Game 2 - Now it places the lotion in the basket

That's from Silence of the Lambs. That movie is 20 years old. I can't believe it either. What I can believe is that THE TEAM won 15-3 against Rapid Inebriation. Holding a team to 3 runs in slow pitch softball is something to be proud of. That puts THE TEAM at 1 and 1 and getting better. In a strange turn of events, Melody hurt her leg and had to be moved from the outfield to the infield. It turns out she can play some second base. How lucky is that! CJ has her glove in mid-season form. Justin is turning out to be a valuable addition to THE TEAM.

THE TEAM batted .438 with 2 Home Runs, a double and a triple. We also walked 7 times and struck out 6 times.

It looks like that whole Raiders of the Lost Ark thing already went to hell. Headpiece to the Staff of Ra? How silly. In keeping with the Silence of the Lambs we will award The Plum Island Animal Disease Research Center for the outstanding effort this week. Now that's an award!

Justin gets the Plum Island Animal Disease Research Center award for another great double play. He went 2 for 2 with 2 Home Runs, a walk and 5 RBIs.

Melody gets the Plum Island Animal Disease Research Center award for the ladies. She went 1 for 3 with two walks but had some great stops at second base.

Good job everyone

It's so much more fun when we win


P.S. I am missing two RBIs on the stats. We have Justin (5) Lou(4) Chris (2) Andrew (1) and Rick (1). That's only 13 but we scored 15. What did I miss? Any help?

Game 1 - Oh my friends! I'm so pleased your not dead.

That quote is from Raiders of the Lost Ark. That movie is 30 years old. Time flies, ask anybody. A couple of season ago I tried to base the blog posts on The Big Lebowski. I did a terrible job so now I am going to try to see if we can have them all somehow relate to Raiders of the Lost Ark. Doesn't that sound like a horrible idea? Yes!

First things first, let's get acquainted with the Winter 2011 Roster. It looks like this:

00 Carrie
2 Tiffany playing as Liz
3 Lou
4 Jenny
15 Robbin
16 Melody playing as Dody
18 Rick
24 Peter
25 Andrew
27 Roma
42 Justin
99 Chris

Look at all that talent! Seriously, look at it. OK enough.

Game 1 was a tough loss. We were tied 12-12 and ended up losing in the tie-breaker. On the other hand there was a lot of promise. We have a solid core to build on. The Championship Dream Lives!

THE TEAM batted .543 with 2 Home Runs, 2 Walks and 4 Strikeouts. Andrew went 4 for 4 with 2RBIs. Roma has found her stroke with solid contact on her second at-bat and a genuine single in her third at-bat. Melody/Dody made a great play in Right Field. Justin turned a double-play. Everybody on THE TEAM showed great effort but now it is time to award the outstanding players. In keeping with the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme we will go with the headpiece to the Staff of Ra.

Lou gets the headpiece to the Staff of Ra for going 4 for 4 with a Home Run and 5 RBIs. He also did a solid job pitching

Sarah gets the headpiece to the Staff of Ra for going 2 for 3 with a double and 2 RBIs. I realize she is not officially on the roster but it was a great help and a great effort by someone who has plenty of history with THE TEAM.
