The Fireballs continue to improve. They had about half as many players as we did, and we were able to wear them down. They need a lot of work yet, but we were extremely glad that we had an opportunity to play. We love the sport, so we'll get out there on the field any chance we get. We may meet them during the championship weekend on Nov. 12th, so we look forward to that - and we don't expect such a blowout.

Seems to me the Republicans' spin has spun out of control:


Also, I think the Dems have to win Congress to set the stage to win the presidency.

Fireballs? I see, too, some teams are playing without helmets. Maybe you can form a special helmetless league for skinhead fascists to wean them away from soccer. In fact, please do!

Well, hope springs eternal. I can't say I don't want USA today to be wrong... but on the other hand I don't see the dems "setting the stage for the presidency". If they do win, I see them going on several witch hunts, holding lots of trials and hearings, and dividing the country even further. That's what the "base" seems to want. Unfortunately, the vast majority of Americans don't want witch hunts, but they do want competent governing. If that's what the Dems decide to do, it will indeed set the stage for the presidency.

I hate the name "Fireballs", and we duly punished them for their poor choice of name on Sunday. At the moment the league is more-or-less a democracy, and the teams get to decide thier own names. Soon to come will be the Łódź Lemons (Cytryny)-- I hate that one too, but it's what they chose. To be honest, I also hate "The Crew". But I think the name "Pomorze Seahawks is alright, especially since they're from Poland's seaside.

At the moment, the team from Łomża will be the "Hussaria" which I think is a fantastic name, and the Krakow team will be the "Tigers" though I don't understand why they didn't choose the "Dragons" which in my mind would be most appropriate.

Top Cat - As a matter of fact, this blog is not exclusively about Poland - it's about whatever I feel like making it about. We've had numerous discussions about American sports here -- and if you dig way back in the archives, you can find lots of commentary on American politics. I've even had some "complaints" that I don't cover enough American politics -- but at the moment there's so much American political blogging that I don't know if I can add something original. Still, as the midterm elections get closer, expect more about American politics for WS' significant American audience share.

Well, I spoze things could have been worse. They could have monikered themselves the Hotnuts.

Don't worry TC. I won't rub your whiskers in it!

Top - but Gustav often posts on US issues. He's a patriot. He especially likes posting on obscure sports with men wearing Edwardian dress. I don't know why. Maybe Warsaw Station is a historical fashion blog.....

it's me deleting, something wrong with blogger...for a change!

A little correction:
Łomża Jackals... Husaria is from Szczecin.
There are also temas forming up in Białystok (Lowlanders), Ostrów Wielkopolski (Islanders), Radom (Hornets), Katowice (Silesia Miners), Nowy Targ (Mountaineers). There is also another team in Wrocław (Devils) and Kraków (Knights).

Greetings from Pomorze Seahawks

Greetings sirmicho. Can't wait to play you.

I know about all those teams coming up -- but will they be able to start next season?
