The Honey Badgers

The Honey Badgers had some people that could hit the ball to the freakin' moon. They also had something like 1000 people on their team so it seemed like everybody only got two at-bats. It didn't help them that THE TEAM defense is tough and held them to 3 runs until the last inning. The other thing about having 1000 people is a couple of them are bound to be a**holes. ( Our women are trained? What a dumb fucking ape!)

Who cares about them!

It was another awesome Sunday with THE TEAM winning 16-8. Where to begin...

It started with Doug and Amy bringing red socks for THE TEAM. Jad kept it going by wearing them even though she likes the Yankees. THE TEAM had two walks and 5 hits in the first inning including a Home Run by Peter to score 6 in the top of the first. Chris was in the zone and didn't walk anybody until the last inning. Melody made a great throw to turn a double play and Beth made a great catch in right. Dirty Dora ended up bruised and covered in dirt. Sema got her first RBI of the season. The HoneyBadgers never stood a chance.

THE TEAM batted .525 with 2 Home Runs, 2 Doubles, 2 Triples, 4 Walks, and 3 strikeouts.

The Lou and Peter Award goes to Chris who had three sweet bloop shots from the leadoff spot and pitched a beauty.

The Dora Award goes to Beth who went 1 for 2 with an RBI and a great catch in the outfield.

The Sema Award goes to Michelle and the Randy Award goes to Me.

Isn't this fun?

The Burbank Chills

The Burbank Chills. What a horrible name for a softball team. At least they didn't have s**ty nicknames on the backs of their jerseys. Did they? They were a pretty inexperienced group and they are going to improve a lot as the season goes on. Not his week though.

THE TEAM batted .500 with 2 Home Runs, 2 Doubles, 2 Triples, 2 Strikeouts and 11 Walks. The Burbank Chills were held scoreless in 4 of the 6 innings and that's how THE TEAM won 15-7.

Lou and Peter hit home runs. Those guys are clearly A-League talent on a G League team. Let's name our award after them. The Lou and Peter Award goes to Randy going 2 for 2 with a walk and an RBI and ending the game with that sweet double play.

Should we award Melody a Dora Award? Dora always hustles and it seems to help THE TEAM get its motor going. Melody went 1 for 1 with an RBI and 2 walks. Let's give the Melody and Dora Award to Amy who made a great catch for a 3rd out in Right Field.

Is anyone else confused?

It was a great game by everyone

The Bombers

The Bombers were not a bad team. Some of them looked familiar and they could do some things. However, they could not do enough to stop THE TEAM. They were having some problems with their pitching so it never really got scary.

THE TEAM batted .643 with two Home Runs, a double, 12 walks and 3 strikouts. That's a lot of walks. It seems like walks cause errors so The Bombers had a large serving of those.

The Bombers scored 4 in the top of the first and THE TEAM took it right back with 5 runs in the bottom of the first that started with a 3 run homer by Peter. That was nice. THE TEAM gave up some more runs but led for the whole game. In top of the 6th THE TEAM held The Bombers to zero runs and the umpire told them they could get another at-bat if they got a quick 3 outs. Instead Lou hit a 2 run home run to put THE TEAM up 20-13 when blue called the game.

Sweet sweet victory.

After that it was drinkies after winnies. Happy 21st Birthday Amy. Lou, Beth, Doug, Melody, Michelle, and Amy all did a great job of drinking while The Packers croaked out of the playoffs. But who cares about that crew of millionaire strangers. THE TEAM won.
