Game 1 - Handing Somebody Their A**!

That was one sweet victory.  Before we get into all of that we should start by acknowledging the pre-season.  Even though THE TEAM went 0-2 there was the scent of promise in the dust of those unraked infields.  There was a double play by Melody and great catch by Kelly.  There was grand slam by Lou.  Right?  That was a grand slam wasn't it? 


Let's look at the Roster:

 3 Lou
 8 Jad
10 Melody
12 Natasha
15 Cheryl
18 Rick
19 Doug
21 Randy
24 Peter
25 Dora
27 Brandy
30 Kelly
38 Jeff

That looks unstoppable.

Holding any team to 2 runs is something to be proud of.  THE TEAM held The Flappers to 2 runs last season but The Flappers don't give a s**t.  The Cereal Hitters clearly gave a s**t.  They may have even given two.  (Only they know the truth)  They were built from the scrap heap of The Warriors and The Jensen Warriors.  It didn't really matter who they brought because THE TEAM was awesome.  The Cereal Hitters scored 1 in the top of the first and THE TEAM scored 6.  After that it was pretty much non-stop slaughter.  Delicious!

THE TEAM batted .625 with 1 Home Run, 1 Triple, 4 Doubles, 3 Walks and 2 Strikeouts.  The defense included an unassisted doubleplay by Randy.  The offense included a Home Run by Lou. 

Lou went 3 for 3 with 5 RBIs so he wins one of Cheryl's long lost earrings.

Jad went 3 for 3 with 3 RBIs so she get's another one of Cheryl's long lost earrings. 

Don't worry.  There are plenty of earrings for everybody

If we play 75% of what we did last night, we can take this whole thing. However, I will have to insist on 100%. Don't forget Natasha pitched a gem and between us we raised $13,000 for charity with 6 strikeouts and one foulout. And I stand by my statement in that we played error-free ball. (Peter is hard on himself with a bobble grounder, but I don't count that as an error, it was just a hard hit ball and he still gloved it and the girl was fast.)

We hit in the gap, we ran hard, we ran smart bases....All but one time when we score 16 or more we always win.
