Big Game


Tonight we face the "dreaded" Kick in a Box at 715 on Field 2.

Some of you might remember a bit of this shit talking from last season... Well I haven't heard too much out of their court this time around, so... I am going to assume that they are ready just bend over and take it....

What are your predictions for the score?

Game 3: Former Galatic Prophylactics


Today we play Galactic Prophylactic or Mr. Bodangles, or whatever they are calling themselves these days... Basically, take a look at the picture above and substitute baby blue for the darker blue in the picture and you will have exactly who we are playing.

Game is at 630 on Field 1.

Be there and help us crush nerds.

Playoffs: Take 2


After a little rain delay, we are going to be going for the second attempt to wrap up this up this Sunday.  First game is 11AM be there at 1030 to get warmed up!

Let's close out the season with a playoff victory and the first perfect season in Kickballs/Blackout history!

It is time to put the regular season behind us and clear our minds for the playoffs this weekend... I can't think of a better way to help "clear" the mind than an exhilarating game of sloshball (and its associated memory erasing powers).  

We are going to be paired up with KIAB to build some bridges (and party some balls) before the games on Saturday.  So get out to the fields, have a bronson or 12, and make out with a stranger!

End of the Regular Season...

Blackouts, way to close out the regular season undefeated!  It is the first time in 10 seasons that we have pulled it off and it is pretty sweet if you ask me.... 

However, we are far from done..  Playoffs next weekend are going to be a true test.  So get some rest, party some balls, and otherwise do what you have to do to get ready for next weekend!

In balls we trust,

Apparently the first go around between the Blackouts and KIAB didn't sit well with some of the KIABers... So, i suppose that it is time to start the shit talking machine up again....  

The latest volley from their court is accusing us of somehow cheating in our game against them. I am curious as to how we had time to cheat in between allowing them one baserunner on the night and putting up 5 runs to their goose egg.  I am sure however we cheated made the difference.

We will see you guys in playoffs!

League Champs!

Checklist for the Blackouts:

(x) Win the CA Redwoods league
(x) Party Balls
(_) Win Playoffs

Team,  great game last night.  One baserunner allowed all game.  I don't think that they even got through their order...  KIAB, you guys had some great defense as well, but in the end it was the Blackout steamroller offense that decided the game.  Can't wait for the rematch in the playoffs!

Until, let's all party some balls!

Business as Usual...

Hey, "Kick in a Box", i have a feeling it is going to be one of those nights, so here are some Mashed Potatoes for you...

For those of you looking for a little midweek excitment, come check out the game of the season for the CA Redwoods division @ Kimball Park at 745.  Lots of great kickball, some bronsons, possibly some public nudity...  just kidding, there will be nudity.

Yellow Team

If this kid isn't a blackout in training, i don't know what is.  Look at the ferocity on his face as he is crushing the yellow peeps.  That is exactly what we are going to do this wednesday.

Game is at 745 on Field 4.  Be there to witness the blackouts crush some yellow team ass!

King of the Hill!


Tonight we decide a couple of things:

1) Who is the best cup flipper on the team
2) Who is the best in the league (obviously whoever is #1 will be #2)

Keep your eyes on the prize!

Kickin' Ass

This season is off to a damn good start.  Steamrolling the first two teams and poised to be back at the top of the Redwoods game has us sitting pretty.  So, let's keep our heads in the game and our livers on alert.  It is going to be a long season and i don't want anyone wimping out becuase they "have to work late" or "they said i will be fired if i show up hungover again".  We don't like excuses on this team, just domination.

New Blood

Looks like we are going to be mixing it up a bit this year with some new blood... Should be quite interesting to see how it all works out... Just kidding, we are going to stomp everyone and everything in our path to the championship!

Yellow Team the Eatly Years....

Alright. Not sure how it happened, but the Yellow Team has managed to work their way into second place. Tonight, we show them that we are playing at a higher level. Besides, if we can't beat these guys, we are going to have to do some serious reevaluation.

Another win...

Team, we really need to work on the offense. Two close games in a row is really more than i can take. Additionally, we are taking that energy to the bar which is really hurting our flip cup performance. Unacceptable... we need to focus on our offensive strategies on the field, at the flip cup table, and in picking up people at the bar....
Luckily for us, Kristen brought her A-game this week. Walsh, Friedman, let's get it going next week!

Close One!

Boys and girls of the Blackouts.... Last night was a close one. Team "in the pink" gave us a run for our money and we barely scraped by. I love close games, but that one was a little too close. Let's get our shit together!

Game Day: Pink Team

Game Day, Moose "Shockers"...

Here we go again, boys and girls! Let's get some.. I found this photo of the pink team. To be honest, they don't look so tough, only truth and time will tell....

Floating Balls

Team, great work out there yesterday. Loving where this is going, so keep it up or you will be cut.... kidding, kind of... Also, let's get on that flip cup table and dominate like we did towards the end of the night.
