Formative years. 1993
The bilevels were formed in Bernard Downeys class
. The games were a
Baptism of fire for the inexperienced 15 year olds
making their debuts against the local skinheads and bikie gangs.
There was a certin sense of niavity that encompassed the bilevels, the
young bilevels congrugated in the industrial heartland of Nelson, playing
the local factory workers. The bilevels had no equipment and had to make
do with what they could find, bats were made from crates, and one bilevel
a Mr Gabriel Kiddle fashioned a bat from some twigs. He called the crude
mechanism "The Two handed bat".
At the centre there was an advertising hoarding that proclaimed that "V.B
makes better cricketers", so a tradidtion was formed that before
the start of play, the team would partake in the sharing of the beverage.
This tradation however did not last.
The bilevels in these
early years had the services of a Ned Flanders, alyhough he soon got disilussioned
with the bilevels pagen attitude where we would sacrifice a goat before
the start of play and so formed a new team called jesus loves everyone,
unfortunatly they were high on god , low on coordination.
Another Bilevel of the time was Tim Lewellyn, he was a sharp close in
fielder. In one game an ondrive got hit with force straight into his testicles,
Tim bent forward clutching his testicles, he then keeled over side ways.
Everyone thought he was dead. But he wasnt.
The Victoria House reformation. 1997
The Bilevels moved to Wellington and soon established
the cult following and fever among the oppisite sex.
The team was introduced to the services of a Mr George Crass, Bad Boy
also made his debut this year and he was available to play when he wasnt
using his contreversial methods of spading. (he will probably be angry
when he reads this and threaten to punch my lights out).
The Bilevels at times suffered low player numbers and had to resort to
the services of Steve Strange, Tom and The Tough guy's room mate , sadly
we had to ask tough guys room mate not to play again as he was menatlly
retarded and nearly killed the whole team driving to the indoor centre.
There was this other guy who played , i forgot his name but he looked
like a peodphile.
The Clifton Tce School 1998-1999
Conflicts within the Bilevels continued to destabilise
the harmony within the team. Sledging at practices resulted in
violence and physical brutality amongst team members.
Punching people in the head was not encouraged, so a penalty was established
where the brutaliser was made to walk or cycle to the big games.
Living in Clifton Tce was fraught with confusion, as the team would always
see george going inside, members of the team would cry out to george to
come join us, but he would ignore the pleas. Later we found out that he
was living downstairs and ignoring us cause he had found new friends in
Meatloaf and Peter Ellis.
Days of Glory.2000
The bilevels living apart and a stable team contributed
to the bilevels greatest team winning the division. Sadly the team would
lose a few key players and their ability
to bowl straight and keep the ball down.
The Fall. 2001
Every history has a period of decline, the roman
empire had the dark ages, Star wars has the latest Lucas directed films
and the bilevels have a string of succesive defeats.
These years coincided with half the team living in Zohrab street. Frustration
at the continuing losses were taken out on the stats, with threats of
violence being carried out against fellow members.
Rebirth 2002 - 2003
This year marked the debut of one of the bilevels
more placid players, Mr Lee Samson aka "dont make me angry".
In one game against a team called Team Alona , a player on the oppisite
team was giving Lee some advice, this made lee angry so lee left the playing
area and went to confront hte guy and told him to fuck up or take me (lee)
on. The guy made some impish face and stopped talking. The game progressed.
In the final partnership, the two batters were running when a Mr Chris
Rigg accidently elbowed a midget in the head. The midget got up off the
ground and thought about having a fight and then thought better. As soon
as this ended Lee then bolted after the guy who he had an earlier altercation
with in an effort to resolve their indifferences. Unfortunatly the guy
did not partake in lees invitation at physical resolution.
This was the first bilevels game to be called off.
