What makes a kickball league successful? Is it the star players, like myself? Is it the money that gets pumped into it season after season? Is it the opportunity to watch people who have no business playing any kind of sport embarrass themselves? One could argue for all of those factors and more. The truth is that a good ol' fashioned rivalry is what makes a kickball league, and any league for that matter, successful.
The Teabaggers aka the Buffalo Bills of WAKA, are our rival. They're the right mix of talent, effort, and experience to continue to get thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to beating us. Last thursday, the Teabaggers played a great game, and we played a not so great game. What happened was a 4-4 tie that went to extra innings.
You might've noticed the speed of both teams. You might've noticed the competitive nature that each team had. But did you notice the stands?! We have legitimate stands now, and they were packed. Relax should get 30% of the proceeds that WAKA gets. Teams have been and continue to be made to bring us down. It won't happen, but in the process more money will pour into the WAKA pockets.
To Waka, you're welcome.
To Teabaggers, you should've done better.
To everyone else, Relax and Let it Happen.
