Elite 8- Preview

Thu, Sep 12, 2013

The pressure is on in Time Out’s Magazine’s premiere softball league for people that find themselves way too overpowered by fastballs to play real baseball, and occasionally enjoy a few rounds of drinks after a swell game. Hey, let’s go out there and show them just how convivial we are! You won’t want to miss any of the action this weekend, on and off the field.

Get ready for some cheers, jeers, beers, and tears.

It’s the FINAL EIGHT!

12PM

Field #1: duckduck vs. Pete’s (Shortz)

A tender moment…or a slap. Only time will tell.

Looking like we were in mid-2010-season form last week, duckduck has arrived at the elite 8 to face off against the fiery Candyfolk.

Still licking their wounds from their interleague loss to the ducks, Coach Sam will unleash the remaining members of the Trifecta Of Awesome, JJ and Jake, who’ve now changed their name to Double Trouble. However, Duckduck’s playoff eve booze-fest worked in our favor last week, so they may be no match if we 2-peat our pre-game ritual of “making it Suntory time”.

Without the aide of my muse-turned-enemy Sam, I will try my hand at a game prediction.

“The game will go off without a hitch, until a stray horse parks itself in RC and refuses to move. Both teams are forced to bench an outfielder, and instead use the horse as their 10th fielder. It will be a little work getting a glove onto his hoof, but soon the game will resume. The horse, now affectionately named Ain’t Misbehavin’ on account of the irony that he was in fact misbehaving, seemed to be playing far better for Pete’s (4 catches) than for duckduck (0 catches, and bucking the ball into the other field). Two innings later, it was discovered by avid horse-whisperer Mike Hogan, as he came over to give Ain’t Misbehavin a pep-talk, that the horse was actually Kirby in a horse costume.  There’s never be a precedent for horse trickery as a means to get the other team to play with less players, but Commish Holland made the call to disqualify Pete’s from the playoffs and fine Coach Sam 300 hours of McCarren field maintenance.”

Le Fin.

Field #2: AT vs. Black Betty (GBlack)

It was bound to happen once I left my Black Betty family 3 seasons ago for AT’s greener pastures, after playing with them for nearly 10 years. (Yes, I am that old) With the help of Co-manager Justin ‘The Stick’ Moench, OG Vinny and a tight knit core of drunks, drug users( not abusers), one simpleton, and some really good softball players, The Allstars are at the pinnacle of their rebuilding process. Black Betty stopped the streaking undefeated AT’ers in Inter-League Week 3. That game started a 3 game losing skid for the Green and Yellow, and a few visits to the reality doctor while The Betty went on to win the next four out of five. Both teams finished the season with a loss, but that did not affect them in the 1st round of the playoffs. Has there been any shit talking between the two sides leading up to their much anticipated Quarter Final contest?  Happy you asked, because the answer is HELL YES. A trash talkin’, and at some points lewd texting battle has been going for 4 days between yours truly and WSL Legend-In-His-Own-Head James JB$ Byrne.

Here are a few exerts, keep your children away from the screen please.

Fun words between to old friends. Who will charge their way to the final 4? It will be a great one to start the day off.

2PM

Field #1: 3Kings vs. Spike Hill (Shortz)

Since these teams have yet to play each other this season due to 3 Kings’ transfer to the South, I have no updated stats to determine who’s the favorite to win.  And as you all know by now, when I don’t have content, I make shit up. Please enjoy this preview in the tune of When Johnny Comes Marching Home.

O’Malley’s sending his troops to war

Hurrah! Hurrah!

No Mistakes or they’ll miss final 4

Hurrah! Hurrah!
Golden Boy Powell’s impossible to stop,

The boys hope Mo will sport her bikini top,

And they’ll smash a MILLION homeruns when Spike Hill tries to win on Sunday.

Spike Hill swept 3 Kings both games last year,

Hurrah! Hurrah!

But Stash is in charge and now his team’s feared,

Hurrah! Hurrah!

Martinez, Franzese, and Santoro always go yard,

Romano is clutch with the ball she throws hard,

And the Boombox will play as 3 Kings tries to win on Sunday.

Field #2: RBar vs. Good Co. (GBlack)

I have two words for Good Co: Andy ‘Fucking” Mac!…. Okay three words, but I strongly suggest flying in their former Pink teammate. Why? Well, Rbar has only lost three times this year. Good Co. was responsible for one of them and Mr. Mac was present giving a motivational speech for the ages. (see http://williamsburgsoftball.com/2013/05/week-4-recap-3/)

That Week 4 game featured an Rbar defense that was still trying to get into WSL shape vs. a jelling Good Co. team looking to start the season 3-0. New Bumette Natalie “hear me roar” Chaquinga was robbed of her first WSL home run by those pesky fences, (remember those?) and GC won a tight one, 7-5. Rbar eventually found their legs and were aiming for the division lead when they faced Pink’s manager and 2nd best looking man in the league, Walter Pluff in Week 19. That classic back and forth battle had Mike “The Lines Man” V hitting a clutch homer but D-Lo responding by smashing a home run of her own and leading the Bums’ comeback 13-11 victory. So here we are, one win away from the semi-finals and two away from a championship with these two closely matched teams meeting again. Who will win the rubber game, Pink or Blue? Can Capt. Calves stop staring in the mirror for five seconds and pitch the game of his self-important life? It’s the #2 seed vs. the #7, but it certainly feels closer than that. Cannot wait to see what happens.

See you out there,

Toodles!
