Field Update

People keep emailing/texting me asking about the field status. I only know a couple of things:

1) Taylor field blows ass.

2) Johnny has been running around talking to a million different entities about fields.

Every neighborhood has a DIFFERENT city worker in charge of their parks and fields. So there's a ton of phone tag... and each person you talk to only has a couple of fields to discuss.

Then you have to coordinate availability (because this whole issue was sprung on us last-minute), and field size. A lot of places are too small for 3 games at a time. So we'd have to have 6:30 games again. Many places only rent out to Little Leagues. Etc etc.

Kickball will happen, and hopefully it'll be this week. We might have to play Week 1 on one field... and Week 2 somewhere else.

In fact, maybe we should re-name the divisions to better represent all of our travels?

Nomad? Gypsy? Jews (the 1550-1313 BC variety, depending on what scholar you talk to)? Jews (the 1939-1944 variety, if we want to be more modern). Aztecs (pre-Tenochtitlan)?

There are many great wanderers in history. GKB currently holds the torch.

I'm going to play kickball on your face if this doesn't happen soon.
At least put some picks up already, dammit.
