Kickball!

OK, so I did stop by the kickball game to fulfill my reporting duties. The Denver team was awe-inspiring. They had uniforms in (I think) the Broncos colors. Orange silk-screened shirts with a great Denver logo and blue short shorts (it was all dudes except for one lady). Dani and I discussed how we hope the tide is turning back to men wearing short shorts. I think American Apparel is helping to make this acceptable again. The ladies are down. Why should we have to show all the skin? The Denver team had a white van painted on both sides with a magnificent bobcat logo. Maybe Katy will post pictures. At one point they all piled into their van, lit off a firework,poured out of the van while a fog machine pumped out fog, and posed menacingly for pictures. The downside to this spectacle? It made us feel like Sac was lame cuz hardly enough people showed up to make up an entire team. I couldn't play because I only had a few minutes until I had to leave for dinner. I heard that Sac only scored one goal, and it was scored by a neighborhood kid who joined in. Before you think that Sac has been disgraced, let me tell you that Oakland had to forfeit from lack of players. But the Denver team were good sports and were still at the Flame as of midnight last night, so I'm sure Sac will be burned into their brains forever. I haven't been to the Flame in a while and I could not believe how strong the drinks still are. It's comical. 90% booze and 10% mixer. Viva La Flame! Also, between you and me, and I won't name names, but I would not be surprised if one or two of the Denver boys got a little bit of Saction (I just made that word up), so that's something else for them to take with them back to the mile high city. This is all unsubstantiated rumor, but you expect nothing less from Heckasac.

these guys were really good at kickball and they totally claubered us. but, they were really sweet about the fact that we were an unathletic group of underachievers who, for the most part, hadn't played a game of kickball all season. when D'Andre (our 5 year old star pitcher) came up to bat, the D-team let loose a comedic show of clown-like follies and let him round all the bases. one point for Sac, 10 million for Denver.

I made them do a human pyramid after the game was over cause I was feeling bad about myself for being such a loser at the sport of kickball! wouldn't you know, they threw together the pyramid effortlessly. Katy and I agreed that at this point in the evening, the only thing we were going to excel at was porky pigging. But, no one dropped their pants.

All in all, however, it was a fun game. Especially when the B street theater crowd started rooting for Denver instead of Sac. The Denver boys liked Jimboys and weren't totally fucked off for getting stopped on J street with open beer cans by some undercover cops. I felt really bad for them when that happened. I have heard no reports of Saction but we told the dudes that were they to come spend a week in town and hit Lipstick, they would not be going home alone. BTW, apparently there is a Streets of London pub in Denver and a dance club called "Lip Gloss". Sister cities!!!

No Saction? You ladies let me down. Those boys were seriously easy on the eyes.

alice said...

yeah. kinda sad, isn't it?

being the contrary fucker I am let me say this, unless your name is Dillion Lenenbacher short shorts are not ok. Plus, I thougth they were on the way out not the way in. I don't mean slightly short shorts I mean ball revealing, emasculating, riding my ten speed cuz the eighties are in or at least thats what I heard at le' fun.

Old Lady Head strikes again.

i don't think these shorts were quite that bad. but, vann jr. did hike them up his ass crack at the end of the game giving us all full viewing of his cheeks. that was a bit much.

We sent Vann, Jr. to Parrot Friday at Beers, I hope the world doesn't explode in some scientific space time thing that would happen if you get too many Vanns in the same place at the same time. Or if that happens, I at least hope Raffles gets out alive.

There are a lot of Vanns though, it seems like I can go anywhere without running into another one.

g bomb

possible Saction.

most everyone left when the night was still young.

beckler said...

Wait, are you saying there was or wasn't? You can tell me, it will just be between us.

alice said...

anything involving hot, denver kickball dudes needs to be heard by all attendees of last night's game. fans included.

katymonster said...

sorry, i'm neither confirming nor denying Saction last night. (my god Beckler, that word is brilliant!!!)

but really ladies, you should have stuck around.

Denveronians could teach Sacto-men a thing or two. about being gentlemen that is.

and yes, i'm responding to your post on a Friday night. i'm worn out from yesterday. we may not have beat them in kickball, but we certainly gave them a run for their money when it came to drinking.
