Soul Glo goes Pink, Sticks 6 in the Stink


"Sometimes you're the fart....Sometimes you're the elevator.
 Tonight, we were the fart."
                
 - Yellabird






The Toejammers tangled with long-time WAKA rival Off Constantly last night and came out smelling like roses. Pretty pink roses. After going up 1-0 after two innings, the Toejammers unleashed the offense in the third to the tune of 5 more runs before closing up shop. OC was able stave off being shut out thanks to a 4-out inning late in the game for a final tally of 6-3.


Game Notes:
- A hate crime was avoided by acts of good sportsmanship in the second inning when Fat Kid decided to use Jack as an airbag to slow him down heading to third base. Fat Kid steps off the bag (and thus getting tagged out) to make sure Jack and his little red cap were alright. 

- For the first time in at least two seasons, Hess did not have any rape juice to offer up. 

- Fat Kid lost a bet on his Giants beating Ruben's Eagles last week, meaning he had to bear the awkwardly form-fitting Superman boxers this week.

- And of course, with October being national Breast Cancer Awareness month, we decided to go all NFL and represent for the cause:

 Free breast exams all month long

First, I was wearing a camo hat, not a red hat, Griff.

Fat Kid (don't know the guy's real name) is a good guy and showed good sportsmanship there. It's only natural to feel bad when you put someone on their ass in a kickball game. That said, I'm a fat guy myself and I'm not going to get hurt in a collision with anyone on the kickball fields. The only time I get hurt is when I slide, which wasn't a pleasant story.

I'd have made the same play if I were the runner, except I would have stayed on the bag because I don't trust any of you fuckers. Now we all see why.

Also, Beardface was safe at first. His foot was on the base when the ball hit him. Let Rubs know he's gotta be quicker with that throw.

Congrats on beating off constantly. Impressive one handed post.

That's also what I saw as the first base ref. It was a bang-bang play and everyone should be thankful they had a first base ref who was actually playing attention, made calls immediately and didn't take back or waiver on any of them. So suck it.

Griff said...

Jack, two things...my bad about the hat color..but I'm not really sure how you guys tagging christian out when he was trying to make sure you were ok is any indicator that we would have done the same. I wasn't pointing it out to dog him for doing it.

And Jess, yes it def was a bang-bang play...it didn't go our way but the rest of the game I thought went pretty smoothly thanks to you and Souder's reffing. Btw, I had no idea Tony came up and said something to you afterwards...we spoke to him about this sorta thing at the end of last season and he seemed To be doing alright...i'll talk to him this week.

The "you" in that comment was meant for the entire GKB league, but after re-reading the sentence I see that it was worded awkwardly. My bad.

That said, if our actions are not representative of the rest of the league, then we'll keep the advantage of making plays during moments of weak-hearted sportsmanship. Call us ass holes if you like, but I'm not ashamed to take that out. Sorry, Christian.

meh (shrugs shoulders) its certainly not the first time that i got called out when i was trying to be a good sportsman and it wont be the last either. I care more about showing up and having a good time with my buddies than being a dick on the field and arguing calls. If me showing concern over another player gets me called out, i can live with that.

Jess said...

Thanks, Griff! Tony was a dick during the game, screaming saracasms to me across the field but it was all good afterwards. No hard feelings! After all, I've probably, maybe, possibly been known to scream obscenities across the field before....maybe :)

Griff said...

Na man I don't think u guys were assholes for doing it...I'm just glad something like that didn't escalate to something bigger (as I've heard from other games)...

Being the fart is definitely the way to go. That quote will probably end up on my gravestone.
