, 2008
But that's why you love me. The cribbage tournament is over. I should just leave it at that but you know I can't leave you hanging.

We had all the signs pointing our way. Our shirts were the same colour as the medal we were hoping to win, we had last year's medal for luck, a mechanical dancing hamster dressed up as a robot (we had given away last year's lucky hamster), Mr. Roboto played on the radio on the way to the event, four returning members of last year's team...it was all falling into place. We were stoked. A bit cocky maybe. Methinks a bit too cocky.

Things did not start out great - lost one, won one. No worries, right? Last year we had a similar start. Next two games...two more in the LOST column. It just got worse from there. We managed to score a total of 4 wins (or was it 5?) out of 12 games. And one of those was because the other team failed to show up. Yeah, that's the way a winner rolls. Ha! No matter what we did, not one of our three teams of two had a hand higher than 12 for all the games we played. Ah well, what can you do. We had a good time and that's what matters. Although not as much fun apparently as Bud (yes that WAS his name), the drunken painter who swore a mean streak, loved to touch everyone and breathed all over you. What a shame we didn't get to play his team until the very last game (insert sarcasm here).

Guess I'll just have to practice more for next year.

I used to play cribbage, but it's been so long now that I forgot how to play.

Let me get this straight, you play competitive team cribbage? Damn girl, you fierce.

Oh yes Barb, that I am. In truth, I have only been playing once a year for the past two years...just whenever Corporate Challenge comes on. Last year - 3rd place. This year - somewhere after 6th place. However, we are considering setting up a lunchtime cribbage group with the hope of a labour day playoff match with our fellow employees in our department which are located in another building. Damn, I'm sooo competitive...
