PurpleSaurus Rex

My assessment of how PurpleSaurus vs Suck My Kick was going to go down was SPOT ON last week, as they racked up 10 runs to our none on systematic and effective kicking and baserunning coupled with solid defensive play, all while completely failing to figure out what the f**k we were smiling about on the sidelines. I think my favorite moment of the game was when newbie Ivan bunted (he's new, doesn't know how things work around here) and was roundly booed by the rest of the team, and SMK's pitcher just couldn't wrap his head around it. "Why are you boing!? He's one of only 3 people to get on base the whole game!" As usual, PurpleSaurus dominated two important statistics: highest kick (I kicked it SO HIGH that time!) and physical attractiveness.

The early start turned into a full on Purple mess as our 6:30 game ended and we focused in on the next goal: finishing the punch. After seeing the aftermath I can't say that I recommend playing flip cup with highly potent Kool Aid, but I can't say I regret a moment of it. Purple was everywhere in the bar, Fireball and tequila were flowing, bad decisions were made, and as usual very little photo evidence exists of the shenanigans.

This week, we celebrate the dawn of a new age: the late game! Our first four games were all in the 6:30 or 7:15 slot, which means for the remainder of the season we're playing nothing but 8:00 and 8:45 games! This means elusive creatures like Sandy Panties and Erica "Going to Bite You" Diaz may actually make it for the first pitch. There have been whispers of a man shrouded in mystery, wrapped in enigma, going by the unassuming moniker of Franklin Pan. The last confirmed Franklin sighting was in  May of 2012, but rumors are circulating that a Gillis appearance could be imminent.

We're playing one of this season's brand new teams this week, albiet one of the good ones, and it's time to find out if this team is capable of actually winning a game. My predicition? MAYBE. Field #2 at 8 PM if you want some punch, our cooler is always open.
