It was a great game, and the crowd was pumped. I think that the Chronicle's fans were a little more toasted, and were therefore, more rowdy and loud. Carmadillo was in attendance, suffering from conflicting loyalties. Being featured on the cover of the Chronicle with the Cola Sisters, was giving the beast a star complex that may have led to Carmadillo's violation of its owners trust, since his wife is a Book People person.
We had two Wheatsvillians representing our clan on the Book People team. Ryan Vanstone, IT Consultant extraordinaire, and Mike Crissey, Perishables buying madman. Beers were had, and people were excited to see their friends play the softball.
At one point in the game a former member of the Book People staff streaked around the bases, sliding -- what I can, and will, assume to be painfully -- naked into home. It was great.
That's gonna leave a mark...
In the end, it was a close game, but those champions of liberal local mediocre media took the the plastic DIY trophy, barely clinching the game 11-9.
Next season we will have a proper WV team: the Sku's.
