F Championship Game

Well, that was a heartbreaker.  THE TEAM started off really strong in the first inning hitting through the lineup and scoring a few runs.  Fuggetaboudit also scored and they held a 1-run lead after the first inning.  Clearly, this was going to be a close one.

THE TEAM was able to shut them down during at least two innings and went into the last inning with a 5-run lead.  Sadly, Forget About It mounted an impressive comeback including a bloop shot down the left field foul line with the bases loaded that no one could have fielded well.  The Forgets About Its ended up tying the game with THE TEAM had only having one out, and then they scored the winning run moments later.

I can't speak for everyone but I was pretty crushed by it.  We seem pretty evenly matched with Fuggetaboudit and we did give a good effort.  At least it wasn't a 31-7 blowout or anything.  Perhaps Forget About it is the Lex Luthor to our Superman, the Magneto to our Professor X, the plate of nachos to the goal of dropping that last 10 pounds.

This was THE TEAM's second championship game in its history (we didn't win that one either).  I'm proud that we made it to the championship game again and even got ourselves bumped up to the F league.

But I still want that f**king champion blue shirt!

How do I say this without sounding like a poor sport? They didn't "earn" it. They purposely took some walks that were hittable balls (bush league) and scored only on errors, not hits. We played really well defensively, except for the first and last innings, and that will kill ya'. And if I'm correct, the final was 16-15 them, and as I mentioned before, we score 16 runs, we always win. Yeah, that one stung a little. But considering we were without Papa Smurf and Lori was gimpy, we hit really well, ran the bases aggressively, and Chris pitched a gem. We will win that blue shirt, I have no doubt.
