The day began promisingly enough. If You Want My Bocce went into the big match against the Coffee Flats Terrors confidently hopeful.
And when they marched in carrying a boombox and playing Public Enemy's "Welcome to the Terrordome," the whole thing seemed utterly silly. Have they spent all of their time planning ridiculous capers like this? Radio Raheem, these clowns were most definitely not. Plus, somehow they thought that by putting the number 23 on their jerseys, they were going to rattle Mike (Reason to Believe). His old nickname on the Terrors was Jordan as in Michael. Was their message that their entire team were Jordan like? That might be true but the whole thing just didn't quite mesh.
Two seconds after the Public Enemy debacle, the jukebox played Elton John's "Daniel." Yet another sign! Our team was going to do well!

However, as soon as Mitch (Downtrain Train) lost the coin toss, I was a little worried. But he and other fellow rookie Adam (Gettin' Hungry) looked fine in the first frame and my spirits soared.
Are the Terrors worried?
This picture is from Slice's photostream. Check the link for more pictures and a completely radical note left by Balgavy. Youthlarge is quite intrigued as to how one goes about leaving a note? Any advice?
I might have looked good in the photo, but I sure didn't play well. The Terrors were just too damn good. Maybe their entrance did scare us and throw us off of our game. We lost 7-4 and 7-2. Don't despair though because Slice plans on creating a team blog for all to peruse and enjoy.
Sunday: Snow and Strat-O-Matic
Yes, that father is burying his daughter in the snow.
It is almost March which means only one thing - shorts time for Balgavy.
The main attraction - Dungeons and Dragons for baseball nerds. Strat-O-Matic Baseball. Jamie and I taught the newbies and then we got started. We have a total of eight teams in our league and hope to squeeze in a 28 game season over the next couple of months.
This poor tree can attest to the fact that the snow isn't all fun and games.
