Clutch Victory for Thief Winos

Monday, August 10th, 2009

Thief Winos continued our undefeated season with a hard-fought 14-12 slugfest over the defending champs Blatz Bombers tonight. This one meant a lot, as Tim from the Blatz Bombers works for the MPM (as does Paul, but he’s on the DL with a dislocated shoulder from a game a few weeks ago), so bragging rights were at stake. WInd was blowing out initially and the runs were flowing; we were up 11-10 at the three inning stretch. After the (beer) break we both settled down and we were up 14-10 going into the bottom of the 6th. We let up two runs but were able to hold on. As said before, this is far too much fun!

Thief Winos Juggernaut Continues

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Thief Winos are now 5 and 0 – the only undefeated team in the Milwaukee Wiffleball League – with a 20-3 thumping of the Holey Balls last night. New pickups Matt & Jamie added some depth and pop, and overall a balanced offensive explosion.  I think one reason for our success is that we drink better beer. While other more youthful teams are swilling the Pabst Blue Ribbon, our beverage of choice last night was Bell’s Oberon Ale and Lakefront Riverwest Stein.
