She Knows How to Use Them

Post-Game Wrap-Up


In a great game against Bunt Funk, we lost a tight one 3-2.  The Funkatiers stand along at the top of the division undefeated, and we hung right there with ‘em.  There were some close calls.  If one or two of them went our way, then we may have been able to eek that one out.  The cheers with jell-o shots between innings was a nice touch that I think we should continue… any volunteer chefs? 


Post-Mania Wrap-Up


Metal Mania was once again a throw down that even the Gods of Heavy Metal would be proud of.  Steve’s “boombox” provided the wattage that was required for Quiet Riot and my Monsters of Rock CD and the entire jug of jungle juice that we waxed got the night started off right.

The game got off to a late start because Ranger Dick decided to enforce the boundaries of the Vietnam Memorial, which apparently cuts about half way into our regular fields.  Because we had to get to Heaven & Hell by 11pm, we skipped the X and went for jumbo slice and dancing at H&H.  We sequestered a corner for ourselves and took full advantage of the $10 2 shots/2 beers deal.  I cabbed home at 2am and woke up with a platform shoe here, a bandana there, and in fog from the night before.  Ah, Metal Mania, how do I love thee…


The game ball goes to our pitcher, PJ, simply because he looks hot in jorts. 


Action Item 1:  Attendance


Please respond whether or not you will be at tonight’s 6:30 game vs the Recess Rejects.


Scouting Report


This is not the Recess Warriors of year’s past—they folded.  (I think Jed’s fiancé, Margaux, couldn’t take us any more.  Ah, kickball love.)   The Rejects are a new team, and I know nothing about them or anyone on their team.  So we’ll test them tonight to see if they can hang with Footloose.

Because of Ranger Dick, we’ll likely have to set up fields closer to the pond.  So let’s gather down there if the fields aren’t already set up.  Jed, I believe, will try to get there early and take care of squatting fields. 


Captains Tip of the Day


·         Just relax when kicking.  If you pop out, don’t worry, we’ll still be your friend.  But you’re cut from the team. 

·         Remember to get the ball back to the pitcher ASAP, even if there is a close call and you’re waiting to hear the result.  If there is a runner on base, and if they are smart, they will continue to run. 

·         The base coaches have been doing a great job of telling the runners when to run or stay, the # of outs, and generally helping them.  Please continue to do so. 

·         If you call “I got it,” then you damn well better catch the ball.  If another player says they gots it, then you should back off. 

Action Item 2:  Theme of the Week

Acton Item 3:  Libations


Who’s bringing the liquid fun and cups? 


Bag O’ Schwag


Remember to help yourselves to any of the goodies that I bring.  Also, give be $5 beetches!  I’ve spent over $100 so far on schwag. 


Scavenger Hunt


I just got word that there are still openings for the Hunt.  So if you were on the fence or worried that you couldn’t make the deadline, we can still get you in.   They do NOT need to play kickball.   Spread the word!


Friday Night Grill & Chill


Cuz Saturday is the DC scavenger hunt, I need to have a relatively chill Friday night (if you’re doing the hunt, you will too…).  So if you want to come over Friday night anytime after 7pm to grill, throw some horseshoes, play a little volleyball, and sit by the campfire once the sun goes down, you’re invited to join me and roommate Kevin (Aaron is outta town).  I suppose that I can break out the beer pong table too.  Just bring a chair if you got one, some beer/wine, and anything you want to grill. 


If you can make it, cool; if not, I’m sure we’ll do it again.

We’re about a 15 min walk from the Clarendon Metro.


She’s got legs, she knows how to use them.
She never begs, she knows how to choose them.
She’s holdin’ leg wonderin’ how to feel them.
Would you get behind them if you could only find them?
She’s my baby, she’s my baby,
yeah, it’s alright.


She’s got hair down to her fanny.
She’s kinda jet set, try undo her panties.
Everytime she’s dancin’ she knows what to do.
Everybody wants to see if she can use it.
She’s so fine, she’s all mine,
girl, you got it right.


Legs, ZZ Top

    I’m in Boston learning about how to better my non-existent business – so I’m out this week for the game, the Friday evening bbq and the Scavenger hunt. I’m very sad about missing all of this. 😦

  8. I’m there this week, but cannot bring booze, as it will probably be nice and warm before anybody else gets there.
