Contact Kickball

The Cooters lost our final kickball game this season, which put us in fourth place. Out of six. And for some as-of-yet unexplained reason, T-Bone and Bad Apples conspired with a willing videographer and decided it would make good TV to tackle me in the middle of the game while I was out protecting left field (a job I take very seriously).

You can watch the video of it here (3.8MB WMV), although it's kinda far away and mostly just funny because you can pinpoint the exact moment where my mind goes from "Why are those guys running at me?" to "Oh, I better take some evasive action."

Or if you can't view WMVs, you can always download the MPEG (4MB). Or, if you aren't into motion pictures, there are of course lots of static shots of the game.

It is difficult to protect left field while being tackled, but it's more difficult to protect left field while standing in RIGHT FIELD!

Hahahaha...I just wish there were little popup bubbles to show what each participant was thinking...

Evil Cooter Friends- "muahahaha! we will tackle Dan to the joy and amusment of all! muahahaha!"

Dan- "ahh...what a pretty evening it is...and here with my frie...wait, what are they there a bee? what...ohhh my god, RUN, feet!"

How incredibly un-fair. T-bone is huge and Bad Apples is totally hard core. If you had to get tackled by two guys though, you could do a lot worse...

Dood. Are you wearing shorts???

Finally, after all these years of reading your blog, we get to see Dan in action! Or inaction. Because right after the "I better take evasive actions," moment. Is the "Oh well, I give in, I'm just goinig to let them take me down," moment.

Yeah... That is definitely, definitely, right field...

Scuse me. Right field. Jebus.

OMG I don't know what was more hilarious. Dan getting attacked or the comments you all left! You are some wickedly funny people you are.

Did someone totally crimp that dog/mascot's ears, '80s style? Gnarly!

3rd attempt:
Totally unrelated question: You guys are partly from Minneapolis. Have you ever seen this?
Apparently it's from Minneapolis. Is this bad?

Btw, how do you post links in Blogger?

goerg i was going to tell you about the wonders of html code, but i'm now more curious about something...

Is that what people think texas girls are like or just the dixie chicks? Besides chevys are quite roomy...

By Blogger the other sarah, at 3:40 PM  

Hi Sarah!
I actually like the Dixie Chicks, in particular that new song of theirs, "Not ready to make nice". That's also why I found that comedy clip so terrible. (And I definitely have nothing against Texan girls or Chevies :-) )
