Game 1 - Everybody + D League

The first order of business is the Fall 2016 Roster.  Let's get that read into the record.

3   Lou
5   Kelly
6   Rick
7   Natasha
8   Aerial
12 Daniyel
22 Dave
23 Melody
24 Peter
25 Dora
27 Victor
30 Lauren
33 Jimmy

That is a deadly group of athletes.

D League has been about as much fun as trying to figure out how many hours John Hinckley must have masturbated to Jodie Foster before taking a shot a Reagan started to make sense.  THE TEAM had gone 1-9 and that one win was a forfeit.

No fun

THE TEAM was below average on offense hitting .520 and scoring 10 runs.  (THE TEAM average in the modern era is .578 and 13.5 runs).  There was only 1 strikeout so that's good.  Victor had 2 Triples and 3 RBIs so that's good too.

One of the things that seems to be part of playing in D League is that the errors are expensive.  Those extra base runners always come in to score.  

THE TEAM defense was great so nothing was given away and offense made sure The Madbatters paid for their errors.  It's nice to be on the other side of that.

THE TEAM was chasing one with time running out when Melody drove in the tying run and Lauren drove in the winning run.

THE TEAM finally won a D League game.

Yes fun

It was a great start to the hunt for a 4th championship

After losing our last five games, winning a practice game that didn't matter, then tying a game that didn't matter, how great is it, that with the return of Papa Smurf and Natasha and our new recruit, Lauren, that we win in a league we never won in before AND the game winner was by Lauren? Without hyperbole, that is exactly on par with the Cavs winning it all last season. Maybe better. And no errors as far as I know! And we won without any home runs, which is tough to do in this league. If we finish 3-2 in D League, I'd have a boner, or at least a semi-chub.
