Cobras reach the first round of the playoffs
New Rookie is given a chance to shine
Injuries in the roster are always an issue, especially during the playoffs, but for rookie center, Heath Ladd, it is an opportunity to prove himself to the team. General Manager, Dean Richter, had this to say about the young forward:
"He's a very disciplined young player who we've been keeping an eye on since he was drafted. The circumstances are unfortunate, but we expect a full recovery. In the meantime, I expect Ladd to bring the same energy and control he's shown all season in the minors. I've no doubt he'll thrive under pressure."
When asked if the rookie would fit in with the rest of the team, considering some of the controversy they've been involved in, Mr. Richter simply laughed.
"It's the playoffs. The only controversy anyone cares about is if a player is taking foolish penalties. And Ladd isn't that kind of player."
Recent appearances: Spicy Reads interview with Cort
Excerpt from the Interview:
The scent of motor oil hung heavy in the air, mingling with the smell of new tires and metal. Shayna walked into the garage, careful to keep close to the cement wall as sparks flew from where a mechanic was cutting up a car door. At the other end of the garage she spotted Cort, sliding out from under a pickup truck.
Damn, that man is fine. She had no idea how anyone could say he wasn’t as hot as any one of the Cobra men. Yeah, he was a bit rougher around the edges, but with his massive build, the bulk of muscles from hard work and the scars from a dangerous life. There were fine creases on his cheek as he smiled at her and he wiped his hands on his grease stained blue jeans before holding it out to her.
She smiled back, taking his hand, then following him into the office attached to the garage. Admired the hard curve of his ass as he grabbed a couple of Dixie cups from the water dispenser.
“I’d offer you coffee, but it’s pretty disgusting.” He handed her the cup of ice cold water. “Thanks for coming here for the interview. My schedules fu—damn crazy lately.”
Taking a sip of water, she nodded and sat on one of the metal chairs, waiting until he’d settled in another before starting with her questions. “Are you still working at the bar and the Forum? I would have thought things had calmed down a bit since Ford’s back to work?”
“I like keeping busy. Mr. Keane asked me to consult with the Cobra’s security team and that kinda led to me working with them part time. The bar ain’t really work—more keeping an eye on my boy so Cam has time to do other shit.” Cort scratched his jaw, looking embarrassed. “Sorry.”
“Not a problem. I want you to be comfortable during the interview, so speak like you would normally.”
“Yeah, been working on making my normal talk better—will probably help if I do end up going to trial.” Cort drained his cup, crumpled it, then tossed it in the big trash bin near the door. “Can’t answer questions about that though. Don’t mind if you ask about other stuff.”
“Fair enough.” She checked her phone for the questions she’d put in her notes app. Reading the first, she grinned. “All right, this one’s from Jamie. ‘What is it like for you to go from “love ‘em and leave ‘em” to “love her and share her”?’”
Cort blinked as he braced his hands on his spread knees. “Was like finding a girl who wanted more than a hard ride? I mean, guess you just meet the right person one day. I was never gonna meet the girl for me riding with my dad’s MC or working for Kingsley. Never expected to when I came back to make sure Ford didn’t get himself killed. And I damn well wasn’t expecting that girl to be the one my brother was already in love with.”
