The Imps won the first game of the regular and post-season when it counted the most, Monday night against 1st % Tile advancing into the second round of the IMA Olympic Division playoffs aided by hot bats and crisp defense.  The offense exploded in the first inning scoring five runs capped of Tommy Garrison's inside the park two-run homer.  Garrison said after the game, "You really have to run a lot when you hit a homerun.  I plan on focusing on my singles next game."  Garrison, joined Derek McClure and Kevin See in a barrage of hits, each having four apiece.  Not only was the offense running like a well oiled machine, but the defense was also impeccable.  For the first time this season, the Imps committed no errors in 7 hard fought innings.  The defense was anchored by solid play in left field by James Freund catching deep fly balls and gunning down runners.  "I do what I can" said James after the game.  "On a scale from 1 to 10, I would say I played pretty good."  The Imps celebrated the victory with a raucous freak show highlighted by Amber Parsons cartwheeling around all the diamond.  Amber declined to comment on the episode, due to her disorientated state of mind.  The final score was 13-4.  The Imps will take the diamond again against the InfraRed Sox Thursday at 6pm IMA field 3.

Besch Unilaterally Reschedules Soup
"Executive Decision" To Upend Multi-month Tradition of Midweek Potage
- Loew Hall, September 24

Exercising a little-used mandate to implement "executive decisions" at times of crisis, QERM Administrator Joanne Besch declared at 9:54 this morning that today's Soup would be canceled and shifted to Thursdays at 11:45. Citing "scheduling conflicts", Mrs. Besch suggested that this stunning upheaval of a longstanding tradition of Wednesday soup is liable to continue throughout the autumn quarter. A glimmer of hope to the traditionalist faction was given by an official statement issued from the central office stating: "We may switch back to Wednesdays winter quarter if that works better for everyone."


Will Tommy step up to the plate and redesign this main page?
