*Boom*Boom*POW*

Last night marked the first two games of our second kickball season. We lost a few players this time around [Oh how we shall miss you, Jennifer!] and we gained three new peeps [Welcome Stephanie, Kit and Brandon!].

Our team name: Balls to the Wall. Everyone has a cute name that has to do with Balls and I just have a cute name in general: Snappyberrie. Berries are technically balls...of sweet yummy goodness, but according to the team, it isn't dirty enough. But I'm not a dirtygirl, so I will stay sweet and innocent with Snappyberrie! heh heh.

Back from my tangent...we lost our first game last night by one run due to a bad call on the ump's part--but that was the first time our entire team had gotten together and played [plus SOMEONE didn't know a leading off rule that totally would have scored us another run!]...so that was our warm up game.

We dominated the other team during the second game--actually, we run-ruled them in the fifth inning [Boom Boom Pow!]. It was great, although we had to stop the game early because of it. We were run-ruled at least one time last season and it wasn't the best feeling ever...so it's nice to be on this side of the equation!

Here's a snapshot of the shirt I will be wearing every Tuesday night for our games [unless we get cute little tanks which were discussed and therefore will post at a later date because I know the excitement of it all is overwhelming!]. Yes, this picture is recycled from last October, but I didn't take any pictures last night...bad, Lopez!!!

Gasp! They do not have kickball in the UK?!?!

Kickball is like baseball with a big, red, rubber ball instead of a bat and ball.
It's a game that we [Americans, I guess] played in grade school...I'm talking 2nd, 3rd grade!

Jennifer said...

Yeah Balls to the Wall! Great job team! I am missing you all as well. Keep up the fantastic play!

Eric said...

Lopez said...

[Whoops, not sure what happened there...]

All I ever wanted out of life was to be part of a kickball league... and you haven't even thought of me?

I played this game each recess as an elementary school girl only to fly-out every single *up* to Caron Butler... now an NBA Basketball player... "one of these days, Caron, I will kick one past YOU!"

If you ever want to spend another day a week in the fabulous presence of the Saryfairy ~ by all means, please let her know.

You have it all, man... book clubs, kickball leagues, kids, sweet-a** blog nominations...

Love the team name too BTW... we started a new stability ball class at my fitness club and we almost went with that or Got Balls? Went with Balls Out.

I know about the snappy but where did the berrie come from?

I'm fighting the urge to make a number of "Balls To The Wall" jokes. Successfully, thank goodness.

So it's basically rounders crossed with football, then?!

Girl Interrupted said...

Ooooh! ... I think we know it as Softball

I could be wrong though lol ... we don't play any of them much, Rounders is the closest we get to it

Lopez, do you guys have a winning record in kickball yet? Don't forget us when you all get signed to the big leagues...
