Kickball Champions!

I have kept the blogging about kickball to a minimum this season, but I can't hold this in:

We are the Spring 2011 WAKA Kickball Champions! 

I am so excited. Elaina and I must have said to each other 20 times last night, "we won!" Here is how it went down: 

We play 8 regular season games. We lost 1 game in the regular season to G.T.K. They were ranked #1 all season long and were undefeated. Last night we played a semifinals game at 7:20 against the #3 team. We were ranked #2. Regulation is 5 innings, and we finally won it in 8 innings. We knew we would most likely be playing G.T.K. in the finals again this year. We lost to them last year in extra innings. 

8:10 (more like 8:30) kickoff. G.T.K. vs. Mooseknuckles. They have a really good pitcher who hurls that ball at you as hard as he can. While he is a good pitcher, he is also one of the biggest jerks in the league. We started out the first inning with 3 runs, which gave us all the momentum we needed. Top of the 5th, we are up 3-1, and the heart of their lineup comes up. I was sure they would be able to score with their best players up, and they did. Tied it up. Bottom of the 5th, Mooseknuckles up. 2 runners on base, Brandon lines it up the 3rd base line and Claybrook scores.....Mooseknuckles win! 

There were no outs, so I wish we had been cool enough to keep playing and see how many runs we could score. But we were way too excited and charged the field to celebrate.

#1, baby!
