Game of the Week
Whiskey Rebellion vs. Mixed Nuts: July 18. 2019
This game was hot -- face dripping, heat index of 103, easily drank 7 Coors lights -- hot.
But, the small yet hearty squads of Whiskey Rebellion and the Mixed Nuts showed up to play, thankful for a few shady spots on the sidelines.
For the first couple innings, runs were traded making us remember how well shots of Whiskey and Mixed Nuts go together. There were solid defensive plays on both sides with the Whiskey 3rd base-woman racking up lots of outs. But somehow after roasting in that heat, the Nuts' bats caught fire--including an amazing 13-run two-out rally in the 4th, which led to a 30-11 Mixed Nuts win.
With the sun finally set, both teams enjoyed dusk into dark in lovely Anacostia park. Beers were drunk, bug spray was shared, and yes the cops did have to come kick us out!
