Week 16- Preview

Thu, Jul 18, 2013

Week 16 is upon us and we have more double headers! We all love to play more than one game, but two 9 inning games in +90 degree heat? Since we are all highly skilled professional softball players, we will just be sure to keep hydrated (with booze) and wear plenty of sunscreen.

Will the BK Bowlers continue their steady climb in the North with a victory vs. Spike Hill? Can the Turkey’s Nest avoid being the first Gibson victim? And how does Breezy stay cool in this heat with all the facial hair? We know nothing.. but he did pen these awesome previews for your infinite pleasure.

10AM

Field #1: Clemerica vs. Gibson (Shortz)

Beer: The only acceptable way to start your Sunday morning

When they met in week 13, Clemerica came out on top by a measly 18 runs. But, the Gibson had an impressive offense last weekend and will be looking for some payback. As for the Battleship, this marks their first of two attempts this Sunday to get back over .500 and possibly knock duckduck out of 4th place in the North (you must win… both games…and have duckduck blow it with AT…but I digress). No matter the outcome in runs, both teams will definitely be equally matched in terms of “beer score”. There’ll be no diet cokes on this field.

 

Field #2: duckduck vs. AT AllStars (GBlack)

What’s next?

These two teams met in Week 7’s MudBowl, and the Allstars edged out a close win, 9-8. The Webbed Ones can definitely score runs (160 so far this season), their problem is they allow their opponents score almost just as much (158). Assuming the key to their success is finding an even more horrific storm to play through , dd’s standout and resident mad scientist, PeteMo has been hatching an evil plan, working tirelessly to perfect what he calls a DUCKNADO!! (althought from the looks of the forecast may touch ground a day too early) AT righted their ship and stopped a three game losing streak last week vs. Second Chance. But their offense still needs to wake up some, as they have not scored more than 10 runs since Interleague week #1. Will Ersin the Turkish Nightmare hit like he is playing for his Saturday League and wake up the AT offense? How do they keep speedster Lauck off the bases? Will Gerald take Shortz out trying to break up a double play? (Fuck yes I will!!!) “Will Shortz retaliate by kicking Gerald in the balls (Heck yes I will!!!) Wash that eye crust off, get some caffeine and come on down early to see which player will pass out first from a heat stroke this week.

12PM

Field #1: Gibson vs. Turkey’s Nest (GBlack)

We deal with this for the love of the Big Bud!

The battle of Bedford Avenue (between N 11 St and N 12 St.) is ON!!!! Having been washed out back in Week 7, these two bars do battle for the first time this season. The Nester’s continue to underachieve this year, despite having a very solid and veteran line up. They face the winless Gibson, who will be playing their second game of a very hot day. To make sure they have lasting power to play in the brutal sun, (and because  there is luckily no drug testing in the WSL or we’d have a full league suspension) they have combined their sunscreen with a testosterone booster cream. Will that be enough for the Gibson to take advantage of a Turkey team that just can’t seem to get it together? With a record of 5-7, perhaps it’s time that Turkey’s Nest bar enacts the same policy as the Gibson obviously does upon their sponsored teams: When you lose, you clean the bathrooms. With the way things look in there, you would think the Turkey’s have been undefeated for at least a few seasons.

Field #2: 2nd Chance vs. Clemerica (Shortz)  

Despite a missed opportunity to face off in week 7, when the shittiest of shitty weather cancelled over half the games, these teams will finally dance this Sunday. The Battleship will already have one game under their pirate belts and maybe some Gibson ears around their necks. But if their beers fatigues instead of fuels them, it could give the 86er’s the edge they so desperately need. They are hurtin’ for a win, as it’s been over a month since they last tasted sweet victory. Mayor Buttah, I found this video for your team to check out before the game, just as a reminder that even when all is looking bleak, you can still obtain glory.

2PM

Field #1: Soft Spot vs. RBar (GBlack)

Yetis look to smoke Rbar on Sunday!

Rbar, who owns the second best record in the league, looks to forget about their tough loss vs. The Candy Store last week and redeem themselves against an old rival. To acclimate the Bum’s to the stifling heat, Rbar owner and president, Greg Abelians has been holding daily team meetings at the bar with no AC.  True story, he has a mini fan from the 99 cent store cooling the entire joint. Soft Spot has been getting stronger as the season progresses. Having gone 3-1 vs. the North, the Yetis would love to bring that type of consistent play back against their own division.

The South is the tougher division and is still up for grabs. Can the Yetis stomp Rbar down a peg? Who will dominate the mound, Pizza or Teddy? I predict a low scoring game. Be the 1st to guess the correct combined score and I will buy you two ice cold Big Buds from the Nest!

Field #2: Pete’s vs. 3 Kings (Shortz)

OK Seriously, don’t pretend you didn’t watch it…and liked it

MUDBALL rematch! Things got real wet and wild in this week 7 game, when both teams opted to brave the mc’nasty conditions and play ball! In their high-scoring game, (because holding onto the ball was harder that a game of Greased Watermelon) Pete’s was able to pull ahead to win it by one.

I don’t see the weather playing a major role this Sunday, as it looks to be mild (with possible chance of Sharknado). But with these two fired up clubs, this game has the makings to be just as entertaining sans mud. Will Stash’s royal defense be able to withstand Pete’s “Trifecta of Awesome” (see Week 9 Recap for member details), or will the Candyfolk be too distracted by the ice cream truck to keep their heads in the game? Stay tuned…

4PM

Field #1: Turkey’s Teachers vs. Good Co. (GBlack)

This Nest team has been even worse than the other Nest team. The Teachers have totally regressed  from last season. They have gone from advanced calculus to having to use their toes to count past 3. Is there a special special Ed? Thankfully, everyone makes the playoffs and it’s not too late for Haz to turn the faculty around and make a move to the middle of the bunch. This is the first of two games for Good Co, who are riding a two game winning streak vs. two quality opponents (Black Betty & 3 Kings). Sporting the 2nd best defense in the league, the Pinks look to bully and add to the misery for The Teachers this season.

Field #2: Black Betty vs. Loggers (Shortz)

Sprinkles are good for the pores

When last these to squads met, their game was quoted as playing in the “Mist Room of the WSL Spa & Recess Center“. In the wake of the sauna-like weather lately, that sounds like heaven. With Mother Nature (hopefully) on our side this weekend, we’ll see if this game will have a score closer than 18 runs. That’s my hope for the Loggers. As for the Black, we’ll see just how creative they get with their base coaching this time around.

 6PM

Field #1: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Spike Hill (Shortz)

This is how Leo hits Home Runs

These two teams were also unable to meet in week 7 so we only have a fictional final score 3-2 Spike Hill, predicted by “Blue’s Clues” Sam as he guzzled down a “bevy” and tossed his glass to the ground. However, each team only has 3 losses all season going into week 16, so this looks to be an evenly matched event. Godsy and the rest of the Bowler outfield will have to “back dat ass up” for current HR leader Phil Michael, Mid-season addition Doug, and Alex, and Bobby, and Kelly and Leo…Oh who am I kidding. Spike Hill will just be conducting their own personal homerun derby, oblivious that there’s even a game going on.

Field #2: Black Betty vs. Good Company (GBlack)

Softball? What’s a softball? Can you make it…out of sand?

Both teams will have already played one game in the 4 pm time slot, so they should be all warmed up and ready to go. Capt Calves completely baffled the Black back in June. When reached for comment on the rematch, The Captain said, “I am gonna do it again! Shut them Champ Chumps down! ‘Cause that is how a 5’-5″ Peruvian from the Midwest with calves the size of watermelons rolls!”  The Betty have been looking up and are now poised to make a run at the division lead. Big Benny White has settled in nicely as the new manager, guiding his team to an 8-4 record. With perennial Allstars Holland and Camarra playing, BB will always be a tough contender. And where the hell is Jesse Ballgame??? Word has it he has built a two floor liveable sand castle on the beach at Coney Island and now operates The Cyclone.

 

 

Until next time…

Toodles!
