The Kinkorx Horned Hares Fall Short Of Championship


Greetings from Sesla,

After a late night, I’m in my office early writing my sports column for the Kinkorx Desert News. It’s going to be a long day. Functioning on inadequate rest.

The bright morning sun is shining through my office windows. Normally that would be spectacular. This morning, the glare is difficult to deal with. Actually, it’s giving me a headache.

I just finished writing my article about the mesnuk game last night. Thought you would like to know how the Kinkorx Horned Hares’ season concluded.

It was a long and glorious “The Set of Games” and “It’s the Rallies” mesnuk season for our Horned Hares. I had the opportunity to attend and announce many of the home games with my colleague, Kinkorx TV Sports Anchor Derrix Weyd. We announced the game together last night at The Mesnuk Stadium Downtown. The hares home field.

Throughout the course of the Rallies, the physical toll on the hares became tremendous. Several of the star players received severe injuries. Wounds that eliminated them from competing.

Due to the loss of the primary players, their winning percentage dropped. As you may know, all teams advance from The Set of Games into It’s the Rallies regardless of their records. However, once in the Rallies, when a teams win percentage falls below 50%, they’re out. The season is over.

The hares have struggled for several weeks now, due to the absence of several key players. Another Sesla championship has looked  bleak.

I spoke to Jeqrix Grexenn, the owner of the Horned Hares, in the locker room after the disappointing loss to The Tos-Xiron Doxers last night. Here’s my brief interview.

Jeqrix Grexenn. “Hi JA. Good to talk with you again.”

“Nice to see you too. A disappointing loss tonight? Wouldn’t you say?”

Jeqrix smiled. “Not at all. I couldn’t be prouder of my team. They fought hard. The Doxers are a much improved mesnuk team. They deserve to move further in the Rallies.”

I asked, “Are you concerned about any of the injuries? Some were severe. Will all your players be back next season?”

Smiling, Jeqrix replied, “I’m not concerned whatsoever. My players are very dedicated. I’m confident they’ll all be back next season. It’s nice to see you again JA. Let’s have lunch again soon . ”

“Sounds good. Grexenn Park again?” I asked.

Jeqrix nodded. “My favorite park. Can’t imagine why?” He chuckled. Then began exiting the Hares locker room.


That was my brief interview with Jeqrix Grexenn, the owner of the Horned Hares, following the hares devastating loss last night to the Tos-Xiron Doxers that ended their season.

There was a bright moment in the night, however. I’ll take you there live to the scene:


Derrix said, “This is a full stadium tonight JA.”

“It sure is Derrix. Looks like coteries are standing in the isles. They’re here to support their mesnuk team.”

Fans Are Going Wild

Fans Are Going Wild!!!

“Just listen to the crowd noise. It’s deafening. These fans are excited. Ha JA. Check out the special lighting. Aren’t those engineers something?” Derrix added.

JA laughed. “The strobe lights are amazing. But, the screaming’s coming from the Horned Hares side of the mesnuk stadium. Jeqrix Grexenn, the owner of the Horned Hares, is making his way through the crowd to his owners box. He always walks through the coteries while shaking hands.”

“The fans love their owner,” Derrix said. “He’s gonna have to be real careful walking in the dark with those swirling lights.”

JA laughed. “Yes he will and yes they do,” JA added. “But that’s not all they’re cheering about. The commentator just announced that Detective Maxx Zeqster and Detective Art Nekuma are sitting in the first row.”

“There they are. The lighting engineers are shinning lights right on them.” Derrix said. “Sesla’s super detective duo. They’re waving to the cheering crowd while smiling.”

Maxx Zeqster's Private Detective Badge“Are they ever popular?” JA asked. “Just listen to the roar. Between the applause for Jeqrix Grexenn, Maxx and Art, and the special lighting, this stadium might just explode.”

Derrix added, “You can be sure of one thing. The crime lords that are watching this broadcast are gritting their teeth in rage right now. You know they hate Maxx and Art.”

“No one hates them more than Zog Morxoc. He’s still serving his time in prison for sand trafficking,” JA further added.

“Here comes the Horned Hares,” Derrix said.

As the engineers returned the lights to normal, The Kinkorx Horned Hares mesnuk team ran onto the field. Their fans stood and went crazy. They tossed their snacks into the air while standing on their seats and screaming.


Sunny Day in Kinkorx

As I sit at my desk, drinking a cup of hot tea, the morning sun is continuing to get brighter. It’s going to be a beautiful day. But, my headache is worsening. Better take something for it.

During the game last night, the much improved Doxers edged out the Hares 5 to 4 to advance in the Rallies. A strong, late game effort by the doxers lead them to victory over the battered hares.

It’s been a long and difficult season for the hares due to injuries. Hopefully over the off season, their wounds will heal.

Next season the hares will make another attempt at the Sesla Championship. A feat the team has accomplished once. I was fortunate to announce that game here at The Mesnuk Stadium Downtown in Kinkorx. That was a thrilling game. Thought you would want to know how the hares season turned out. We are very proud of our Kinkorx Horned Hares.

Until we talk again.

May good fortune guide your path.

Sand Trafficking Blamed For Increase In Local Crime


Greetings Coteries,

I am J.A. Ireland from Sesla.

In Xcuymir Territory, where I live, we have a never ending problem with sand trafficking; this problem never seems to go away.  It’s our organized crime of the desert. It seems that, along with the illegal sand trafficking trade, there is a noticeable increase in the general crime rate.

I wanted to share an interesting article with you from my friend Vigtor Zertus. He works for the Kinkorx Desert News.  He wrote this article of his interview with General Sheriff Kein Mairytin of the Xcuymir Territory Sheriff Department.

Xcuymir Territory Enchanted  Sand Dunes

Kinkorx Desert News: Headline:  Sand Trafficking Blamed For Increase In Local Crime

Kinkorx Desert News reporter, Vigtor Zertus writes, “My sources at the Xcuymir Territory Sheriff Department in Jxobslyn are informing me that General Sheriff Kein Mairytin is continuing to blame the escalating crime rate in Xcuymir Territory on the illegal sand trafficking trade.

Earlier this week, my camera technicians and I traveled to Jxobslyn and spoke with General Sheriff Mairytin. My interview was video recorded from the lobby of the sheriff department for print and possible TV airing later.

Vigtor Zertus, roaming reporter for Kinkorx Desert News asked, “General Sheriff Mairytin, what is being done to abate the rising crime rate in Xcuymir Territory?”

“We are putting all of our resources toward this increasing problem,”  Sheriff Mairytin said vaguely.

Vigtor Zertus questioned, “When you say all of your resources…What does that mean?”

Vigtor’s lack of respect for the  General Sheriff’s ranking annoyed  Mairytin.  General Sheriff Kein Mairytin replied angrily, “I have an increased number of troopers, as well as the Kinkorx  Police investigating the sand trafficking operation.”

“So, you still have the Chief of Kinkorx Police Department, Chief  Pomur working on the investigation?”  Vigtor further questioned.

“That’s correct,” responded General Sheriff Mairytin with irritation.

Vigtor Zertus saw his opening.  He could sense the impending eruption. “Our readers and viewers will want to know why you are giving Chief Pomur and the Kinkorx Police Department more time to catch the perpetrators of the on-going, illegal, sand trafficking business.”

General Sheriff Mairytin’s disdain for Vigtor Zertus became apparent.  He replied angrily, “Chief Pomur is working directly under Chief General Zayer’s and my supervision. We have every confidence that he will catch the perpetrators.”

Vigtor persisted. “If Chief  Pomur continues to be unsuccessful at catching the criminals that are operating the sand trafficking ring, what will yours and Chief General Montique Zayer’s next plan of action be?”

With an angry red face, General Sheriff  Mairytin flew into a rage. “I do not discuss our strategies with reporters! This interview is over!”  While in the rage, he hurried back to his office.

Mrs. Vyi Kaqxer, the sheriff department secretary, and receptionists smirked at Vigtor as he stood bewildered in the lobby.

Vigtor Zertus summarized, “Chief General Montique Zayer and General Sheriff Kein Mairytin are continuing to put their trust in Chief Pomur to catch the perpetrators of the illegal sand trafficking operation in Xcuymir Territory. This is their plan to abate the increasing crime rate. We all remember what happened when these two top officials trusted Police Chief Morxoc to handle the problem. Luckily, Detective Maxx Zeqster and Detective Art Nekuma stepped in and solved the crime spree at that time. This is Vigtor Zertus reporting live from the Xcuymir Sheriff Department in Jxobslyn.”

He turned to Mrs. Kaqxer. “Would you like to be notified of the printing of this article or the possible airing on TV?”

She smirked  and said, “Not necessary.”

Vigtor smiled courteously. “Ok then…Thank you.”  He and his camera technician left the sheriff department in Jxobslyn.


It’s J.A. again. This article is in the Kinkorx Desert News today.  Thanks to the news wire, his article was in The Bedsult Daily News and the Wyluxx City Times as well. The interview aired on Kinkorx TV News earlier today as well. 

I hope you liked the interview article. Sand trafficking and the accompanying crime has always been a major problem for us in  Xcuymir Territory.  Just like Chief Morxoc before him, Police Chief Pomur and his staff cannot seem to get a major investigation going into this returning crime spree.

The historic crime-wave of sand trafficking is what catapulted Detective Maxx Zeqster into stardom on Sesla.  I detailed Maxx’s brilliant work in my novel, The Unthinkable Duo of Justice.

Just thought I would share the interview article with you.

Until we talk again.

May good fortune guide your path,

J.A. Ireland
