Game 6 - Fugetaboudit

So, Game 6 happened. We played against Fugetaboudit who we have creamed the last 2-3 times we played them.  We struggled with the heat and we struggled to get some real offense going.  When thinking about this game overall, I think we should just Fugetaboudit. (ZING! See what I did there?)

Games 4 and 5

Game 4 was The Expendables vs. The Team.  I think The Expendables got their asses handed to them 25-3 in the first game so they were probably feeling pretty used and abused by the time The Team took the field.  Their pitching staff had problems nailing the plate so we drew a lot of walks the first two innings which got a lot of people in base.  A few people were able to make good contact and bring the runs in so we had a strong lead going after 2 innings and held it throughout the game.

Handjob tacos go to Rick for a sweet line drive down the third base side that stayed fair and brought in three runs, including himself, and also to Robin for making a smart throw back to first base to get the final out of the game after the runner already had a leadoff that was rounding third.

Game 5 was The Team vs. The Shakeweights which saw Chris pitch a shutout but have his perfect game blown in the fifth inning with an errant walk.  Also, Lou hit for the Cycle and Roma went 4-for-4.  Or maybe The Shakeweights failed to show up for the game BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARED OF US and we won by forfeit and all got home in time for the sunset.  Yeah, that's the ticket!

Happy Father's Day!

Game 3

For Game 3, we played against Lambda Lambda Lambda (who I believe were known as H1We1 the last time we played them).  They weren't nearly as douchey this time which I appreciated.

It was a close game and The Team almost lost it during that one inning where we gave up a lot of runs.  In fact, it came down to the final inning as Lambda had the tying and winning runs on base but The Team's defense rallied to shut down their comeback.  I think the final score was something like 15-13.

I don't do a great job of keeping statistics like Rick so I don't know who is getting tacos or handjobs this week.  Everyone did a good job and I'm glad we all hung in there to slug it out for the W.

Game 2 - Memories shared serve each differently

You win some. You lose some. Sometimes you can't be sure. In all the seasons THE TEAM has been around we have endured some bad calls and some scrambled logic from the umpires. There was really only one guy that seemed to not care about the game. (Does anybody remember that clown that used to sit on the bucket and talk to his friends through the fence?) Anyway. It always seemed like the umpires were doing their best and you just have to figure on calls being blown or details being missed. Now not counting the runs correctly is a pretty major detail. Even when it was all over he was trying say something along the lines of just slapping some score on the card that said that Smash won.

We could go on and on.

According to my statistics THE TEAM batted .528 with 3 home runs, one double, one triple, four walks and three stirkouts. There is a good chance that all of that is true.

Lou for hit a grand slam and that is always awesome but the Robert Evans un-holy handjob goes to Dave who went 3 for 3 with 2 homeruns, an triple and 6 RBIs. Welcome back Dave!

A Robert Evans un-holy handjob for Robbin who had 4 RBIs on the day. She also showed lots of hustle on those home runs.
