Week 3 Picks

Since I gave Jess a hassle for not doing picks week 1 and then ignored picks in week 2, I figure I owe it to DPT to do picks in week 3.  Yes, it's only an hour before the deadline and no they won't be funny.  I plan on owing myself beers at Y of A, whenever I actually show up for post kickball beers.

I will not, however, be doing any excel work, tabulating, or fancy coloration of cells for this.  Only presenting you with my extraordinarily uneducated picks.

Game 1: TBN v Growlers

I didn't get to see TBN play in week 1, but I do see they lost to a team called Pitches Be Cray.  That's not a good sign when playing the perennial asshole powerhouse squad in black.  I'm going to assume the Growlers dominate this game.  What to watch for: Nate's temper tantrum when a Growler takes a walk.

Game 2: Great Balls of Fire v PBC

Two teams I know absolutely nothing about.  It's tough to make jokes about nothing.  6-5 GBoF, I guess.

Game 3: Rikickulous v OAF

OAF is not good at kickball, but I really dislike names of teams that just throw "kick" in there somewhere so people know you're referencing a kickball team.  It's really dumb.  Tough choice between two giant sucks in the same game.  OAF wins, I guess.  Making picks used to be fun...

Game 4: Ballics v Superbad

Making Ballics jokes was a lot easier with Gorecki in town.  Fortunately for us, we know there's a little Gorecki on the way, at least according to a facebook post that was quickly deleted.  Good luck deleting this, Gorecki (who probably still checks in here on occasion)!  Superbad wins.

Game 5: Ligers v FreeBallers

Apparently we're doing a theme game for this one.  Football players and cheerleaders.  Very creative.  I know absolutely nothing about the FreeBallers, but I think I'd be pretty uncomfortable just letting my junk swing in the breeze under some gym shorts on the kickball field.  At the strip club on the other hand...  Ligers win.

Picks Week 2

We all know Rain will be the real winner this week (deja vu anyone?) but you're probably bored as shit at your crappy desk job (or maybe that's just me) so make some picks.  For all the new lurkers out there (if they exist anymore) this is where you write funny shit at the expense of others and make people laugh.  We'll (maybe) keep tabs of winning Pickers at the end of the season and give you some sort of awesome prize. And by awesome I mean terrible.



Week 2 - Power Rankings

Power Rankings

I told myself I was done with this shit, but 83% of the blog's dedicated followers insisted (yep 2 people).  Here's to wasting my time!

Kickball Drama



It turns out that drama in kickball is pretty wide spread, and all leagues have chain emails like The Ligers. A few things here...I really enjoyed that their team names are the Pigeons and the Pandas, we really should have an all animal team name season. Instead of team captains this league has coaches. I also enjoyed that he referenced Ultimate Survival Alaska since I enjoy that show. 

To quote Willie from Ultimate Survival Alaska, “why do you go out and test yourself because you can, why do men climb mountains because they are there…if you have to ask these question you will never understand the answer in the first place”. That is how I feel right now…

See Smooty get robbed!!!

This actually happened about a month ago.  Some kids ran into my garage and stole my roommate's bike.  I was actually there when it happened but if I remember correctly I was super hungover and didn't even know it happened until the next day when we realized that the bike was gone.

After a week had gone by, I was talking with my neighbor and told him about it and he said that he had a motion-sensor video camera that was directed at his front yard (driveway).  He checked it out and this is the crime in progress.  This is footage from his house (we share a mailbox, so it kind of picks up what's going on in part of my front yard).

This is the first video that show the kids rolling up on their bikes and scoping the place out.  They notice my open garage and go in for the kill.  Once they're all out of screen the video stops.

The motion-sensor camera picks up the perpetrator on his way out.
 
 
We showed this to the police, but of course they have better things to do than worry about a stolen bike.
