VOLUME 18, 14 AUGUST 2015
359 days. Let the countdown begin until next years Black’s Ball.
Our roving reporter was on the scene, pen and paper in tow, ready to capture some hot topics of discussion and relay some of the happenings of the night.
Unfortunately, within about 2 hours of being there, our reporter ran into Howie, who stuffed him full of enough beer to drown Brendan Fevola, meaning artistic license has to be employed when trying to recount the evening.
So here it is. The match report from Saturday the 8th of August.
Adelaide University 10.9.69 defeated by Dom Polski 15.10.100
Best players: Dean, Hewish, Abrey, Heath, Pittman, Henderson.
Goals: Dean 3, Ash Ireland 2, Abrey 2, Garrett 1, Whelan 1, Hewish 1.
Timmy Dean: He was dressed like Deuce Bigalow, and he pashed on like… well, a gigolo. The delightful purple shirt took enough attention away from the fact that he was dancing like a kid that had stepped on a landmine, but it didn’t seem to bother his dancefloor Delilah.
“Timmy Dean is not my lover” she later recounted “He’s just a boy who says that I am the one.  But the kid’s not getting near my bum.”
Elliot Hewish: It was the night of nights for Elliot “Anything’s a dildo if you’re brave enough” Hewish. After a quiet start to the evening, the man dressed like the Monopoly Man’s Ivory trading cousin nestled in to a nook on the side of the dance floor, where he could pounce at any minute.
After spotting a girl guide who clearly didn’t know that Eddie Dadds batted for the other team, Hewish pounced. Within seconds, their faces were melted together like they’d just been victims of a pepsi commercial fire, and the two proceeded to play tongue-tango into the wee hours of the morning.
Oh, and Hewish and Brant Ellis were both complaining of a downstairs itch two weeks back. Just a heads up.
Wayne Abrey: It wasn’t going to be another case of Blue Balls at Blacks Ball for this wily secretary. After spending most the evening being the fun police and boring prospective partners with strategies to offset the Medicare Levy from your assessable income, Screecher finally found his mark.
A younger AUFC gentleman had been courting a girl for a while, and was pleased with his progress. He decided to duck off to the toilet to relieve himself before they shared a taxi ride home.
Screecher had other ideas. You know when you see a seagull on the beach with one leg, and you think to yourself “Ohhhhh he’s not a threat. Let’s give him a chip”, only to find out the prick has two legs and was just pretending the whole time? That was Screech.
In to the taxi they went, leaving the young black bewildered and slightly alarmed when returning from the toilet to find that 2 hours of groundwork had come unstuck at the hands of a sexually deviant secretary.
Bodie Henderson: Special mention should go to Bodie, who, after not even knowing he was attending the Blacks Ball after waking up on Saturday morning, definitely knew he attended the Blacks Ball after waking up on Sunday morning.
So what if the coach buys you your ticket? So what if you’re a dancefloor hit within seconds of arriving. So what if you throw up a few vital organs? At least he did it quickly. According to Howie, to be done by 8:30 pm is a new record. Not even Hamish Crouch’s girlfriend is in bed by then, and she had a big day of colouring between the lines planned for Sunday.
Such was Bodie’s fantastic performance at the beginning of the night on the dancefloor, that people were asking whether he was a paid dancer. The answer, if you were wondering, is no. He is not a paid dancer.
If he was, Alex Ireland would have been stuffing dollar bills in his top all night and asking Bodie to call him “Big Daddy”.
There are countless other people who deserve sprays, but they’ll have to wait for another time. It was an extremely successful night once again. Sportsbet had paid out on Tuesday training being cancelled by 10pm Saturday night.
Anyway, onto the footy. The A’s and B’s play Goodwood this week at BN#1, with the B@stards and the Chards having 10:15 games away at Park 9 and Max Amber sportsfield. The other three fixtures read like an NSYNC song, as Scum, Cmen and 7Res have Bye, Bye, Bye.
May Bob Be With You.

Blacks Ball PSA

Rumour has it that the Blacks Ball provides a little extra each year than Beers, Banter and Belligerent first year players. History shows that the Blacks Ball wields a mysterious power held above all else, the creation of future AUFC superstars (particularly girl guides). This PSA may be considered to be around a week late, but who are we to stand in the way of nature, and the bolstering of future AUFC talent.

To prove this myth is in fact true, below are pictured three of Bob Neils faithful, Luke 'Dutchy' Holland, Peter Malinauskas and Patrick O'Leary exactly nine months after last years Ball.
(A few of you might need a moment to call your friend from Saturday night)

Match Report of the Week #1

The focus of this weeks scum match report is Timmy Dean, an up and coming club legend, he had a solid Blacks Ball weekend an important first step for budding young legends.
He dominated Saturdays game v PHOS with a best on ground performance (which is always a good omen on blacks ball day) and this was despite a nasty neck injury picked up the evening prior see below. He did all this with Bob Neil and Mrs Legend looking on. Bob was impressed.
Then his ball was nothing short of prodigious many pundits calling it the best individual performance at a ball since Dirty Darien O’Reilly went to a ball dressed as a woman (for the cheap ticket) then switched gender mid ball to hit on the ladies. His performance all the more meritorious with the club looking to better integrate the Girl Guides, Timmy achieved this aim almost by single handedly, taking it on himself to make them feel right at home at the club, on ya Tim. Did I forget to mention it was his birthday on the Monday after the ball …… a budding legend of the lower grades
Meanwhile the scum beat the top side by 9 goals booking a double chance and setting up for a jolt at the title.

BP Dean, Dart, Draca, Muso, Eisy, S Lawrence

Goals N Lawrence 4, P Mally 2 Dean 2 Eisy 2 Currie, Howie, Muso, Legrand, Doc

Infamous C-Grade Trainer finishes up with -3 dreamteam points

At a very crucial moment in the last quarter, where the C-Men were up by 74 points - the infamous C-grade trainer was mesmerised by Daniel Not-to-Precise (has kicked 8.16 in last two games). The trainer remained in the square for the ballup and as a result, gave away a free kick to the number 699 university in the world - Flinders. What lead the trainer to stay -  was Dan showing her his pectoral muscles, which are out at any instance possible in the C-grade changerooms before and after matches.

Tom Waterhouse is still providing the best odds for Dan-Not-So-Precise to win the heart of the infamous C-grade trainer, with dark horse odds given to Mr Fashion Jimmy Calder (as seen below).

Jimmy Calder unecessary game fashion Part #2

Jimmy is at it again, way too overdressed for football. Attention to detail is apparently the word here. Jimmy described his kit like this
The modified spray on jeans tickled perfectly with the Lygon street direct jacket, which faded in nicely with revolver Melbourne acid wash tee and FIGJAM Egyptian cotton scarf, all finished off with the designer Calvin Klein socks, and Russell Coight outback boots.
Jimmy hopes this write up will reach Men's Health magazine where he will feature in the future on the front page.
Mate just get on the park for finals. Focus. 

Jimmy now has been nicknamed Hansel. Except Jimmy has a face for radio.

Jamieson and the Euro Babes Part #2

It's amazing how much better you play when you have three European babes come to watch you play.

Max Jamieson was easily best on ground up until half time - blowing kisses after every possession to the onlooking Europeans.

It's funny though - the Euro babes left at half time. Jamo was reported missing soon after, phone call made to the lost persons unit and face on Pura milk cartons the next day - still trying to find him. 

Balaklava Cup with Daryl Braithwaite - DISCOUNTED TICKETS FOR BLACKERS


Flick of the Week

Stomp The Yard

Bodie 'Happy Feet' Henderson got his stomp on at blacks ball, narrowly taking out best on the D-floor award. He was rivaled only by Damon 'Divots' Robinson, who was cutting shapes the likes of which we haven't seen since Michael Quin's last haircut. Bodie's old school dance style tore up the floor with an intent reminiscent of Ben Sanders pursuing the opposite gender (unrestrainable). Rumours are flying that Bodie and Damon now plan on creating their own dance group to go head to head in a Dance battle against Justice Crew.

A/B Grade Guernsey Numbers

The A and B grade playing list (with Guernsey Numbers) is available here for those who have requested player numbers when attending games. There are a number of players moving in and out of these teams but we have done our best to cover most players. However, we do apologise if this is not all encompassing of the potential Div 1 playing squad.
