I'M ONLY IN IT FOR THE FOOD

I have a dodgeball game tonight. Yeah, I'm a dodgeball league. Our team is a bunch of us from work and some of our friends and we pretty much suck worse than any team in the history of dodgeball but it's a fun Thursday night tradition and it helps release some of the tension that's built up throughout the week.

Last season we had no wins and 9 losses. This season we're 1-1 (in our first game, we won by default because the other team didn't show up). Here are some pics of last year's squad. Yes, the scoreboard says 35-0. That was the final score of our last game.

The best part about being in a dodgeball league are the post-game beers and wings at Gilligans. Every Thursday after our 7 pm or 8 pm games. Pitchers, wings and sometimes a burger followed by more pitchers. We've tried doing the Gilligans thing BEFORE our 9 pm games, but that didn't work out too well.

Tonight's opponent calls themselves the Moose Knuckles. For those not familiar with the term, feel free to click on the name. They're the most arrogant douche bags in the entire league, but we love playing them. They've got a guy on their team who is either half drunk and/or 'roid raging. We call him O'Doyle. Just like in Billy Madison. We like to taunt him. Let's just hope we never run into him at Gilligans after the game.

What is your team name? I suggest "Team McLovin" like the guys from Denny's.

Ours is the Pavone Bulldogs. Pavone is the name of our agency and our office dog is a bulldog...yeah, we didn't really put much thought into the name but it's the name we use for all of our office sports teams.
