Usually when an all-rookskee squad comes out hot in the first week or two, I’ll blow some smoke about how we’ve never had a rookie team win a Chalice and how this could be the skeeson and that I’ve never seen rookies roll like this before, yadda yadda yadda. And then they end up sh*tting the bed a week or two later and either miss the playoffs or get crushed in the first round.
But this time I can’t even feign interest in hyping these guys up. They’re the real deal. The numbers speak for themselves and they took down the early-skeeson favorite Skee Wee Herman last week. And when I say took down, I mean crushed them by over 50 points.
And the scariest part of it all? Scarier than them all being rookies, scarier than them already learning to dominate the 40,50, and 100 hundo holes, and scarier than their customized jerskees? They have 4 players, and if one guy can’t make it or is sick, it absolutely doesn’t matter because all 4 of them can absolutely ball out on the lanes.
Long story longer, don’t sleep on these rooks. But if you do, don’t snore.
PS If they catch the RT cover jinx this week, then forget everything I said after the first paragraph.
