brew crew banter
last night anthony bonosaro, or bonar for short, led us to our first victory of the season. bonar through seven complete innings of one run ball, was 2 for 3 at the plate and brought what appeared to be the entire cast of porky’s VI along to cheer us to victory.
other highlights included:
the thwacking of two ground rule doubles, one by justin negrotti and one by pete i’talien, our short stop (the latter hit may or may not have been more valuable if i had not put the hit-and-run on the pitch before)
the other anthony, our eighteen year old left fielder, getting rung up on a bull-shit check swing call by the fattest umpire since eric gregg (i might have gotten into a rather heated “conversation” with the umpire about the validity of this call)
rooney, pope and I celebrating our victory with free bratwursts, german potato salad and sangrias at our neighbor’s bbq
pope steadfastly refusing – for the most part anyway - his inclination to fraternize during the game
tonight and tomorrow night we have two huge games against swampscott and peabody. wish us luck!
btw – applications for 2006 ball bitch are still available. let me know if you’re interested.
