I am pleased to introduce you all to the Madagascan Lemurs, one of LMS Brisbane’s most cherished set of new sons (well, dads).
Let us dig into the storied name, their performances, and their early steps toward a glowing legacy.
The rumoured story behind the name is that the animal and team both have exceptionally long tails (as advised by skipper/organiser/poster boy Paul Blinkhoff).
Included is a picture of a Madagascan lemur (and its tail) along with the lads’ awesome team logo.
Fellow Brisbane manager Johnny and I were instantly aboard with these gents because of their clever wit and their ability to have a chuckle at their own expense – critical ingredients in LMS we feel.
The boys (well, men, statesmen if you will) debuted back on 13 Jan of 2019 and got gassed up by a bunch of young and enthusiastic lads “Memmotts” (who were also in their first game).
But Lemurs did not care about the result, they enjoyed the hell out of the game and in particular sledging one another with reckless abandon.
They have made it to 2 Grand Finals so far but have yet to win a trophy.
They also entered into 2020’s QLD Champs, loving the tournament, consuming a thousand beers, and winning a game (ticking off all their goals!)
Lemurs also recently entered LMS Brisbane’s first T10 tournament on Australia Day in January, just missing out on the semis.
It is worth noting that the lads have not skipped a season since their inception and have now played 80 games for 44 wins and 29 losses (a healthy win-loss ratio of 1.5 wins per loss). They have some real talent.
The lads currently sit 3rd of 8 in their Nth Bris Div 3 league and will be keen to take some silverware this season!
Lemurs are a very team-centric unit, with plenty of quality contributors on and off the field.
They play with a smile on their face, a twinkle in their eye and are all about the fun and laughter that goes with LMS.
Also, they have the coolest kit I reckon, a fitting mixture of trendy retro and crisp modernity, and their infection style and attitude has been a majorly positive influence upon our comp.
Viva la Madagascan Lemurs, and here is to many more seasons, laughs and beers (and a bit of cricket amidst all that).
