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.”
“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.”
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.
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.
