Is There A Gluten Free Option?

This little game just keeps getting weirder and weirder. Big turnout, swapping players, lending equipment and now some cool dude in a van shows up with 20 pizzas. OMG, it’s the wackiest “game” we’ve ever seen.

This will be fun for the spectators. They can watch these kids eat. (I think that’s what’s missing in spectator sports today, meal breaks for the competitors.) I hope they have some tables and chairs. Some plates and napkins would be good too. If not hey can just spread twenty pizza boxes in the infield dirt and the teams can stand around eating pizza to the delight of the crowd.


  1. Yeah. It’s weird, alright….All that’s missing is some amaaazing sloppy joes. And who the fuck shelled out 200$ or so for all these pizzas? Gil probably did, since him and Mimi have been DINKs for several years, now that their kids and dog are gone, and they have $$ to throw around. The sun seekers, special kid, and lady in the Spy vs Spy getup left a long time ago, after they kept calling one dumb timeout after another to the basketball ref behind the plate.

  2. This is getting more fun at least, pizza is fun even when it is cheap stuff that can be ordered by the 20s. So, when does Herk the Mauler show up and wrestle a kangaroo?

  3. I’m reminded of the Pizza by Alfredo episode on The Office. Pizza by Alfredo was bad, cheap pizza that Michael ordered. I think the better pizza was Alfredo’s Pizza Cafe. If Gil ordered the pizza it’s gotta be Pizza by Alfredo. Hold ‘em hostage boyyyyyyyyyyyy!

  4. P 4, Ump to players: “…later dudes…., I’m only being paid to be here for 2 hours, which is just about now…”

  5. Plot that becomes more absurd by the day. Let’s start the two a days early.

  6. I was watching the tape of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, and my favorite part is Vin Scully’s call of the 4th inning pizza break.

  7. Really!? WHAT THE HELL KINDA GAME IS THIS? What if the score was close? And why 20 pizza’s? You figure there cant be more then 20 kids here. Thats a lot of pizza even for this group, huh? And its the umpires game- a player or manager cant call time out like that. The ump is in charge of the game. If he says play ball you play ball. Rude isnt the word for this.

  8. And are we going to have a smoke break at the 7th inning stretch?
    As Rob mentioned, you just don’t tell the ump it’s our party-ballgame and we’ll eat when we want to. You would cry too if this silly plot happened to you.

    “Time, Blue. We gotta get the catering truck across the field. Does that count as a trip to the mound?”

  9. This reminds me of my college newspaper’s softball game when we had a keg at home plate and a keg at second base and the pitchers could call time for smoke breaks…

    And as others have mentioned, I don’t know where a bunch of reprobates, punks, vandals, shoplifters, mall arcade shakedown artists, budding arsonists, teen moms and other assorted rebels without causes from the other side of the tracks got money for all this stuff…

    Two softball umpires: $60 each
    Softball field rental: about $100
    Custom T-shirts: another $100
    Twenty pizzas: $200+
