WAKA Bayshore Season Party

Ever feel like the grass is always greener? Well, it's not.  Our memories get jumbled due to things like Proactive Interference, giving us a skewed view of our reality today from constantly holding on to an already skewed view of yesterday.

It's complicated.  But let me tell you about the WAKA Bayshore season party that took place last Saturday.

As you can see by this Facebook event, they hosted a party/pub crawl at MacDinton's.  Huh?  How can it be a pub crawl at only one bar?  Well, they "piggy backed" onto MacDinton's already planned "Spring Break Crawl."  The rumor is as follows:
  • The actual party lasted from 2pm to 5pm.  During that time Bayshore members got free Red Stripe beer... which was also provided to everyone else at the bar from 4pm to 5pm.
  • Flip-Cup Tournament was supposed to be at 2:30pm... in broad daylight... but I'm not even sure one took place.
  • After 5pm, the kickballers could go on the Spring Break Crawl and pay for drinks along with the masses of idiots who still attend these events.
Insiders tell me the turnout was horrendous. One member of the new team Rocky Tops said it was so pathetic, they're interested in moving over to GOKickball next season.

I hesitate to report all this, because I'm not sure what kind of party GKB is setting up for us.  It's ridiculous to think we'll have 16 kegs and food like we used to, just based on league size alone.  But I hope they take note that a shitty season party IS enough to make people want to quit a league.  Whereas an awesome party with free beer flowing late into the night will cause people to tell all their friends, enemies and frenemies about how wonderful kickball is socially.

Alas... I just work for DPT, so I report things as I hear them.  And today I heard that WAKA Bayshore threw the most pathetic season party in their storied history.  Ironically, Breaker is doing an actual gathering at Wings Gone Wild later this month.  I guess that division is now their pride and joy.

I can say that I am a bit disappointed that I didn't go to the party, maybe that's why it was a bust. None the less, I can't wait to arrive at GKB party and top off a stellar karaoke performance by decimating my WAKA shirt before setting it ablaze and getting kicked out of the joint....
Don't know if I like the new DPT Logo, looks like you're selling out man...
