Crabby Joe's Year-End Tournament 2009
The best season in Crabby Joe's history ended in a heartbreaking fashion. We dominated out of the gates starting 2-0 (our 1st tournament wins ever!) then crumbled dropping the final 2 games and being eliminated by a tie-game earlier by 2 other teams. We still despite the ending had our BEST season ever! We added new talent and our improved defense had us competing in every game. I love managing this team and look forward to the chance again next season. Thanks to everyone who showed up each week and COMMITTED to the team. I appreciate it. Thanks to our Dennis our new "go-to" guy at Crabby Joe's in Chatham. He put up with us EVERY Friday for 4 Months! Mmmm....$4 Martinis! Hope to see everyone out on the field again next season. Enjoy the off-season. Brett.
