Happy Holidays from Drunk-Flo

Blog don't die on me!!!
3 years ago I joined Balls n Dolls, I was new to Tampa and didn't have friends.  Then a guy on BnD told me about you, I saw you, I was captivated.  You were energetic, funny, youthful.  We became friends and I found new friends & fun through you.  You were my first true friend in Tampa, we've been through so much, and it breaks my heart to see you in your aging days of decay.  DON'T DIE!!!! not on my watch.

I'll give you a pulse with Drunk-Flo's warm holiday cheer (& friends):

Crystal Pitcher – Fall 2012



Congratulations Pitches Be Crazy!!! 

It was a close race between SuperBad, Off Constantly, and Pitches, but Pitches Be Crazy did pull ahead and win by two votes.  I definitely agree that it’s long overdue.  I didn't hear a speech by Deeks after winning but maybe he'll give us a recap of his heartfelt thoughts here.  Johnny provided our winners with a bottle of champagne for their celebration.  

Thanks for a fun season, Pitches!  


PBC: champions of the funz. 

Champagne time!  And look...you can see Deeks smiling!  :)  

Thanks to Llyod from PBC for sending me the pics to post!  

Tournament!

Congrats to Pitches be Crazy for a long overdue, and much deserved, Crystal Pitcher victory. Allegedly they beat SuperBad by two votes, but I won't be able to confirm that unless the ballots suddenly show up in my bushes. Regardless, good job and impressive first round upset over Off Constantly.

Green Salute to Desoto Park Light Post #3


The DPT Green Corner salutes this season’s silent Green Hero: Desoto Park’s Light Post #3.

If you played any game on Field #1 (affectionately known as “the Mud Pit”), you’d have noticed that a shadow effect came into play.  That’s because Light Post #3 was never on.  Not only did it add an “obstacle” into the kickball game with the “shadow effect”, which increased the Fun Factor of trying to catch a partially light Kickball, but it also helped minimize our CO2 consumption per game.  By just how much, well, now that’s the fun part when we do the math.  YAY!:
Let’s assume 1 bulb had a power rating of 1,000 Watts, and in general 1.7 pounds of CO2 is produced for every kilowatt-hour of electricity, so:


153 lbs of CO2 saved!

That’s like offsetting Litman’s CO2 emissions for a whole day!!

I also want to personally thank those that helped recycle this year.  By using just a fraction of conscious effort in throwing a beer can into the blue bin instead of the trash can, you’ve helped keep this world green, and also help lower the price of American consumer goods, because it’s much easier to get aluminum from a can than digging it out of the Ground; way easier to turn a cardboard beer box into a newspaper than cutting down a tree to do so.

Thanks

Hey Dog Owners

The Police Athletic League (PAL) does not allow dogs on their fields.

Do NOT bring them on Saturday. If you do, you'll be kicked off the property.

If you can't live without your dog for an afternoon, then please go rescue 10 more puppies and stay at home alone forever. Thanks in advance.

Let’s talk about SEX…..y Tournament Brackets!



I thought I would get this up earlier but some time during today my IT decided there is too much sex on the DPTs for the workplace and it is now filtered (Say it ain't so, Valerie!  Also, please see what you can do about this!).  But the gambling must continue!!!  On to the brackets…

For those of you who have never gambled with us during a tournament, DPT lurkers (yes……you), newcomers to the league, or if you rode the short bus to school and just can’t remember how it works:

You will find a printable bracket here or by using the “Playoffs – NEW” link on the right side of this blog.  On Friday the seeding will be complete and the bracket ready for you to fill out.  I will also have some extra blank brackets in the Alcoballic tent on tournament day if you need one. 

Correct picks are awarded points based on a 1-2-4-6 system as the tournament rounds progress. 

Your bracket must be turned in to me BEFORE the games start.  No, not before your game…all the games.  If you don’t play until the 11:30am game and cannot manage to be there before the first round you may e-mail me your bracket by 4pm on Friday.  If you don’t pay me upon arriving at the fields your bracket will be thrown out. 

You must include all of the following with each bracket your submit:

  1. $5 cash money per bracket.  I won’t be rolling with a ton of change so try to bring me those Lincolns, please.  No IOU’s as the pot is paid out the same day. 
  2. Your name must be at the top of each bracket you submit! 
  3. Next to your pick for tournament champion you’ll need to put the TOTAL number of points you think will be scored in the final game.  This will be a tiebreaker, if necessary, with under beating over. 

Did she say each bracket?  Why, yes I did!  You may submit up to two brackets.  There’s plenty of money to be made so get your bracket in!  

Goooooooooo gambling!!!

Tournament

Reminder:

The tournament is this Saturday at PAL (1924 W. Diana Street Tampa, FL 33604). It starts at 10am. We should be able to have 4 games at a time for the first two rounds, so we won't be out there all day.

After party is at the Rajun Cajun.

On the side of this blog is a playoff bracket. Teams will be filled in once their position in the standings is locked. If anyone wants to run a bracket pool, go for it. The admins of DPT are too tired. And we're not very welcoming, catering or accepting of anyone but ourselves.

Power Rankings - Week 10

Last rankings of the season before winter hibernation. It's been emotional...

Pitches be Crazy

Not many to choose from this week. The other games are toss-ups, especially since we don't know which SuperBad team is going to show up.

Something we can all agree on this election day!

Sick of all this political mumbo jumbo clogging your facebook and inbox? Tired of people's ill-informed posts ranting about why you should vote for their candidate? Wishing your vote actually mattered?

Well here's your chance to make a difference! Becca on the Growlers is a Biology teacher at East Bay High School and has entered a contest to win over 10k in technology for her classroom.  She had to make a music video which shows how technology is needed/used in the classroom and out of 270 entrants she is in the top 5! The video with the most votes wins so we need your help! She is currently barely behind first place so every vote counts!

Follow the link below to vote (click the vote button at the bottom of the video). You will need to 'register' with an email address, name and birth date but just use a junk one (I know you have one!) - this is to ensure only one vote per video (no hanging chads or voter fraud here!)

http://flipyourclassroom.einstruction.com/performances/1bw8xt85vs

Ten Gs is a lot of money and she spent a lot of hard work reprising MJ's classic 'Beat It' video. If you're looking for a reason to vote, her Moonwalk at minute :33 is reason enough (the girl has got skills!)!  So if you're sitting at work hungover from Stoney's or wanting to REALLY make a difference this election day, please take a few minutes to vote!

Beer Nuts upset Jammers 3-2*


Last nights game between TBN and the Jammers brought back up one of the most controversial calls in NFL history.
No catch. Rams win. Haha.
In all seriousness if it is a catch its 1st and 10 at the 25 and the Bucs have scored 6 pts vs the Rams defense up to that point and there are 45 seconds left down by 5. Chance they get a TD to win it? Maybe. Probably not though.

So the play in the kickball game last night that brought this back up was in the bottom of the 6th inning with the score tied at 2. There was 1 out with Frank on 3rd base. Steph (not Lifshin) was up to kick and bunted towards 3rd base. E-Flo was reffing the game next to us and yelled out "FOUL" so Steph and others on the Jammers stopped what they were doing thinking Souder called the ball foul. Once the Jammers figured out that the ball was actually fair their 3rd baseman ran up and tagged out Steph. It was argued she would have kept running and gotten to 1st base if she hadnt heard E-Flo yell out foul. When you have a runner on 3rd base and a girl bunts you will almost never try and throw her out at first in order to keep the run from scoring. Especially in a close game. TBN asked if she could re-kick and the Jammers thought she should be out. Souder allowed her to re-kick and the run ended up scoring on that play since the kick went to the 1st base side. Jammers went 1-2-3 in the next inning and TBN won 3-2.

I just wanted to get others opinions on how you would call that play? Is she out or would you have the play re-played? I personally thought it was the right thing to do to have her re-kick.

I enjoyed playing the Jammers and its too bad that this happened in a good game.

Picks from Peru!

True I missed Mondays picks, Alison, but no way I would miss two in a row! My body might be on a different continent but my mind is always on Desoto Park! I am however, typing on a weird ass keyboard and I cant figure out how to make apostrophes and it says every word I type is typo BUT I can use upside down exclamation points and question marks so I think its a win win. ¡Lets commence the picks!

Supa v. Jacked Up
Im sure the Shockers routed JU last night but there is hope for them against Supa Random. I saw them play against OC and they looked turrible turrble (cue Charles Barkley).  If JU is an upset pick, Ill take it here.

Shockers v. Beer Nuts
A team who cares a shitload versus a team who shits...a careload? Yall know what I mean...With Faz hangin here with me in Peru, there is no hope for TBN . Who am I kidding, there is no hope regardless - Shockers continue their douchey dominance with a big win over the Ñuts (I just wanted to use that letter).

Ballics v. Ligers
This game could go either way as both teams have the ability to pull wins (or ties) out of their asses and completely shit the bed.  Speaking of ties - thats my pick.  Ill let Chandler decide who I get. 

Jammers v. Growlers
*Sigh* I wish I could say we roll to a W this Thursday, but I wish for a lot of things...like being a millionaire or finding a cure for cancer. Or knowing Smootys real name. But we dont always get what we wish for.  Pour one jager bomb out for me, team!

PBC v. Moundpound
Jose and his crew suck ass...possibly more ass than PBC although thats hard to do. ¡The Pitches I once knew didnt take this losing shit! Snap out of it, PBC, and POUND THAT MOUND for yesterdays no show!

OC v. SoMB
OC lost to TBN? ¡Pathetic! Heres hoping they play like they did against Supa....OC FTW.
