It came down to them and the undefeated (going into the finals) Dogfish Head team. It's a well-known fact the the DFHers have a Bocce court on -premise which makes Nodding Head almost the underdogs even though they were returning champions.
Decker thought all his opponents were a challenge. "It's almost like work. It's been a struggle all day. I thought Stewarts was going to take us in the first game." Grubb is contemplating retiring before the annual matchup next year-a similar move to Tim Roberts after he won the Royal Stumble a couple years back.....
The day also provided my first sips of anything from Evolution Brewing Co based out of Southern Delaware. I only had about 2 oz of their Lot 6 IPA but I enjoyed it.
A big thanks to Iron Hill for hosting. It may have rained on our bocce parade- but it certainly didn't stop the good times. The balls and them kept on rolling.
