Picks are now open, again. Feel free to make picks, or change your selections.

Great commentary last week, and then God pissed on us. So let's give this weeks' matchups a go!

SuperBad – Ligers lost their chance to introduce the Little Giants to losing this season, SuperBad won’t let such an opportunity slip away… Giants popped their kickball cherry hard and walk crooked for a week, in a manner similar to how yellabird lost his at the truckstop years ago.

Pitches be Crazy – SoMB is fun. PbC is funner.

ToeJammers – Guarnteed Win. But please be the “School Girl” theme for this season, so I can see Griff, Ruben, and… I mean Jacked up frolic in plaid skirts.

Alcoballics – too many newbies on Thee Beer Nuts, plus Gorecki’s gone.

Shockers – Season Opening Payback is the sweetest. Rob’s got this team stacked.

Ligers – I’m betting Off Constantly lost their Good Girls to WAKA so they could play with their BnD boyfriends. Depleted OC (plus humiliated by BnD) is down in spirits.

SUPERBAD over little giants--Hopefully they had an offseason intervention to stop the hate. I'm not sure the Lil' Giants can handle a beat down and endure CJ yelling at everyone.

PITCHES BE CRAZY over sit on my base--Can't wait to see the look on Base Face after they realize Deeks is the one sitting on Bases.

TOEJAMMERS over jacked up--It would be nice to see some girls gone wild action from Jacked Up while getting smacked around like TJs have Chris Brown.

THEE BEER NUTS over alcoballics--Even with the incredibily generosity of E-FLO buying me a shot I can't forget the horrible umpiring he displayed last season.

SHOCKERS over growlers--Upset the champs of summer league. I 2nd the Shocker girls in plaid minis. Besides that Growlers play terrible music all game long....still not cool or funny!

OFF CONSTANTLY over ligers--Beard Face could not be lured to the Pitches for fall. He decided to do the exact opposite and attempt to defeat PBC. I hear the OC is pretty good and I've seen the Ligers are pretty bad.

JD said...

Superbad d Giants.....Am I the only one concerned over the rate that Superbad is procreating? TJ is probably happy that for a couple of months, he won't be the shortest member of the clan. Giants inability to block the corners and cover the slot costs them big.

PBC d Base...we didn't learn our lesson from the Seiler era, and put another single guy in charge of our team. We now have 43 women on the squad. God still favors us, so we'll win.

TJs d JackedUp.....It will take 2 pitches for JU to remember why they left.

TBN d Ballics....would have been a good game in 2008.

Growlers d Shockers....Growlers did not look very good against Bowling Green. Short-yardage toughness is a big concern. Growlers still pull off the close win to please their master, Lord Jess.

OC d Ligers....which Beardface shows up? The one who led the summer league in balls thrown onto the other field or the one who turned groundballs to third into homeruns?

Chandler said...

SuperBad - The vape will cause Frank to wander the outfield in search of Little's Giants. But size is relative. What if they're giant ants, and not that easy to spot? The conundrum forces Frank into an awkward moment of introspection, questioning his singular existence in a universe that seems to be expanding. He snaps out of it when he "randomly" kicks lead-off.

PbC - First game of the season means Deeks' will have a fresh batch of "motivational" speeches for his team. But after Josh forgets to bring the line-up and field positions, JD loses his inspirational will. Doesn't matter... SoMB isn't that good at the kickball.

TJ - Ruben goes 0-11 tonight: 3 outs on the kickball field... 8 strikeouts with the Jacked Up ladies.

Beer Nuts - Ballics have too many new people, and start to wish they were still "that team." Gorecki uses Skype to base-coach 3rd... and immediately causes Steph to get out.

Shockers - The Shockers appear to be a brand new team in the league. At least... I couldn't find anything about them in the archives (DPT, WAKA, Google... whatever). Usually new teams struggle, but I'll pick the upset.

(speaking of, forgot to force an upset pick... again. next week, Nate!)

OC - The OC attempted to wager our Liger Blue for next season. Sadly, the Liger Doctrine won't allow us to ever give up the color or name (other teams have tried...). So then they wanted the losing captain to allow a bum to shave their head. Congrats Todd! You're now captain!

OC wins by 8 runs.

Smooty said...

No time for commentary today. Besides, it wouldn't be funny if I had time.

Superbad
PBC
ToeJammers
Ballics
Shockers
OC

Griff said...

Not a lot of intel for good commentary this week, but there's a few tough match ups to predict...


Little's Giants v. Supa
Unless Becky "Icebox" O'Shea is taking the field (but lesbe-honest, she'd probably be playing with the Jammers), these LG's don't stand a chance. A Supa-random chance.

Sweat on My Base vs. PBC
SoMB may be in for a sweat bath this week as PBC comes out firing under new management. 


Jacked Up v. Toejammers
Well the defending Super Bowl champs slipped up in their season opener last night because their shitty backups couldn't hang with Dallas' shitty backups. And that Tony Romo guy. But these defending Spring league champs have too many veterans left on their roster to let that happen tonight. Ruben gives an arousing pregame speech to "play hard, stay hard" against those Jacked Up ladies.


TBN v. 'Ballics
Two veteran teams with overhauled rosters...I flipped a coin on this one. Thee Baby Nuts will probably need a game or 10 to figure out what to do with all thee newcomers, but I expect the new-look ballics to fully implode by week 8. Tara awkwardly baby-lifts enough of her new teammates around the bases for a TBN victory tonight. At least Trini finally made it to PCI.


Growlers v. Shockers
Game of The Week. I flip flopped on this one too, as Rob's bunch begins their murder's row of early season opponents. If "tourney" Growlers show up, Purple Drank doesn't stand a chance...but this is the regular season, the only place where the Shockers actually live up to the hype. 


Ligers v. Off Constantly
I hear Twinkle Todd plans to beat off constantly to give Trini an early birthday present. Oh and the Ligers are playing the OC too. JW and the boys have too much pride to lose to liger blue, so I'm taking the OC.

trinihic said...

Is there a reason I keep making these damn commentaries... geeze...
Well then, on to the picks
BabyMaking team (*SUPA*) thought this would have been the Alcobalics were talking about, slaps the newbies around and shows them whose boss... I call a cameo appearance by Sandra and she can probably outrun the girls on Lil G's

*PBC* - have to pick it.. Deek is apparently stalking me.. He's bigger than me and sweats a lot just standing there...

*TJs* - even though everyone has learned the first rule of KB, I still wonder if Rubs can pull one out this season.. Has he in any season??? hmmmmm

*Ballics* - I'm back on big RED whoooooo.... We have fun, we kick but and take names... Maybe have a dog or two take the field.. who knows... they are bigger than some of the guys anyway...

*Growlers* - They have Jess.. Enough said.. hahaha...

*OC* - Beardface is back... but like I said before.. he needs a new name.. with no beard, I won't be picking this team for much longer..

-Trini out... P.S.. MY B'DAY IS TOMORROW!!!!! YAH MEEEEEEEE

J.W. said...

I'll take Griff's picks this week as I won't have time for real commentary before the deadline.

OC is pregaming at anchor bar to make sure our return is particularly drunk and awkward. I feel empowered to be particularly drunk and awkward as I am not going to work tomorrow, but instead boarding a flight to Texas to watch my Gators play football, kind of.

Todd, we lost three girls for various reasons, none of which include defecting to an ass hole black team. Our ladies are still as awesome as ever.

NOCBOC,

Jack for OC

Nate Dawg said...

No time for commentary this week...stupid work. But I am picking an upset this week unless you are a lil bitch you will too. (I bet there are a lot of lil bitches out there...)

Supa
Sit on My Base (Upset pick)
Jammers
Ballics
Growlers
OC

Alison said...

Smatt's picks. Not out if training in enough time for commentary. See you all tonight...if the rain moves out.

Smithkey said...

Superbad
PBC
TJ's
TBN
Growlers
OC

sorry for lack of commentary

Jess said...

Writing this from my phone in NY so autocorrect will most likely get the best of me...

LGs v. Supa
I predict a championship season for Frank's last season and it begins tonight

SoMB v. PBC
Apparently Sit on my base has recruited some ringers but once they are introduced to DeekSweat and DeekHomeruns they'll wish they stayed home

TJs v. Jacked Up
I was going to make a pun about Rubs striking out with the Jacked up girls but someone stole my thunder. That sucks. TJs win.

Ballics v. TBN
A Beer Nuts team without their fast fucker and the captaining of Nate is a lost TBN team. But the Ballics are up and down. It's a close one but Ballics pull one out.

Shockers v. Growlers
I should be happy that I'm missing this game since apparently there is a "heated rivalry between me and the entire shockers team" stemming back "five years ago from a flip cup game at macdintons" (that I had no idea about - thanks Rob for filling us in two weeks ago) and their girls are told to "peg the shit out of me" (ouch!), but, alas, I am sad I won't be there :( Since I'm not there tonight the shockers have nowhere to direct their anger and they implode. Growlers win.

Ligers v. OC
Ligers win in the upset of the week (since I'm not a little bitch, Nate)

Nate Dawg said...

Jess - Boop

THE_Dawson said...

Superbad

J.W. said...

I'll also add GKB over Rain. We will play this week, dammit.

Paul said...

I flip-flopped on Ligers v OC for what seems like 16 weeks.

But then I realized it was a toss up between having the same picks as Teneille or the Monarch of my team.

Superbad
PBC
ToeJammers
Alcoballics
Growlers
Ligers

Long live the Queen

Fat Kid said...

Litman said...

Supa
Sit on my face.....yea do it.
Jammers
TBN
Growlers
OC

Jess said...

Litman, where's the commentary?! Or are you hungover AGAIN this week.

Paul - good decision. I wouldn't want to have to excommunicate you.

Litman said...

My commentary generally isn't up to par with everyone else. I just get bored. I'm also eating lunch right now and no I'm not hung over. I'll come up with something here in a minute though. I just think my lack of commentary comes from not giving a fuck about who wins or loses and I don't care to pay attention to your game if I'm not playing in it. I just wanna show up, drink some beers, look at some asses and go to the bar. Is that wrong?

Litman said...

OK Jess...even though I don't give a crap who wins here is the little bit of logic that I will share....

Super Bad wins because Frank is pissed that his Panthers lost to the Bucs on Sunday, and he's double pissed because he walked up the ramp from the 1st level to the 3rd level only to find out his seats were on the other side of the stadium. So he had to walk allllll the way down and then back up on the other side of Ray Jay. And THEN i did some taunting to him at half time in the tunnel talking shit. So yea...Frank is pissed.
I'm also going with the Sit on my FACE pick as an upset pick with Nate. Plus I like the name.
Jammers- Ruben likes lasagna just like me.
TBN- The Ballics have lost their edge over the years. Maybe they improve with Gorecki missing but I'll have to wait and see.
Growlers- <3 Jess
OC- Us Ligers started off with a few great games last year and then we shit the bed....I think we start off shitting the bed this year.

Alison said...

I'll keep all of my picks except the Shocker/Growler one. Switch me over to the Growlers. Too much heat and rivalry with Jess fires her team up for the W.

FRANK said...

Quote of the day by litman, "I just wanna show up, drink some beers, look at some asses and go to the bar. Is that wrong?"

Get over yourselves and this winning people. Play like it's the end! There are no winners, no losers, only fun to be had. No arguing side pitches, no switching catchers, outfielders etc.. Just have fun!

Random 2012!

M. Gorecki said...

Litman, You think the Ballics are better withOUT me?

Are you competing with Flo on how many different colored team shirts you can collect?

And all the seasons I've played (for one team) there, I can't recall a single moment where you significantly contributed to a game. Your kicking and fielding must be just like your penis at all times.. flacid.

-GorecHate out.

DanPBC said...

Frank, I agree with your quote of the day! On the other hand you're full of shit with all this who cares about winning. The wedding and baby making really messed with your head.

FRANK said...

Superbad has scooped up all the fine young ladies that have been tossed to pasture by greedy masochistic, chauvanistic greedy for W's teams this season. It's time to do away with this represive, 4 girl (allegedly) Jammer team mentality. Eventually kickball will be a bunch of arguing dudes with cheerleaders on the sidelines. Who says women and Joe cant pitch during a game? Who say's you cant play all girls in the field? The world is coming to an end people.. It's time to start having sweet baby making kickball love before it's too late! I want to see smiles out there tonight, You can't hug baby's with side arms people!

Smithkey said...

Speaking of that Gorecki....Who holds the records for most number of different teams they played for? Is it still Flo? I have to be damn near close. I believe I am on team number 6 or 7 now going back to the WAKA days and not including KBS.

FRANK said...

babies

Jess said...

Wow, Frank that was inspirational. I know whose name I'm going to write in the ballot this November...

FRANK said...

The way were headed, women's crystal pitcher suffrage will be repealed next season

M. Gorecki said...

Smithkey,

Chandler probably has a spreadsheet for that...

DanPBC said...

Jess, I think you mean December....
