ESPN’s GoKickball Gameday



Fowler - In misty Tampa, when the fog clears and night falls, kickball's biggest stage comes to life. There is a lot at stake tonight. The countdown clock is ticking. 12 hours till kickoff of a high-end collision with conference and tournament implications up for grabs. Tonight it's the Shockers vs. Superbad.
Announcer - Welcome to GoKickball Gameday, pouring drinks by Yard Of Ale
Fowler - Good Morning Kickball Fans and Welcome to GoKickball Gameday. Alongside Desmond Howard, Kirk Herbstreit and Lee Corso; I'm Chris Fowler. We have 4 great games with a lot at stake for all teams tonight. We will to get to those shortly, but first who is on upset alerts this week fellas?
Desmond - I'm concerned with the Growlers defense having allowed 26 runs. I think I'd Hit That upsets them for their first win tonight.
Corso - PH Divas will have problems with the Brown Chicken Brown Teneille defense, but PH Divas finds a way to win this. PH Divas upsets Brown Chicken Brown Teneille

Fowler - Starting off the Slate today is the ToeJammers vs. Pitches Be Crazy.
Desmond - I have little confidence in The ToeJammers, but less confidence in Pitches Be Crazy. ToeJammers get it done today.
Herbstreit - I really think the ToeJammers come back tonight. They allowed 27 runs so far. Where is their psyche? Can Ruben get them back up to still believe they can have a magical season? I think their defense plays well tonight and they put up some runs on offense. I like the ToeJammers to win this game in old school ToeJammers style.
Corso - Not so fast my friend! Pitches Be Crazy wins this game. The ToeJammers are weak, and Pitches Be Crazy Outscores them tonight.

Fowler - Moving on we have 4 teams, 2 games, 1 conference lead at stake. The Tomfoolery Conference will be reshaped tonight. Can both 3-1 teams win and pull head in the conference title race, or will the 2-2 teams continue to make this a 4 horse race. First up it's the 3-1 You Look Like vs. the 2-2 Alcoballics.
Desmond - All the buzz this season has been about Superbad and The Shockers at the top, but to me You Look Like is flying under the radar like a stealth. They beat the Alcoballics tonight and move up into the Elite.
Corso - You Look Like has the 2nd best defense only allowing 7 runs in 4 games. I see no way The Alcoballics can compete with You Look Like tonight. You Look Like wins its.
Herbstreit - I don't think the Alcoballics are that good, but I do think the Alcoballics win the game tonight. They have too much pride after the way their defense started. They turn it around tonight and move into a possible first place tie.

Fowler - Now for everyone's favorite game, the 3-1 Thee Beer Nuts vs. the 2-2 Ligers in The Beer Olympics
Herbstreit - In past years I would pick Thee Beer Nuts here and they would let me down. But this is a changed year for them. They won the BeerJam last week and I think they follow that up with a Beer Olympic Sweep. Thee Beer Nuts win both the Olympics and the Game, despite the Ligers best efforts via Skype to have Bull participating in some of the Beer Chugging events.
Desmond - I want to see how both of these teams respond tonight. Can Thee Beer Nuts keep up the momentum from last week's huge win, Can the Ligers rally around their close 1 Run Lose to Superbad. I think both teams will win several Olympic events putting pressure on the other team's defense with extra advantages for that inning. Which team will capitalize on those advantages? I think Thee Beer Nuts with some great play as of late will take the most of their advantages and win both the game and Olympics.
Corso - I give you two a Good Pick and a double NOT SO FAST MY FRIENDS! The Beer Nuts are really hard to beat in the Olympics events but it's not impossible. Yo!, I'll give myself a NOT SO FAST MY FRIENDS! Without Bull it is impossible for the Ligers to beat Thee Beer Nuts in the Olympic Events. However it's on the field where the Ligers have the edge, their defense will corral and contain Thee Beer Nuts tonight. This is a split pick; Thee Beer Nuts win the Olympics while the Ligers win the game.

Fowler - Now for our showdown game. Both teams are looking forward to this one tonight. The toughest test of the season for both The Shockers & Superbad.
Desmond - The pressure is on both teams tonight and the players feel it. I think Superbad steps it up a notch tonight, using that 3-1 defeat last year to the Shockers to fuel their fire. Superbad wins it and gets their payback.
Herbstreit - Everyone is looking forward to seeing the result of this game. I think its 2 great defenses and 2 offenses trying to make plays. The offensive and defensive numbers are very similar for both teams. I think this will be similar to that epic game played 2 seasons ago which was a defensive standoff ending in a 0-0 tie. These defenses are just too good; it's another 0-0 tie tonight.
Corso - You have 2 of the top 3 defenses vs. the top 2 offenses tonight. This is going to be a low, low scoring game. That's the secret. Both teams have won 4 in a row, but only The Shockers win 5 in a row.



Fowler - Enjoy your kickball Thursday
