Will Play For Food

Weekly Announcement

Tough break but a great game. We had 10 scheduled to play but with 1 sick at the last minute and 1 no show we had to have the handicapped coach (me) play & we started with 9. Luis from Los Topos asked in the bottom of the 2nd to play when he saw we were short handed. We went from 0-8 to 8-8, then 10-10 after 5. Down 7 in the bottom of the 7th we scored 4 but with no outs ended our comeback. Great heart and effort everyone!!!

Now Playing: "Hey Song"

Many of the Will Play For Food team members are devout L.A. Lakers fans.   Over the years we've rooted them on.  For me it started when I was a kid watching TV with my Dad and rooting for Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Gail Goodrich and Norm Nixon.

Why have the Lakers won 3 straight?
In my opinion it can be described in 2 words:  Phil Jackson

05/26/2002 - "It was a Lucky Shot"  --   Vlade "Sir Flop-a-Lot" Divac
Note:  Horry's shot, in my opinion,
was the single biggest play in the playoffs.
