Off Constantly v. THEE Beer Nuts
I’m going with the underdog pick, mainly because I was going to pick them any way.
THEE Beer Nuts

Alcoballics v. Growlers
Alcoballics have earned some respect this season, which they won’t lose with a loss to the Growlers, a tough team. No, Alcoballics will lose all respect with a loss to the Ligers later this week.
Growlers

Jose and the Moundpounders v. Sit On My Base
Jose still hasn’t done anything this season to show that he doesn’t deserve to wear pink.
Sit On My Base

Pitches Be Crazy v. Ligers
Ooooo, toughy, but with the Ligers clearly showing domination over Jacked Up without key players Steve & Bryan… it should be a liger win against PBC with a full roster back this week.
Ligers

ToeJammers v. SuperBad
Looks like the lights are going out early this week @ 8:45.

TBN- was picking them anyways just like Todd
Ballics- They aren't sucking as hard as I assumed they would this year.
SOMB- Jose sucks.
Ligers- Like the ballics I'm surprised we don't suck as hard either.
Jammers- Jam.
Shockers- Shock.

OC d Nuts
Nate gets confused and depressed when he finds out he doesn't actually play for the Cardinals. The disappointment carries over to the team he does play for yet still hopes "we" beat the Giants tonight.


Growlers d Ballics
Always bet on black?


SOMB d Jose
Hate crime?

PBC d Ligers
Eryca, Michelle, Jennifer and Candace will be there so we're spotting them at least 12 outs. Justin's blossoming love for Chandler drives him to show-off by leading Team Awful to victory.

TJ over Supa
Dick pitching rules!

Shockers d Jacked Up
JU remembers why they left.

Smooty said...

TBN over OC
Upset, Upset, Upset!!! Just like the Giants are going to win game 7.

Growlers over Ballics
Ballics get destroyed!!! Gorecki is still skinny, old-looking and grey haired.

SoMB over JatM
Someone has to win! This is the kind of game where both teams should get participation medals!

Ligers over PBC
Ligers OK, PBC bad! Of course, Ligers will play down to their competition, but they'll still win.

ToeJammers over SuperBad
I'm pretty sure there is going to be a big brawl in this game. Look for several ejections here.

Shockers over Jacked Up
Jacked up has the same chance of winning this game as HTP-Todd voting for Romney.

OC
Growlers

SoMB - I was going to choose JaMP at first but Nate beat me to it...now I'm not interested in Sloppy Seconds.

PBC - Seems like I'm always picking against the Ligers for my upset pick. Do the Ligers actually have any good teams on their schedule?

Jammers
Shockers

Fat Kid said...

OC over TBN- Beardface goes apeshit in the 1st inning when the first kicker pops out in the infield, scares the rest of his team into kicking better and win big.

Growlers over Ballics- Growlers eek out a close win over a surprisingly improved ballic team. wonder what changed from last season....

SOMB over Jose - hopefully pinkies can get a "W" at some point this season...

PBC over Ligers- upset pick? are the ligers really that good or PBC really that bad?

Jammers over Supa - last time we played Supa it was a 1-0 loss, zero arguments and lots of close calls. Best game to be a part of last season, looking for more of the same tonite, only with the jammers taking the victory this time. thats right, ZERO arguments and FUN game from these two teams last season...

Shockers over Jacked - still have yet to see this new team, but from all the roid rage stories ive read, this team could be the "asshole" team instead of the jammers.... maybe....(probably not...)

First, I'd like to send out a happy Labour Day to all the New Zealanders out there. New Zealand's Labour Day celebrates the time a guy decided he only wanted to work 8 hours a day back in 1840. Wikipedia never lies, does it? Secondly, I'd like to ask about the bar plans for tonight. Is it a YoA night or is it Stoney's? Is Stoney's only for the partial make up game night? Please let me know so I can make the necessary arrangements. On to the picks!

OC v TBN

Lots of folks have very little faith in an inconsistent OC this season. We went to WAKA for a couple seasons, but we didn't become fully terrible, people. We slept walked through the Jacked Up game, but we did just beat Supa by 4 or 5 runs. Maybe TBN will go up 3-1 early and then allow us to score three unanswered runs? I think that only happens to the Cardinals, though. OC wins big.

Ballics v Growlers

What is all this talk about the Ballics not being that bad? Sure, Gorecki and his AARP discount are no longer with the team, but that one addition by subtraction move hasn't made them world beaters. The Growlers are looking like their old selves, and while Gorecki is tucking himself into bed after a great early bird special from the Atlanta Luby's, the Ballics will be getting the tapioca pudding beat out of them.

JaMP v SoMB

In the battle of the Nole teams, there are no real winners. SoMB will have more runs at the end, though.

PBC v Ligers

I'm taking PBC for my upset pick, but only because the Ligers suck.

Jammers v Randomization

Not surprised that Supa was involved in a game with no arguments. They were awesome last week and we had what I think was a completely incident free game. If you can do that with the OC, you can do that with anyone. They'll prove their good sportsmanship again this week when the Jammers rough them up a little.

Shockers v Jacked Up

Shockers are going to shove the shit out of some people today. Great first impression, rookie team.

Chandler said...

I'm pushing the Ligers to Stoney's. At least for a drink to check it out. It could be as awesome as it is tournament days... or it could be rapey and stabby.

We won't know until we get there.

i want to get raped.

Off Constantly v. THEE Beer Nuts
Off Constantly played LIGHTS OUT last week as those of you who watched the game remember. Some of TBN players are world travelers this week so they won’t have all of their usual talent. My heart says Off Constantly but forcing the upset pick that screwed me last week is making me pick TBN this week. All I can hope for is that most of the OC players can’t make it and/or get drunk on DI and don’t make it to the game. Maybe OC will be having so much fun that they don’t notice TBN rounding the bases right under their noses. At least I have the same picks this week as other people.

Alcoballics v. Growlers
The Growlers will be off their game without their feisty leader and without their usual it’s-kickball-Thursday-and-almost-Friday spring in their step, but that doesn’t mean they will forget how to play kickball. The Ballics played better last week but since PBC didn’t hold us to an errorless game it helped open the door for that Ballic win. While everyone is fallible, there is just no excuse for some things and I don’t see the Growlers making as many of those errors. I don’t foresee a blowout, but I will predict another Growler notch in the belt.

I hope Jess makes picks on her phone from Peru. That would show her real dedication to this carnival of kickball glory.

Jose and the Moundpounders v. Sit On My Base
Just because a team is new sure doesn’t mean they can’t be easy too. Since base-sitting is harder in some situations than mound-pounding, Jose will be going down this week and taking it in the pink…again.

Pitches Be Crazy v. Ligers
While some of the Ligers have certainly been doing their own brand of sucking this season, PBC played awful last week. Not sure if they were actually missing some key players or if that’s just how they roll this season. This game could easily get go back and forth, but I’m going to pick the Ligers to pull their “magic” out. Why change their M.O. from recent weeks?

ToeJammers v. SuperBad
Supa had a very fun-looking dance party last week after their loss to OC and for the most part do seem to be embracing their “fun” moniker this season. ToeJammers on the other hand, are not. They are all business and ready to get down to it just about anywhere. TJ’s give in to their carnal winning desires and find a vulnerable Supa an easy target this week. Who knows…maybe they’ll bond on the ride over to the bar.

Shockers v. Jacked Up
I think it’s probably No Shoving Monday so Jacked Up is safe in that regard…for now. I don’t see the shockers blowing this one.


See you pompinaras at Stoney’s!!!
