another battle with our friends at public assistance. this was as close a game as one can get with PA scoring a run every other inning to slowly build a 3 - 0 lead after 5 innings...luckily we finally realized the urgency plating 3 in the sixth and two in the seventh to wrap up a victory for the good guys and sent marsha to mainland as a winner.
....probably the most badass team to hit the league (since we joined)
"out of your league" fielded an unconventional lineup with choke wahine and a few token guys - they were rolling about 15 deep on the ladies with 3 dudes. scoreless through 2 innings until a little wa'ahila decided to show up and chuck delayed the game so he could stand under the umbrella and made everyone leave the field - about 30 seconds later all the wahine took the field in the rain waiting for chuck to call game on - badass.
Luckily our bats came alive and our (almost) all-Lisa infield were even more badass and we were able to coast to the bleachers with a victory...and for those scoring at home Na Pahu Piha has won 7 out of its last 8
1. Thou shalt have no other priorities before softball (eh, unless its something good)
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images of Chuck (unless he deserves it) 3. Thou shalt not take thy ump Chuck's name in vain (unless he deserves it) 4. Remember the softball day, keep it holy
5. Honor thy coach and ass coach, email lest one play or not play and try pay dues
6. Thou shalt not kill a good inning by hitting a foul ball over the fence 7. Thou shalt not leave Na Pahu for another team in our league 8. Wahine shalt not take a free walk 9. Thou shalt not tell Chuck you will go see his band play when you know you aren't 10. Thou shalt not covet the other teams bats
Na Pahu finally got to get back on the field...and despite the months of rain we didn't show too much rust. Early on Na Pahu was coasting with a 5-1 lead and with only 9 players Scared Pitchless was stuck with an automatic out at the end of the lineup. things were looking good.
unfortunately...april fools suckas...we slid into auto-pilot...fell in love with the popfly...made a few silly errors and sure enough we found ourselves in a tight spot...down 5 going into our last at bat
however, in true na pahu fashion we stormed back with the winning run at the plate only to come up a few runs short - wasn't meant to be...good showing nonetheless and it felt good to get some softball action.
Na Pahu gave her best division one impression - holding a lead on Niele for the first four innings, stumblin' for a couple and ultimately storming back with 8 in the last at-bat to end up with a hard-fought tie. Good momentum for the playoffs.
been a wild year and we going out with a bang - earthquakes in Iran and Japan - torrential floods in California (and a bit of rain here too, eh?) - the moon running blood - blizzards despite global warming - tea party shenanigans...is the world coming to an end?...depends who you ask. i'm sure many of our newly-elected washington folks are rootin' for the rapture.
but unfortunately, we can safely say that Na Pahu Piha softball in 2010 is over - and i'd say 'twas not a bad one...we won 10 games, nearly swept the division 2 championship for the year, and didn't have to forfeit a game
