Growlers vs IHT
Growlers have the easiest schedule for the rest of the season and it starts with a bye week Thur. Don't confuse their yelling no fun catcher with their other female catcher who was constantly in a power stance. Growlers power stance their way to victory.

Ballics vs ABCDEFG
With rumors of Gorecki taking the mound for the Ballics it looks like they are the favorite pick for the bad kickball pitcher league this week. I still don't know a thing about ABCDEFG and have not had a chance to watch them play but apparently they are for real.

Brown Chicken! Big Tony! vs PHDivas
I do not know much about the Divas except they are not very good at kickball and do not like to drink. Basically they fail at life. Meanwhile the asshole team is coming off two tough games and looks forward to getting back in the win column tonight. BC!BT! covers the spread and wins by over 5 runs.

Ligers vs TBN
I think TBN have been a good Cinderella team this season but are still over ranked. I have seen this team play every game but 1 and am not impressed. TBN win the olympics but the Ligers win the game. BREAK THEM UP! BREAK THEM UP! BREAK THEM UP!

TJ's vs PCP
TJ's are off to a rather disappointing start to the season. After not being able to win the championship in KBS it looks like it might be time to rebuild. I only see the TJ's having enough gas in the tank for one more win and this is the week.

SuperBad vs Shockers (ESPN game of the week)

The two best teams in the league square off in a battle of the unbeaten. The Shockers are the real deal and will finish the regular season undefeated before being upset in the playoffs.

Nate Dawg said...

Are you fucking serious Chan? Did Alison blow you to get the Ballics ranked so high????

Chandler said...

Maybe...

Nate Dawg said...

Ok I'm cool with that then...

Chandler said...

And I don't make the rankings. The DPT Apple IIGS computer does!

I turned if off... blew into the floppy drive... and booted it up again. Seems the rankings changed slightly.

Nate Dawg said...

Nice! When in doubt, re-boot...

MJ said...

Are you fucking serious Chan? Did Nate blow you to get the Beer Nuts ranked so high????
(Good job)

MJ said...

Ok, now we're over rated lol.

Chandler said...

Lol. It's been an odd season.

3c7dff36-8c74-11e0-a26e-000bcdcb471e said...

Whoa!! I'm that "fiesty catcher" (I am fiesty - I blame my Hispanic side). And I admittedly got even fiestier as I saw our lead dwindling but I NEVER said ANYTHING like that..and I've never heard anyone on our team say anything close to that either...we like being in this league! I'm really not sure where this came from - I never said anything ill-willed towards the other team or the league. Guess this is how rumors get started.

3c7dff36-8c74-11e0-a26e-000bcdcb471e said...

And now I just saw the comment about being no fun haha - guess my fiesty-ness is catching me quite the reputation!
-Jess

Chandler said...

Jess... that's just the quote we got. But since you're more creditable than that person, we're gonna have to change that Power Ranking comment. ;)

Smithkey said...

Dear 3c7dff36-8c74-11e0-a26e-000bcdcb471e, I don't really know you so when I say you are no fun it does not mean anything. Just cracking a joke. You did seem pretty pissed in the last inning of last weeks game though when your team was in no danger of losing and just having fun.

JD said...

Holy crap that YYLINAD team kicked the crap out of us...and the victory really meant a lot to them. Pretty sure they had trophies made. I had to horse collar Justin and Seiler to keep them from beating the hell out of them for argueing a call with a 10 run lead in the last inning. I was proud of our "We're not them!!" chant and Brittany telling them she wouldn't sleep with any of them and she's a slut.

Chandler said...

Waaaaiiiiit wait wait wait...

So Brittany said to them: "I'm a slut and I wouldn't sleep with any of you!"

?!?!?!?!?

hahahahahahahaha gotta go on the inebriated insights

JD said...

I may be paraphrasing, editing and completely making that up....but yes she said it.

bull said...

Sluts do it for the money right?

trinihic said...

Growlers
Ballics
BCBT
TBN
Jammers
Supa

Chandler said...

Nice commentary, Tobago

Nate Dawg said...

Way to bring it Trini...

trinihic said...

Some of us work... and I'm tired.. sue me!

Chandler said...

Was Tubal Uriah Butler too "tired" when he rallied his fellow Trinidadians and led labor riots in order to obtain better working conditions, increased wages and an end to racism?

No. He wasn't.

FRANK said...

wheres your commentary chan?

Kyle said...

Growlers because it's not possible to lose to IHT...even Team Fab would have dominated this group.

ABCDEFG because the last time I picked against the Ballics, they got all types of pissy and won the game in spite of me.

BC!BT! because their shenanigans are cheeky and fun

TBN because Nate does care and will be partying at Thee Dollhouse afterwards

Jammers because their shenanigans are cruel and tragic

Superbad because they have SuperFlo and all of his magical powers

The only thing that YYLIN to Argue is going to argue is that you guys are getting no slack for crying innings 5 -7.

And the play in the last inning - which was whether or not it was an out 'if the outfielder catches a foul ball' - we didn't even argue, a Liger went and explained a very basic rule to the umpire. Trust me - by that time - we couldn't take any more tears.

As far as running up the score - last season we were called "Drunk Again and Looking to Score" - we never scored so a name change was completely in order. I think this is our first 10+ run, no fun, ass-kickin' game... we will bring our trophy this week.

I can't believe our guy who played in socks who got an in-field home-run didn't make this blog... definitely the best play of the game.

Chandler said...

Growlers vs. Tickles
El Gruñones are going to have the time of their lives this week. Be nice to Team Tickles though. They have some fun people... who just can't catch a kickball. Los gruñones ganar el juego!

Licks vs. Fuck It
People keep asking me what OMG stands for. It's Old Man Gorecki, a term coined by Jack from Off Constantly. I'm trying to promote it in his absence since he's not allowed to post on our blog anymore. Anyway, Fuck It came to the bar last week en masse. In fact, the bar was quite crowded at about 9:45pm. Yet someone in the Frankbox decided to complain that it was dead. If you aren't having fun at YoA, it's probably because you aren't a fun person. And that's ok... you're allowed to be boring. But count the number of people there this week, and then imagine what that bar would look like if we went somewhere else. Ghost Town! Tumbleweaves [sic]! Hell, about 8 WAKA kids left MacD's last week to drink with us. All of them said their after-game experience was weak and most people just hang out on the back patio sheltered from the regular douchebag patrons. And they aren't even betting drinks, singing karaoke without a wait, or playing "Ex-Girlfriend Rekindling Fantasy League" (Litman scored +10 for holding hands). Fuck It wins the game!

Chickens vs. Doctor Drama Queens
I love it when Knowlty brings a new girl around... because you're forced to acknowledge that she's into poop sex. The PHDivas, however, would like to remind everyone the dangers of such activity. Be careful out there. Abstinence Is Definitely Safe. Teneille wins!

Liggz vs. Nutz
The Nuts are having a franchise year. Winning the Beer Olympic game is their last great conquest. And with Bull gone, the Ligers have a horrible chugging team. Every girl on TBN can chug faster than Chandler and Rollo. Nuts finally get it done.

Jammers vs. Crystal Pitchers be Crazy
Remember everyone, vote Pitches for Crystal Pitcher! Think of their hot girls... and of Brittany who is a self-proclaimed slut but would NEVER stoop so low as to sleep with a guy on the green team. ToeJammers beat their brains in regardless.

Supa vs. Shockers
Rob wants this. Rob needs this. Frank just wants to have fun. The game is a toss-up... but I think this is the year of the Grimace. Shockers win because Florian is underutilized.

Yes! 3253ffbc-e479-11e0-b4a6-000bcdcb8a73 is here!!

Chandler said...

Oh... and I didn't hear about the infield homerun in socks. Sounds awesome though. Justin and Deeks probably missed it due to the tears in their eyes clouding their vision...

Alison said...

I see what you did there, Brown.

Smithkey said...

3c7dff36-8c74-11e0-a26e-000bcdcb471e

Not to be confused with

3253ffbc-e479-11e0-b4a6-000bcdcb8a73

3253ffbc-e479-11e0-b4a6-000bcdcb8a73

I think the "crying" some of my team did was the very next play in which your runner was clearly out, but your whole bench started yelling. We basically said screw it, let him be safe.....this is with a 10-run lead. Fortunately our exploits in a drinking kickball league isn't the pinnacle of our athletic achievements (especially the way we've played this year), so maybe we have a different perspective. For the love of God, I hope you win this week so you'll be in a good mood after the game. We'll buy your team a round to make up for our "crying".

Chandler said...

Everyone has AIDS! AIDS AIDS AIDS!

JD said...

Chandler,

We appreciate your support for our "Pitches for the Crystal" campaign. As you know, we have made it our top priority this season. We are pleased that Gorecki has also pledged his support following a round of shots last week. We do have to slip over to MacD on occassion for a/c and liquor, but we'll be out and about campaigning.

Thank you,

MJ said...

Are socks considered footwear??

Rule 10. GoKickball Website -
All fielders and kickers must have footwear, bare-feet are not allowed. Depending on local City Parks and Recreation rules, cleats may or may not be allowed on the fields. Where cleats are not allowed, only turf or gym shoes are permitted for play.

Chandler said...

Deeks,

Why do you need liquor when you can drink your own beer-sweat from lack of A/C at YoA?

JD said...

Growlers vs IHT
Team Hot Catcher over the team that told us they still don't know some of the players on their own team who have played in each game.

AlcoBallics vs YLLINAD
After that a$$-pounding we took last week, have to roll with YLLINAD.

BCBC vs PHDivas
Maybe I was a week early, but PHDivas have some fast women and eventualy they'll figure out the game. PHD in an upset and will be called into action when Tony suffers an inevitable heart attack.

Ligers vs TBN
TBN...the loss of Bull still looms large.

ToeJammers over us.
I predict the TJ's will argue a call, we'll "cry" over them arguing, and we won't remember the score of any kickball game EVER the second it is over. We wanted a supersoaker game, but after their experience with SuperBad, they weren't motivated....the rest of league can thank SuperBad, because we told our women it was a whiteout game and they needed to wear white t-shirts.

SuperBad vs Shockers
SuperBad I always bet on Frank. He's a handsome man.

Kyle said...

damn you superbad...i was hoping to see the bumpit sisters in wet t-shirts and you ruined that for me

FRANK said...

I just wanted to slip down the slide!

The Todd said...

Growlers (no commentary needed)

You Drink Like I Need a Look(deserves commentary, but I'm not doing it)

BCBT(no commentary needed)

Ligers - I think tonight, Ligers Rookie sensation, Maria's cousin, will come to life. Once this kid stops munting, he'll be great, and I'm sure this kid can chug.

Jammers(no commentary needed)

Superbad(deserves commentary, but I'm not doing it)

Litman said...

growlers
you look like shit
BCBT
Beer nut
PBC
Shockers

get your howl o scream money in!

FRANK said...

Pixies this week. Lets hope we dont get rained out. I think these are the hardest picks this week.

GROWL vs IHT

Anyone who wears Salmon jerseys deserves to lose. Anyone who wears black deserves the dickhead reputation. The black dicks wear out the fishy pink pussies.. Hopefully Sandra doesnt read this.

Ballics vs YLLINAD

YLLINAD mopped the floor with Sweaty Deek last week, and no doubt will do the same with Alco's Balls. Seems they may have a new nickname.. You look like I need a dick. That's what she said.

BCBT vs PHDIVAS

BCBT will score more tonight than Smith-----Key, Tony, and Knowlton ever have, combined. Sadly it's only 5 runs, and cousins dont count.

Ligers vs TBN

Nate's winning in Kickball, Fantasy Football, and overall life right now. Natrodamous may be right with his prophecy of the world coming to an end in 2012. If the Liggers keep their girls down to five again this week, they may have a chance of winning. Im going Nuts this week, as the Liggers man bunting finally catches up with them.

TJ vs PBC

TJers are fed up with their losing ways and Ruben gives his team a modern day tongue lashing before the game. Yella takes exception to his open-ness with the rest of the team, and takes his business elsewhere. He becomes Deek's bitch and fills his sprayer with Sweaty Deek juice. I dont know where I am going with this, but I think the Jammers win, which totally goes against what I just wrote....my bad.

Supa vs. Shockers

We will have 23 people there tonight, half of which will be girls. I can almost bet that we will have more girls than the Shockers have players. If we pull out the victory it will be one for the ages. Either way Robby will be fully bald by the end of this one. No Random tonight.

My bad on the commentary today. Kinda weak...

FRANK said...

im betting us to win btw..

E-FLO said...

Definitely not your best work Franky-Frank, but some nice gems nonetheless (Growlers v. IHT)...

FRANK said...

There needs to be some reward for having a lot of girls on your team show up. It doesnt seem fair to play against a team that has 12 people and only 5 girls vs. 12 girls and 12 guys. Mainly saying this for the tourney..

M. Gorecki said...

Not bad Frank but Gorechate has been hibernating and all this talk about new nick names like OMG and other "gray" references I won't mention. Well you've awoken the bear and now he's angry. So I'll take it from here...

Growlers- Is there a unspoken rule where when you are assigned black shirts and are the catcher you make a name for yourself? Remember A-hole catcher from BnD? Well "fiesty catcher" here's your chance to prove your team does like to have fun. Enjoy the W's these next few weeks and lets see if the "fun" carries into the playoffs? Wanna bet beers on it?

Ballics- Here we go again with everyone picking against the ballics (except trini but does anyone take into account her picks?) And now we face a team that apparantly makes trophies after victories. Well whatever the outcome I'll bring a trophy tonight to present them that reads "Dude its just kickball" as i've been warned this isnt a fun team to play against. Wanna bet hugs on it?

BCB?- PhDivas are still looking for an identity and are improving each week, but still allow runs to score with costly overthrows and mistags. Do you think Big Tony claps in the same exuberation when he finally gets to 1st base off the fields? Wanna bet Bito slaps on it?

TBN- Chandler pulls a "hanging chad" and dbt does a revote on the power rankings flip flopping the ballics n nuts. nate must really be licking some balls n nuts to get dbt to change it. chandlers dog watched and took notes as he's trying to improve his skills. Wanna bet a jar of peanut butter on it?

PCP- I have drank the koolaid! or whatever shot they served me last week. Whatever it was it mustve been laced with pcp cause i'm picking them this week and voting for them for crystal pitcher. now these effects might wear off when i dont get treated to another shot this week. Eitherway im going pcp this week. wanna bet deek's sweat rag on it?

Shockers- hmmm are you sure this is the game of the week? you know the beerolympics are also playing during this same time slot. rob is wayyy to pumped for this game and has probably been cuddling with his lineup sheet all week instead of paige. shockers win but do NOT go undefeated this season. Wanna bet 7 minutes on it?

Gorechate out.

Maria said...

For some reaason Gorecki wanted me to pick his picks, (he was jealous when I picked someone elses a few weeks ago.) So I'll take them and keep my pudding shot pie for myself.

bull said...

Pudding shot pie huh that's a new name for it!

Florian said...

Growlers
Green Team
Brown Chicken Big Tony
TBN (both olympics and game)
PBC
Supa

Justin "G" said...

Growlers
Fuck it
BCBT
Nutz
Jammers
Shockers

Nate Dawg said...

Almost forgot to get these in...

Growlers over IHT - Growlers started slow but I can see them hitting their stide after last week and really putting together some solid performances going forward.

Ya look like over Ballics - OMG... need I say more?

PHDivas over BC!BT! - no Tony this week equals less annoying team but also equals less offense...PH gets their first win. (Rumor has it Tony is reffing KBS tonight in Temple Terrace, aka completely giving up on BC!BT!)

TBN over Ligers - TBN is finally putting it together, believe the HYPE!

Jammers over Future CP winners -
TJ's finally put things together now that they are playing kickball on back to back nights. Remember Jammers this isnt KBS, there is real competition out here.

Shockers over Supa - This one is really a toss up but the way Rob has the purple people eaters getting after it this year it really makes it tough for me to pick against them. Wouldnt be surprised if they sweep the regular season and the tournament.

FRANK said...

damn can i get my picks on the board?!

Chandler said...

I totally forgot to put yours on it. They'll be on the next version. Haha

FRANK said...

I mean im only in first place in the picks.. all good. lol
