RELAX and Let it Happen
Relax and Let it Happen
Last season recap: Total Domination. We proved that us not winning the season before was a complete fluke. We rampaged through the season and post season and then kind of had a cake walk in the final against the Teabaggers. They're a fun group, but not on our level.
What's scary about the total domination thing is that believe it or not, we've managed to improve our team. We added two girls who are better than most team's guys. It's kind of ridiculous to improve upon something that's already so lethal...
It's like cloning Dirk 4 times and playing an all Dirk starting 5.
It's like if bears could fly.
It's like if Stevie Wonder could see.
It's like if Michael Phelps had gills.
Last Thursday we played Suck My Kick and we demolished them with our new squad. Our girls played beautifully, defense was stellar, and Jay almost made a poor guy fall on one of his pitches. We beat them 12-0 and they're one of the better teams. It should've been 22 but we wanted to watch the game at 3rd base.
Speaking of bases, pro tip for you ladies out there: IF YOUR COACH TELLS YOU THAT YOU'RE PLAYING SECOND OR THIRD, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STAND ON THE BASE AND NEVER MOVE LIKE YOU'RE GLUED TO IT. ESPECIALLY WHEN PEOPLE ARE RUNNING AROUND THE BASES.
I swear to God I felt a girl's foot break under the weight of my machine-like legs as I made my way around the bases. So please, protect your feet and step off the bag is when no one is coming. It'll save your feet.
Next week we play...it doesn't matter and we'll beat em' by a bunch. Until then, Relax and Let it Happen...
