Grunge Match

That was a typo; should have been Grudge Match. Though, judging by the photo, grunge was just about it.

Photo of yesterday’s “Grudge Match” played in the usual jovial spirit and camaraderie!
Allan won(9-6) his third consecutive title how I just don’t know!
My reason for my defeat is quite simple and will be of great interest to you!
He lost the Trophy so, in my opinion, there wasn’t anything to play for!
What! He lost the Trophy doesn’t that ring a bell or two!
