Welcome to the forum Vertigo. Sunday was a great turnout, and bar action was rivaling that of our end of season party. After this weeks practice games, here are my predicitions for the final standings. Enjoy and let the trash talking begin.
1st place - Morningwood: you will recognize these clowns everywhere you go by the eye black out and team cheer which will have your ears bleeding by the end of the night. The second place finishers from last season held try-outs this year and are gunning for the top spot. With the talent and dedication I give them the championship this go around and an invite to Vegas!
2nd place - Podyatrists: My own team will probably rap me in the mouth for this one, but these kickball rookies looked pretty decent on Sunday. They have a big man slightly resembling Mr.Clean from Nothern Va who knows what competitive kickball is all about. I am looking for big things from these guys.
3rd place - Sleezy Bandeezy: The resident league powerhouse gives up the top spot this season ending a current 22 game winning streak, which consequently is over if you count yesterday's practice game. Sleezy has two different styles they can bring to the field, and depending which one shows will dictae the result. Opponents better hope a few of the key Sleezy players are hammered.
4th place - Playground Bullies: I think this team will surprise a lot of people this season. Another returning team from last season, they made a good run in last years tournament almost pulling out a win over Morningwood. They are a good team with great organization, but I don't think it will be enough?
5th place - Sunkiss our Balls: Cat is going to chew me out for this ranking. This team has great fundamentals and the returning talent from last year will make it tough for a lot of teams to compete. Unfortuantely for these misfits, they are typically too "relaxed" to be sharp enough to take out the better half of the league. They finish mid pack.
6th place - I am McLovin: Another newcomer to the dance this season. Black has been the color of bad luck in this division so I expect that trend to continue. A few wins here and there but the curse keeps the team with the greatest name in the division out of contention
7th place - Menace to Sobrietty: They stole their name from my autobiography, so I am hoping they can live up to it and arrive each week tripping over themselves. I am going to go out on a limb here and predict they have the greatest bar presence week in and week out.
8th place - The Bagpipers: I like the color, but thats all I got. We will see where they fall after a few weeks.
9th place - Dunkaroos: I remember these cookies and frosty goodness from middle school. If they can put away kickers as fast as I could burn through a box of these things, then I will have poorly misjudged these guys and gals.
10th place - Dog Balls: At first I thought coming up with predictions would be fun, but i forgot how many teams we had this year and I am losing creativity and patience quickly. Dog Balls come in tenth, but may turn out to be the Cinderalla story of Vertigo.
11th place - SF Natives: This team looks like it has potential but there seemed to be some lack of confidence in their skills from what I overheard at the bar. I suggest some scouting for strategy and see if you can put it to use.
12th place - Everlasting Gobstoppers: someone had to round out the bottom, and since I really know nothing of this team other than name and color and flip cup skills...they had the honor. Prove me wrong Gobstoppers and show us your everlasting skill.
