Kick in a Box
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!? IS THIS NOT WHY YOU ARE HERE?!? (cue the Gladiator music) http://youtu.be/FsqJFIJ5lLs We didn’t want to do it, but you didn’t leave us much choice. 21-0 may have been a bit excessive, and in all honesty, the game got out of hand so quickly that we didn’t have time to realize it, so our apologies do go out to the opposing team. No harm meant, we really are supporters of Plan B (pun intended). That said, the real blame should fall on Mr./Ms. Power Poll Master. You expressed your disappointment in us, you threatened our weekly poll position, and you had to go out and get our captain all riled up. He may or may not have borrowed one of Jay’s motivational videos, called a practice during the bye week, possbily even had the team running wind sprints, but at least it finally got us to flex some muscle. Shit, you even got us to submit a GMOT entry for the first time in...ever?
Our schedule has been a little tricky so far, easily the toughest Live schedule outside of the Walks 4 Weeks From Hell (man, they did y’all dirty, did you guys switch leagues and piss some people off or something?) But we make NO EXCUSES (Hi Dre :) 2 losses though, by a total of 3 runs, to 2 teams from the top half of the Capital table, is nothing to be ashamed of. And don’t forget the other Capital team we did knock off. 2 words for you: battle-tested. We’ve been around long enough to know that a pretty little 8-0 or 7-1 regular season record doesn’t win you shit. We’ve got our sights set on one thing, and one thing only: playoffs. PLAYOFFS?!? http://youtu.be/p3-eavMSBnk Yes, playoffs. Now we know Hannah is legit, and Where My Pitches At? and Red Rockets have been looking good. We know the Walks are still the top dogs...for now. But KickInABox as the 8th best team in Live??? Said in a voice just like everyone’s favorite foul ball dropping first baseman, “C’MON SON!!!”
