PurpleSaurus Rex!

Once again, PurpleSaurus is faced with their most unspeakable foe: the 6:30 start time. The last time this happened we had a team to field, but certainly not all 22 of our glorious teammates were on hand, leading those of us on the field to ball our two fingers into a taloned fist and share our tiny tiny arms at the heavens, cursing our lot in life. Today? We shall not be stymied by scheduling, we will not go quietly into the night, we will not vanish without a fight, WE'RE GOING TO LIVE ON! WE'RE GOING TO SURVIVE!

Bill Pullman is the tits. Quick aside, look at these corgis riding a PurpleSaurus Rex. I can't even handle this shit it's so awesome.

There's never been a picture more Stephen.

Anyway, we tied our ...Saurus Rex brothers last week by effectively managing our 'kick away always' strategy right into center fielder Matt Saal's hands on roughly 2/3 of our at-bats. Ain't no thang, and I would like to point out that for the purposes of win percentage two ties DOES INDEED count as a win, meaning we are NO LONGER WINLESS! RAWR!

This week we face off against Suck My Kick. I have a special place in my heart for these guys because we all like to scream at the television when the Spurs are playing, but I have a strong suspicion that they just aren't going to get what our team is all about. It's going to be kind of like when you're playing Mario Kart with your 6 year old cousin and get all excited about setting a new lap record, and then you look over and realize that she's trying to throw bananas to the monkeys in the trees on the side of the course because "they look hungry" and has actually managed to go backwards a half a lap.

Just remember the golden rule tonight: the game isn't over when we finish playing, the game is over when we finish the punch! Tight & Bright is playing against Raging Dinos immediately after our game, so I think it's highly likely well be partying at Gillis well beyond the 7:15  PM mark. If you're confused when you come by, the GOOD punch is the stuff in the blue cooler, the shitty punch that T&B is peddling is in the gatorade one. See you on the field!
