, originally uploaded by slowchildrenatplay.

We have nicknames like Smokes, Gunther, and Sk8r Boi. Half the team smokes, some drink before the game, and we generally suck. The pre-game pep talk consisted of them deciding who needed to talk to the police first about the bar fight that sent our pitcher to the hospital last weekend. Those of us not involved aren't even phased by the conversation.

We play in a men's softball league at a now-defunct former Air Force Base on a field with sharp chain linked fences and holes in the outfield. I'm the oldest on the team, and I'm the fastest guy. All of these factors mean we rarely win. The Bad News Bears ain't got nothing on us.

We played tonight and lost to a team of guys wearing jeans. Jeans. Like they decided to play some ball while they were on break from work. And they beat the crap out of us. Wearing jeans. Thank God they had shoes on.

With finger and thumb in the shape of an L on my forehead...

As long as you old guys are having fun, right?

He didn't tell you what his nickname is!

What is your nickname Shaun????
That story just made me laugh outloud in my little personal work hell. If you are the fattest guy on the team that ain't that bad cuz you ain't fat..I love the smoking and drinking though..those are my kinda boys.

Shong. Thats what mom calls him.
Kev kinda gave up on his team. They are a team of medical geeks that work in mental health. They cant seem to get the batting order or playing order right. I think their pitcher walked every single person but one. They lost, go figger.

By the way, Shaun, you have to go over and check out the Pope Ring at Kranki's: http://www.krankipantzen.blogspot.com/. Wouldn't that be kick ass for the Fonz?

Shong sounds so... dirty.

well, Kristine kinda oversold my nickname....it's T-Ball. I'm known for hitting the ball and then running like hell, daring fielders to throw me out. You see smaller (ok, slightly smaller) versions of me at every t-ball game in America.

tee ball, how cute. my friend had a horse named stewball. well, it was kind of like a horse. more like a mean ol shetland pony that bucked liked a mofo everytime anyone got on him.

Blogger Shaun commented at 3:17 PM~  

Yeah, my nickname WAS going to be "mean ol shetland pony that bucked liked a mofo", but there wasn't enough room on my shirt.

Sorry to hear you suck. Any cute boys (single)? HAHA
