Upset!

-Black Vatican City, July 16
In a stunning upset, the Ball Dodgers (AKA "Rules Nazis"), won their first game this evening. Their opponents, the aptly named "Sitting Ducks" were 2-2 coming into the match, and seemingly had no idea what was in store for them. Playing without their manager/coach Troy Scott, and anchor dodger, Maggie Scott, it looked like the 0-4 Dodgers would have a rough time of it, but clutch performances from interim captain Britt "the Squid" Standage and Brendon "Vanilla Fresh" Orr, along with a great walk-on performance from newly acquired free agent "Big Gay" Jim Osborn, helped the underdogs squeak out a victory against the stunned Ducks.

The Dodgers took a more defensive strategy, following the lead of injured thrower, Linus "the Gimp" Furious. "We just started working the back line, and let them throw themselves out" said Furious after the game, with his destroyed elbow in a bucket of ice and Coronas with lime. This defensive strategy paid off, as all of the Dodgers had catches, a first in team history.

The Dodgers have a well-timed bye next week, hopefully allowing them to field a healthy team as they square off against Cinci D's on July 30th. Cinci D's is heavily favored to win.

I caught a ball! It was VERY exciting. :)

Modig_Bjorn said...

and you looked damn fine doing it Jim! ;)

Everyone really played well last night. It was a blast. It also helped that the other team was comprised of great sportsmans/womans.

DEFENSE! DEFENSE!

*CHEEERS*
That's BADA$$!!!!!!

I'm so proud of you guys!
Now you know that since the Sitting Ducks won twice before your match that there is great potential for at least 2 more wins for the Dodgers!!!
I'm also sad that I couldn't be there to cheer you on.
One day someone should really video-record a bunch of Handball, Dodgeball, etc activities that the Flock Hall gets into. THEN it could be edited into a fan-tastic set of clips.
The more I think about it... This "Clip-Show" is something i'd really love to see.

When someone pulls off an amazing feat in handball, dodgeball, volleyball, boomerangs, etc., we frequently joke about "that's one for the highlights reel!" Maybe there is an actual call for some clips of our physical prowess. G-Fresh owns a digital video camera...

Mandy said...

I love how the descriptions make the Flock sound like it's comprised entirely of athletes.

Mucho congrats on dodging those balls!

(That's something I never thought I'd say to this crowd.)

His Sinfulness said...

Mandy,
We ARE all athletes! (sex is a sport, right?)

Nerdygirl said...

Congrats to the Flock Dodgers!

Do we get to break Modig by explaning "sport fucking" for 20 comments now? ;)

His Sinfulness said...

Modig's sensitive heart be damned! Sport Fucking is a venerable tradition with a long and illustrious history, and I'll not hear otherwise! The proud Sport Fuckers among us will certainly feel the same, right?

Mandy said...

I think that deserves an amen!

Squid said...

Oh dear....chaos is bound to ensure now.

But we won!! Great job guys! *sniffs* I'm proud of my team, it just makes me all teary-eyed. Troy and Maggie would be proud, that we pulled out a win. Oh and Linus don't forget the amazing catches Tara had!

Nerdygirl said...

Do we have "proud" Sport Fuckers? I always thought that was game of shame and secrecy, with the objective of racking up the honeys but never letting the dolts at the watercooler know...

Modig_Bjorn said...

Britt, good call! Tara was the MVP for at least one of those games.

Linus & Nerdy, I am running away with my fingers in my ears while shouting so that I may avoid learning anything more about sport fucking.

*runs away before soul is corrupted*

Big Gay Jim said...

Mmm....souls are tasty

His Sinfulness said...

As for pride among sport fuckers, I say it is a matter of style. Some like to be the surreptitious sneaky sport fucker. Others - like myself - never made any bones about the sporting nature of my pursuit of the opposite sex. If some are not comfortable with that, all I can say is "hate the game baby, not the playa."

Flynn said...

It's true, the boys in the flock don't seem to be too shy about that sort of thing. Hell, if you look hard enough I think you can find rookie cards for most of us...

Big Gay Jim said...

Wha?! And just what would be ON those rookie cards, Flynn? I might have just found my first reason to get an ebay account... ;)

His Sinfulness said...

I'm imagining a glossy picture of the "player" on the front, and a table filled with vital stats on the back - you know, measurable things, like... circumference.

Mandy said...

Neat. Like trading cards? Can someone collect an entire set of Flock rookies?

Mayren said...

wtf (what the flynn)

I leave for two minutes and *poof* there are now votes for the MVP of Sport Fuckers.

*le sigh*

Next thing you know you'll add Harry Potter's Wang onto one of the Flock Rookie cards and put them up on the blackvatican.com site as swag.

Who is the Flock's MVP anyway... ya know self-sport doesn't count.

WNG said...

Just how much would a complete set be? And how would we know the stats were accurate? I mean, don't you need a fact checker?

His Sinfulness said...

Are you volunteering, WNG? :)

Mayren said...

**Shameless Promotion**

WNG for Fact Checker....
She's a girl, Cute, and qualified.
