Another perfect example of Orange Head Syndrome. Wrote this recap for the softball team. Three people enjoyed it. Makes me crack up every time I read it:
The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the forging of the Great Networks. Four was given to the Peacocks; immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. Seven, to the Mice, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And five, five was gifted to the race of Foxes, who above all else desire power. For within these rings was bound the strength and the will to govern over each race. But they were all of them deceived, for a new network was made. In the land of Black Rock, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret, a master network, to rule primetime. And into this network he poured all his cruelty, his malice, his will to dominate all life and a bunch of shows that aren’t funny, but somehow are the most watched comedies in all of middle earth. One network to rule them all. One by one, the free peoples of Middle Earth fell to the power of the Eye. But there were some who resisted. A last alliance of peacock men and women played softball against the armies of the Eye, and on the very shores of Roosevelt Island, they fought for the pride of the Peacock. Victory was near, but the power of the Eye could not be undone. It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Mason Florida, son of John, took up purple bat, and hit a ball deep into left over the fence onto the basketball court. In the end, the eye of Sauron proved to be too much for the mighty peacock and the proud ones fell 11-5
(3rd Inning: Skip on third: “All She Does is” Eh-Win Bollendorf at the plate)
Sauron’s Shortstop (to third baseorc): Easy out here
Skip: (Screaming) Erin they said you are an easy out. Are you gonna take that?
(“All She Does is” rips a single through the infield and Skip scores)
