The gmot Issue: 4 2011 spring season Get social with the gmot Dear  Kickballers,   This  week  while  reading  blogs  at  work   (because  seriously,  who  works  at   work…obviously  not  me)  I   came  across  this:  “A  little   dancing  always  livens  a  joint   up,  whether  it’s  a  wedding   reception  hall,  a  disco-­‐ball’d   high  school  gym,  or  an   abandoned  factory  where   Kevin  Bacon  apparently   also  trained  to  be  an   Olympic-­‐level  gymnast.”   The  writer  clearly  has   never  been  to  Sandbar  while   Waka  kickballers  take  over  the  dance  floor   otherwise  he  would  have  included  that  with   the  list  of  nostalgic  times  of  getting  on  their   dancing  shoes.      Just  a  side  note,  I  just  noticed  that  all   the  amazing  links  that  are  on  previous   GMOTs  can’t  be  viewed.  I  will  try  and  figure   out  a  way  to  fix  this.  See  you  on  the  fields.     Cheers  from  your  lovely  GMOT,   Lucy

Flip Cup Standings

(The Real Reason We Come To Kickball)

Keep up the good work on the flip cup craziness after kickball. I overheard a “waka groupie” (basically a person not in uniform)…saying how they had never seen so many “serious” flip cup games going on at one time. That’s what I like to hear people.


CHRISTINA BAEZ Q: What team do you play on? A: Drunken Leprechauns

PLAYER  SPOT  LIGHT  

Q: How many seasons have you played? A: 2 Q: Do you have a nickname? A: Halloween theme night I dressed up in a kitten costume and allegedly introduced myself to people as "the pussy." There is no proof that this ever happen nor do I remember it. I'm currently consulting with my legal counsel on this slanderous matter. Q: What’s your favorite part about kickball A: Pop, lockin n' droppin it in the outfield to the booty music that's played then consequently getting yelled at by Coach Jac for not catching the ball! Q: Do you have any pregame rituals? A: Sipping on my hunch punch and ignoring the guys when they tell me to get some practice kicks in before the game. Wait, what do you consider the game?!?! The kickball game or the bar scene after? Each activity has it's own precise and demanding pregame requirements Q: What’s your favorite drink at kickball? A: Coach Jac's Everclear hunch punch with a side of my vodka gummy worms… A deadly combination that should be consumed at your own risk! Q: If you were a kickball, what would your favorite part of being a kickball be? A: Getting played with every Friday night. Q: How many random hook-ups have you had at kickball? A: A lady doesn't kiss and tell, but a kickball lady doesn't kiss and remember it the next morning. Q: Mustaches, love them or hate them? A: Hate em… I've never fantasized about time traveling to the 1970's and being raped by any members of the Village People. Q: If you could be a vegetable which one would you be and why? A: This question is just stupid. Get  to  know  people  you  play  kickball  with.  Each  week  we’ll  profile  a  kickballer,  if  you   want  the  lime  light  then  just  email  thegmot@gmail.com  and  you’ll  find  your  self  here  


Irish  Car  Bomb  Cupcakes  

While  looking  up  the  drink  of  the  week,  stumbled  upon  this  amazing  recipe:   Makes 20 to 24 cupcakes For the Guinness Chocolate Cupcakes 1 cup stout (such as Guinness) 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 cups sugar 3/4 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup sour cream Ganache Filling 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter 2 cups all purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 2 large eggs

2/3 cup heavy cream 1 to 2 teaspoons Irish whiskey (optional)

Baileys Frosting (see Recipe Notes) 3 to 4 cups confections sugar 1 stick (1/2 cup or 4 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperatue 3 to 4 tablespoons Baileys (or milk, or heavy cream, or a combination thereof) Special equipment: 1-inch round cookie cutter or an apple corer and a piping bag (though a plastic bag with the corner snipped off will also work) Make the cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 24 cupcake cups with liners. Bring 1 cup stout and 1 cup butter to simmer in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add cocoa powder and whisk until mixture is smooth. Cool slightly. Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, and 3/4 teaspoon salt in large bowl to blend. Using electric mixer, beat eggs and sour cream in another large bowl to blend. Add stout-chocolate mixture to egg mixture and beat just to combine. Add flour mixture and beat briefly on slow speed. Using rubber spatula, fold batter until completely combined. Divide batter among cupcake liners, filling them 2/3 to 3/4 of the way. Bake cake until tester inserted into center comes out clean, rotating them once front to back if your oven bakes unevenly, about 17 minutes. Cool cupcakes on a rack completely. Make the filling: Chop the chocolate and transfer it to a heatproof bowl. Heat the cream until simmering and pour it over the chocolate. Let it sit for one minute and then stir until smooth. (If this has not sufficiently melted the chocolate, you can return it to a double-boiler to gently melt what remains. 20 seconds in the microwave, watching carefully, will also work.) Add the butter and whiskey (if you’re using it) and stir until combined. Fill the cupcakes: Let the ganache cool until thick but still soft enough to be piped (the fridge will speed this along but you must stir it every 10 minutes). Meanwhile, using your 1-inch round cookie cutter or an apple corer, cut the centers out of the cooled cupcakes. You want to go most of the way down the cupcake but not cut through the bottom — aim for 2/3 of the way. A slim spoon or grapefruit knife will help you get the center out. Those are your “tasters”. Put the ganache into a piping bag with a wide tip and fill the holes in each cupcake to the top. Make the frosting: Whip the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, for several minutes. You want to get it very light and fluffy. Slowly add the powdered sugar, a few tablespoons at a time. [This is a fantastic trick I picked up while working on the cupcakes article for Martha Stewart Living; the test kitchen chefs had found that when they added the sugar slowly, quick buttercream frostings got less grainy, and tended to require less sugar to thicken them up.] When the frosting looks thick enough to spread, drizzle in the Baileys (or milk) and whip it until combined. If this has made the frosting too thin (it shouldn’t, but just in case) beat in another spoonful or two of powdered sugar. Ice and decorate the cupcakes. Do ahead: You can bake the cupcakes a week or two in advance and store them, well wrapped, in the freezer. You can also fill them before you freeze them. They also keep filled — or filled and frosted — in the fridge for a day. (Longer, they will start to get stale.)

A Little History on drinking games History

According to the trust source of Wikipedia they are games which involve the consumption of alcoholic beverages. These games vary widely in scope and complexity, although the purpose of most is to become intoxicated as quickly as possible. Evidence of the existence of drinking games dates back to antiquity. The upside of these games are the: the rapid consumption of alcohol, key to many drinking games, worsens judgment and decreases inhibition, and may lead to alcohol poisoning.

Kottabos   One of the oldest drinking games played in Ancient Greek times according to some important professor in California. Kottabos was a game of skill popular for a long time at ancient Greek and Etruscan symposia (drinking parties), especially in the 5th and 4th centuries BC. The game is played by flinging wine lees (deposits of dead yeast) at targets.

Drinking games were enjoyed in ancient China, usually incorporating the use of dice or verbal exchange jj   of riddles. During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the Chinese used a silver canister where written lots could be drawn that designated which player had to drink and specifically how much; for example, from 1, 5, 7, or 10 measures of drink that the youngest player, or the last player to join the game, or the most talkative player, or the host, or the player with the greatest alcohol tolerance, etc. had to drink.
