"Well Jim, a lot is happening in the Fumbbl Cup right now. And not only on the field, right?"
"You're right Bob, we have seen some amazing games, and some amazing parties so far. To be honest, I'm not sure how I came out of Milford's latest party alive, but there you have it."
"Bit of luck for you that Jade wizard was around, that's what I think Jim. What a party. But let's take a moment to highlight an impressive moment in the career of Flash Rip'nsmasher
, star player for the Smashington Greenskins
. He became the first orc ever to score 100 Touchdowns in the notorious Blackbox environment. Quite the achievement, what do you think?"
"Bob, I couldn't agree more. We've all kept our eyes on young Flash since early after he joined the Skins. It was obvious from the start that he is a pretty special Orc. You know, the way he thought about the game, instead of just getting stuck in."
"It's not something we often see in orcs Jim, I'll say that. But Flash figured out pretty early in his career that teams are willing to pay a lot more for scoring than bashing. And, he figured, while bashing on the field is fun, money buys you all the Halflings you can eat. And then some."
"So he did Bob. After some un-orcish reflection, he realized that if he wanted to score more, he could learn something from elves. Not something he'd admit to of course. But he was then seen lurking at training sessions for elves, and in the stands for games that featured elf teams. He must have seen that speed and agility are of the essence for a good scorer, not just brute strength. And he started training accordingly."
"Of course, they still lost in last night's Fummbl Cup game, in part due to Flash failing a dodge and fumbling the ball. It just goes to show, even the great ones have their poor moments."
"Bob, they sure do. But I would never say that to an Orc Blitzer's face. Especially not one that has his own Trebuchet for shooting spare Halflings when he's bored."
"Amen to that Jim. Couldn't agree more."
