Relax and Let it Happen
Last week we played "It's Not Going To Kick Itself" and sadly we took their advice and kicked the shit out of them. We didn't play our best game, but we handled them pretty easily with a 10-0 win. It was a pretty boring and ridiculously easy game. It was equivalent to walking an overweight dog. We didn't have to break a sweat. It was fun. Got to think about what we were going to order at the bar later. And we got a few chuckles along the way.
In all seriousness though, it's getting sad how we have to carry the league. I wrote it last week and I will write it again, we need a worthy arch nemesis, and quick. We need competition. It's a lot of pressure being the main attraction week in and week out in Austin and in Texas for that matter. The fans want to see a good game, so pick it up league! We're doing what we can for the league. Things like teaching people how to bunt and play defense, teaching people how to play bar games, and teaching people what it's like to play against and later talk to a black person.
What I'm trying to say is...don't take us for granted, because, like all good things, one day we'll be gone. And when that happens (2025) we want the league to survive and prosper without us. And even though it may be stupid, I believe in you, because even though you're not as attractive, smart, witty, or athletic as us, you can always try harder. Sadly, we can't teach you effort, and that's where you're lacking. Pick it up league! Make us proud!
