    ...and protection for the family jewels.
    From most pickups I have played in, shoulder pads have been the only option for players.

    Either way, I could care less about lopsided teams, it's not league and we are all there for a good time. Win, lose, or draw its well worth the drive from palmdale just to get out there.

    Looking forward to sunday.
    I agree with most of this.

    However, I'm gonna assume most people who like playing are somewhat competitive (i know I am). While the score certainly isn't the most important thing here, a blowout sucks, for both sides.

    it's less fun to win 10-1, no fun losing 10-1,. I'd like to see tweaking, as we've always done, if it looks like it'll be that way.

    Knowing the core is important, because we can move them (Muddy, Anon, etc) if needed.


    In the past, we've divided up these guys, then drew sticks. Lately we've been picking sticks then switching in the locker room if we found the teams to be too lopsided (or if someone is offered vodka and they're a dirty, dirty traitor), which is pretty much the same thing.
    We tweak as needed, during the game, and a good time is had by all. Perfect, no. But it works.

    Just my 2 cents.



    HG, my lewd comments brought you attention. There is no bad publicity. And what do you expect when you hire the Harmon Brass Balls award winner?

    I agree 100% with this.

    While im not going to be upset about a lopsided team, it obviously is more fun to have the teams as even and competitive as possible.

    The tweaking system works pretty well, but im pretty sure this time around we SHOULD be able to get things close off the bat.

    Looking forward to tomorrow.

    Its looking like I will not be able to make it tomorrow...unfortunatley the little lady and I are going through some rough waters and I am taking her out of town for tonight and tomorrow...

    Sorry guys, I hate to be the last minute drop out guy, hopefully there is someone who can fill in my spot. I really wanted to play but life happens...next time.

    Hope everyone had a great holiday and have a great time at the game.

    I'll be bringing a bag of goodies to unload.

    Skates, gloves, shins, helmets, etc.

    Not being Santa here as the stuff's not mine to give away.

    Check the stuff out, lemme know what you think it's worth to you, toss me some cash and we'll get it done.
