Mama Knows Best

I'm sorry Mother Nature. I've learned my lesson a few blogs ago when I dissed Mama Nature http://softballinsider.blogspot.com/2009/10/sb-blueprint.html. I should have known better from those old school 70's commercials
that it is not nice to fool with Mother Nature and she let me know it by answering back with more rain outs. Never again Ma. Never again. As Tupac so eloquently sang
"You are appreciated"
Please forgive your prodigal softball sons at http://citysoftball.wordpress.com/ and let us forge ahead and complete the season this Sunday. We will be humbly checking
all week in hopes you grant us forgiveness.
Speaking of this Sunday, "all good things must come to an end (maybe Inwood will end??)", and in a effort to bring the season to a fair conculsion we have taken a que from the Great Heath Ledger's Joker character http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfmkRi_tr9c and injected a little softball anarchy into the Championship.
The championship Schedule is as follows:
The Semi-Finals will consist of one 9-inning elimination game starting at 9:30 am.
Westlanders (4) vs Trojans (1), Field 3, 9:30am
Knockout (3) vs Bonao (2) , Field 2 , 9:30am
The winners will immediately proceed to a best of 3 championship series. The higher seed chooses the field and is home game 1st and 3rd game.
Not exactly normal and "according to plan", but the potential for drama and excitement is very much there if you choose to embrace this final Sunday.
As a final note, this decision was not easy, but when considering the time of year, permits, weather, field conditions, maintaining the quality of play, and competitive fairness to our customers it was in out best judgement that this decision was fair to all teams involved. Good Luck to All


  1. Is is true they gave JB an extra plate of chicken at the Big Apple awards dinner? I am so sick of this shit.

  2. I'm sorry then it is OK. Jack can have extra chicken because he is not supposed to eat ribs.
