Another first: availability vs willingness. The lineup went out at 8:44 P.M. and less than an hour, a player on the lineup wrote:

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to play in the match.  I sprained my back and according to the chiropractor, I will be out for the next 2-3 weeks.  So sorry about that!  I updated my availability online.

Then yesterday a fellow skipper sent out the weekly practice that has me on the list. This morning the same player with sprained back signed up:

12/7, 9:22 A.M.

I’m in for either time. Thanks!

It didn’t sit well with me. Since I’m short of players, so I asked this player if tonight’s match a possibility?

12/7, 9:36 A.M.

For the match? I can play in the match tonight. Got the okay to play from my doctor.

I’ve to say that over the seasons, starting from the very first, I never have to face a partial lineup, nor needed to send out repeat appeals for filling a line up.
