Lugnuts Reunion Game 6 Recap

The Lugnuts were coming off of their first win of the Reunion season when they took on Los Messicans on Thursday night. It was the last chance to get the bulk of the team together as the last couple of games will have quite a few key players away for various reasons. Who are we kidding, we have only had the bulk of this lineup out for one game and we won, see a trend there? Speaking of people missing, we did have a few for this game but still managed a decent amount of subs at the bench. Could the Lugnuts start an actual streak? Here is the recap: read more

Lugnuts Reunion Game 5 Recap

The Lugnuts Reunion continued on Thursday night as they began the second half of the season still in search of that elusive first win. Stephen came up with the great idea to meet at Chili’s for a little pre-game while we caught a bit of the Man Utd-Man City preseason match being held in Houston, a game in which our own Chris Lee was attending so he was excused for the night, maybe for the best as he probably was not recovered from last week’s headshot. So while Brett and Simon knocked back a few quite large Dos Equis to dull the pain of tendinitis and hip replacements (it works as a treatment by the way), Chris went on the hunt for a new Lugnuts manager to try and turn the winless season around, in need of a little Pep maybe?: read more

Lugnuts Reunion Game 4 Recap

It was Thursday night which means the Lugnuts Reunion marched on with a game against a fellow winless team in Chimera. This one was clearly marked down on the schedule as a chance to get 3 points but naturally I must first tell you who could not make it this week, it’s only right that there be a bunch, right? Let’s see…Pete, Craig and Luke were out of town and Cisco was also unable to attend. But there was some good news as Stephen returned in the net and Jesse was able to make his debut. I think I will give Craig a pass this week since his excuse had the most validity by the looks of it, staying fit for next week and beats the heck out of the Top Golf excuse… read more

Lugnuts Reunion Game 3 Recap

After a week off the Lugnuts (0-0-2) were back in action on Thursday night with the third game of their Summer Reunion season. Their opponent was a fellow winless team in Grandbruy (typo GameOn?) United (0-1-2). The Lugnuts have had their fair share of personnel issues so far and there were more missing this week with Stephen, Luke, Craig and Fabricio out but at least it was a pleasant surprise to actually have a couple of subs at the bench this time around as Brett and Chris got their first action this season. We also thought we were welcoming the return of a much-needed sniper up front in the form of…no, not the aforementioned Brett, but Brad: read more

Lugnuts Reunion Game 2 Recap

It was the second game of the Lugnuts Reunion season on Thursday night as they took on Questionable FC, or QFC as I will call them the rest of the way as I am tired and grouchy after getting home at 1am then enduring a two-hour power outage in the wee hours of the night. Well the grouchiness is more coming from the fact that we played with no subs as it seems some people have yet to come to grips with the term Reunion, as here is a list of the absentees from last night:

Stephen (gallivanting):

Lugnuts Reunion Game 1 Recap

After all the pre-season trash talk it was time for the first game of the Lugnuts Reunion season. GameOn Sports Arena in Fort Worth was the site, and Fury was their opposition. The Lugnuts were previously a fixture in Division 1 but it was decided that D2 would be a much better fit, we hope, as everyone is 5 yrs older plus a handful of the returnees have had to dust off the old soccer shoes. Also Luke claims to have given his red jersey to goodwill but I like to think it is framed in his man cave. There was some pre-game news to share as Brad (off on safari), Nathan (nursing “evening sickness”), Brett (flight delay) and Jesse (big babyitis) were unable to attend. Kinda makes this comment a little ironic, huh: read more

Lugnuts – Season Preview

Herrrroooo Rugnuts! Ok, I will lay off the Nathan impersonation…for now. For those who are not familiar, the Lugnuts were a successful Over 30 (and dabbled in Open) team run by our fearless leader Nathan Chan around 5 years ago. Sure there were some Championships but this team was about more than that, it was about the banter and more importantly the drinking afterwards, mostly in the parking lot but there was the occasional Oscar’s and Chili’s thrown in there. Recently it was thought to be a good idea to resurrect (fitting word as I think at least one member may have passed since then) the team for a Summer season while the after party weather was at its finest. Only time will tell if this is a good idea. Here is a look at one of those past Championship teams featuring some of this season’s familiar faces: read more
