Dogtown Div Leadership
Got something to say? If you have a comment about something you've read here, or if you'd like to contribute something of your own, please let us know! Have a personal kickball anecdote, a question, or a comment about last week's game? We want to hear from you. You can drop us a line anytime.
By Vincent Muscatelli, Dan "Ride ‘em Cowboy" Cooley, Helmut Krankenhose, and Pickbot 3000 (2.3)
Vincent- Welcome to another round of Roundtable Picks with Vincent "I said donít call me Wop" Muscatelli. Last week our table of experts batted .500 on picks and whatís more last week saw some pretty exciting play on the diamond.
Dan "Ride 'em Cowboy" Cooley is back to give us some more picks. Gentleman Jim couldnít make it this week so in his place Iíve got Helmut Krankenhose, and rounding things out is Pickbot 3000. My nephew is one of them computer geeks and said that he needed to add some new software to Pickbot so itís now Pickbot 3000 version 2.3.
Game One: Ace of Base @ Westside Whackers
Vincent:I donít think there is a question on this one. Ace of Base had a bye last week but no amount of rest is going to stop the hurt that Carey Meltonís Whackers want to put on them. After their narrow loss to the Cheerleaders in week one Melton has to come out kicking, if he knows whatís good for him. I say Whackers. WHACKERS
Helmut: Helmut glaubt, das Westside Whackers bis zur Herausforderung des Besiegens des faulen Mannschaft Asses der Unterseite sind. Hat das Spielen nicht fur eine Woche sie Weiche und schwach gebildet. Mannschaft des Herrn Meltons ist mehr als fahig zum Zerstoren der Hoffnungen und der Traume des Asses der Unterseite. Ich wahle WESTSIDE WHACKERS.
Dan: What did this boy just say? Did he pick the whackers? What the hell kind of language is that anyway? Well sheeeooot I like what Vinny had to say about them Whackers. Iím gonna say the Whackers can win this one easy, with one arm tied behind their backs and a bronco bucking beneath ëem.
Pickbot 3000 version 2.3: <virus detected>........<eliminating>.......<processing data>.......FINAL SPREAD: WHACKERS -4.
Game Two: Greenorrhea a.k.a. $&#^% @ Pregnant Cheerleaders
Vincent: I like the Cheerleaders in this one. Pat Sattler and squad showed me something special last week by shutting down an explosive offense when they had to. Greenorrhea or $&#^% (the team formerly known as Team 5) are shaky at best. I know I said they didnít have a name and it made them dangerous but a guy can be wrong. CHEERLEADERS
Helmut: Die schwangeren Cheerleadern sind eine starke Mannschaft. Sie lassen mein Herz mit Stolz schwimmen. Sie aufzupassen, auffangen zu nehmen ist eine Ehre fur irgendwie Deutschen. Wahrend Greenorrhea nichts mehr als ist, eine Mischung von amatuers, die um Grosse sich bemuhen. Aber sie finden nicht Grosse auf dem kickball aufzufangen, nicht gegen die schwangeren Cheerleadern. Kein finden sie nur Niederlage und Erniedrigung. CHEERLEADERS
Dan: Are you kidding me? Vinny does this guy have a cold or something? What in tarnation is he talking about? When you know let me know okay cause that boy ainít right. Grossa? What the heck? I think the Cheerleaders can whoop Greenorrhea, hell I licked it with some of Old Doc Brownís tonic. It also cures baldness and whatever else what ails ya. CHEERLEADERS
Pickbot 3000 version 2.3: <processing>....FINAL SPREAD: PREGNANT CHEERLEADERS -3

In case you weren’t able to make the game (Ace of Base, where were YOU???), we asked our team captains to give us little recaps of last week’s games. Below you’ll find comments straight from the horses’ … er, mouth. If you’d like to send us your own version of how a game went down, you can write us here.

Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Folks, I've found better questions in my litter box than what you've sent me this week. Honestly, I'm here to help, but mostly I'm here to meet my community service requirements so I can get this damn collar off my leg. In the meantime, keep those cards and letters coming in
Something to think about for next week: why aren't women chastised for using the wussy man bunt?

A. Dear Chris,
The Hunt Is Still On For A Division Bar. . .
Well, the early select didn't pan out. Division leadership is still hunting for that perfect division bar. The thing that helps us the most, however, is a uniform front arriving at the bar's doorstep on Thursday night. So until a bar signs on, our standard operating procedure from here on out is to name a place and we'll all meet there after the games on Thursday. This week's unwitting host is Yankee Doodle's on 3rd St Promenade @ Santa Monica Blvd. It's a large place with pool tables and good eats. It'll almost be like already having a drink special in place, too! Their Thursday special is 2 for 1 pints!
So support our division bar efforts and head for Yankee Doodles! There's ample parking in the area in any of the garages for $3 and coffee and shopping is close at hand. T-shirts will be on the field this week, so be sure to put them on before heading into the bar so they know when you pay your tab that that dollar amount will be coming from a WAKA kickballer every Thursday night!
See you there!
Registration for Dogtown Division is open!
That's right! Registration is open and we're waiting for you! Head on over to My WAKA and sign up. If you have never registered with WAKA before, you'll have to create a new user account. If you've played in any division before, just use your old login. Remember, however, you will not be officially registered until you have paid for it. If you create an account and don't pay for it, you'll get emails and have access to some info, but you CANNOT play in regular division games.
So join an existing group to play with people you know and get placed on the same team, or sign up as an individual and get placed on the team that needs people most. You can also create your own group or team! If you're creating your own team, be ready to accept captain responsibilities and to fill out your own team with 15-26 players before registration is up.
You can help promote the league!
Now that you're signed up and ready for some kickball, you can help us promote the new division! More teams with more people always makes for a better season. With more players, we can get a better deal through our division bar and we get more funding for parties and other division events.
Download and print this information sheet and post it around coffee shops, workplaces, apartment buildings or any other place with young adults that might be interested. (Be sure to get permission) You can also see if your company is interested in sponsoring a kick ball team of their own! If you have any questions or suggestions about promotions or would be interested in heading up our promotions department for the division, contact us!
Next Game Night: Aug 11th, 2005 @ 7:30pm
Oakwood Recreation Center - Diamond 1
bar location is still TBD
We're still looking for potential division bar locations. Factors to consider are: distance from field, size, not too crowded on game night, quality and variety of foodstuffs, friendliness to WAKA and willingness to offer good specials & discounts. If you have a place in mind, contact us!
