Blood Bowl Game Round-up  
My Amazon team, The Wailing Banshees, for their first game took on punk_rock_nerd's Wood Elf team, Via Caeli. The first half was pretty tight, with both teams scoring a touch-down each.

One of my Throwers, Nike, took a tumble trying to overstretch to score, and ended up killing herself. However, we rushed her to the team Apothecary, Miracle Maxine, and it turned out she was only mostly dead and was able to come back for some second half heroics.

In fact, it was the recovered Nike who, in the second half, scored the winning touch-down, bringing the team home 2-1. This, coupled with a beautiful completed pass, and a game-saving interception in the first half, easily made Nike the best player on the field today.

So, it is beyond me why the judges gave the MVP award to Melpomene, a lowly Linewoman who had a mediocre game at best. The prevailing theory amongst the coaching staff is that it may have something to do with the fact that Melpomene has the biggest set of tits on the team.

Aside from the score-line, there was some pretty hefty carnage in the second half. Four Wood Elves died, which is surprisingly unlucky since the Amazons only managed to inflict 3 casualties.

The fourth death resulted from a spectacular leap that the Wood Elf Wardancer performed over the line of scrimmage. Commentators suspect that it was not actually part of the game plan for him to then land on his head and break his neck. The crowd, however, went wild.

After witnessing such carnage, the surviving Wood Elves decided that maybe this isn't the sport for them after all, and the team has officially been disbanded. This left commentators to ask the hypothetical question: if that's what happens when Wood Elves take on a bunch of girls what would happen if they actually took on a team with some balls?

The one commentator who was actually heard, by a member of the Banshees, asking this question out loud was left to ponder the question of whether he might now, technically, be eligible to join the Banshees.

It's not taunting. It's flavour.

And, yes.

I was going to take it one step further and suggest a league website.

Damn! I was about to suggest that. I will create an LJ community for it.
