So week one is in the books, and the Double Deuce is 0-2. I have some mixed emotions about the game. I guess I would compare it to when I was younger and I would play video games for hours on end.....It was fun, but it wasn't something I would run out and tell all my friends about. It's kind of the same feeling when you "hook up" with a not so attractive someone at da' club, or rub one out to the Victoria Secret catalog...ok you got me, the JC Penny Spring/Summer Catalog. I guess what I'm saying is that when it was all over I really didn't feel like high 5'ing a lot. However, it wasn't all gloom and doom. I still had a great time, which I hope everyone did, and we had several bright spots.
#1 Shannon's back down to her fighting weight. I didn't want to say it last year, but I was more than a little disappointed that Mrs. Bonsall didn't have the baby weight gone by the beginning of last season. I didn't bring it up because I thought there would be some backlash from the females on the team for pointing out the fact that she gave birth about 40 days before game one, that's 960 hours, 57,600 minutes. HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU NEED!!!!!?????? I brought it up to a couple of people and the consensus was that I would be called a "Jerk" or possibly even an "Insensitive Bastard". But that's all water under the bridge because Shannon looks faster than ever, which is a big deal going forward.
#2 Two words, Steven Birchfield. In Steve's first kickball game he did very well. Some, nice kicks, and some amazing catches. Lets face it, and with no disrespect to the ladies in the field, Tim and Steve basically covered that outfield themselves in some very windy conditions. I'm unsure if Steve will be able to get back to any games this year because his mean spirited self-centered girlfriend is making him get a job. However, I look forward to facing off against Steve August 16th in the Port Hope Tournament when he brings in a team of his own....and every time he is up I'm going to yell "Hey Panicy-Pants Birchfield! Remember that time you went to kick the ball and fell on your ass? Ass Face!".
#3 It's just nice to be playing kickball again.
I would like to take this moment, to give out "Ass of the Week". We had a couple options this week, Bonsall hit a nice home run. Tim made some nice plays in the outfield. Erica Little made her kickball debut, I always take a little pride in introducing someone new to the game and become excited for them. On that note I would like to mention last year's newcomer Kerri Dhyse who completely blew off people that were volunteering to cure cancer to be at the field Friday. That effort alone gives Kerri the runner up award. However, the week one "Ass of the Week" goes to Steven Birchfield. Way to go Steve!
This week we play The Freeballers, with a little effort we should live up to our team name and our record will be a Double Deuce...2-2.
Let me know if you are in for this week by posting below. You don't have to log on, you can just post anonymously and sign your name. FYI, the U.P. Coalition will be here next week, so I'm looking forward to Mr. Bonsall being on the bench, Scott and Leigh in the field, and Mrs. Bonsall (Not Shannon) watching the baby.
