IHT has to be the most improved team this season despite the fact they will not win a game. They were so bad the first few weeks of the season that I almost felt bad for them. However they are learning the game and slowly progressing which kinda sucks because I was looking forward to hopefully playing them next season and getting more then one win.

How the hell are we still ranked in the top 2/3 of this league? Our performance has been nothing short of god awful this season. Are we the USC of kickball? You continue to overrank us because we did something once, a long time ago, with people who can't even run to first base anymore? The validity of your power rankings is suspect...like Maddon bringing JP Howell to get us out of a jam.

If we end the season at .500 or above, it will be an act of god as that means we have to beat either the Liggers or YLLINAD.

That said, look for us in the semifinals of the tournament...we'll make it that far and then OMG will need a nap.

Griff said...

Good stuff....but I think us old farts should be ranked higher then the growlers.

Chandler said...

Kyle... you're not the USC of kickball. But you're totally the Notre Dame of kickball.

And DPT is apparently NBC.

As for your ranking, I think it breaks down like this:

IHT / PHDs... no explanation needed. The Ballics CAN'T be ranked lower than them.

BC!BT!... even more of a mess than the Ballics, thanks to Tony off reffing Kickball Society... Teneille not able to catch balls... and Knowlton doing Knowlton things.

Pitches... have zero "quality" wins. Their three victories are against BC!BT, PHDs and IHT. Easiest schedule ever.

Ligers... just as much of a defensive and base-running mess as the Ballics. Also no quality wins, whereas the Old Man Gorecki's did beat the Growlers early.

So by default, the Alcoballics HAVE to be ranked #7.

Stuck at JFK waiting for my flight home, so I'll kick it off....


Growlers v I'd Hit That
Enjoyed playing IHT last week and they were the only team we could have beat. We started a rookie ginger at short and after his 18th ball-humping error, his own wife just yelled "honey, give it up". They are a team of horny bastards so I doubt any will kick the ball so they can spend more time with hot catcher. Growler dominate.

Alcoballics v You Look Like...
Hoping Gorecki can pull this out, but no. I'm rolling with The You.

BC!BT! v. PHDivas
THIS IS THE WEEK! Third time picking PHDivas for the upset and I hope those anti-social bastards pull it out.

Growlers v. Ligers
Doesn't that tatted up chick who performed an entire concert at YOA play for the Growlers? Growlers win out of fear.

SuperBad v.BC!BT!
Could be a mercy rule after the first inning unless SuperBad hasn't sobered up from last week.

ToeJammers v.PHDivas
Nice win last win over the Evil Empire. TJ win easily.

You Look Like... v.THEE BEER NUTS
Can't see the Green Machine getting beat down twice in room. The You again.

Alcoballics v. I'd Hit That
Alco's win easily.

Shockers v.Pitches be Crazy
Shockers win easily. We did well on our female recruiting, but we can rename our team once again to the Slobbering Tards after some of our other rookies.

Chandler said...

Growlers vs. IHT
No contest here. Growlers destroy Team Tickles, but Feisty Catcher still manages to get worked up... shouting a string of Spanish where the only word I'll understand is "chulo."

Alco vs. YLL
There's bound to be one game this season where the Ballics put everything together. They make minimal mistakes and beat a team way better than themselves. Oh wait. That happened against the Growlers already. Go Green recycles the old men in red.

BC!BT! vs PHD
Deeks is reaching on this one. No way does Smith Key let his team falter here. Even if he has to score all the runs and catch all the balls. Chickens sue for medical malpractice.

Growlers vs. Ligs
Oh, the kitty cat game. How cute. Nice, furry, Growling Ligers. Wait... there's probably a more offensive spin on this game. How about... The true blue Liggers attempt to defend their turf from the posers in black-jerseys. However, the Frank Crow laws prevail once again, and the Growlers dominate. The fight for kickball equality is stalled, and Bull continues to have (wet) dreams where one day Ligers can compete on an even playing field. Eventually, memorials in his honor are erected and every city has at least one street named "Bull E. Douglas Boulevard"... even if it runs through a shady part of town.

Supa vs. BC!BT!
Fresh off their victory over the PHDs, BC!BT! is due for some classic Knowlton antics. Once Supa is up by 5+... who knows what that kid will do. And Teneille will drop more balls.

Toes vs. PHDs
The urine yellow game. The Jammers (being the old farts that they are) are apparently more dehydrated and thus a stronger yellow color. In any case... the PHDs piss this game away as Jammers shower themselves with praise.

YLLsigh vs. TBN
Game of the week. Are the Nuts for real? Are the Greenies nothing but stems and seeds? MJate are too chubbed up over the Cardinals win to focus on this game. YLLLLLL wins.

Ballics vs. Hits?
And, we've reached the two red teams. This game is going to be one bloody menstrual mess. After the Ballics win, they reflect what could have been if they'd just let Florian and Tyrus on the team.

Shocks vs Pitch
Has there ever been a game with such a huge discrepancy of Crystal Pitcher chances? The Shockers received a league-worst two votes last season. While this season, PBC has meshed together the perfect blend of fun, female hotness and "historical lack of respect guilt trip." Shockers win the game easily.

Here we gooooo

People droppin like flies in the picks dept., once they start losing.. Similar to Tony and his team.

Growlpals vs IHT

Asshole Catcher's man-growler shows as he kneels down to catch, and the tuck rule comes in to play. IHT tries to hit dat, but his brown star gets cock blocked, leading to a dual of swords. A-Hole catcher is the ultimate cock, and stabs his competition repeatedly til the death.

Alco vs YLL

After a fun filled game of costumes and comraderie for the C theme last week, Alco is in for a rude awakening this week. Overhand pitching and plenty of bitching will cause OMG to stroke out in the 3rd inning. Alco uses his life alert, and rallies the troops while EMS carts OMG away. The asian invasion pounces with a kamikazee swan tan bomb, and blows up for the win in the 7th inning to regain their swagger, just in time for their playoff run.

BCBT vs PHD

While this may be a battle of the two worst defenses in the league, the score board will not reflect this, due to their horrible offenses as well. BCBT wins in a snoozer..

Growl vs Liggers

Battle of the blacks... Who's blacker

The liggers munting escapades in recent years has severely ruined their street credit, and brought them down to Carlton/Wayne Brady status in the battle of blackness. Asshole catcher has been keeping it real this season, and wont stand for being called Toby. Malcom X wins and makes the liggers ride in the back of the bus.

Supa Vs. Brown Chicken Barred Tony

In what was hoped to be the battle of the brown shirts after their 1st win of the season, BCBT is looking like a rerun of the Kicktease/Superstars season's of past, and is not even worthy to play for our jerseys. We'll give you a chance with random this week, although I think you'd lose with just our girls playing y'all.

Jammers vs PHD

Polar oppsosites in this one...
After PHD's get their shit kicked in this week, Rubs creates a new charity in their honor, D.A.A.D.S. Doctors Against Arogant Dick Shitkicking.

YLL vs TBN

(BOO) Battle Of Overratedness

I think YLL wins this because their defense is a bit better than that of TBN, but dont let either team fool ya, both of their offenses suck. Nate and MJ finally get their heads out of the clouds, and come back to reality. Two 4ft dwarfs can only carry a team for so long.....my bad.

Alco vs IHT

With Mike Cougarrecki in the ICU, Alco goes undefeated for the rest of the season.

Shockers vs PBC

Rob is pissed that he left his team for Vegas for one week, and is now not in first. Not in first, and last in Crystal Pitcher votes, and wearing purple. Triple whammy... Im going UPSET SPECIAL! PBC wins.

Probably buying drinks..

Shhh, listen... you hear that? No those aren't chants of "We want Flo" its the gallery saying "way want some gorechate" Power rankings get a D- this week but Chandler redeemed himself with worthy pick commentary. But wait, I cant compare one to another. Nom Nom Nom...

Growlers- Well you lookie there. Growlers have put together 2 straight wins. Soon it'll be 3. Grumpy growler celebrates by... wait no he doesn't he still finds something to bitch about (see growler/liger game commentary below)...

Ballics- Thank god this game is scheduled for 6:30 as I'll have my early bird dinner consumed and taken my ensure. And I must thank GKB for letting me have an hour break inbetween games so I can get a nap in (Man Gorechate is hating on himself! No one is safe!)

BCBT- For gods sake brown whatever you're called this week, I continue to pick you yet you lose each week. Well wipe that brown stuff off your rear end and stop sh*tting the bed, step up and win this game.

Growlers- So just as Grumpy Growler is about to celebrate their 6:30pm victory, "The skinny guy in blue" comes up and says "hey, its 7:30pm lets start our game" Grumpy growler has a vietnam flashback and remembers he was the ref that informed him of the sliding past the base rule. He then napalms the liggers calling them a bunch of Charlies.

Supa- C game last week was fun, but this game can be described with a C word as well. Catastrophic. As in the damage the browns will feel after Cat 5 Hurricane FranknBeans rolls through.

Jammers- Look at jammers, quietly sitting below .500. Its never too early to start prepping for tournament mode. They tell the girls to stay home and roll the divas.

YLLenough already- I cant see them going winless tonight so since I picked the ballics to defeat them in the early game i'll go with them here. Plus I gotta throw some GoreHateNate as his cards and my brewers are both playing game 5's. NL Central pride? Nah this isnt the SEC.

Ballics- I'm too old for double headers. OMG naps through this game but it doesn't matter as the ballics are getting their form together. And can we vote an individual for a Crystal Pitcher? Cause evrytime we lose (which has been way too frequent this season) Matt R. replies everytime by say "Its ok guys we are a tournament team!"

Shockers- I started to pick upset but the shot PBC treated me too was soooo long ago so the effects have worn off. Lets see if Robb can get in their (full haired)heads and under their (sweaty) skin by playing this game competitively. PBC we will have scouts at your game seeing if youre worthy of CP votes!

Growlers
Alcoballics
Probably a decently matched game this based on the scores this season. I think YLLINAD is highly favored but I wonder how they’ll do with an earlier game time. My first instinct is to go with YLLINAD tonight (Ballics are a tournament team…remember? Hi Gorecki!) but the Ballics may just squeak this one out if we have a full squad. Since I don’t know if that’s the case or not I’m going to roll the dice with the Ballics to win in a squeaker here. Let’s hope this doesn’t cost me drinks.

@Chandler

Those were perfectly fine, upscale, progressive areas of town until all the Liggers moved next to the street. And I think we all know what happens when a bunch of Liggers get together! Nothing but a bunch of mixing drinks (Maria) rapping till 4 in the mornin' (The Tood) Booty dancing (Huffman) Trash talking (Amber) Finger snapping while shaking the head back and forth (Souder) Pimping (...Chandler!!) and Eating all the fried chickens (Rollos)

Those damn Liggers
