If I could describe this game in one word it would be “DUCK!!!” Team Cupcake was a
worthy opponent today but Layes seemed to have a magnet in his pocket because the
balls went straight at him. He managed to save his knees and face with his glove
and Elaine Benes style moves. His throwing was equally as magnetic, “Urg, that was
a nice throw, I should have hit it.” was uttered by the opposition, over and over.
The game was punctuated by several home-runs and near home-runs. So many that both
teams struck out for multiple out of parks per inning. Toan was one guilty party.
He seemed to put 0 effort into putting it over the fence, including one solo.
Jake took a ball to the back. Looked painful. Katia caught a pop fly at 2nd. She
and Matt had quite a few nice outs at 2nd. Matt gave it 110% as usual, I think he
wears grey only to cover up how much dirt gets on his clothes from all the time he
spends on the ground. It’s effective.
We lost the game. By about 4 points. Team Cupcake was a Pleasure to Play against.
Polite, Pink, Perky and Positive, these Personal Portions of Pastries were brought
to us today by the letter P.
