One More Sleep!!!

So I'm kind of embarrassed!  Tim must have snuck into my room last night and took a picture of me sleeping.  Ever since the uniforms came in I've been wearing my jersey to bed, and lady's, incase you were wondering.....nothing else.  The kickball pillow is a trend I've been trying to set for the past six months, it's not really catching on, and I think I'm starting to develop some kind of 'bifida' from it.  I was spooning the other kickball because I'm incredibly lonely.  

We are playing Ballz Deep Friday at 6:30.  Last year we were 1-3 against them with scores of 7-9, 5-6, 7-11 in the loses and 10-9 in our one win.  So I anticipate a good old fashioned Cockfight!  Bonsall, I know you don't need any motivation, but this is the team that you got all bloodied up with last year, and won your only "Ass of the Week Award".

The game time temperature will be about 88 and windy, but it is suppose to feel like 90.  Needless to say Bonsall's armpit sweat will be ample.  I suggest you bring a little water with you, Cross will let everyone know who is bringing beer.  Tim, since you are more than likely the authority for getting a peak performance in hot weather, any tips will help.  As far as I can tell the biggest advantage to it being so hot is that we will be sweating the booze out so fast it won't have time to get to our bladders and we won't even notice there is no bathroom at this field. 

We are playing at Key Field.  Map and directions below.  Traffic is going to be a pain in the ass, with 696 down to a couple of lanes from M53 to Coolidge, so plan ahead.  Try to be at the field by at least 6:10 or 6:15 please, So far we have 6 and 6.  Girls are Shannon, Leah, Kerri, Ang, Erica, and Sarah.  Guys are Bonsall, Cross, Tim, Mike, Steve, and myself.  Should be pretty solid.  I'm bringing the T-Shirt, you bring your $35 big ones.....I feel like Norman Dale right before he walked into the gym for the first game "Welcome to Oak Park Kickball" (I bet only Cross got that joke).

Hydration is key...everyone should drink a gallon of water 24 hours prior to game time. Be that asshole at work walking around with a gallon of water that everyone asks, "so, do you have a drug test coming up or something". Stretch before you go to bed tonight and in the morning...stay nimble, stay fresh and be ready. If you have not been doing any kickball specific training yet, don't cram it in now. Walk on the field well-rested and ready to fight tomorrow.
