Veni, Vidi, Ouchie

The sexiest team at the tourney.

Did we conquer our opponents? We did not. Did we consume many pitchers of beer? We did. Becoming the Houston Astros of the 2012 Blogger Softball Tournament did little to hide the fact that thirteen of us had a blast on Saturday and compensated for our lack of scoring with a surfeit of trash-talking.

I'll pay tribute to our illustrious team members in a later post, but a few notes first:

  • Thanks and congratulations to Mike Brown of theLFP.com for organizing such a successful event, and for a good cause to boot (see below). Plus, I think one of his teams won the tournament!
  • Thanks also to team photographers and morale boosters Mrs. Orel and Diamond for their support and good cheer! It was also great meeting some of Josh's and rbnlaw's families.
  • Dusty (DNP - barfed lung) and Paul (DNP - MIA), we missed ya! Email us your mailing address and we'll get your shirts to you.
  • Speaking of T-shirts...a few readers have asked how they can get one. Since the tournament benefited the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, how about this: we'll send a T-shirt to the first three readers who donate $20 or more to the LAFB. Just forward us your email confirmation and you can choose from size XL or L or S. (Thanks to John G for the idea!)

UPDATE: One shirt spoken for! Two gone!

More to come!

That was a great idea. Those T-shirts rule. I've already got it washed and contemplating wearing it to Opening DAY.

Great plan! I'll come down and wear mine too!

Contribution made, great idea!

That's a great idea, I love it. The LAFB needs all the support it can get.

I'll be sporting my sosg tee proudly at every dodger game this year!

After I left the tourney, I hit up some roscoes in pasadena. While I was there, a busboy stopped me. He recognized the shirt and is a reader on here and DTs! He was asking about the games and who was there, I felt like a celebrity for a second....

Dusty Baker said...

That's awesome, CVF! Roscoe's is just a few minutes away from where I live.

@Neebs, we say no to censorship!

@CVF, you're always a celeb in our hearts.

That is a crew to be proud of! You represented us well.

I said it in one thread and I will say it again. You may not have come away with the trophy but I know my team is tops at this:

I want to dry hump each and every one of you. Proud of you all!

Nice one, MB!

rbnlaw said...

Still basking in the afterglow of the day. The venue was perfect for the event, and by all indicators it was a successful day for the LAFB.

You guys definitely had the best jerseys... everyone was number 6! Great to see SOSG representing. - Owen from Fansmanship.com

Johnny Blanchard said...

No, MB, I drank it right out of the pitcher.

Johnny Blanchard said...

Oh, and we were the 2003 Tigers.

Orel said...

Thanks, Owen!
