KickballEB Thursday Summer 2013 Power Rankings: Week 1
RankTeam Trending Comments
1 N/A Was going to write about teams this week but 4 teams were on byes and I was trying to get the lights on and mildly freaking out they wouldn't turn on. Which they didn't. I blame Let's Kick It for the issue because when they showed up with the 2012 trophy everything went sideways. Well done guys
2 N/AThey were organized, had jello shots, and kept playing in the dark while those a-holes on shake & bake kept kicking balls into the moon.
3 N/Ashowed up to ref. all two of them. wait, i offered them free beer to ref. not sure why they are number 3 but too late to go back now
4 N/AThey won. Don't think that was a theme of theirs for the past few seasons. Sadly this might be their highest ranking of the season
5 N/AGreat new logo and a new season seeing how they won a game in impressive fashion. Took them all of 10 seconds to tear the sleeves off of one of their shirts. You know we play into October right?
6 N/AF'n unicorns and winning. Dressed in subtle pink they won their first game, a pitchers duel that ended 6-3.
7 N/Areal proud of that logo. captures the essence of their team name. Didnt get to see the whole game but they won. thats all that matters, that and fun which matters 100%. winning+fun=100000% good times. I think
8 N/A Had already entered their score (which I did not know captains could do) before I woke up from my Dan's sponsored coma. That drops you in the rankings somehow.
9 N/AStole some of their teammates in the off season and gave them backwards printed shirts and a low power ranking. And they lost in their first game. Please come back next week, its a new day
10 N/Awonderful logo that you have to stare at for a long time to get the meaning. New team name did not produce a win
11 N/A#ballbusters. Lost a close one to the gooze crew who Im sure cheated to win.
12 N/ADidn't play
13 N/ANot sure if they played either. 3 runs?
14 N/ADidn't play
15 N/AKinda played. Need a full team every week, rankings committee mildly concerned about this.
16 N/ANothing to see here, move along.

Leaving them at #1 because I want whoever they play to get pumped up to take on the #1 team and to celebrate exorbitantly when they take this team down. I want to be there to see it, tears of joy will flow.

They are technically the #1 team in the league due to run differential (which shouldn't matter since we are just out there for fun right? right........) They continually reminded the committee at Dan's with a plethora of hand gestures that all told me to go F myself or at least thats what I think it meant

2-0 for the first time since....well ever Im pretty sure. I dont care if Im wrong on this I want to pretend they were terrible and are now getting better. A few of their name tags need to be filled in here soon

Barely won, I think playing in the minor leagues of Concord ruined their chance at a title this season. They looked rusty. No I didnt watch the game, blind put downs are the way of the power rankings

Won their first game, returned to their coffins to wait for their next game this Thursday. They don't go to the bars, they don't seem to drink, they are just out there to play and argue the fair/foul rules.

It's enjoyable to see them hate the poor last ranked team S&B so much. They have some secret agents on their team from the old Tequila Mockingbird regime that they need to be careful of. The committee looks on with glee.

They won a game and were quite fired up about it. That exuberance carried over to Dan's where things ummmm escalated quickly. Well done.

0-2 doesnt look good on anyone. They play the equally desperate #7 ranked team next week in the battle to the bottom ranking.

Didnt play this last week. They play last ranked S&B on Thursday so they will no doubt move up regardless of outcome

Whoa a new number 1! Since the power rankings committee spent a few weeks in prison these rankings are long overdue. Those “lets kick it” folks are not throwing regular season games anymore so can’t leave them at #1. I’m sure that makes little sense but just go with it. This wild herd of roaming and intoxicated buffalo bring it every week and are much deserving. They bring their own fans who are equal opportunity hecklers. They will boo an umpire just as quick as someone bunting. I’ve even heard some good hearted threats made to their own team for sucking most every game (except for this last one which they inexplicably won). Dan’s Bar note: The commissioner's office closes at 10pm and will not be accepting any more shots of any kind. Friday mornings say NO.

They would have been #1 last weekend if I was able to coherently put together these rankings. To recap: Their pitcher begrudgingly put the unicorn mask on to pitch after he figured out A. he couldn’t see anything and B. If a ball comes back at him there is no way he is catching it. What happens? A ball comes right back into his magical rainbow’y unicorn mask and hilarity ensues. I’ve only seen 1 other pitcher take a face shot in kickball and it was pathetic compared to this once in a lifetime moment. It was real and it was spectacular. The also washed some of their uniforms in glitter. You can’t wear pink jerseys with unicorns on them without going all in.

Quietly putting together one of their finer seasons to date. They have tried to disguise their identity through many uniform changes, even mocking the last ranked Shake & Bake with orange tuxedos a few seasons back (not a great idea). One thing they can’t disguise is most of their good players are back and their kickball competence is at an all time high. To improve: flipcup. My goodness you guys are bad. There are 3 championships in this league and not attacking all of them is just wrong. Get better.

After watching a few of their new girls launching home runs on Thursday the commissioner's office held an emergency recruiting meeting. What did we miss? How did we miss it? How did they not end up on Shake & Bake? Why would we help the former champs get better when they were so obviously in decline? Someone should get fired for this but Mrs. Commish said “F You if you think I’m running this”. Great meeting. They should also be last for not observing the booze zone. I guess the drunken 4th grade map was not clear enough. Pull it together & clean it up.

They did not play this week but moved up due to last week’s performance. They have been getting Munson’d by most everyone until they came with a battle plan last week. One of their players showed up and proclaimed they had a new line up and a new outlook. At that point they promptly dismantled some poor team for their first win. I feel like they have had 3 byes in 5 weeks. Should probably look into that.

For a while there it looked like they were going to beat Let’s Kick It. They were playing defense, kicking it all over the place, it was looking good. But like all other seasons it wasn’t to be. A turning point fair/foul call being the difference as usual. If someone knows where your manager is please let me know. About to call the milk carton people to get his picture out there.

Somehow I was able to set the schedule generator to “diabolical” and they got two bye weeks in a row after their 3rd loss of the season. Week 6 and 0-3 is very deserving of some pity. Not sure if they can get things back together after so much time off but here’s to hoping. Buried in this team is the heart of Tequila Mockingbird which never met a game they wouldn’t bunt to win. I’m feeling some magic this week.

Put up with some mild d-baggery in Week 4 and lost then had to play the atrocious S&B on Thursday. Put up an incredible fight and almost came back for the upset. Almost. They tried their patented kicking out of order but somehow kept their bunting to a minimum. Their recruiting and roster building is finally paying off with a very good lineup. Their GM just got a new 3 year contract. I’d pour him some champagne if they ever showed up to the bar.

Complete disrespect with this ranking. They went for blood on Thursday and got it. 2-2 overall at this point is just bizarre, Vegas had them at 0-4 but they keep surprising (blatant baiting). They had an incredible moment too where someone took a ball directly off the face while standing on 2nd base and got called out somehow. That didn’t go over well. Thank you for observing the “Booze Zone” too, its much appreciated.

They are hell bent on winning this league and are 4-0 with some impressive wins. Naturally that puts them in the bottom of the rankings. They show up to the bar in force and are some very nice people. This means nothing. They observe the booze zone without being told by bringing their wonderfully drinkable Gatorade hallucinogens.

Man do they like to party. Before, during, and after games. Since the random schedule generator put them on the dirt field they have mastered destroying dugouts into the back alley of some dive bar. Their placement of drinks last week just outside the zone was pretty funny. Comparable to a child putting their finger an inch from your face and saying “Im not touching you”. Work in progress.

Didn’t play last week and deserve to be ranked higher, much higher than be surrounded by this riff raff down here. They are 1-2 with only a -1 run differential. They are a sneaky good team and can also handle reffing the biggest complainers we have.

Didn’t play last week either which seems to factor into these rankings since I can barely remember the last 15 minutes let alone a week ago. This reminds me that we need some good guest rankers. Will send out something soon to teams to defend themselves so it isn’t left up to one very biased and jaded committee of one.

They have not busted many balls this season. Think they need to buck the trend and start trash talking some teams. It’s the only way to steal a win. Bunting and trash talking. Is it frowned upon? Absolutely but we are not out here to make friends or make people feel good about themselves. Wait that’s wrong. Hmmmmm whatever, try it for a week. Be the villain.

A negative 41 run differential doesn’t look good on anyone. They need to make a change in the front office immediately and get a new offensive coordinator to breath some new life into this team. They are probably sandbagging all of us and will show up for the playoffs and steamroll everyone. That is basically the best case scenario right now.

A +45 run differential and never having lost a regular season game in the last 5 seasons looks great on anyone. But this team has issues. Kicking it 300 feet and not 325? Cmon Big Mike do you even lift? We have a mandatory doping schedule that you seem to be missing. They have given up double digit runs in 2 of 4 games this year. Their roster has swelled to over 20 due to over recruiting and outsized awesomeness. Please stop making flip cup not fun for everyone by winning every match up every week.
