Picks - Week 1

**PICKS ARE CLOSED!! (5 min early just because)**

It's time for the weekly picks! Here's how it works:

Look at the schedule and comment who you think will win each game this week. After the games on Thursday, the person (or people) with the most wrong picks owe 1 beer to the person (or people) with the fewest wrong picks. No, you can not pick teams to tie.

Based on previous seasons, losers usually owe about 3 drinks.... but we've seen it as high as 10+.  Most players won't win or lose anything.

There may be a prize at the end of the season for the person with the highest % correct... but they have to make picks every week to be eligible.  Good luck!



And like a true dick, Gorecki texted in his picks after the deadline. We're gonna let that slide since we don't want the AARP on our ass.  He picks: "Supa, Alco, TBN, KBT and PHD."

Man if feels good to be back making my weekly picks and killing time at work. I am pretty sure I have never had to buy drinks and don't plan on starting this season. So here are you weekly winners.

SuperBad vs YLLINAD
SuperBad is the preseason AP #1 and with good reason. They have added a season veteran Flo and the Mikey aka the Terminator who can single handedly lock down the outfield. Superbad wins

Shockers vs Alcoballics
I am going to go ahead and label this one as the Game of the Week. Shockers have shown they were able to overcome mediocracy and almost win it all while the Ballics have been the most consistent team through the years. I think this will be the season the Ballics start to struggle without their fearless leader and best player Angie Geiger (daughter of Judy Geiger). Purple wins.

Brown Chicken Brown Teneille vs THEE Beer Nuts BCBT makes it's return back to the big leagues with a new name, a new color, and some old assholes. TBN finally acquired the daughter of Judy Geiger but even her elite kickball skills will not be enough to elevate TBN from below average. BCBT wins and Jacob is better then you.

Kickball Team vs Ligers Kickball Team has topped "Bye Week" for worst team ever but I am sure they probably think it is funny. Ligers will be around .500 again but will win this one for their spiritual leader Bull who will be leaving soon on "Melitary Leave"

PHDivas vs I'd Hit That
Do not really know shit about either of these teams so I am going with the PHDivas

Recap: SuperBad, Shockers, BCBT, Ligers, PHD

SuperBad vs. ISYTDLN.ICOoTQaHSMWHP
Flo-Rida is back after taking a season off of kickball to hunt down the remaining Jews in hiding. Stephanie B. brings her exhausting team name back to GKB, and will calmly try to explain to Flo that the war ended in 1945. They'll then conduct a "peace treaty," in which Steph trades Frank a victory for two bar tabs. SuperBad gets the win due to this exchange, but Florian gets angry and quits, citing his moral compass. Gorecki then joins SuperBad.

Shockers vs. Alcoballics
The Ballics have too many new people, and too many females on their roster. Since it's week one... they all show up. Shockers win and Duc Lite (Cong) fails to kick a ball out of the infield.

BC!BT! vs. TBN
Upset Special of the week... and a pick that is going to probably cost me some beers. Beer Nuts win 2-1.

Kickball Team vs. Ligers
I can't top "Melitary Leave." Even if I reference Bull traveling far distances to burst his oil pipes. Kickball Team still wins though.

PHDivas vs. I'd Hit That
Both new teams face off in a "Welcome to the original (and still the best) Bayshore Division" game. Glad to have you kids. PHDivas win in a blow-out.

As the reigning picks champion, I feel like I have to defend my title even though I'm no longer in the league. I figure a nice trip across the street to collect beers should be a nice respite from MacD's and a good chance to see my old pals from GKB. Of course, now that I'm so out of touch with GKB, I'll more likely be walking across the street to shell out 10 bucks instead of letting free alcohol give me a false sense of happiness before leaving me dejected and ill the next morning. Alcohol, how I love thee. On to the picks!

SuperBad vs. f

Once again, the mishmash of expatriated Shockers, I'd Kick Thaters, and whoever else has five minutes to say their kickball team name have joined the league associated with DPT picks. I've decided to simply call this team 'f' because that's the easiest thing for me to type. It's much more efficient than practically rewriting War and Peace, which is what their actual team name requires. I'm not sure who f has on the roster this fall, but their leadoff guy is legit, and if you catch them right they can play some defense. I'm going to go upset here and take f to win over a rusty Superbad team that apparently added Flo.


Shockers vs. Alcoballics

BREAKING NEWS: Old Man Gorecki will get an evening pass and a shuttle ride from Canterbury Towers to make the game and drop some mad rhymes and balls. After a first inning hip injury to OMG, which will require another replacement, the Ballics are able to play how they used to when Gorecki would miss a lot of games and win easily.

BC!BT! vs. TBN

Smithkey's adding some solid commentary to the picks, so I'm thinking he's nearing midseason form already. Perhaps BCBT has been practicing? TBN has been practicing nothing but drinking and hiding out together. And if they still have Chuckers, he's either in Baltimore or Chicago based on his facebook account. Chuckers: PLEASE STOP POSTING PICTURES OF BALTIMORE. IT'S NOT THAT INTERESTING OF A CITY UNLESS YOU'RE WATCHING THE WIRE. BCBT to win.

Kickball Team vs. Ligers

I think kickball team is the old burnt orange team, right? Either way, I'm taking the Ligers to win because Chandler didn't, and I'm picking every team he hasn't picked thus far, so I might as well keep it up.

PHDivas vs. I'd Hit That

Damn. All that talk about picking the team Chandler doesn't pick goes out the window because one team name is too close to I'd Kick That. Damn you, lack of foresight! Doctorettes win.

Jack from Off Constantly said...

BTW Chandler, where did the picks results go? Why is there no archive of my greatness?

Chandler said...

I just delete that stuff after the season. It's probably mentioned in the season picks recap somewhere.

PHDivas

According to FB Super is doing random..."random"

Ballics played kb for three hours Saturday...no shade, middle of the day hot! No wonder so many players are bolting from that team, they're all insane!

BTBC has Smithkey, Knowlton, Tony, and Litman...it's such a glorious train wreak waiting to happen!

Remember YOU can't say Ligger cause YOU aren't one. That's our word!

I gave the PHDivas a lesson on the rulebook over the summer, pretty sure a couple of their girls hate me.

FRANK said...

New Season! New Picks! Hyped up for tonight.

Here we go:

Supa vs You looka lika man

Supa's going random kicking order the whole season, so this game could be close. I think YLL is a pretty good team. Looking forward to seeing our new people tonight in new jerseys. Flo goes from hiding in the attic to working for the SS, and Mikey, AKA The Silver Surfer, looks to have some fun for a change. Both will definitely be difference makers this season.
Supa wins 4-2.

Shockjocks vs Alconewbs

After a restructuring of players, both new and retired, Alco looks to forge a new identity in the league. With the Asian invasion in full force on this squad, look for a resurgance of fun, yet mediocre skill. I think Rob is looking to ride the playoff wave from last season's championship loss and has been sporting the grimace purple v-necks in the offseason. His devotion to team marketing will prevail as his squad starts to see his "vision" for the future, reflecting through his male patterned bald spot.

BCBT vs TBN

Mjs back and they're gonna be in trouble, hey na hey na, Irish left.
Irish moves, and leaves a wake of stanky cheddar, hey na hey na, The Beer Nuts Lose. Yeahhhhh, we know that Nates been cryin', yeahhhhh we know that Nates been tryin, but what made you think that you're gonna win some games now, wwahhh ohh wahh ohh, crush some brew.
BCBT wins without the BT

KBT vs Ligers

Triple Deeks' been on the recruiting tip in the offseason, but had unfortunately run out of funds by the time it came to making a team name. Experience vs. Brut Newbs in this one. Could be interesting, but I gotta go Brut over Chan's self loathing team strategy and experience.
The lame name wins against the Downers

PHVD's vs Lemme hit it

If these teams are as sexy and scandalous as their names suggest, ie. naughty nurses running around through a sprinkler with wifebeaters on, this game could be pretty good. PH-VD's let them hit it, leading to a nasty venerial disease Magic Johnson can't even shake. Diva's get the win in a lose lose situation.

Chandler said...

Lots of great commentary today. Frank's analysis of the final game that nobody knows about is pretty good.

Nate Dawg said...

Sorry not much commentary in me today but loved reading everyone elses. Great work. Love being underestimated. I will put my money where my mouth is and if TBN loses tonight I will buy 2 drinks for the winners. So yeah I am guaranteeing a win.
