The bad news is that we lost 12-3 bringing our record to 0-4-3. Let’s go for the tie next game so that we can be 0-4-4. We had a nice run at the bottom of the 5th inning to pull in 2 runs to make the score look a bit more respectible. We did not do a good job of gettting base runners on. I think that I need to follow my own advice and kick the ball on the ground (popped out 2x). Our defense was ok. Not great, not terrible. Spin had some well-placed kicks and some smart base running. The game ball this week went to Jaime for stepping up and doing some fantastic pitching. Angie got the offensive game ball. I forget why. I think I have a drinking problem.
The good news is that we’ve played the best teams in the division, so games can’t get any harder. Our final two regular season games are versus sub-par, fun teams (the each have only 1 victory). Let’s close out the season on a high note and build some momentum going into the playoffs.
We do not have a game next week because of the holiday. I propose that we have a team happy hour next Thursday. If there is interest, I’ll try to find a team to scrimmage. I challenged 10 Drunks and a Driver (the grey team) because they are fun. But they are wussies and not up to the challenge that Footloose brings. I’ll get on it and find another team.
July 13 is our next game. Remember that it is Halloween in July. The polls are now closed and the winner of the theme is………………………………………………………………………..Pretty in Pink. That gives you 2 weeks to find the worst, cheesiest, puffiest, frilliest, pinkest (no, it doesn’t need to be pink), chiffonest dress you can find. Yes guys, that means you too. We also need to vote on who will be Ducky (just one person). I want the crazy outfit and the fauxhawk. I vote for Matt. The movie poster says it all: “Blane’s a pretty cool guy. Andie’s pretty in pink. And Ducky’s pretty crazy.” And did you know that Pretty in Pink 2: Ducky’s Revenge is possibly in the works? Seriously, would I tease you about that? Google it.
We will need volunteers to bring libations next week. Thanks to Jed and Ren McCormick for stepping up at the last minute this week. If you have not brought brewskies yet, your time is up (cups and ice don’t count, cheapass).
Have a great holiday weekend. Try to keep those livers in shape.
