This LegalMatch Tournament promises to be something very special. The contestants are lining up fast. The Membership Group has already jumped the gun before the list of invitees have even been sent. Ray Whelan, David Merritt and Frank Perkins have already sized up the new regulation playing surfaces and started to name the tables in their honor. Who are these guys? And Peter Reis is still walking around mumbling something about having this twisted torpedo backhand something or other slap shot that is supposed to be out of this world, ranking him among the top squeegie window washers in the universe. We'll keep our eye on this kid.
The competitive banter in accounting is heating up between Diane Tran, Augie Chun and Kurt Jerdon. Chas Blackford in Marketing has surfaced from underground to let it be known that he's fit and ready to show his stuff. I heard Laurie Ziffrin and Michael Pascoe in Member Services comparing the virtues of the rubber paddles versus those of a fine natural or synthetic polymer blend. VP Doug Ott has carved his initials into the championship bracket and is taking on all comers. Randy Wells, however, has required that the matches are played before anyone can be declared the winner. Sorry Doug.
You had to know that It didn't take Ed Lin long to show off his proficient unorthodox grip while engaging Yuri Gelman in an inagural game after assembling the two new roll away Stiga Pro Tables. Many thanks go out to "da crew," Jeff Sacramento, Augie Chun, Michael Gutman, Benny Sandholm and Matt Griffith who helped moved these 2 ton tables from Kurt's truck and up to the penthouse. And of course, nothing would have happened without the cooperative efforts of Kurt Jerdon. Thanks Kurt.
The Tournament Trials start November 1st and run through until January. The Finals will take place in February. What's at stake? Well, what did you think...? Of course we got them. The cherished prizes that everyone has been whispering about 'The LegalMatch Clients Come First Assistance Plaque' and the impressive 'Attorney Connection Matching Pins'. The Pins are a 'must have' and the plaque will go to the team scoring the most points during the Tournament. This is shaping up to be as big if not bigger than the RoofTop Basketball Tournament. I'm all about it. Are you? Get your Paddle. The play begins NOW.-
New York, Los Angeles and Virtual Team, USA - you too can get in on the action. Just pick a winner and you too will share in the excitement and the victory with a 'Matching Pin' of your own. More information about this will be forth coming in the weeks ahead.
