Tuesday, March 7. We have learned today that the Tropicana “Fighting Coconuts ” triumphed during their home shuffleboard match against a fiercely competitive crew from Indian Creek in Fort Myers. The close score was 13-11.
These extraordinary players from the Tropicana team are not your typical pampered, highly paid, binge drinking, womanizing athletes. No–Ted Skrypak assures us that for them, “this is serious stuff.” When they take the field, they are all business.
After the match the team retired to the Clubhouse to share refreshments with the visitors who returned to Indian Creek sad but content.
