The crackmonkeys ended the regular season with an eventful two weeks. We played a heated, but well-played game hungover (see below) to win our 7/12 game. Some teams play well under stress and a good hangover, others don't. We do. Motion for monkey post-game drinking to be moved to monkey pre-game drinking starting saturday night. In our last game of the season (7/19) we faced a tough team that hit all the right places along with some great defensive plays. Some highlights below....
1. Completion of the "World Famous First Annual Chocolate Thunder All-Star Invitational Mid-Summer Classic, Charity Bar Crawl" - good times were had by all - including those around the world that received loving keepsake messages from Mr. Mike Cation. On Saturday July 11th the crackmonkeys invaded bars across the champaign-urbana area, including notables campus favorite Kam's, wet 'n wild day at Station, a pair of blind pigs, and a finale at C street. Time to start training for next year!
2. First ever crackmonkey ejection (see previous post for details). Hopefully first and last!
3. Four pitchers in one game...and a win.
4. Great hitting all around. Girls are forcing the outfield to recognize, and guys are hitting the gaps to get runs in. Great D in the outfield both weeks: Tony, little-D (that's official right?), Cation, Jamie, Voss, Glenn, D, and Webbie. Great pickups at first base by D. Second base matrix moves by Bav. Short-stop looks easy monkeystyle by Jamie, Scot, Cation, and Voss. Great job by Michelle to stay calm and keep game up during all the pitching drama. And holding down the hot corner Glenn, Micki, and Jamie.
