Game 2

Well, another game is in the books and although the final result was a 16-0 loss, the Blues kept their spirits high. This was due in part to an outstanding defensive performance in the last half of the game to hold SG Bank to 1 run in the last three innings. There were great catches in the outfield by Natanya and Glenn, solid fielding and throwing by the infield, and even an outfield assist from Andy “don’t-you-dare-tag-up-from-second-on-me” Fargnoli. Also helping to ease the loss was a generous gift from the umpire who allowed us to play all seven innings and gave us an extra out at the end so that we could get more batters in. We only have a couple of pics from yesterday and since there was no team photographer at the game they were both taken at the bar.

While at the bar, the topic of cinema came up and the team debated and then determined that Tim Buton directed a better Batman film than Chris Nolan, although Christian Bale played a better Batman than Michael Keaton. I found out that apparently I’m the only person who’s ever seen the movie Money Talks. We all learned that Martin has an unabashed man-crush on Michael Caine.

Our next game is Thursday at 7pm on the North Meadow in lovely Central Park. We’ll be playing “AAARRGGGHH!!!” who we faced off against last year and should be much closer to our level of competition than the last two teams.

Here's one last tip: running full speed, coming to a complete stop, catching the ball in an embarassingly awkard fashion, and then rolling on the asphalt is not recommended. If you are confused please see Dan Ozzi for a vivid reinactment.

Nice hand, Kyle.

P.S. Next time we play on a blacktop "field", if everyone could bring 1 or 2 pocketsful of dirt...
