To the Front Office of Purplesaurus Rex:

No thanks are necessary regarding the gift of your newest 1st baselady. I’m sure the Dolphins, Redskins, and a few other NFL teams will be sending similar thank you cards and fruit baskets to Jim Irsay when he finally (mercifully) cuts Peyton Manning loose onto the free agent market. As thanks for “not keeping his house in order”, if you will. But we know what he knows. A season ending injury can turn a once great player into a shell of their former self. She may never regain her previous form (love ya Gilson :) And like the Colts, we also know you don’t achieve 9 straight double win seasons without making smart, shrewd roster moves. We made ours, and for that, you are welcome. We also picked up our own “Luck” or two. Besides, she never played 1st for us, but we hear she is AMAZING in the outfield.

As for the game itself. We did a little scouting last week (what, you thought our captain randomly chooses what games to ref just for fun?), and there is clearly talent on the field. Bravo on the recruiting, wow. The new girl from Cali with Founder’s Cup experience? The catcher who was so quick he twice ran out of his cleats? But an MLS caliber player...WTF?!? And don’t even get us started on that giant DBag that pervs around with the other purple team in Capital...wait, our captain creeps around with those weirdos in the van too, nvm. But anyway, we expect a great game. New talent will only take you so far though. Lack of experience and that roster of seemingly 40 payers will bring you down against one of the most experienced teams in Live. ENJOY OPENING THE BOX, YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

-Love, KickInABox
