Smithkey said...

Only reason TBN are ranked higher then BCBT is because they blew several calls while reffing our game in week 2. Bring back the hate!

Chandler said...

How did they do that? Isn't Nate the best ref ever ever?!?

Smithkey said...

Yeah Nate is a great ref but he blew a call pretty bad at first base that led to 2 runs scoring that inning. It is hard to bring the hate and be nice at the same time.

Litman said...

hate hate hate!!!

MJ said...

Still bitter about something that was almost two weeks ago lol. That's why BCBT is ranked where they are.

PS - I think we beat the Jammers twice. Back in like '97...I'll look for proof. It's back when Kim and Steve played...Al Lopez days

Chandler said...

MJ... I kinda figured you might have beaten them... because back then the Jammers were fun and even won a Crystal Pitcher. My biggest issue is... I fucking missed it! Haha

Nate Dawg said...

I am awesome when I am paying attention to the game. Thought I asked someone to watch 1st while I was fixing our lineup but I must have been mistaken. Sorry for grinding your gears BC!BT!

Chan we own the Jammers back in Al Lopez days. Since the BeerJam belt was created we have never won it though. Great work on the PR'ings. I think this week was the best! Frank Crow Laws and Curse of Jen Bryant hahahaha so hilar!

PS 6ft rims Chan...I'll be dunking all day...

FRANK said...

slack ass picks

trinihic said...

Don't threaten me with a good time Frank.. I will change my Supa pick.. :p

Litman said...

Super Bad
Shockers
Jammers
PBC
Ballics
BCBT...because we have a new team motto.

JD said...

SuperBad over Ligers....better hair, impressive use of gel.

Shockers over I'd Hit That.....I'd Hit That has spent so much time trying to incorporate their name into a cheer they forgot to score.

ToeJammers over Thee Beer Nuts....poor ref

YLLINAD over us.....They seem pretty serious last week and we typically kick people off our team if they even know the score. They want it more....but we have hotter women.

PhDivas over Alcoballics.....They have the fastest women. If their men contributed anything, they would be decent. Upset special.

Growlers over BCBT....Pretty sure I cost them the game on a close call. They had every right to bitch and moan, but let it go. Have fun with BCBT.

Chandler said...

SuperBad vs. Liggers
Nobody has more fun at kickball than Frank... when his team is winning a blow-out. This game will be no different. Supa eats 100 of their jello shots before stealing ours.

Shockers vs. IHT
Rob is trying to tell me that they're missing a lot of people this week. As long as they have enough to not forfeit, they'll win this game. IHT seems to be having fun though, so I'll hope for an upset. But Shockers probe IHT while refusing to admit when bad calls go their way.

Jammers vs. Nuts
The BeerJam is back. But do you really think TBN is excited about it? Jammers win in a blowout. Nate doesn't care.

Pitches vs. Fuck It
Deek's analysis is accurate. Fuck It wants victories more than they want hot girls.

PHD vs. Alcoballic Association of Retired Persons
I'd love to see PHD win this game. But the red guys will have an error-free contest. Ballics win while Dino continues to count down the weeks until he can quit the team too.

Brown Chicken! Big Tony! vs. Growlers
The chicken is cooked. Deep fried and served with a side of yellow rice. Growlers win, giving Teneille her third straight loss. In order to cure her post-game depression, Tenielle vigorously searches for white guys on Christian Mingle.

Nate Dawg said...

Correction Chan...I actually care when it comes to the Jammers. Really want to beat them...

Kyle said...

Superbad
Shockers
Toejammers
YLLINAD
Alcoballics
BCBT

Maria said...

Supa wins the game and the drunk contest.
Shockers
Beer Nuts, (cuz I don't think they have ever possesed the BeerJam belt.)
PBC? What team is that?
Not Ballics
Not BCBT or whatever they are now.

The Todd said...

Superbad (drink bet on score, Ligers = 2, Super = 2, terminator = 3)
Shockers
Toejammers
YLLINAD
Alcoballics
Growlers (I'm getting real pissed on always betting on this team and they lose, but I think they got enuff shutzpah)

FRANK said...

Picks:

Supa vs. Ligz

SuperRandoFunOnlyWhenUp will all be wearing goalie gloves and metal cleats tonight, will make non-alcoholic jello shots, and will falsely make a random lineup. We will also bring dogs and have them shit all over the fields, and instead of plastic hand clappers we will have kazoo's that when blowed make a boo'ing sound. We will then win, but wont have fun because we didnt win by ten runs, and will be stripped of our crystal pitcher from the previous season, because it was found out we forged the ballots. Chandler will man bunt, and I will be called a racist. Our team name will then be changed to team "Not Hype"

TJers vs. TBN

TJers have their chug cup filled to the top this week, and even use a 32 oz cup to make up for the previous weeks. Rubs pitches it granny style, signs an autograph for MJs kid, and even kicks a homerun for little Timmy whos in the hospital with a broken arm. He then runs a 10k to the hospital, signs Timmy's cast and gives him the game ball and a TJ jersey. NBC gets word of this and writes a feel good special about Rubs and his hunger for charity and goodwill. Jammers win Crystal Pitcher, and Rubs gets an honorary key to the city.

Shockers vs IHT

Shockers destroy IHT. IHT doesn't sign up next season.

PBC vs YLL (game of the week)

Drunk vs Sober
Hot girls vs Ugly
Fun vs Serious
Muscles vs Boney

Drunk Hot Fun Muscles somehow loses to Sober Boney Seriously Ugly. Kickball sometimes doesnt make sense. Sorry that was mean.
Luckily YLL doesn't check this blog. There's still hope for their crystal pitcher votes.

PHD vs Alco

PHD's take special care of their AARP patients. They feed them tapioka pudding and give them a nice warm sponge bath with epsom salts and oatmeal. While trying to put back in their dentures after a nice polident wash, Alco completely crosses the line and tries to lay one on the PHDs. They run for the hills and dont sign up next year. Alco wins by a smootch, but half their team passes away (calls it quits) before the next season.

Your Mom vs. Teachers Pet

Teachers pet brings back the ackward old guy and shed's the dreaded black "cox soccer/bnd" complex. They come back refreshed in their pistacho digs, and finally get a win. Tony throws a chair and knowlton steals the ball.

Nate Dawg said...

Actually making comments this week...

Supa over Ligers
I think this game will be closer than the experts believe. I think Huffman finally gets his shit together with the lineup/fielding positions but the Ligers come up just short in a 4-3 loss. Frank celebrates one of the greatest times he has ever had…basically b/c no Frank Crow Laws were broken

Shockers over IHT
Normally this type of warm-up game is scheduled in the first 2 weeks of the season but here the Shockers are playing a subdivision team in week 4. Rob sits the starters after the 1st inning since they are already up 5-0 and gets some much needed experience for his 2nd and 3rd team starters.

TJ’ers over TBN
Taking a page from Chan’s book and betting against my team. Obviously I would like to win this game but for some reason we always have a tough time with the Jammers, something always goes wrong. Probably has to do with how much I want to beat them…or bc god hates me…

Green team… over PBC
I don’t really know anyone on the green team so not much to say about them but I saw them play Supa week 1 and I was impressed with how much trouble Supa had with them, so gotta give them the nod over a middle of the road PBC team.

Ballics over PHDivas
I’m only keeping this pic if Gorecki isn’t playing 1st base or any other vital position, otherwise he is sure to commit costly errors and possibly break a hip. Mike; break out the visor, khaki’s, polo and chinese restaurant menu and just stay on the sidelines if you want to win. Hate hate hate.

Brown Chicken! Big Tony! over Growlers
BCBT is too talented to drop a 3rd straight loss, Tony will get his head out of his ass and actually make the routine catches in left, Smithkey & Littman will get back to driving in runs and Knowlton will be banned from the field so that the ball will stay in the field of play.

Chandler said...

I say this every week... but Frank is in the zone with commentary.

And yeah, I don't think YLLINaD reads this.

Caruso said...

super
shockers
jammers
pitches
ballics
growlers

MuffDaddy said...

@ nate Get my shit together with the lineup as in teach the Liggaz how to read their names on the little miniature drawing of the kickball field or count which inning it is? Shit playa, us Liggaz dont need to read or count. We play by instinct

JD said...

Well played Frank..and we appreciate your team lending us clothes for our South Tampa Douchebag theme last week.

I am getting pissed off that Pitches Be Crazy (confirmed that is our name this week) is not getting any consideration in the early polls for the Crystal Cup. This Boise State $hit is getting old.
1) We're showing up every week at the bar bribing other teams with alcohol...some of which actually came in glass cups.
2) We have the most gingers in the league
3) While the rest of the league is recycling Teneille, we're bringing in fresh talent.
4) Maria doesn't know who we are???? Our front line averages 6'4" 305lbs and we're dressed in orange....do we really blend in?
5) 3/4 of our team works in the liquor industry and even their co-workers think they have a drinking problem.
6) We've had the most themes banned (Mexican Appreciation Day, A Tribute to Gang Violence, Whores)

Sorry we aren't in your little circle jerk of friendship. We'll just play with ourselves.

FRANK said...

When all else fails, the "Tony Throws a Chair" line usually works, kind of like when you tell a shitty joke followed by "And then I found ten bucks"

Florian said...

Supa...but Chan steals jello shots and dances around telling everyone
Shock Top.....They might be looking ahead to next wek but it doesn't matter
Green Team....They just want to win so bad
Ballics....Not even Gorecki can screw this up
Growlers....but Litman decides to go streaking again

Chandler said...

Deeks...

You raise a valid point. The problem is, you have to overcome THEE Beer Nuts voting for themselves, and the Ballics throwing away votes (yeah, I went there).

But from now on I'm on the PbC bandwagon. And I'll probably just paste what you wrote into the blog if you don't do it.

FRANK said...

I gave you props Deeks, You muscley hot fun drunk. I just think you guys will lose, because I know that YLL is pretty good, and not fun. You guys are always on Field 3 so we never get to see you guys play, but I appreciate the douchey gel head comment. Fucker

FRANK said...

I do like the Tenielle comment tho

Florian said...

Forgot one game. Jammers win the BeerJam belt again.

Brie said...

It's only taken me 3 weeks to remember to get on this before 4:00...

Superbad
Shockers
Jammers
YLLINAD
Ballics
BCBT

Chandler said...

Frank... with the "Frank Layout" you shouldn't have an excuse not to go talk to people on field 3. That's why you suggested it! Haha

FRANK said...

lol very tru. My dumb team always lines up way down the left field line and wont move down. Maximized fun and mingling! Ill try to get closer this week. Its usually hard to get close when you have a late game cuz ppl dont move after their games

FRANK said...

who is that grandpa in Bries picture hugging her?

FRANK said...

can we do a vote each week on the weakest commentary? My vote goes to flo this week who didn't "bring it" and forgot a matchup

FRANK said...

maybe weakest commentary buys best commentary a beer?

trinihic said...

Weak Chandler... You can't even spell my name...

Natalie said...

I won't be there tonight... but...

Superbad
Shockers
Jammers
YLLINAD
Ballics
BC!BT!

Chandler said...

"I" before "E" except in Teneille... or clickeity clickeity!!!

Chandler said...

Christian Mingle = unlimited single white dudes

JD said...

I agree Frank. We may have stood a chance if it was an earlier game, but no way we're in playing shape by 8:30pm. They were coaching everyone on baserunning, where we tend to tell our new players it's legal to steal and to never tag up. It's worth the out to watch them make that walk of shame.

Nate Dawg said...

@ Huffman...haha yeah your right, now you feel my pain on people not paying attention..."where am I playing?" After you just told them...

Nate Dawg said...

I agree Frank...Flo's comments were super weak...as of right now Flo owes Frank a drink. If your going to comment you better bring it! (Shit I just quoted Bring it On)

Smithkey said...

Same picks as Nate Dog. Sorry no
Commentary this week

Florian said...

I thought we were trying to get more people to comment, not less. I had to rush them as Chandler moved the due time to 3:30 and I wasn't sure if my meeting was going to go long that lasted till 3.

Alison said...

SuperBad

FRANK said...

out of the clouds flo

Nate Dawg said...

All I hear are excuses Flo...

Florian said...

I can't help it if I'm not as witty as you Frank. I'd lose every week. Guess I just won't even make an attempt at commentary anymore. Tell you what, I'll steal one of Maria's pudding shots for you.

FRANK said...

These picks that we make here just dont manifest themselves in the 11th hour. Countless hours are spent in the classroom studying stats, trends, and funny limericks days, even weeks before gameday flo. You think I got to be this way from winging some crap on a piece of paper, or picking "C" every time on a scantron sheet? Fagetaboutit. You think my team thinks Im a loser cuz I go home to Sandra every night? Fagetaboutit. Give me your arm flo... Your other arm... Now write damnit!

bull said...

Bwahahahaahhahahaha funny stuff Frank!!
