Week 5 Game Previews

MFR (-6) vs. Ball Busters
While Ball Busters hasn’t meshed together on field as well as they had hoped, at least they have been kicking ass at the bar! Actually, no… that’s a lie. They suck there too. It seems they’ve yet to discover that the key to kickball success is alcohol copious amounts… something their opponent this week, MFR, has embraced in their lackluster season. Prediction: MFR continues their streak against lesser teams and delivers the same shellacking against Ball Busters as they did against NKOTB last week.

Nerdblasters (-8) vs. New Kicks on the Block
As long as more than half of their players show up with cleats on tonight, Nerdblasters should be putting on a scoring clinic against New Kicks. NKOTB on the other hand is still in shock wondering how they were eliminated in the first round at the Flip Cup Tournament of Champions. I’ll tell you how… Audrey wasn’t there. Prediction: A drunk Nerdblasters team takes an easy win.

Sole Assassins vs. Saved by the Ball (-3)
“At least we didn’t lose” seems to be Sole Assassins only consolation so far this season. After escaping last week with a tie against one of the stronger teams, Sole Assassins is looking to ride this momentum into tonight’s game against Saved by the Ball. Unfortunately, the weight of this momentum is comparable to that of a ping pong ball being tossed in a beer pong game… easily stopped with a soft blow or a two finger wiggle. Prediction: If Saved by the Balls avoids the defensive errors they’ve been prone to recently, expect them to easily cover the spread.

The Draft vs. Ball Busters (-4)
While The Draft remains as the only unbeaten team in South Bay, their wins as of late has been wholly unimpressive. Barely edging by Nerdblasters last week by a point, The Draft has shown some of its defensive vulnerabilities. Fortunately for them, they matchup this week against a struggling Ball Busters team which will also be missing a few key players. With Big Kahuna playoffs the next morning, will the Draft members even show up to play? Prediction: Even the girls on The Draft can give Ball Busters a run for their money. Take the Draft to cover the spread.

#jamaicanmerunmahn vs. Urine Trouble (even)
Game of the Week. Two teams with both highly skilled players and highly drunk drinkers. This game will come down to who’s sober enough to make it through five innings without urinating in the dugout. Urine Trouble enters this week looking to defend their 2nd place spot against #jamaicanmerunmahn. (Wait… hold the fucking phone… UT is in 2nd place? Dennis, did you screw up on the standings?) #jamaicanmerunmahn on the other hand promised another smackdown on UT just as they did at last week’s Flip Cup Tournament of Champions. Prediction: Urine Trouble with a narrow victory over the flip cup champs.

Week 5 Bar League Challenge – DAS Pitcher

March 29, 2013 |  by  |  Blog  |  No Comments

with a straw

Each team gets a pitcher of beer (they provide their own pitcher) and have to drink it through a straw. The beer can get passed arond to 5 team members in a continuous circle until the beer is finished. The team who finishes the entire pitcher the fastest wins. Each team must include 2 girls.  Two teams will go head to head but overall standings will be determined by individual times.

1st Place = 4 points
2nd Place = 3 points
3rd Place = 2 points
Participation = 1 point

*Each team is responsible for their own pitcher of beer.

Mo Knows: Flip Cup… advice from a 5 time flip cup champ

I don’t know about you, but I live for two very magical words each kickball season: “MATCH UP!”  It’s like music to my little alcoholic ears.

Speaking as someone who has won 5 flip cup championships in her kickball life (but I’m not one to brag), anyone can master the art of flip cup. You were there last week….you saw my skills. BOOM! Ya, I said it! So, listen up because I’m here to share what I’ve learned along the way and maybe you can provide me with a little competition next season <<<<< WTF? This bitch has some nerve!!!

  • Don’t “drink” the beer!! Any serious flip cupper should be SHOOTING that shit down your throat like it’s a god damn tequila shot or whatever else you like to get down quickly without actually tasting. The speed of which you consume the beer makes a world of difference. This is not a sippy cup game, nor is it a game for spitters. #GetItTogetherRookies
  • One Hand + Opposite Finger. For example: I shoot the beer with my left hand and flip the cup with my right hand (middle finger). Those of you who insist on using one hand for everything (there’s an inappropriate joke in there some where), are losing valuable time. It’s more difficult to balance a cup on the edge of the table with the same hand you use to drink. Every. Second.Counts. #DontFuckItUp
  • Don’t Rush. I do realize this contradicts the above bullet point, but trust me, as much as you want to hurry & save precious seconds, you must also take your time. Weird, I know. Nobody likes a spaz who is going so fast they fumble their cup in the air five times and then proceed to drop it on the floor. #FAIL
  • MOVE OUT THE WAY! Give your teammates breathing room when it’s their turn to flip. By crowding them, you run the risk of getting a sharp elbow to the rib or groin area. Remember, you are amongst vicious, vicious flip cuppers. Protect yourself. #OnlyTheStrongSurvive.
  • Last but not least…. NEVER, EVER challenge me. I will beat you. I will beat your team by myself. Seven of you and ONE of me. It’s embarrassing. Don’t do it. #ImAMachine

A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to Kah Restaurant last Friday night and participated in South Bay Kickball’s 3rd Flip Cup championship!! CONGRATULATIONS to my team #jamaicanmerunmahn, who ended up taking home the trophy (that’s me not bragging again). AND a well-deserved chest bump to Danae Busby of Saved by the Ball, who represented her team alone & single-handedly took down just about everyone that night. Any girl who can flip cup like that is a friend of mine!!

 

See ya at the fields!!
