The kickball gods are an odd bunch. We were probably at our lowest point as a team during this 3 game losing streak, and honestly the season was in danger of completely flying off of the rails. Then we decided to play our best game in ages and beat Relax 2-0 last week. Awesome. This is only our 2nd time beating them, but we've been so close several times that it felt great to finally put together a complete game and bring home the victory. I could be wrong, but I don't know if Relax has ever been shut out before, or at least not in years. I'm going to assume Relax is mature enough to accept that they were outplayed and not bitch about anything. They were missing a couple of their fast guys, but so were we. There weren't any really terrible calls either. Even if Derek is called out in the last inning we still win 1-0. Relax had lots of base runners, but either they couldn't get a kick when they needed it or we made a defensive play just when we needed it. Everybody played well and had a hand in the win, but special kudos to Joyce for her clutch over the shoulder catch in the last inning to preserve the win.
This week we play The Tyrannical Dunderbaggers in the first and probably only Tyrannical Bag-off. Should be a grand ol' time. Sorry for not being funny this week. We'll do better next week.
