Game 6 Recap Part Deux

That was a bit of a rough game yesterday. Thanks to everyone for hanging in there and pulling out a W against those guys. Was it just me or did that first baseman remind anyone else of former WWE wrestler Headbanger Thrasher? (see photo) I think it was Peter that made the initial connection but the more I think about it, the more I can't get it out of my head.

Anyway, the first inning was rough especially for me. It felt like I gave up 14 runs but later I found out it was "only" six. It's hard when the pitching gets to your head and the other team is just standing there doing nothing. Alas, persistence, patience and some tight defense helped us catch up and eventually grind out a win. We all know how much it sucks to have the other team come from behind and win, so it's especially rewarding when it's our Cinderella story that graces the front page of the Burbank sports section.

As Rick said, it was important that none of us came unglued and we held it together. It's games like that that make me proud of how far our team has come and how well we are coming together. I think the only game we've lost so far was the first game of the season (I think), which means we're on a 5-game winning streak. Here's to more.

I didn't think much of that guy painting up until later. Who puts on all that eye black for a Sunday Coed Game? What a tool.

I dunno which is toolier, the face paint or the team that brought the music. Either way, VICTORY IS OURS.
