Catch of the Week
James Salgado, Charm Reyes, & Jon Reyes
Coming Soon To a “Batter’s Box” Near You Every team will be offered a space every edition of the Newsletter to submit something funny... write about their game... whatever...and since we’re doing a newsletter every Tuesday of every week, you have plenty of time to come up with something! If your team doesn’t submit anything, and isn’t in the newsletter, talk to your captain!
Ideas for Team Submissions Then email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
When I say, submit something for your team, here are some ideas: • Play by plays of the game • Document the debauchery at the bar - i.e. describing someone’s amazing acting skills hobbling across the bar with a “sprained ankle” just to Ice a teammate. ] • Draw pictures!!!!! • Favorite quotes, poems, song lyrics, movie scripts, YouTube video, or motivational speeches! • Email chains from the morning after . • Funny pictures of you, your team, or something random on the internet • Give your team member awards - drunkest, loudest, person with the least shame, best off the face catch, etc.! • Anything. Really. Someone on your team is creative.
Submissions are due EVERY Tuesday by 7 p.m. ** If you need extra time, email me and just let me know.
Double Pitcher Contests
Backyard Sports Club’s email is: email@example.com. I look forward to working with all of you! DISCLAIMER: if you have problems with keeping your language in check, not bashing refs, being overly nasty to other teams, and other no-no’s, the Editor does have the right to not include your write up in the newsletter if the content is deemed inappropriate or out of line. We will try to screen write ups as they are received, will try to let teams know so that they have time to resubmit, but there is no guarantee. The easiest thing to do is to keep it clean, be nice, and remember this is all in good fun.

The weekly catch Brought to you by Amy Dail
Chris Snyder â€“ holey balls in your mouth Hey ladies, are ya'll looking for a scrub? Well if so, Chris Snyder is not for you, but if you're looking for a guy who WEARS scrubs, then look no further! Not only does he know a lot about high-tech medical equipment, but he's the guy in the surgery who tells the doctors how to use it! When he isn't playing doctor, he spends time helping out his family, being an awesome uncle to an adorable nephew, repping UVA, and hanging at his house in Chix Beach. He recently volunteered at a Bingo AIDS benefit - he supports good causes, ya'll! While he doesn't discriminate on quality food, he has an overwhelming passion for not-so-fine dining. If you're in the mood for mediocre food from a dumpy, hole-in-the-wall Asian buffet, Chris is your man! He knows where the most dark and sinister ones are, but be sure to bring some Pepto with you! He also enjoys karaoke at the Reef on Shore Drive. Lets just say he's not auditioning for American Idol any time soon, but his rendition of the 1986 classic, "Danger Zone" is one to remember! On a more serious note, Chris is one of the most responsible, supportive and kind-hearted guys I know - always putting his family and friends first! (Don't be surprised if he offers to drive and you end up driving him home in his car every now and then, though.) He's a great listener...I mean how many guys do you know who are great listeners?! He's not shy, so go introduce yourselves - you'll know you've made a connection if he starts calling you by your first AND last name!

Congrats to Sons of Pitches Congrats for your 2nd consecutive win guys! Next season we will be testing for steroids, so beware.
Do My Eyes Deceive Me? I know this may look like a picture of James and Joe, but what I’m really looking at is the people in the background. Johnny Kasiski DOES have a GF! She’s not just a figment of his imagination. He said his GF was at the fields watching him play, but she was nowhere to be found. Alas, she showed up at the bar, so she does exist. Sorry Johnny, we just have trust issues on our team…we don’t believe it till we see it.
Poetry for your Soul Danced in the outfield For the common Thursday, cured! Unos apps say “yum.” No goodbyes for us Clown Babies have feelings too Thank you, Backyard Sports
Oh wiff, I love thee Swinging bats, seasonal beer Seasons change – Dodgeball! By Brannon Smith
Captain America So I couldn’t think of any love matches made this season, but I do know a guy that all the girls AND guys love! Brett Craun, little do you know, maybe you do, but I think everyone in this league has a crush on you. I’ve had people say “if I wasn’t married,” or “if I didn’t have a boyfriend” or “if I weren’t straight” ……man woman, married, swingers…hell, even my fiancé wants you! I think I might have to kick you out of this league and forbid Robbie from seeing you if you insist on making passes at him! I do have to admit, you would be hard to compete with.
Lady Crush Girl crush update: Caroline Stolle Gorham, you’ve got some major competition. Christy from Wiffskey Milita has stepped into the scene. I don’t know if this girl was born with her WOOTY (white girl booty) or if she does a million squats a day. My team can attest for this, but when she walks by, I can’t help but stare and make a comment about her wooty! I just can’t help myself! And you see those fingers in the picture right by her wooty…yea those are mine…and yes I know ...i’m a creeper! Wiffskey Militia can breed a really hot baby! Take Jessica’s eyes, Marcus’ bottom lip, and Christy’s booty, that’s a beautiful baby!
These are the faces of people who are angry that the season is over
On another noteâ€Ś.are Matt and Marc holding hands? Maryann, you better keep an eye out!
