My Team = Dog Sh...

Brief detour from normal stuff to rant about my softball team. Last night, we had our playoffs scheduled for softball. We played at 6:00 and if we won, we would play again at 8. Well sure enough, game time comes and we're missing 4 players from our team (yes that's right - 4!). So we're sitting there ready to get up to bat (we're visitors) and we only have 7 guys. The rule is you can play the game until the end of the 2nd inning, and then you have to have at least 8 guys to continue.

We get up and end up batting around twice and go up 9 - 0, with our 7 guys. Of course, when we go out in the field, we're pretty much F'd because you have some big old holes in the field with only 7. Still, we "only" gave up 11 runs and the score is 11-9 after 1. No sign of anyone else. We get up again and this time only score 2 to tie. They get up one more time and finish us off 14-11 and the game ends due to not enough players. It was the funnest 2-inning game I've ever played. Super pissed at the no-shows.

If you're gonna be on the team, how about showing up once in awhile? Especially the playoffs! Damn!

Of course, we still had to have our post-game beers. Although, who in the hell brought the MGD 64's? That stuff is horse pee. At least give us the Belgian stuff (i.e. Bud).

Ok. I'm good. Next season starts Monday (minus a few people)...

That's just wrong! Who stiffs their own team? Suckers!

Dang that stinks.

But hey it's all about the beer, right? LOL

Better question: Who brings MGD 64s??

I think that's the only question. That is just an awful, awful beer. Tonight, we start playing in Manteca and they allow pitchers of beer right outside the dugout. Good beer too - Sierra Nevada! God bless America.

God Bless states that have better beer! Ah yes add insult to injury, shitty ass beer. Although I've found that I can appreciate Budweiser and Pabst Blue Ribbon. Ah yeah PBR, so terrible it's good, gives a hangover like cheap vodka.
