The Playoffs

Look at this guy

That's Don Shipley.  He is a former Navy Seal with a YouTube Channel.  He spends his time exposing fake Navy Seals.  He will offer a profile of some karate instructor or security expert who claims to be a ex-Navy Seal.  He checks them against his data base and then gives them a jingle and exposes them for the frauds that they are.  It is an occasionally amusing and mostly upsetting offering.  He is a cranky old fart who could kill you with his bare hands.

On the subject of frauds

Where is the Don Shipley of Coed Softball to give Hot Sunday a big giant middle finger?

Look, there is no reason to swing at a bad pitch and give away an out but when the approach to to sit back on your heels and wait for the walk then you deserve the the big foam middle finger.

THE TEAM took only two walks.  THE TEAM had more strikeout (3) than walks.  THE TEAM was there to play, not watch.

That makes the victory just a little more tangy though.  They did a lot of standing around while Victor hit 2 Home Runs and drove in 6.  Lou hit a Home Run and drove in 3.  Daniyel went 2 for 3 with an RBI. 

You know who really gave them the big foam finger?  Dora, that's who.  Dora went 3 for 5  with 2 Doubles.  Dora made a great play on a foul ball.  Dora came up with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 7th and cleared the bases to tie the game.  After that she came in to score the winning run.

She will NOT be getting a call from Don Shipley.  Dora is the real deal.

Now it is time to win another Championship

Game 8 loss 2 Game 9 loss 3

THE TEAM got swept in a Doubleheader.  That's certainly never good but it was quite a display of grit and effort.  Natasha should have been home neck deep in soup and Nyquil but she was there punching and kicking for THE TEAM.

Jessica also needs to be acknowledged for coming to the rescue.  Tiger Blood tested her in Right Field more than once and found out that was a bad idea.

There was a great rally in the bottom of the 6th that came up one run short in the first game.

Victor and Dave both drove in 6 runs in the two games.

Yes usually getting swept in a Doubleheader means there was some kind of skunk shit defense or some bone headed base running or something else out of character.  Not this time.  It was some solid softball that just didn't quite get it done.  

So no beer, I guess

Game 7 - A Winning Season

That was win number six so regardless of how the next three games end, THE TEAM has its 16th winning season.

It seems like THE TEAM is really not into those close games.  THE TEAM either beats the crap out of someone or slouches into defeat while the game gets out of reach.  It's not true though.  This season there have been two 5 run wins and one 15 run loss so far but going back to last season there was a one run loss to Comic Relief and that tiebreaker with Pitches Be Crazy that seemed like the 1968 Chicago DNC.

Tight wins are usually not on the menu.

El Cid came down from E League and scored 26 runs in the first game of the second round so they were not farting around.  It was a back and forth slap fight but THE TEAM was getting what they needed from everybody to keep it close.

Jimmy went 4 for 4 with 2 RBIs.  Aerial went 3 for 3 with an RBI.

El Cid had the winning run at third and only one out when Lou and Kelly put together yet another double play to send it to the tiebreaker.

Peter ran all over the fucking place in the tiebreaker giving THE TEAM 4 bases.  El Cid had a leadoff double from some dude.  Then there was an out by some lady.  Their last batter rocketed one out to Center where Aerial made a clean catch for some sweet sweet victory.

El Cid is a good team.  They were crisp line drive hitters and looked very fluid in the field.  It would be a proud win against anybody but it gets even sweeter when THE TEAM plays up to the competition.
