The Interleague Song:

WSL (hushed but intense): Interleague. Interleague. Interleague. Interleague.

O’Malley: I hear perfect records are ruined in interleague play.

Commish: But the lesser teams get to have their day.

Natalie: Is there a chance we won’t like the teams we face?

Commish: Not any more then the teams in our groups in this championship race.

Denis: Doesn’t only Black Betty benefit from interleague play?

Commish: C’mon now, that would just be cray. (wink)

Mike V: Were you sent here by the devil?

Commish: No good sir, I’m on the level.

Czr: The ring came off my cold beer can.

Commish: Take my penknife, my good man.

Commish: I swear, it’s the WSL’s only choice! Throw up your hands and raise your voice!

WSL: Interleague!

Commish: What’s that called?

WSL: Interleague!

Commish: Once Again!

WSL: Interleague!

Chelsey: But my glove is still broken!

Kevin: Sorry babe, the mob has spoken.

WSL: Interleague!

WSL: Interleague!

WSL: INTERLEAGUE!!!

WSL: INTERLEAGUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(BEAT) 

Mike Q: INTER- DOH!

11AM

Field #1: Roebling Sports Club @ Berry Park (Shortz)

The sporting club and the once soccer bar turned 40/40 Club face off at Zak’s FAVORITE TIME- 11am. Man, we haven’t played you guys in a million years. If memory serves, it was 2011. But I was in Vegas, so who cares. We probably won. These pesky league divisions have previously kept us apart, but no more!

We will be mere feet away from the team we only usually see drinking under the trees by field two. We’ll be making plays against the long locks of Toolan and Aaron, Jason’s cashmere pride and entire Pizza family. I liken this reunion to a true Yeti sighting.

During my daily mediations…in front of the TV as I watch my stories, I’ve pondered why we haven’t been winning. We have our “I’m too old for this shit” but actually they’re better than half the league” veterans. We have our fantastic pick ups. We even have the best sponsor in the God Damn world (Roebling Sporting Club- the utilitarian sports bar pairing whiskies & other drinks with inventive pub grub, TVs & dancing- go there now!).

What is our problem? And then, in times of such reflection, came the “Holy shit!” moment. We’ve been Way. Too. Sober. So to remedy this tactical blunder, I’m making sure we have all the booze on hand, (our magic juice, if you will), to keep us strong and to whoop dat ass.

Are you ready for us, you Soft Pool Parkers?

P.S. Even though we’ve pretty much mentioned him every week so far, this one’s for you, Pizza!

STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY, STEPH, BABY BOY

Field #2: Crown Vic 86ers @ Turkey’s Teachers ()

There’s still time to change history!

The 86ers finally slipped up last week, after a strong start to the 2015 campaign. Their loss to Black Betty created a 3 way tie at the top of the Godsy South division, heading into inter-league play. Up next for Crown Vic is the struggling Turkey’s Teachers squad, as they set their sights on the outright division lead.

On paper, the Teachers are looking like a massive underdog on Sunday. They have struggled to keep runs off the board on defense, giving up a league-worst 79 runs through Week 3. Perhaps they’ll figure it out this Sunday, since the 86ers offense hasn’t exactly been clicking either. Not ready to declare this the “upset special” of the week or anything, just expecting this to be a competitive game!

1PM

Field #1: The Bedford @ Black Betty (Homer Wadsworth)

That’s Mo with a wig!

This past fall and throughout the winter the Spike Hill gang lost their headquarters, their clubhouse and their sponsorship. What they didn’t lose was the will to win or attract new talent. The days of Mikal O’Riley running the team were a thing of the past and the new captain\coach\All-Star\phoenix was born out of the ashes to lead the team to victory: Morgan and The Bedford have arrived.

Last fall we saw Chuck track down Dubin’s last inning attempt to upset the upstart Nest in the quarterfinals, but he couldn’t get the distance or find the line, Spike Hill got bounced and foot\ankle surgery was needed. The team this year has some new dudes after the pirate defections of Bobby and Kelly for hoppier pastures. POTW3 Doug is making a run for WSL Homer history and locking down 3B putting the real pressure on Alex to be the OG HR guy. Matty “Pumpfake” is locking down SS and O’Malley is still stretching that hammy on the sidelines. They are 3-0 and after a close win on opening day against the 3 Kings, rolled over the Teachers and took on Berry Park with positive results. Now they face their old rivals, The Betty.

Black Betty lost their opener to Impose and reeled off x2, convincing wins against a struggling RSC and then against the streaking 86ers. Last week, the lefties in the lineup did most of the damage sending linedrives towards Driggs. Papa Peralta will be back in action this week with Benny Blanco making another appearance for the Betty. The Black Curtain D has helped keep the pressure on teams to keep up with the scoring barrage that beer league softball demands.

Predictions? This game will either be a really good game or a blowout. The game of the week might be Enids vs Turkey’s Nest, but this is a classic WSL matchup and we’re hoping for a barnburner.

Field #2: 3 Kings @ Impose ()

In a classic “strength vs strength” contest, who will prevail? The stingy Impose defense has been holding down opposing bats to the tune of 7 runs per game. Last weekend, they kept RSC to 1 run…yes, 1 stinking run! An impressive start to the 2015 season, for sure, but the question is…will they be able to slow down the hot bats of Three Kings?

3Ks is averaging over 17 runs per game thus far, and are coming off back to back wins. Coach Nick Price is getting production out of every spot in the order, while utilizing his lefty/righty pitching tandem of Denis and Matty No Times to hold down the opposing lineups. Impose hurler, Pete, will certainly have his hands full on Sunday against the Kings. Will Godsy and Co have enough offense of their own to keep pace? Tune in to see which team will notch their 3rd victory of the year!

3PM

Field #1: R Bar @ AT United ()

It’s party o’clock.

Week 3 has a lot of great games on tap and this R Bar / ATU affair will be one of the best! Both teams are coming off a couple of lopsided wins in the previous 2 weeks. R Bar lit up the Clemericans and Gibbys, while ATU buried the Loggers and Runaways. Facing off with each other will provide the first real test for these squads since opening day. Each will be looking to move to 3-1 on the season, while trying to keep pace with their respective division leaders.

New player additions, John R from R Bar and Frank from ATU, have really paid dividends early in the 2015 season. We all know the WSL is a “hitters league” and these boys can HIT! Frank had a 4 hit day in Week 3 and John launched 2 homers! Look for a lot of offense on Sunday…and noisemakers…and booze…always booze.

Field #2: Enids @ Turkey’s Nest (Homer Wadsworth)

This Sunday’s game between the Pinks and the Nest is my pick for GAME OF THE WEEK.

We don’t have a game of the week in this league anymore, but if we did it would be this week’s matchup. I know The Betty are playing The Bedford, but that rivalry is old and really really tiring. Enids versus the Turks is where its at. Field 2. 3PM gametime which means BP starts at 3:30PM…

Tommy TwoNuts, whose defensive play and x3 Homers did NOT win him Player of the Week honors for Week 1 got beat out by the popular Q Crazylastname, WSL’s ‘Sam Malone’, should be back for more this weekend. This dude is on the MVP map with the long distance slugging (what’s the HR total?) and filling in for Jersey Drew or Drew1 at SS, depending on where Dom is putting his Pinkies. Stacy Rowe-em down should be back with her lovely sidepiece Wally, ready for the big matchup they probably planned their vacation around.

For the Nest, things have been a bit different without Backerman but they’re really the same as the Nester’s roll into the 4th week of the season still undefeated and reigning champs. The team has been up to its winning ways: Shafer’s been running bases, Chuck leads off like Chuck, and Laura is the friendliest catcher in the league as I’m told by more than a few Umps (not in that way!). Will JL be in the lineup this week? Will Korny rock the camo and George provide the booze? Will Disco finally turn in a recap? This reporter predicts a low scoring affair with shenanigans early, fireworks late and some seriously controversial calls.

5PM

Field #1: Clemerica @ The Runaways (Homer Wadsworth)

Seems I’ve been writing a bit for the Runaways and needed to get some new shit to write about. Then I got handed Clem’s: Clemerica is one of my favorite teams and I’ve been looking forward to writing about them. When you join the league you play a bunch of teams and judge them and if you don’t play Clem’s right away, they’re the team you look over at and say to yourself: now that’s beer-league softball. Everyone recalls their first Breezy interaction and every umpire has felt obliged to take part in the Clemerica tradition of accepting beers before, during, and after games. Just the other Sunday I saw the massive Battleship flag from a field away, waving in the breeze with a guy and a cooler out front like a masthead. I reminded myself how awesome this league is.

Clem’s is looking for their first ‘W’ and were barred from their own bar after (and before) last Sunday’s loss. The Clemericans headed to the Gibson to have multiple shots with Breezy who reminded me of Edward Budweiserhands as he constantly had three beers in each hand. Obviously, they’ve got the new acquisitions, but the team is full of stars like the hard hitting DBA and the ferocious AND feisty Devan. I think Stryker is also still on this team, too. No bold for you.

The Runaways are looking for their second win of the season after a season opening win against the Loggers. Since then, they’ve played the Nest super tight and last week got ousted by the ATU. Was it Vinny’s boozetax for reaching 3rd? Maybe if they didn’t stop at 3rd base they might’ve won the game and been less soused? We’ll never know. Is Meg due back any time soon? How bout Dom? I asked Sam for the names of some other players and he deferred to Breezy. My prediction for this game: Clem’s will break out and beat up on the Runaways early, but not before the beer kicks in and the Runaways put a scare into the Battleship!

Field #2: Gibson @ Loggers (Shortz)

In the past, this match up has been crudely referred to as “their own little Super Bowl”. But last season, the Loggers beefed up their roster, beating The Gibson by a baker’s dozen plus 1. And as we all know, The Gibson has followed suit. These two teams are not fucking around this season. As a delegate from a 0-3 team, I don’t want to meet either of you until we can get our shit together.

I took a meeting with The Gibson Sunday night, and they GUARANTEED A WIN. They aren’t remotely scared of you Loggers. They could care less about your linebacker, Craig; or your Jets bomber, Al; or even your speed racer, Nunez. They don’t care if your team is entirely made up of The Yankees or the cast of Glee. Ado and the gang are only focused on one thing: capturing on that holy ‘W’.

Now, 5PM is usually way past my bedtime. But if I’m awake, I’ll definitely be checking out this bloodbath. Bring your own poncho!
