It is time to celebrate everyone's favorite Rolling Blackouts' All Star... That's right, i am talking about Jessi... why would you think that i was talking about joe or ben, that is just weird...
Anyways, where was i... oh yeah, Jessi's birthday party is this friday, october 19th at her place on california street. It is white trash themed so most of you should fit right in with your normal attire!!! Seriously though, dress up or prepare to be turned away at the door. No one likes 'that guy'. Starts at 7PM, so be there at like 4PM to help preparty... and by preparty, i mean make it extremely awkward for everyone involved.
Here is the basic info from the evite (if you didn't already get it)..
Join us to celebrate the big 2-5 with everyone's favorite fist pumping kickball star, and to welcome our little southern belle to the big city.
That's right, kids. Its time to break out your mullet wigs, mesh tanks, and belt buckles. As always, we'll be celebrating in style.
Look forward to seeing you all next Friday... Remember to brush up on your beer pong and B.Y.O.P.B.R
Location: 1272 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94109 US
VERY IMPORTANT: This is a theme party and white trash attire is REQUIRED to attend. But let's be honest, if you can't pull off white trash, what kind of costume party can you pull off. So get your act together and get yourself a wife beater, some flannel, sh*tty jeans, etc... bonus points for mullet wigs..
And remember to bring something to drink as i don't know how long the supplies will last at their pad.

After yet another great season of kickball, it is time to send this bad boy off proper. The party is going to be at Sugar this Friday, October 12th at 9PM. Open bar as long as the money lasts (usually a good hour and a half to two hours) and guests are welcome (they will be charged a cover). So get your act together and get there on Friday night. These BALLS aren't going to party themselves!

It is on tomorrow! We are going to dominate the rest of the league on our way to the grand prize and all the glory that comes from winning... Be there at noon if you are on the squad, or around 1230 if you just want to watch the lessons that we hand out...

Happy Birthday, Alan! Man we have had our fair share of birthdays this week. I didn't crop Nav out of the photo as i think that it is hilarious that he and alan are trying to show who has the bigger sniz. While i think that Alan technically wins in this photo, we all know that in real life, Nav is hands down queen vajayjay....

Today is Danny's Bday, and Sean had his yesterday... So happy birthday boys.... but that brings me to an interesting question. Look at what danny is wearing in that photo. Does he look like a pirate? I didn't think so. It just boggles the mind that someone born on International Talk Like a Pirate Day wouldn't embrace the pirate culture... I mean look what pirates have done for the environment! So in conclusion, i think that we should all wish Danny and Sean a Happy Birthday.... but we need to mock danny mercilessly for his poor pirating skills
Today, Sept 19th, be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Do ye best to be as piratey as possible! Whether that be saying things such as "Avast ye, matey... Walk the plank!... etc" or illegally downloading some music online, make sure that you are sticking it to the man one way or another... Oh, and everyone best be plundering some Booty tonight!
as another reminder we are on field 3 (the one all the way back in the corner) at 6PM... Be there! YARRRGH!

She is called the Buckshot Bar and Gameroom and she is a beaut. Free skiball, pool tables, shuffleboard, darts (regular and butt)... here is the yelp
link.. read the reviews and bask in the glory that is our new wednesday afternoon spot....
Here are some more details....
3848 Geary Blvd
(between 2nd Ave & 3rd Ave)
San Francisco, CA 94118 (415) 831-8838
Essentially, it is a block and a half from the new fields and looks to be a sweet spot to grab some $2 PBRs before we dominate some other team at Kickball.
HUGE game this week. We are facing the only other undefeated team in the league, and our long time rivals, The Recess Warriors. The game is at 7PM on field 2. Be there by 645 to get some warm up drills in. Let's win this one and let them know that we are the team to beat from now on! Scouting report to follow in the email.

Good job out there yesterday... totally came back and dominated the 'humps'... some awards...
MVP: Joe "homerun" Donnelly... man, your parents really called that one when they named you. Well played buddy. Nothing like a little homerun to put the other team on the defensive.... even if you did fall over in left field trying to get a ball that was hit right to you....
Honorable Mention: Jennie Martucci... A couple of key catches that really shut the black team down. We won't talk about your 'buckneresque' moment where the ball when through your legs (there has to be a good joke in there somewhere)....
2nd mention: Kelly Greenly... key catch in the outfield.... nice play, kelly..
Sweetest moves: Danny Brehm? What sealed it for me is when that chick had a little chip shot and danny comes out of nowhere to catch it... the other team is complaining that he was in front of the batter.... but not so much.... the best was when castillo said, "man, danny would be dangerous if he was wearing cleats". good job dan-o....
Most consistent: Jessi... As usual, she scores the first run... it is pretty much clockwork.. keep up the good work.
Best no show: Paul. Seriously, man... show up to work and get your sh*t done so that you can get to the field, or even the bar.... you are killing me... plus how is that 'stache supposed to get any if you don't take it out sometime?
Dirtiest Bunter: Vance... i have never seen anyone who only kicks the ball about 2 feet in front of the plate that can consistently outrun the throw from the catcher... nice!
Worst Flip Cup player: Rob... i am sorry guys... thankfully the rest of the team carried me so that we still won more than we lost, but i was a liability last night.. i am going to go ahead and blame it on the fact that is was a balmy 1.2 million degrees down in the pit... Next time i will just stick to coaching....
Most likely to bring 'em young: Julie Martucci... she didn't even take down the 23 year old she was hanging with last night... my theory is that she is keeping her game tight by keeping up on the latest in power rangers, TMMT, etc.. she is going to need it this weekend when she 'meets the parents' of the 17 year old (he might be 18, not sure)... nice...
Best 1-4-24 player: Rob... i somehow won like $35 last night... i didn't think that it was possible, but whatever... i should have just gone to tahoe (ken, were you 'up in tahoe' last night?)
Worst shuffleboard players: Joe and his girl, katie... They got stomped by Jessi and I (who then got stomped by julie and her young friend)...
Best late night spot: KT's... As always, a great place to end the night with sean playing sing along songs ... how can you go wrong... it was all totally worth the hangover that i have right now....

|Alright guys, our game this week is huge. We are playing the black team who are also undefeated and are in second place right behind us. The reason I am writing this post so early in the morning is because I just woke up from a dream I had about this game. In my dream we barely got there in time and then got our asses handed to us because Mike Nuckles kept dropping fly balls in the outfield. I think the final score was 5-1. This cannot happen. If Nuckles shows up to the game I am psychic and we are screwed. Otherwise I think we should be fine. This team is good so we have to bring it on, and by bring it on I mean stomp the yard, and by stomp the yard I mean I want us to be the ones saying You got served when all is said and done. Please read Rob's directions below and make sure to get there well before 6, we can't have a forfeit for a game this big.|

Also, we are on a new field. A map of the old and new locations is above, please do whatever it is you have to do to make it to the field in a timely manner. Any questions can be directed to me by email. Here is a link to the google map of the address...

So yesterday in the 1st annul go-car photo scavenger hunt, two blackouts, jessi and ben, took home the gold medals. It was a tough battle which also saw to more blackouts on the winner's podium (danny and nav), but ultimately it was the drive and determination of two of last years all stars. Pretty sure that the F'ing sweet jackets helped tremendously as well.

If you were looking out for Ben, then you might have missed this guy! Whoa, I can hardly stare at that photo without feeling grave concern for all other teams in the league. I mean, just look at the fire in those eyes. This is selective breeding at it's best. And yes, ladies, he's still on the market. Get some today!

This week pits us against the "Double Baggers" (DB's)... now i am not positive, but i think that is what Joey Evans has to do with two garbage bags to keep his ginormous head from getting soaked in the rain.
The Game is 740 on Field 3.
Long story short is that this team is an offshoot of the WMC's from last season. Full scouting report to follow in email form.

Well, we did it again. I know that it isn't that big of a surprise, but we did have a little worry in the first inning. Luckily, DC worked the kinks out and ended up pitching tremendously for the last three innings. Ty Vance had one of the scariest dives i have seen yet at kickball, but somehow managed to break his fall into the concrete with his head, and was no worse for the wear. Terry had about +/- infinity catches in right field, but his sliding prowess was really the highlight of the day. I have never seen anyone try to slide into a base from about 10 ft out.... without having any forward momentum...
Anyway, great job all. We put up a bunch of runs, stepped it up on defense, and partied our balls/labs off at the bar. That is how we roll. Well played, everyone, well played...

Well if you are, then you are in luck because everyone's favorite teammate that also entertains us at KT's (well at least the only one who gets paid to entertain us) has booked a gig at the Red Devil Lounge on Saturday, October 20th. Tickets will be available for pre-sale, with a nominal increase at the door.
Alright kiddies.... Our competition is going to be hitting up the Boom Boom before the game tomorrow... so you best be bringing your best drinking shoes.... We need to make sure that we beat them at drinking, beat them at the game, then beat them at drinking (albeit at a different bar). So get fired up!

So, the pink elephant says everything about our team. The only question is: What do we name it? Leave your suggestions in the comments... The best ones will be put to a vote by the team. Once we have him named, we will order him and get him outfitted with a proper uniform!
First off, let me say that I couldn’t be happier with this team and the great start that we have been off to. As I sit here at work and am counting down the minutes until this Wednesday’s game, it struck me - we have no mascot! Well that is all about to change. After careful deliberation, I think that that there is no better mascot than a Drunken Pink Elephant. We have all seen them and I think we need to embrace them by plastering this image on anything we can – shirts, flags, team tattoos, etc.
As Barney from the Simpsons said, “Thank you pink elephant, you have always been there for me.”

Alright guys, this week we have the yellow team. Be very wary of them. We all know that historically they have not exactly been the best team in the league, but from what i have seen this season, we need to be careful. Bring the A-game! A more detailed scouting report will be coming out in the next day or two over the email...
I'm Zoe, I know how to take down birthday shots likes its my job...... Happy early bday, zoe. And for those of you curious, her birthday is this upcoming wednesday, when we take on (and inevitably beat) the yellow team.
