One Evil Monkey Season has ended

Last night we had a playoff game.   If we win the first one then we play another one right after.   We were facing the 2nd best team in the division.   It was a tight game but in the bottom last inning we were down 1 run with runners at 2nd and 1st and 2 out and I came to the plate.

    Pressure was on, I hit the first pitch right up the middle. The runner scored from second and I moved up to second on an overthrow. We got stranded out there but I sent the game into extra innings! Or in this case, one extra inning. We scored 6 runs in the extra inning. When the other team came up they hit a grand slam and then got the tieing run to second before we got the 3rd out! We won!

    The sad news is that the next game we played, we got murdered. It wasn’t pretty. But winning that first game was really exciting and it felt great.

    One last hilight, my brother had 4 home runs over the course of the two games. He had 3 in the first one! He played amazing.

    Did I ever mention that Evil Monkeys is a silly name for a team?

    • Bob Says:

      The former soldier is the one who named us. Do you want to tell him that?

      Also on the subject of team names, last night we faced:

      1) The Vipers
      2) The Sunbeams

      Does our name still sound silly to you?

    • whatigotsofar Says:

      Vipers sounds much better.

      Best name should have been after a local microbrew. (The Steamwhistles or something.) Coulda tried to get one to sponsor the team. If all you get is a free case of beer, well, saves the cost of the two-four for after the game.

        Dude, I wanted to get a sponsor but the rest of the guys didn’t want to partner up with a restaurant or anything. I actually thought the best sponsor was Peek Polish. Our friday jerseys have the same colour scheme as the product.

    Wow congrats! That’s EXCITING! What a great game, right to the wire! Bummer on the second game, but great stuff. And watch out next year! 🙂

    Wow, you built that up really well! And way to go on that comeback in the extra innings! Woo!

    So sorry about the ultimate loss though. Here’s to a winning season 2!
