(The) Todd Had a Birthday Party; Rest of Team Stayed Home to Murder Kittens

Todd, the social butterfly of a notoriously cliquey and axe body sprayed Balls and Dolls team, was generous enough to host a high quality birthday party this past Friday. Sandwiches from Wright's Deli, keg, drinking games, and a quality PA system that led to both Bull and Ernie scaring every dog in a 10 block radius with live karaoke; all the ingredients were there for a memorable time. Todd, Rosey, and Chandler even broke out the guitars to provide the soundtrack. One thing was missing though, any member, other than Todd himself, of Balls and Dolls. Apparently the appeal of putting on the sequined t-shirt, applying some self tanner and mildly drugging the local talent at The Kennedy was too much for any of the fellas on Balls and Dolls to stop by the party. Hell, Todd's sister was there and she lives in Illinois. Bayshore was well represented though, a diverse group of kickballers were in attendance to hold a master class in drinking game execution.

As you can see from the break down, there was a college recruitment brochure level of diversity at the party. Unlike his teammates, Todd has the ability to socialize with other people and not instantly make them think "asshole". Man, is this guy on the wrong team. Here's a pie chart. Enjoy.
Well done Todd, thanks for hosting. Seriously, you should join a different team.

EDIT: Updated the attendance chart and added an extra one because I felt like it.

Awesome breakdown... we need one of these for every get together!

random BnD guy said...

It was strategic. Our reputation was getting soft. We needed something to make everyone hate us again... even if that meant sacrificing one of our own.

Alison said...

This was FOR SURE a high quality party! Todd was an excellent host and I think fun times were had by all (except maybe Plumber Bull and Plumber Chris for a stint). Loved the yard games too!

Another go-round later this year Todd?!?!? :)

Griff said...

Excellent breakdown...but the party was Friday night...not Saturday

Chandler said...

Awesome post. Analysis always gives me a stiffy. I fixed your Friday/Saturday issue.

And yes... thanks Todd. I got 185 pics to go through and will post them on the FaceBook soon.

Florian said...

One of those Erica's is on IKT so we actually had three people there. Excellent analysis though. The charts are great.

Rosey said...

Thanks Todd for a totally kick ass party, I had a blast! To correct the historical record, there were at least two BCBC's present.

Good times!

Chandler said...

is that 2nd BCBC person Ernie

Rosey said...

Yup Ernie. Although he's only played in two games so far, he did pay for his T-shirt so I think that qualifies.

Ryan said...

Could have used the following charts.

1. Time spent by Mel being the dealer and getting fucked in relation to everyone else.

2. Inappropriate declarations made. With regards to who said them and the frequency at which they were said. (chandler)

Ryan said...

But yes for the short while I was there. It was a pretty sweet little gathering. Good job Todd.

Chandler said...

I only said one (maybe three) inappropriate things that night...

EGuthrie said...

FYI Party go-ers: that party was brought to life because of one glorious season on Debauchery during summer. That's called team comradery. Learn it. Love it. Live it. Well at least about 5 of the people in attendance were from that team....we need a new chart.

and it's "Le" Todd.

Chandler said...

Debauchery? Are you referring to the Big Guava team who lost 5-0 to Off Constantly in the tournament finals?

Sure. Props to your minor-league team who knows how to party.

EGuthrie said...

that would be it chandler. I was not commnending our glorious kickball abilities...rather our just all around greatness. but glad you noticed.

Brian L. said...

Todd also made it out to the Rays game with a few of us on Saturday after hosting said party on Friday. Way to exceed the social expectations from other BnD players.

Ryan said...

Team camaraderie*.

Learn it. Love it. Live it.

Maria said...

wish I could have been there! Sorry I was out of town! I hope this didn't exceed my party? I didn't get a breakdown of teams! haha

Chandler said...

I referenced your all around greatness with those props I doled out. Hell, my team should probably be sent to Guava for a few seasons.

And speaking of the Rays... a bunch of us (9) are going on Wednesday. We have one ticket left, I think. Anyone want it ($9)?

EGuthrie said...

Spelling was not my best subject. Clearly. Thank you ryan. I shall do all of which you stated.

Brian L. said...

I'd take that ticket chandler!

The Todd said...

Great guests = killer times! yeah that bar chart definitely needs revision to reflect 2 strong showings of BC!BC!, and ballics should be dropped by 1 attendee as Teneille was technically not present for half the time, and probably can't remember the other half. add in some Breaker division attendees and it looks impressive (although lame due to Breaker rep.). Having so much pull to unite the tribes of WAKA Bayshore & Breaker, I feel the power growing. I do believe the prophency is true, I perhaps am the chosen one to lift BnD reputation, a feat once considered impossible.
Another go-around later? Hellz Yez, Dirty Thirty-1 plans in the making arleady.

Chandler said...

There were Breaker people at the party? Odd... I didn't see anyone dressed as Paladins or Elves...

Florian said...

If Brian ends up not being able to go, I'll take the ticket.

Chandler said...

Still waiting on confirmation that the ticket is available. Regardless... go anyway and worst-case just buy a $10 ticket from the box office and sit with us. As you know... the stadium is empty.

Because it's in St. Pete.

Brian L. said...

Hey Flo...Uh...turns out there is a ticket available.

Alison said...

+1 more for the Alcoballics. Juno, Teneille, and myself.

Rosey said...

Haha, love the new graph. One of the funnier parts of the night was walking into the bathroom and seeing Plumber Bull and Plumber Chris trying to "plunge" the puke filled sink with a straw.

Chandler said...

The best quote of the night... after they unclogged the chunks of salad from the sink, it sprayed all over Bull. He looks at the sink, then looks at himself, and says:

"At what cost?"

Florian said...

Didn't even know that happened. Then again, I'm glad I didn't see it.

Rosey said...

Haha... that was after I went and got a plunger and went Braveheart on the sink.

I either fixed the clog... or it all splashed out onto Bull's shorts.

At what cost... hahaha

Kat said...

Between Rosey's rendition of Tom Petty's "Won't Back Down" and the 37 games of cut-throat flip cup, this was a bad-ass party! Props to Todd's parents for gettin it on 30 years ago!
