Putting the Hell in H League - Game 1

That title doesn't exactly make sense but who cares. The Summer Season got off to a great start with a 21-5 stomping of Los Dodgers. They should have called themselves Los Orioles. Actually let me take that back. They were a nice bunch of people who did not have a lot of softball experience so making fun of them here just seems like something Victor would do.

Let's take a moment and toot our own horns though. The lopsided score was not a case of THE TEAM cashing in on another teams horrible errors. THE TEAM played a game we can be proud of. We hit .588 with two home runs and 9 walks. Our defense was strong and our signage was first class. There was lots of hustle going on out there.

As far as a mythical award to acknowledge the outstanding players of the game goes, I received exactly zero suggestions. Thanks for all your help you bums.

Let's go with a scoop of ice cream in a Blue Milton Bradley mini-helmet. Lou went 5 for 5 with 6 RBIs but it has to go to Peter who hit two home runs and had seven RBIs.

The scoop of ice cream in a Pink Milton Bradley mini-helmet is another close call. Jenny went 2 for 2 with two walks and and 1 RBI but CJ went 2 for 2 with 2 walks and 2 RBIs. Hey that's too close to call, Jenny and CJ both win. (It's not like I have to come with any actual ice cream)

It was a good game by all even if Lisa was limping through it. We can look forward to going undefeated in the first half and getting the hell out of H League.

No worries - I treated myself to a mythical scoop of ice cream for my DOUBLE! I can count the number of doubles I've made in my lifetime on two hands, probably!
