Greetings from Sesla,
I’m J.A. Ireland. I’m sitting at my desk in beautiful downtown Kinkorx while writing my column for the newspapers. It’s an unusually cloudy day. The Kinkorx TV Weather girl, May Willowman, called for rain later this morning. From the looks of the sky, maybe she’s right. It’s been a while since we’ve had rain in this part of the desert. Everything needs water; our reservoirs are a bit low as well.
My column today is about the Kinkorx Horned Hares. As you may know, I follow our local mesnuk team closely and co-announce home games regularly. It’s always fun to work with Derrix Weyd, Kinkorx TV Sports Anchor. He’s the official voice of the Kinkorx Horned Hares and announces all their games. Stin Gismurr, Kinkorx TV program director, is always there to insure to the quality of the broadcast.
Now that “The Set of Games” has concluded and we’re in “It’s the Rallies” the Horned Hares are chasing another Sesla Mesnuk Championship.
Since Jeqrix Grexenn, the desert furniture giant, purchased the team several years ago, the hares are vastly improved. They’ve even won a Sesla Championship. What a moment that was? I was there and co-announced that game; it was thrilling. In a last minute victory, the hares defeated the Guytic City Fighting Tobacco Farmers. Billionaire owner of the tobaccos, Xuro Qashlet, looked none too happy. His enormous payroll athletes couldn’t overcome the determination of the new, and driven with will-power players for Mr. Grexenn’s team.
Moments after that game, lines began forming inside the gift ships within the stadium. The Horned Hares memorabilia sold out so fast. I was lucky a friend of mine there stashed a mesnuk cap for me. Now that we’re in “It’s the Rallies” and the hares are in I’m wearing mine everyday to support the team.
The Hares are traveling to the wet lands and playing the Guytic City Tobacco Farmers, the defending Sesla champs. That game will be brutal—as always. Xuro Qashlet, the billionaire owner, has the highest payroll of any professional mesnuk team on Sesla. His players are the best; they’re big, fast, and strong.
I spoke with Jeqrix Grexenn recently. He’s confident the hares will be triumphant. He admitted in our brief lunch chat, that he misses Zith Fleen. He feels Zith was the most aggressive player he’s ever had on the team. If you’d like to read that story, I’ve written a novel about it. The Kinkorx Horned Hares Slasher details the tragic story.
It’s time to get back to my column. May Willowman was right—it’s raining. The plants and our reservoirs sure need the water. Until we talk again.
May good fortune guide your path,
