Hey, sports fans! I’ve regrettably missed the past two weeks of kickball, due to responsibilities at the office and in my building. But I’ve been checking in with your favorite legends of Momma Johnson Park to hear how things have been progressing.
Team Turquoise continues to go undefeated! Our record stands at 5-0-2 as we head into the final weeks of regular season play. Week 6 was apparently a tight contest that saw our heroes eke out a victory. Week 7, however, was epic, in Jill’s words. According to George, the final score was 27 – 6! Amanda confirms this, and reports that the referee (who may or may not have been long-suffering Jerry) tried to invoke a non-existant mercy rule, not once but twice! Team member emeritus Erin came out of retirement to fill the female quota, and broke down the highlights for me over e-mail: Volpe hit a genuine, over-the-fence home run; Brandon took a line drive to the testicles; and one opposing player was suspected of fondling himself in the outfield. That’s our gang: putting the “ball” in “kickball”!
A more thorough recap will follow, providing we can get back on to the fields after Hurricane Irene!
