Season is winding down. Get them in before 4pm Thursday.

Sit on My Base

Jose and the Moundpounders. underdog pick.

Off Constantly v.Shockers
Shockers: O.C. should be an underdog pick. Shockers.

SuperBadv.Alcoballics
SuperBad: It’s been a bad week for Red.

Ligers v.THEE Beer Nuts
Ligers. Game of the week. This could go either way, but it’s been a good week for blue.

By the way... can't make it this week, so no MotorShocker or air-kick-karaoke.
Nope, ain't gonna make it.... this OBAMA victory party is CRAZZZZZY!
Oprah just did a body shot off of Nancy Pelosi, and Kenya West (yes he recently changed his name [slightly] in honor of Obama's birthplace) & Kim Kardashian just out Macarena-d Arianna Huffington & a homeless dude.

Growlers over SomB
Sit on My Base should have never given the trophy back to us. The Growlers haven’t lost a game while in possession of the trophy. In fact, SomB may not have lost a game while in possession of the trophy. Either way, this one gets ugly quick. The only way SomB wins anything tonight is if they steal it. Kudos to them if they are able to steal one of the following from us: Horse Towel (if Big John brings it), one of my crutches, or Robert’s knee brace. Good luck SomB.

Jacked Up over JatMP
This one is going to be like the smallest/weakest kid in school beating up a handicapped kid. Jacked up, do us all a favor and yell “TIMMY!!!” as loud as you can when you win by forfeit.

OC over Shockers
I’m picking OC as my upset pick. Logically, if Jose is always an upset pick, whoever is playing the Shockers should always be an upset pick. It’s a mathematical and scientific fact, deal with it. I’ll back it up with graphs and pie-charts later.

ToeJammers over PBC
Can the Jammers stop the bleeding after a two game losing streak (Monday doesn’t count)? This racist says “yes they can!” The only way that PBC can win this one is if Hess mistakenly fills up his spray bottle with DeekSweat and feeds it to his teammates. Imagine the nausea that would ensue. It would be like the “pukefest” from the movie Stand by Me. Actually, now that I think about it, DeekSweat consumption might give you super special homerun powers. Hmmm… that’s something to think about. Either way, Jammers win.

Superbad over Ballics
Pilgrims vs. Indians theme, I Can’t wait. This game shouldn’t be played at the same time as the Ligers/BeerNuts game. Whoever made the schedule should be fired. Usually I look forward to (other teams) theme games because the girls usually dress up as a “sexy” version of the theme. I’m looking forward to seeing the ballic girls dressed like Indians. I however, am a little concerned about superbad’s costumes though. You just don’t hear the words “sexy” and “pilgrim” in the same sentence. Please don’t let us down Missy!
That being said, I like the timing of this theme game, it being close to Thanksgiving and all. Also, everyone knows the story of Thanksgiving, but everyone forgets how the settlers in early America annihilated the Indians using force and going even as far as using germ warfare. I think it would add some flavor to this game if Superbad brought blankets to the game, pretended they were covered in Tuberculosis, and threw them at the ballics. Not only would this help us maintain our rating as the most racist kickball league, we could stay warm in doing so. Make it happen, SuperBad.

Ligers over TBN
If Todd we’re playing this week, he’d pretty much be rendered useless due to fatigue from stroking it to Obama all week. Even without Todd, Ligers win due to their diversity on the field. They were diverse before, but now that Dawn has been deemed a Mexican (Shoutbox doesn’t lie), they can’t lose. Watch out though, Ligers. Dawn might defect from the team after this season and start her own team. Dawn and the MoundPounders. That has a nice ring to it!

Smatt... you're getting Jose since you didn't actually pick an upset pick.

Paul said...

Growlers
JAMP
Shockers
Jammers
Alcoballics
Beer Nuts

Smooty said...

I did pick an upset. And If I had to pick one that you specified, why would I choose the team that isn't going to show up?

J.W. said...

Todd wins commentary for his second post. Bravo, Todd. Backing up the great karaoke performance with that is solid.

I'll take whoever Litman picks blindly because I have such a terrible picks record and he is in real first place and not I picked one week first place.

We should be an upset pick because of the Shockers have clearly played WAY better than us all season. That said, we did beat them in the second inning of KC rules in Big Guava over the summer. Then again we've been lazy as shit in this league, so who knows what the real OC is anymore. We've allowed multiple runs to awful teams, which never used to happen.

Supa CJ said...

Growlers over SomB
JatMP over Jacked Up
OC over Shockers
ToeJammers over PBC
Superbad over Ballics
TBN over Ligers.

sorry no shit talking from me today. too much work. :( but i will shoot me an indian tonight.

Chandler said...

Then pick one of the other two.

So far today your report card looks like this:

- Does not follow directions.
- Does not play well with others.

Josh said...

PbC is pulling a Jose this week and forfeiting.

Just letting you know in case anyone is still dumb enough to pick us.

Smooty said...

I'll take PBC then.

So far, your report card looks like:

- Does not posses the intellectual qualities to understand the concept of an upset.

Smooty said...

FUCK!!! Who's idea was it to have upsets?

Smooty said...

So, are JatMP actually going to show up tonight?

Chandler said...

Here's how intelligent I am:

The purpose of the upset pick is so there's more variety in the selections. If OC was allowed to be an "upset" (which they aren't due to recent historical record), then everyone would pick OC.

I doubt Jose shows up tonight. Maybe you should try SoMB?

Litman said...

Wow JW I like the respect!! I'm tempted to just pick all losers because it would be funny to see you have to buy drinks and I would just cancel out all the ones that I've won....but I wont do that. Plan on collecting drinks tonight!! I've been hot lately. Won a few hundo on the cruise, hit a few parlays on line and went 4-0 in NFL picks against the spread, and took down the office pool at work for a quick $80.
Litmans stone cold locks:
Growlers
Jacked Up
Shockers
PBC
Supa
Ligers

Smooty said...

Chandler,

I will take SomB then.

And I will take the Shockers, not OC.

Love Always,

Smooty

You still have me with JatMP, I want Jacked Up!

Now give me my gold star!!!

Sit On My Base v. Growlers
Smooty went back to skool this week and is ready to drop some kickball knowledge this week. Growlers win an easy one but have fun. Jess is back, and the world is now a better place. But sadly, there are less ¡’s in our life.

Jose and the Moundpounders v. Jacked Up
I don’t even think Jose shows up tonight, but if they do I hope they can take down Jacked Up for my upset pick. I also hope pretty lavender stays around to hang out for a bit since they probably won’t have a game tonight.

Off Constantly v. Shockers
The good thing about this game is that if the Shockers even attempt to shove someone from the OC all hell with break out. The Mayor of DI doesn’t allow for that nonsense. Chairs would be flying and Breadface would transform (Hulk style) and engulf the fields with the wrath of his angry beard. Since they play before me I hope that all the Shockers keep their hands and feet to themselves. If not, I guess we’re all going to the bar early. I could see the game going either way but I’ll lean Shockers on this one.

Pitches Be Crazy v. ToeJammers
With so much talk about Mexicans this week in the Southbox I was looking forward to seeing the Jammer’s out there ready to mow some lawns. But alas, with a forfeit, no such luck. Since the Jammers don’t even come out to YOA on a normal week we surely won’t see them there tonight. So, yeah…..nothing exciting here. At least the Pitches announced it ahead of time.

SuperBad v. Alcoballics
Best games of the night being played in the last time slot tonight!

The SuperBallics will be representing Thanksgiving with Pilgrims and Indians theme. Who are the Indians? The Ballics, of course. We are the red team. Why wouldn’t we want to be just a little racist and still have some fun? Corn, cranberry, and pumpkin will all make an appearance. Possibly some smallpox blankets too. Oh yeah…and Frank the “Ghetto” Pilgrim. I have no freaking clue what a ghetto pilgrim is, but I’m sure looking forward to his costume. Smooty, you might have all the eye candy you need right there! Misssssssssssssssy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hi! That is all. :) Oh, the game? Right. Both teams are playing with a random kicking lineup tonight so that opens the door a little for the Ballics. However, in the end I think Supa will take us down like Massachusetts Bay Colony did to the local Pequot Tribe. Let us give thanks. Don’t watch, Dawn.

Ligers v. THEE Beer Nuts
The Ligers have a chance at the game at the Olympics tonight. A number of key TBN players, both on the field of kickball and of drinking, are out of town. The Ligers have a few players back in the saddle this week (albeit not Todd) so the odds are tipping in their favor. If you have one of the earlier games I highly recommend you stick around and watch either the Beer Olympics or the SuperBallic game. Both are always a good time. Ligers FTW!


DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR LETTERS TO SANTA ON THE "BELIEVE" STATIONARY TONIGHT! HELP OUR OUR LEAGUE-MATE WHO WORKS FOR MAKE A WISH AND DO SOME GOOD TO KICK OFF THE HOLIDAY SEASON!!!

Alison said...

Good job, Smooty! Week nine and you've got it down!

Litman said...

whats the point in picking mound pounders? I know they are an automatic loss so you get the win...but why not all take the loss and gain ground on a game where you at least have a 50 50 chance? I'm slow sometime and foggy from the cruise....but am I missing something?
