Field Update

As of 2:30pm, here's an update:

The fields were mowed (for the most part).

Field 1 is "playable." The further in the outfield you go, the muddier it is.

Field 2 has standing water in right field, and the rest of it is muddy (worse than last week). Any games played on Field 2 will be a shit-show. Teams affected include:

Alcoballics
Off Constantly
Jacked Up
Sit on My Base
ToeJammers
Moundpounders

There has not been any word from the league if we're still playing, but DPT is curious as to what you active readers (and lurkers) think. Play in the mud? Go straight to the bar? Make your voice heard!

Or don't. Whatever.

4:23pm update - games are still on, mud and all (people who are afraid don't have to show up. you've been warned)

maybe just cancel games playing on field two? hype

Chandler said...

We can't make them up, because there's no room for double-headers. So it's all or nothing.

I say make them play in the mud.

Paul said...

I'd usually say play...but then again the Giants play tonight...torn

E-FLO said...

Is there any way we can make up games on a non-Thursday day?

Josh Crum said...

I like mud!

As long as there is no lightning then I will get dirty. Will there be a hose to wash off?

FRANK said...

PLAY! PANTHERS TONIGHT!

E-FLO said...

Standing water in the field is no bueno...Cancel

Chandler said...

E-Flo... I'm sure we can make up games on a Tuesday or something... as in: the city will let us.

But good luck with the whining that comes from that. People do other things the other nights of the week.

Fat Kid said...

i was planning on missing the game to watch my Gmen anyways, but if its "officially" cancelled then Princess Griff can't be mad at me. Also, mud and water is alot of fun when we were younger but we have a couple people over 35+ on the Jammers and i can just see someone slipping (or purposely diving) into the mud and separating a shoulder, twisting an ankle etc...

MJ said...

any way to 'Frank' up a new field somewhere?

Nate Dawg said...

Play in the mud!

Chandler said...

MJ... at our current location... no. The outfields are already overlapping due to standing water on the clay (actually softball clay).

Nate Dawg said...

E-Flo must have been leading the charge in the Summer league of the Super Ninjas bitching out the field being wet after our slip n slide game.

MJ said...

i say play in the mud, but that one field we played on sure does have some ankle-breaking areas...i'm good on having two good ankles.

MJ said...

what about a 9:45 and 10:45 and 11:45 game lol

Smithkey said...

Straight to the bar!

Chandler said...

So we got:

2 people who want to cancel games because some shitty football team is playing

one person who wants us to cancel because they are out of town

Frank is hype

E-Flo is having vaginal flare-ups

Chan and Nate aren't even playing on field 2 so their opinion is shit

Crum actually IS playing on field 2 and he wants to play.

Smithkey isn't even showing up

I think that's everyone so far

Jess said...

Cancel the games!! We don't want any injuries, espcially to the old fogie jammers or MJ!! And if it rains more the fields will be even worse!!!! I think we should cancel every game I can't make it to!!!! RAWRRR!!!!!!

E-FLO said...

@Nate: True story...

JD said...

There were some pretty nasty critters breeding in the infield last week. Kinda curious how they turned out.

Nate Dawg said...

@Chan - I am reffing on those fields does that count?
@Eflo - gonna call you HighFlo bc of your vaginal issues

FRANK said...

Mt. High Flo is Erupting!

Alison said...

Are any of these opinions going to influence whether the City and/or Johnny has to cancel tonight's games?

I'm with Jess that all games I can't make it to should be canceled! ;) But in this case for realz, only if they can be made up. I'd play in the mud rather than cancel; I learned how to change out of muddy clothes when I was growing up. I don't really even really know what's going on in Tampa now--just what my Weather Channel app tells me. I'm in a boring seminar, have my winter coat on the back of my chair to deal with this stupid cold weather, and I'd prefer to kick a kickball into half of these people's faces. Out!!!

Chandler said...

Alison... no.

GKB is going to make whatever decision gets this season over and done with sooner rather than later.

But this blog exists as a forum for people to express their (dumb) opinions.

Thanks for leaving yours.

MJ said...

I don't like Alison's opinion unless she's making rap/satire/cover song comments anyways.

Smooty said...

I want to see Alison kick a kickball into at least two-thirds of these people's faces. Make it happen Ali.

Nate Dawg said...

Make sure you put the vid on the blog Alison...

J.W. said...

At the fields now. They are shit. I vote no.

Nate Dawg said...

Bring extra towels to clean yourself up

MJ said...

Good news - on the gokickball website we're still on...as of last Tuesday

Desoto Park

Muto and Hanby who cried when games were canceled with FLOODED fields... vs. JW and EFlo who are upset about playing in mud. Awesome.

Nate Dawg said...

LOL that site is worthless...

MJ said...

like Johnny...what?

Who won the ginger stuck in a swing comment on Facebook? Anything Justin related should net you a small prize.

MJ said...

Looks like Frank's mom won...what kinda shit is that????

Nate Dawg said...

It went from a caption contest to a Ginger/Justin bashing

Alison said...

Well that's what I figured, which is why I asked. Seemed like you were opening up a (dumb) topic welcoming comments. Just like it seemed like Johnny would do what he needed to in order to get the season going. Hugs and rainbows!

MJ, I got you coming up next.

Smooty, send me a kickball!!! This current speaker is just asking for it!

Alison said...

Damn it feels good to be a kickballa
Hangin' wit your team and helpin out wit the runs
Although Reid was born in Jamaica 
Now he's in the US kickin' balls
Damn it feels good to be a kickballa
I mean one that you all want to know 
Ridin' around town in a crap-top Saturn
Hittin' parties in my red dri-fit 
Now kickball-ass ballas come in all teams and colors 
Some got banned in the past 
But this kickballa here is a smart one 
Switched to GoKickball where I'll last 

Now all I gotta say to you 
Wannabe, gonnabe, burger pizza-eatin' beersuckin' prankstas 
When the karaoke jumps off what the fuck you gonna do
Damn it feels good to be a kickballa

BOOM!!!!!
