As promised, I wanted to send out an email to everyone regarding alcohol.
Again, I'd ask that, this week, everyone refrain from bringing any sort of alcohol to the field, be it mixed, jello-d or hidden in a paper bag. I asked and, even bringing Solo cups to the field that aren't filled with alcohol is banned as it was ubiquitous red cups that led to another league having their permits pulled when suspicious neighbors called the cops and parks department to complain.
Tippi did say that people might be able to bring stuff mixed in store-bought bottles, but maybe we'll consider that for future weeks. For the time being: NO booze on the fields, plzkthx!
In other news...
Predictably, Tippi's been less than sympathetic to concerns regarding Harvard's commencement, falling to her well-worn excuse: "We've played on Commencement before and it wasn't a problem."
So, while it's infuriating, it may also be moot as the weather gauge is dropping and we may be rained out, anyway.
If that's the case, Tippi's promised to call all the captains by 4 pm on Thursday so that we can let our players know before they head for the fields.
If, for some reason, you don't think an email sent out around 4 in the afternoon will be in time to keep you from heading out to the field, lemme know and I'll call/text you (If I don't already have your number, lemme know that, as well).
All right, on these downer notes, let's get pumped for Thursday! I heard that Where My Pitches At hate freedom and all drive Hummer3s. They're fans of the Yankees' AAA baseball team the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, but only because they like the hats. They know only two facts about ducks and both of them are wrong. They fill their kickballs with pure carbon dioxide and then, when they kick, try to pop the balls so that they can contribute to global warming because they think it means they won't have to wear the lovely knit sweater their aunt gave them at Christmas/Hanukkah... which they don't celebrate!!!
Let's get these jerks!
