My Thoughts

Prior to our epic game-of-the-week battle, the Ligers and NKOTB had to ref a less interesting contest between the Shockers and BnD. Here are my thoughts on that:

1) BnD plays angry. It's this really intense competitive atmosphere that is totally a mind-fuck when the home plate ref is a Giant Panda. I honestly think most of those kids I've talked to outside of the game are pretty cool... but during the game... shit balls.
2) I blame all negative feelings towards BnD on the fact that they have a handful of Seminoles on their team. It's the same reason why nobody likes THEE Beer Nuts.
3) The Giant Panda (Liger Joe recently discovered his mom was a Brown Bear) did a good job reffing the game. The few close calls were quickly discussed, a decision was made, and we thankfully all moved on with our lives.
4) The Shockers probably ruined their chance at a season title (just like they did in the flip-cup finals). It was a good run... but my sleeper team is now dead.
5) Phil caught that ball.

So after that nonsense... the Game of the Week took place:

1) The Ligers would have lost if NKOTB could ever field a full team.
2) Brooke is ruthless. After one of her players threw out his back... she forced him to lie down in the outfield so they wouldn't be short too many people. He cried in agony for like 20 minutes while she mercilessly cackled while pitching.
3) Liger Chris kicked a grand slam, and also saved two runs with an impressive finger-tip catch to end the game. So basically... the victory was his doing.

And the rest of the night:

1) Weak kickball turnout at MacD's.
2) Lame that the flip-cup tables weren't out until later in the night after we asked like 10 times.
3) Lindsey P. from NGtW isn't as bad at flip-cup as my previous Power Rankings said.
4) Nate and Rollo owe the following people one drink: Marla, Brie and Yellabird.
5) I'm never picking TBN again.
6) Paulie has a sister... and she got all the looks.
7) I think we scared off the TBO reporter when she walked into our Terminator conversation about sending your dad back in time to bone your mom.
8) Dollar Wells need to make that their official name next season.
9) If you don't have Halloween party plans... GO TO JARED and KAREN'S PARTY! Comment if you need the Evite sent to you.

Ok... it's almost time for my Friday trip to the Wing House. Have a good afternoon.

LOL! Agreed Paul-IE's sister Amy has all the looks and I wasnt going to pick TBN the rest of the season either but we play NKOTB...and at the same time I am scared to pick TBN still.

BnD plays angry when you rattle them before the first pitch is thrown by playing balls and strikes.

Giant Panda was a good ref except on 1 call.

And if Phil caught that ball, the ref who was closest on 2nd (chandler) should have made the Out call. If so a run doesnt score and we win that game. Can we file protests on your bad no call to allow a run to score?

You sleeper team isnt dead yet. we can get help to win regular season. if not next stop is tournament finals...

Phil was closer to 3rd than 2nd. Which is why I conceeded to their call. I'm not sure a run scored that inning. Either way... Good game. Go gators.
