Game 1 - Do it for The King

That was a tough loss. The truth is that they are all tough losses but Can U Dig It could hit and they had some talent in the outfield. Holding THE TEAM to 6 runs doesn't happen very often. Brutal.

Here is how THE TEAM looks for the Fall 2011 Season:

2 Katie
3 Lou
4 Jenny
8 Jad
10 Melody
11 Dave
15 Dora
16 Beth
17 Amy
18 Rick
19 Doug
24 Peter
25 Andrew
38 Michelle
99 Chris

THE TEAM batted .469 with two home runs, two triples, one walk and four strikeouts. We started strong and went cold.

We are going to go with an Elvis theme to acknowledge outstanding effort this season. Lou went 2 for 3 with 2 hime runs and 2 RBIs. Andrew went 3 for 3 with 2 triples and 2 RBIs. They both get peanutbutter and banana sandwiches.

Dora went 2 for 3 so she gets Gladys' favorite, the pink Cadillac.

There was lots of hustle out there and there are still 9 games left to win

The First Practice Game - Fall 2011

There are lots of new faces on THE TEAM. They are talented and athletic faces too. Well, if you can have an athletic face. The important thing is that they have athletic arms and legs and hands to go with their athletic kissers.

THE TEAM beat The Fockers 17-16 by batting .615 with two triples and three home runs. The other encouraging detail is that THE TEAM had zero strikeouts. OK there was one but that was by a player who recently had surgery and was not supposed to play so I say we give a free pass on that and go with zero Ks.

There has been no effort to come up with what the mythical award will be for outstanding effort in a game. The last time I asked for suggestions I received exactly zero so...

Jad went 5 for 5 in her debut for THE TEAM. Amy went 2 for 4 with an RBI. Let's give them both the "Damn Dirty Hippy" Award.

Chris went 3 for 5 with a triple and 4 RBIs but the "Damn Dirty Hippy" Award has to go to Lou who went 4 for 4 with 3 Home Runs including two grand slams for a total of 9 RBIs.

It was a great effort by everyone. We are all Damn Dirty Hippies.
