Litman said...

LIGERS get the win over sit on my base since Todd is livid over people streaking at his party and there not being enough 'naked chicks'. He takes his frustration out on the ball and goes 3 for 4 at the plate.
JAMMERS- They are a better team the the Ballics, maybe not better looking but definitely better.
TBN- There's a few Cardinals fan's on this team and TBN is making their early playoff run so they don't have to be in the same position fighting for a playoff spot like the red birds.
PBC- Deeks is taking out his frustration because he lost an arm wrestling match to me at Todds party. Step up your game lil man.
SHOCKERS-meh.
OC- Rays Haw!
And I'm going with the upset special of KICKBALL over rain this week in what will be a shocking surprise.

Sit on my Base - Because the assholes at DPT force us to pick an "upset." If anyone can shit the bed and throw a game away, it's the Ligers.

Jammers - It's going to be a massacre. Ballics lose the game, AND at the bar. Russ, Noble and E-Flo are pretty much the only 'Ballics that go out anymore. Maybe Robb from time to time. The mighty have definitely fallen.

Nuts - Nate and Fast Fucker are back (again), and actually get to play. The mound gets pounded, and Jose gets a baby put inside him.

Growlers - PbC went up early on the Shockers last week... only to completely fall apart. No chance they beat the Growlers. Queen Jess beats gingers for fun on the weekend. And since I just found out that Josh used to be a ginger (and thus still is)... it'll get ugly.

Shockers - Never seen the Shockers play, but Supa is out for fun. I'll go with the rookie team.

OC - Jacked Up strikes out like Karlos Pena (props to Litman for the new spelling).

Paul said...

Ligers - Going with the Ligers, as this will probably be Litman's retirement game, as I assume he's going to jail for streaking Howl-o-scream.

Jammers - Insert comment about the Jammers winning kickball and losing at everything else in life.

Beer Nuts - Dunno anything about JAMP and since we play at the same time this week its going to stay that way.

Growlers - God was angry at me for picking against my team last week and tried his best to smite me at the fields. Get your aim up God!

Shockers - Picking them until they lose.

Jacked up - Most people would look at the beating they received by the Jammers as a negative. I think that dick slap to the face woke this team up and maybe left some "super-seriousness residue" and probably herpes.

Ligers over SoMB
Ligers always bounce back when Chandler talks shit about his own team. Sit on my Barracuda reverts back to their old ways. Ligers win big!

ToeJammers over Alcoballics
Once again, the Ballics get amped up because of a surprise visit from Gorecki, but this time it turns out that it is just two squirrels making sweet love on the business end of a 9-iron. Ballics are crushed in more ways than one.

THEE Beer Nuts over JatMP
The outcome of this one is obvious, but the question remains: How much mound could a mound-pounder pound, if a mound-pounder could pound mound?

PBC over Growlers
Upset alert!!! Growlers slack off and save their energy for drinking at the bar, and of course the tournament. PBC takes advantage and gets the win. Growlers then steal more shit from other teams because that is more fun than actually winning games!

Shockers over Superbad
I’m with Paul, I’ll keep picking the Shockers to win until they play against the ToeJammers or until they play a tournament game.

Off Constantly over Jacked Up
Again, this game would be more fun and competitive if you mixed up the team’s players along with the teams names. The real question would be who would win if it were Up Constantly vs. Jacked Off?

Chandler said...

Best Smatt commentary yet. He's improving.

Smooty said...

It's so much easier when the boss is out of town for the week.

Nate Dawg said...

Good morning DPT, it is looking like we will actually be playing this week!

Ligers - Ligers piss the bed but still get the W. Todd is still pissed about naked dudes and flipped tables at his party.

Jammers - I havent seen the Jammers play this year but by knowing their rep and how they won their first game I'm sure they recruited some solid players from the 6 other leagues they play in.

TBN - This one will be closer than the experts predict. SMatt I will have the answer to your question after we defeat Jose and his pounding crew. Go Cards!

PBC - Upset pick (whoever came up with this thank you, makes the picks so much better and competitive) A Growler can handle only so much DeekSweat.

Shockers - Frank is having too much fun being hype to beat this the most overrated squad in kickball history.

OC - Jacked Up is hard to figure out with getting killed in week 1 and then coming up with an upset 5 inning win last week against SOMB...if Jacked Up plays its best game they still come up just short of beating the OC.

J.W. said...

I'm not 100% sure which week we're on with all the field flooding and God smiting that's been going on, but hopefully I'll guess correctly. We're 2-0, so that makes me think it's week 3, but there are four other teams that are only 1-0. So is this still week 2.5? 2.666? Week 8/3? But then again, the schedule says week 4. Now I'm really confused. Screw it. On to the picks!

SoMB v Ligers

You know, there's been a lot of talk over the years about bad team names, and the Ligers are ALWAYS left out of it. Now, I enjoyed the Napoleon Dynamite film, but keeping the name for this long is pretty excessive. At first it was probably kind of trendy, but now it's just named after a drawing some dancing savant made in an average movie released almost a decade ago. I'm taking SoMBie Pub Crawl, which is demolishing the record for facebook event updates since Summer '12, for the win. Do it for the kids, people.

Ball licks v Jammers

The Ballics weren't much of a challenge last week even in the mud pit called field 2. It's going to be a long game for them this week, so I'll understand when they turn in early instead of hanging out at the bar. It's what old ass Gorecki (is the retirement home in Atlanta pretty nice, Gorecki?) would do, too. Jammers win like so much volleyball.

Moundpounders v TBN

I showed up late to the game in our first week so I didn't get to see TBN play, but looking at the score it looks like they're pretty awful. If I thought the Ligers were better than SoMB I might say that I'm picking two upsets this week, but JaMP gets their first kickball win tonight. I hope.

PBC v Growlers

PBC has really been awful this year. Rumor has it that the 4 run loss in the first week and the 6 run loss last week has caused all but two of PBC's girls to quit. Growlers win by forfeit.

Superbad v Shockers

Definitely the game of the week between two of the strongest contenders for the title this season. The Shockers are definitely the best rookie team in the league right now and I think the lack of tape on them will allow them to surprise a few more teams, including Superbad tonight.

Off Constantly v Jacked Up

Over the summer we played Jacked Up with something like 5 guys and 8 girls. We walked off to a 1-0 victory behind awesome pitching from Jack (me) and a game winning kick that was also from Jack (also me). I assume they've once again name their team Jack in honor of me and the kickball lessons I taught them last season, such as calling one of them a pussy for taking a walk. Wow, I'm kind of an arrogant dick for a tubby bald guy. Off Constantly wins easily, anyway.

Nate Dawg said...

JW - James, Faz and I werent at our first game vs the Ballics...that game would have been totally different if we had been there.

Jess said...

SOMB v. Ligers
In a rare moment of non-feisty weakness, er compassion, I returned their block rocker so expect the SOMBers and their new crew of ringers to come at Ligers like a bunch of spider monkeys.

Ballics v. Jammers
Haven’t stopped laughing at Smooty’s Gorecki joke and the fact that he STILL doesn’t know how to spell commissioner (you’d think after 49 years of life he would’ve figured it out by now). Gorecki or not, Ballics still have more fun than Jammers, and we all know fun doesn’t equal winning, just take it from Jacked Up and THEE Beer Nuts.

MoundPound v. TBN
I think this might actually be a close one but with non-captain Nate and FF back in the line-up, TBN is the one pounding mound.

PBC v. Growlers
The Kickball Gods shine on us with good Karma for returning the block rocker and we get our first W of the season. Even if they don’t, we still go to the bar and drink like we have 20 year-old livers and don’t have to work in the morning.

Supa v. Shockers
I think the old Superbad would take this hands down but with SupaRandom showing up tonight I think Shockers win since they are SupaSerious and SupaDeliberate. I want to add SupaDouchey in there too but since I really don’t have a problem with the Shockers except some of them are vying with the Jammers for team-who-takes-kb-way-too-serious and I think it’s gay they had to take a vote on coming back to GKB, I’m going to say that I wanted to say it without actually saying but in essence still saying it. Ya hearrrrdddd?!

OC v. Jacked Up
I didn’t know Jacked Up beat SOMB until just now, as I’m writing this last pick. Dammit. That really throws a wrench in my plans. Ehh, whatever, I’m too lazy to re-pick so OC Wins. I think I saw some of them at a bar one time and I think they were cool so there ya go.

Fat Kid said...

Ligers- there is only so much shit in the human body to allow the ligers to keep shitting the bed every week. Ligers win, without shitting the bed.

TJs- because losing is for losers

BNs- i love nuts

Growlers- with the league finding that DeeksweaT is not as potent as it once was, growlers get their first dubs

Supa- Since everyone else is picking Shockers can this be my upset pick?

Jacked Up- To piggy back on Paul's comment, once u get slapped with a Jammer Dick, greatness happens (or herpes).

JD said...

Ligers over SOMB
SOMB beat us bad, but we suck something awful. It's early, so the veterans won't be sleepy.

Jammers over Ballics
Only real competition over who is more desperate to get laid, Rubs v Trini

TBN over Jose
Jose can't handle the mighty midgets and their infield hits.

Growlers over PBC
You people are idiots for picking us. We're so bad, we miss Alicia (we'll some of us). If Alicia was still on our team she'd be only the 5th slowest girl.....5th!!!! We have four players slower than Alicia. READ THAT AGAIN JOSH.

Shockers over Super
This is an upset pick, because we had the lead after a couple of innings against them, which makes them underdogs.

OC over JU
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God. - Leviticus 19:34

Smithkey said...

Give me Litman's picks. Too busy facebooking for commentary

Nate Dawg said...

Is Deeks automatically given one loss since he didnt pick an upset and just "told" us that the Shockers are the underdog to Supa which is ridiculous...if anything that is the most even game of the week.

JD said...

Not my fault you foolishly have faith in my team.

Chandler said...

Haha I gave him SoMB instead

JD said...

Ok, I'll take SOMB. I have us losing DPT.

Chandler said...

Fixed

Alison said...

Sit On My Base v. Ligers
Litman can’t handle the innuendo in this game and starts intentionally overthrowing balls and working for the other team.

Alcoballics v. Jammers
The Ballics are off to a fun season but the Jammers win with an wire-tight strategy that each person executes. However, CLEARLY our custom uniforms are better.

Jose and the MoundPounders v. THEE Beer Nuts
JATMP put up a couple runs against Supa in week one so they can’t be all bad. Could be a closer game than we all think. But I still think non-captain Nate will not-care not-his-team to victory.

Pitches Be Crazy v. Growlers
PBC is about the fun and Growlers are about drinking. Will probably be a fun game to watch. If it does happen to be a tie I hope they determine it with a foot race. After Deeks’ comments I’m interested to see this.

SuperBad v. Shockers
Vets over the newbies. Also, I just think Supa is a good team and the Purple People can be inconsistent.

Off Constantly v. Jacked Up
OC wins the game but never the Liger blue color.

J.W. said...

The number of pickers seems to be receding more than my hairline. What's up with that? Yella, wtf aren't you picking anymore?

Glad Gorecki's gone. (alliteration)

Nate Dawg said...

Deeks I had to pick someone and I thought you had the best chance...

Jess said...

Yea we suck ass too so I'm wouldn't really say PBC is an upset pick
