Better Red than Blue Balls
Well, that was fast. Only three weeks into our first-ever season, and with our first GMOT submission, we managed to get the word "rape" and all references to the act banned from the Austin WAKA blog. Talk about making waves. Nice, consensual waves. Definitely no funny business. Possibly our greatest accomplishment thus far, however, is becoming rivals to the self-admitted villains of the league, Relax and Let it Happen. If Relax are the villains of the league, that must make us… The Batman. And as long as we don’t leave any Ambien lying around, it should hopefully make a very lively rivalry. (Too soon?) But only on the field, at Third Base, we'll be the Gyllenhaal to their Ledger. And while we may be rocking a goose egg in the wins column, it hasn’t been for lack of effort… or defense. Offense? Yeah, not so good. One run in the last game (in an 8-person overtime, no-less) and multiple stranded runners left on base? We might have a scoring problem. Hopefully we’ll be able to take some of our frustration out on the not-even-mentioned-in-the-power-polls Sons of Pitches this week. If not, we might have to change up our current, grueling, routine of chugging beers and taking Jell-O shots.
