FIELD NOTES, WEEK ELEVEN (cont'd)
They are playing Interpretive DanceBall, and let me tell you: the BSRmadillos are the best damn Interpretive DanceBall team that this league has.

What things come to mind when you think about the Gardener Rich? His incredible personal warmth, sunny demeanor, love for the game, etc.? Here is a truth about human nature: Nobody is all sunshine. Underneath the soft voice is a vengeful streak wider than a two-ox plow track. Nobody holds a kickball grudge like Gardener Rich. I'm not even sure he's human. He is a zephyr. The wind elemental walks among us, like Kane, with a gentle word and mad bo-staff skills.
But knee-deep as he is in this present moment, Gardener Rich can still look to the future. He has a mad-on to face the Holy Rollers again, and nothing will stand in his way. The Mississippi Shakedown are as insignificant the the Guerilla Gardeners' long game as foot fungus is to a tsunami. Maybe less. Today the Gardeners just visualized the Rollers' faces under those hot pink baseball hats, the mad-on took care of the rest.
The Guerilla Gardeners: 5
Holy Rollers v Stilettos
Hold on, I lost my notes for this one.
Providence Steamroller v
Cunning, Baffling, Powerful
tale of two choo-choos
Cunning, Baffling, Powerful is a locomotive that just keeps chugging along. They don't give a shit if you hate them or not. In case you haven't noticed, this train runs on hate.
The story of the Providence Steamroller is the The Little Engine That Could. Or couldn't -- it depends on who showed up that day. They have a big roster.
Where the tracks cross: beating CBP requires a certain amount of mechanical ruthlessness. In Week 11, you gotta be catching those fly balls.
The Steamroller did not win on this day, but they should take heart: the fossil record shows that Homo Cunnilingus Baffilus have lived in this region for at least 30,000 years. The Steamroller have been a model Freshman team, and we hope to see them back.
In the meantime, CBP chugs along to 6-0 and a Division Championship match. The last loss they suffered -- last year -- seems like forever ago. Is there a team that can beat CPB? A team with the skill or the heart? We shall see. We. Shall. See.
Cunning, Baffling, Powerful: 3
Providence Steamroller: 1
