The Brawlers Roll On
OK, so we didn't get a chance to put up a post about our epic 3-1 victory over rival SLAKA last week, but this week the Brawlers moved to 7-0 and strengthened their position as the team to beat in DC Kickball by coasting past Vote for Pedro with a 6-1 win. Before the game started, it was unclear whether or not we'd have enough people to bring a competitive game with us, with only 12 people, including 5 girls, expecting to show up. As it turns out, Vote for Pedro was the team undermanned, and we came out firing from the start with 4 runs put up in the 1st inning.
The game found itself in jeopardy, though, after Anthony deftly skied a foul ball to the left of the field, as the ball just barely bounced over the fence and into the hillside of shrubs below. About 15 minutes later, though, a search team emerged with what may or may not have been the original ball, and the game went on. By the end of the 3rd inning, Vote for Pedro was ready to call it quits and hit the bar, but we managed to convince them to play out one more inning before ending it.
The Blacktop Legends kept pace with the Kickbrawlers with an alleged 15-0 beatdown of Third Base or Bust, but with only 2 games to go, the Brawlers are poised for at worst a # 2 seed in the playoffs, with a # 1 seed and an undefeated regular season in their sights.
No pictures this week, because we got lazy, but we do have some video clips of some Flip Cup Death Matches (with drunken play-by-play by Anthony):
Match # 1: Sarah vs. Mukti
Match # 2: Mike vs. Matt
