Sunday June 7 saw the Pub Heroes of the Glorious People’s Team descend upon the decadent back country north of the city to strive in a contest with CT United. The slippery epoxy of grass and unusual height of the pitch meant only one thing: The field was constructed by imperialist Dick's! The unfamiliar terrain of the carpet added to the heat of the day and was matched only by the heart of the players from TDFC, as the People’s Team battled to a 4- 4 draw. Thus reinforcing the working class mantra of “a draw on the road is as good as a win.” But we are reminded by "Karl" Mac's education that when the enemy advances, withdraw; when he stops, harass; when he tires, strike; when he retreats, pursue; and victory of another kind will be known.
Great exultations to the goal scorers on the day, including a deuce by The Young Pioneer (as assisted once by Comrade Alex and once by Comrade Tommy), Comrade Baldwin (as assisted by the Young Pioneer – in keeping with the truly collective style of TDFC) and a solo venture in the name of all by Comrade Tommy himself!Excellence spread back to front!
The chances from the opposition were fast and furious, so all glory to the Gang of Four – including the healthy Comrade Fernando! – on keeping the attacking hordes at bay!Between the posts Che James held it together well in the face of the speed of the onslaught.
The midfield and attacking players were no slouches themselves, getting fresh life from the bench in short multiple shifts.The return of Comrade Jamie was well noted, as his work fighting in the center caused disruptions of strip mall proportions.
Keeping a cool head in the face of consistently inconsistent calls, the People’s Team showed their true revolutionary collective spirits!Aided by a strong group of supporters from the sidelines, the day was one to behold and herald as a victory for the working class worldwide! Cleats up, lumpinproles down!
Heading into the final week before the summer break for further education and conditioning, the Glorious People’s Team are tied for second place in a division wrought with capitalists, imperialists and fascists.All Power to the Pub, All Power to the People!
