The air was dry, but the ground was not. An odd frigid 45 degree morning when the previous week was in the 70s.

The Thang

I assigned captains (Sunburn and Moneyball) and the old schoolyard picking began

Team Sunburn – Back Pew, Candu, Cowbell, Iron Butt, Skitch, Snowflake, Venus, VSquared, Whittler

Team Moneyball (aka “Consider the Bunt”) – Care Bear, Fly By, Milkman, Ringwald, Sidekick, Steam Engine, Threeskin, Vila

It was a tight race, but a walk-off bunt by Moneyball solidified the 5-4 win for the aptly named “Consider the Bunt” team.

5 penalty burpees per run scored were enforced.


Very simple message – Count your blessings.


There were murmurs of manliness and bunting. Some people may have even been called names. Guess you had to be there.

Also, roughly 50% of the men either did bust or almost busted their backsides running around the bases. I thought Steam Engine broke his back once, and Vila slid halfway from third and still made it across home plate. We even had to move the playing field once due to the ground. Sorry Landfill groundskeeper, whoever you are.
