Week 10 – PREVIEW

Thu, Jun 19, 2014

“Greetings and salutations” are in order to our guest writer, who wasted no time in contacting us after reading that we were down a man. Because of her stuckup job that doesn’t allow personal blogging, she’d prefer to be referred to as WSL SUPER FAN, but she is connected with the league so she has all the dirt on you people.

Let’s give her a warm welcome!


Field #1: Clemerica vs. Loggers (Stryker)

Welllll…besides the Gibson, these two teams have had quite a difficult time this year trying to get that elusive W.  With the two second worst records in the league, it’s been a real battle for the basement. That will have to change this week as one of us has to win…i think. Can there be a tie?  Is there a time limit on these games?  Anyway, in honor of the fight between these two cellar dwellers, I bring to you …. The Basement Boys.

Field #2: Gibson vs. Turkey’s Teachers (Stache)

I have now been assigned the task of writing up the Gibson’s game for the 4th week in a row.  Yes, I know I have made you fully aware of the Gibbys somewhat futile search for that exceedingly-elusive victory.  A few weeks back, they faced another team that was riding a long losing streak in the Loggers.  That game didn’t turn out so well, but they get another shot at redemption on Sunday against a floundering Turkey’s Teachers squad.

The Teachers have lost 7 in a row and 8 of 9 this season, including an unfortunate forfeit to Reel2Reel in week 5.  The improvements have yet to show up in the box score, but TNT manager Haz seems to have secured a somewhat steady group of players in recent weeks. Will this new and improved squad have what it takes to hold down a hungry Gibson team?  Which one of these Bedford Avenue neighbors will be getting day drunk after this early match-up?  Well, I suppose they both will…but one will probably be drowning their sorrows.


Field #1: Black Betty vs. Reel 2 Reel (Shortz)

This 1pm game features two sleeping giants with more history than Israel and Palestine, Itchy and Scratchy and Cowboys and Indians Washington Native Americans and the Dallas Horse Engineers combined.

For those at home keeping score, Reel2Reel refers to this game as the rematch for last time…and that other time…and that other time. Yes, Black Betty always seem to have our number but this time I swear, nay I oath it – we will score more than one run this time.

And the Bettys will be without Green Light Belz so it’s going to be pretty hard for y’all to rack up all those runs on us.

No matter the outcome, I implore you all to chew on this (no, it’s not tobacco).

Whilst many teams are high fiving their current standings, these veteran clubs know better than to peak in June. Come talk to us in September.

Field #2: Good Company vs. Spike Hill (WSL SUPER FAN)

Not even the sunglasses can hide the twinkle in his eye

Pink versus Black.  Well, not the original Black (Betty) but Spike Hill, the Black Betty clone.

But is Pink the new, new Black?

Good Company is coming off a short-handed loss against an always strong R-Bar team, and Spike Hill beat Soft Spot with about 100 home runs. The game was a bit too early for me, but based on Erik’s photos, I’d say our favorite nice guy to hate, O’Malley, forced another four base error in the field.

Speaking of errors, every time I see the Pink jerseys running around, I’m always thinking about breast cancer, and that just gets me to fall harder for the Grey Fox, Walter Pluff.  Damn you, cute girlfriend that plays on the team!

Is it just me, or is Good Company more like one big group date? Wally and Stacy, Mike and Jen, Sam and Sam, all those new guys who look like they played professionally and their buddies. On the other hand, Spike Hill is a bunch of strangers who clearly are all business (just kidding, benevolent Bud Light buyer).  Good Company has restocked and while they have been inconsistent this year, this is the game to watch on Sunday for us fans.  Personally, I’m rooting for the Grey Fox… to catch my eye, that is.*wink*


Field #1: Soft Spot vs. Crown Victoria 86-ers (Shortz)

omg. I totally had the same outfit…in ’86.

When I asked each club what their read was on their upcoming opponents, all I got was, “We love the 86ers!” and “Those Yetis are the coolest.”

This love fest betwixt teams rang a little odd, so I did some digging a came upon this news-ical ditty.

Apparently, during a certain year there were rampant sightings of our favorite WSL team mascot all over the world.  In what year do you ask? ’86.

No I’m not making this up! You can read about it here and here.

The reports indicate the being in question as, “lumbering and kind of hunched over”. That’s totally a Yeti (or at least one after hours spent at The Gibson).

That’s super odd, right? ’86 being the year of the Yeti? Are these two teams aware of this fact, and launching some kind cover-up? And why?

All will be explained this Sunday afternoon.

Field #2: Pete’s Candy Store vs. RBar (Stryker)

A strange thing happened last weekend. My parents came in for lunch on Saturday.  My wonderful Mother brought me in one of her delicious baked goods. That delicious loaf was chocolate banana bread.  Later, on Sunday, I found out that Sam too had made chocolate banana bread.  This raises many questions…

Was it mere coincidence? 

Are Sam and my mom in “cahoots”?

Is Sam really my Mom?

I am hiring a personal investigator to get to the bottom of this.  Anyway, on to the game.

Pete’s is coming of a sweet candy coated victory, while the bums are coming off a bitter, rainy night, alongside-the-tracks win.  The Candy Striper’s D will have to remain as solid as it has all season (well almost all season) if they have any hopes of stopping the offensive (both meanings of the word) onslaught that only a gathering of 12 Bums in one place can produce.  This should either be a blow out, or a really close one, or one team will win by only a couple.  I just hope that couple isn’t Sam and my dear sweet Mother.


Field #1: Turkey’s Nest vs. 3 Kings (Stache)

Pretty sure I win anyway

Although I have yet to set foot on the plane, this WSL writer is sad to report that he will be recapping this game from Houston, TX next week…having not actually played in it.  In my stead, 3K’s resident goofball Nick Tomeo will be leading my merry band of misfits into battle with the 8-1 Turkey’s Nest juggernaut.  Not only will Voltron be missing it’s head, but the Kings are also without Billy “Frank Dux” Gruarin, who went off to fight in the Kumite for the next few months…or something.

The Nest will apparently be without some regulars this week, too.  They did not say who would be missing, but this reporter really hopes that it’s Dan Shafer.  I really don’t like the idea of him strutting that formidable mustache around the field while I am not there to provide some ample, retaliatory ‘stache presence.

Certainly some of the gaudy, early-season scores have come back down to earth in recent weeks, but you should still expect to see some fireworks between these 2 offensive powerhouses.  Just because they aren’t reporting their home runs to the league, doesn’t mean the Nest aren’t hitting them!  Looking forward to tales of a great game and I’m really hoping the Kings don’t have to see “The Human Victory Cigar” John Louis on the mound in the 7th inning.

Field #2: Brooklyn Bowl vs. AT United (WSL SUPER FAN)

Last time these two met, times were happier.  The teams gathered together around a beautiful shiny green object, worshiping its contents like a bunch of guys checking out the drunk sloppy girl on spring break who is about to pop out of her top.  That was NOT me, I swear. What I’m saying here is that I miss the drunk tank and the day it comes back I will wear a bikini and drink 10 (free) beers and dance like Burning Man relocated to McCarren Park.  I may also vomit, but only to wake up a bit, just like AT has since vanquishing the green idol and recommitting to a “Play First/Drink Later/Drink Some More/Anyone Want To Smoke?/Hey Girl, Did You Know I Own A Vespa?” philosophy.  How’s that for a segue?  Wait… here’s another….

Brooklyn Bowl, on the other hand, is playing some tight defense… real stingy, like Joe Godsy at a bar (true story) or Jay Silver at a bar (false, he has 10 kids now) or Pete Hoffman on the mound (Ask Again Later).  With Pete throwing some nasty junk, the Bowl has given up less than 10 runs in 6 of their 8 games. But once AT gets rolling, they can hit for miles. And Daniel is back! Great all-around player and wears no shirt (no shirt, no problem).  I’m in (the stands)… you should be too!
