If there were players that just played to have fun instead of making it competition it was hard to tell from the looks of each one of their faces. There were 10 teams that played after the whistle blew at 8:30 as the games began.
The names of teams varied between being funny and what you would say is normal. On one side of the division was White Excellence, Cabrini Admissions and Friends, Extra Burritos with White sauce, Black Squad, and No Lackin. Cabrini Admissions and Friends went placed on consolation in the pool play.
