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!)
One shirt spoken for! Two gone!
More to come!
