And now…it’s preview time.

11am

Field #1: Turkey’s Nest vs. Turkey’s Teachers (WSL SUPERFAN)

The Majestic Bourbon Turkey

It’s a little known fact, but outside of certain circles like the WSL and livestock enthusiasts, that there are actually multiple breeds of turkeys.  I didn’t know this until I searched on the Google and there it was- the perfect breed to reflect these two teams sponsored by our favorite bathroom without purchase…er, I mean bar, The Nest!  The Bourbon Turkey, which appropriately comes in both Blue and Orangish/Red variations, has a chin looking vaguely like something anatomical that I just can’t place, which also fits a league that has only two girls on the field at a time.

This year, it’s been all blue – the Original Turkey’s has only lost once (to Good Company) and has be on a roll all season, most recently outlasting 3 Kings in a tight 17-15 battle.  Jordan’s boys are looking like a title contender. Teachers, on the other hand, while putting up an impressive win against AT early, have the talent to win, but just haven’t put it together consistently this year.  Coming off a win against The Gibson, Haz’s Teachers roll into the battle of the Turkeys looking to topple their brothers (and sisters) from another mother and turn their season around, while the Nest is looking to continue to dominate and move closer to the #1 overall seed.  The battle of the Turkeys – may the best Pecker win!!!

Field #2: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Loggers (Stryker)

Both of these teams are coming off some rough losses last week and will be looking to redeem themselves a bit in time for the break.  We’ll see if the Holy Rollers can make up for all those gutterballs they threw last week against AT and fend off the mighty Logger’s axes from turning their Bowler’s lanes in to wood chips.  The Loggers lost a tough one last week also. but it really wasn’t their fault. My pitching was just insane. i don’t think Jeter could have hit me last week.  If the KingPins can score more than 9, i would say they have a good chance of winning this one.  God i am so sick of the “9” joke, but dammit, I will not stop using it.

1pm

Field #1: Gibson vs. 3 Kings (Stache)

While I can’t be certain, the last Gibson victory may have been against 3Ks back in 2012.    You could say that these 2 franchises have been on far different paths over the last few seasons.  The Kings have climbed out of the WSL cellar and are now giving nightmares to opposing pitchers, while the Gibson have continually struggled to find even one win.  Despite the divergent paths, week 10 saw both 3 Kings and the Gibson get basted by teams from the Turkey’s Nest.  The Kings took the league-leading OG Turkey’s to the brink, but came up a little short, while the Gibbys had the much-improved Teachers on the ropes before surrendering the lead in the late innings.

Due to some possible ‘editorial hazing” of the new kid, I feel like I have been writing about the Gibson almost as much as my own team this season.  As I look back over these previews and recaps, I can’t even imagine the kind of bulletin board material that I have provided for Adrian and the Gibbys.  No doubt, I will need mix up the King’s playbook this week.

WHICH TEAM WILL BRING THE…

Field #2: Clemerica vs. AT United (Stryker)

The Battleship looks to extend their one game winning streak against AT United and El Drunko Tanko’s demon seed.  AT is coming off a lucky win against the Bowlers, who had threw a rare gutterball in their game last week, leading United’s to their go ahead runs.  With 4th of July approaching ( The Most American of Holidays ) Clemerica ( The Most American of Teams ) look to channel their four fathers and win this war.  This week the Battleship will be loading up their cannons with a secret weapon that this league hasn’t seen yet this year. That weapon?  A full load of Irish Cream that’s gonna get all up in AT’s face and hair.  Bring your moist towlettes, United, cause this one is gonna get messy real quick.

3pm

Field #1: Black Betty vs. RBar (Stache)

Betty’s Bum, Bum of Betty

Normally this would be the kind of “strength meets strength” contest that we all love to watch on a Sunday afternoon…the Black Betty gloves vs the R Bar bats.  Don’t pull up your lawn chair just yet, because this isn’t your normal WSL season.

The month of June has shown a very different side to the Bettys, who are suddenly searching for that multiple-championship form that they have been notorious for in the WSL.  That historically-stifling BB defense has been missing and the offense has not been able to overcome the errors.  No better time to return to form than the present, right?   Camarra and crew will have their hands full, because the team in the other dugout is clicking on all cylinders.

R Bar comes into the matchup scoring over 15 runs per game and the Bums have ridden roughshod over the Fashion North in the last 3 weeks.  A win this Sunday over the surprisingly slumping Black Betty would complete the division sweep and keep them sitting atop their own Godsy North division (aka Group of Death).  Riding the hot bat of rookie Steven “Bubbs” Conners, the rest of the Bums are eyeing a division crown and a championship run.

I do have one little suggestion for Betty.  They had better not sleep on D-Lo this week!  She has been scorching her way up the WSL HR Leaderboard this month!

Field #2: Good Company vs. Crown Victoria 86-ers (Shortz)

Both clubs are feeling high and mighty after their respective wins in week 10.

Since Holland was nice enough to write an entire post dedicated to the playoff seeding, and more importantly, to the fact that Good Co. is currently #1 in their division (confetti!), I present a map of every way Good Co. stays #1 in their division (ala World Cup…morons):

  • Good Co. beats Crown Vic / Black Betty beats R Bar
  • Good Co. loses to Crown Vic / Black Betty loses to R Bar
  • Good Co. loses to Crown Vic / Black Betty beats R Bar (but still have a higher RA that Good Co.)
  • Good Co. & Crown Vic draw (both teams get devoured by a Bear) / Black Betty & R Bar draw  (because Kevin convinces both sides that it’s “nicer” if no one’s a loser)
  • Good Co. loses to Crown Vic (put the game in protest because Sgt. Andre bites Mike V. and the result gets overturned) / Black Betty beats R Bar (with 2 outs in the 9th inning after a blown call from Count Chocula)

5pm

Field #1: Soft Spot vs. Reel 2 Reel (Shortz)

Reel2Reel is done salivating over their Betty victory and are focused on achieving their second win in two weeks against the unpredictable Yetis. But, the Yeti’s current record in no way reflects on their talent, so it behooves us to buckle up for a battle.

I really had to dig into my email archives to find when these clubs last met. According to my records, it was…2011?

Ah 2011, what a simpler time. Back when the people thought they could bring down Wall Street with various hand signals and Prince William and Kate Middleton showed us what “true love do”.

It was also a time of bullshit global weather! Hurricanes, Tsunamis, Super Tornadoes…Perhaps both teams will hide away for fear our reunion will bring back some of that nasty weather.

Win, lose or stay home, I definitely promise to make more video tributes!

Field #2: Pete’s Candy Store vs. Spike Hill (WSL SUPERFAN)

After losing several players from the previous season, Pete’s, led by the drollest umpire in the league, Sam, looks like they have turned it around.  They are sporting one of the stingiest defenses in the league and have impressive wins against Good Company and Reel 2 Reel this season.

Meanwhile, Spike Hill is coming off a less than stellar performance against an ascendant Good Company.  Can the Candystorians regain their former 2001 glory against the defending (yet suddenly mortal) Champs? That was a bit forced I think, but what is a Spike Hill, anyway, and why has no one asked until now???  Is it a veiled reference to Vlad the Impaler or a secret cocktail consumed only by the Rich Kids of Instagram? And, what’s with this guy pouring wine into the pool from #RKOI?  Is it a nice wine?  I can’t even see the label, so I’m afraid I’m not impressed with this dude.  Whoops, I may have gotten off topic. #yolo

Will it be Spike Hill back with a W, or Pete’s announcing their re-arrival to the league? 5PM- Nap time for most of us after a day of big buds in the sun, so expect plenty of seats available.

And now for the World Premiere of the World Cup Edition of
