Welcome to the Men's League 2017 Season

The Origin of Men's League

     In ancient Rome, conquering heroes returned from wars throughout the empire bathed in glory and the adulation of the citizens. Soon after however, the reality of daily life returned and Centurions and Legionaries alike pined for the camaraderie they shared while out on campaign. Instead of the company of fellow soldiers, they were forced to deal with the wrath of disgruntled wives, consorts and/or concubines who grew embittered by being left behind during the campaigns.

Familiar laments such as:

“Listen Centurion, I don't give a merda that you’re some kind of conqueror, you're taking me to see the crucifixions tonight!”

“Our servants are useless! And don’t get me started about those eunuchs!

     So, as a method of dealing with their plight, a number of soldiers decided to get together once a week at the local Palaestra and challenge each other in noble pursuits such as wrestling, races and what appears to be an early version of dodge ball.

     Replete with copious amounts of food, wine and grog, it soon became more a social occasion and was named “Noctis Ligue”, roughly translated as “Men’s League”.  Thus began a fine traditional that's been passed down over the last 2000 years and is now honoured here at the club every league day during the summer.

     Not surprisingly, we’ve dispensed with the more physically challenging portion of the competition but I assure you that the chance to bond with fellow members and escape the rigours of daily life is still very much alive. You won’t be expected to grapple with any fellow members (unless he’s a Habs fan or the bastard refuses to putt everything out) but instead, enjoy a golf game followed by delicious fare and cold libations in the bar.

     Things get underway on Monday April 24th so bring your "A" game and plan to stick around afterwards for a little grog and some meat while we watch the scores come in.   Should be a great year. 

 

That is all,

 

Kim
