Shall the Mr. Green of legend get his revenge for falling to the mighty Sharks? Only one way to find out. Let me know when you''re available.

NEVER DAMNIT! NEVER!

You and your god damn genetically enhanced gaming skills! Why Dog why?

Okay, my girl is away all day on Sunday. That could work.

Sunday should be cool. I wouldn''t mind trying to knock it out in the morning PST. What time did you have in mind?

Any time from 9 to 5 should be fine.

*calculating*
Hmmmmm that makes it 12pm EST... how ''bout 10am PST pal ?

Okay, 10am PST that is!

I''ll try to be on at 10 am PST tomorrow, Green.

Done and done. Just for everyone''s benefit, if you DON''T want e-mail updates, just go into the settings on the ESPN site and take your e-mail address out (or don''t put it in if it''s not there yet).

Thanks. I like to get them, it''s an easy way to keep up on the leagues.

when do you minnesota(romulox) want to play. just let me know

King, on now

Well, SM and I just finished our game, and his White Sox squeaked past my Tigers 1-0. But, I''m counting it as a loss for him, because come on, you only beat the Tigers by 1 run?

It was pretty much a pitchers'' battle... I had 6 or so hits, but couldn''t convert into any runs.

The computer realized I was the Tigers, though, and passed a ball right through Pena''s legs at first, which dribbled into the outfield and gave Squirrel the opportunity to bring a man in from second.

Then, he calls up this CRAZY sidearmed (more like underhanded) pitcher in the 9th, and I get a runner to first and third, but with two outs, just can''t get the job done.

It was a good game (frustrating because I was swinging at EVERYTHING, but good) and a nice introduction to the League. Hope everyone else has fun with their games.

Sorry ruthless... I was out this weekend away from highspeed internet and haven''t been able to post. Would this Wednesday night anytime after 8PM work? My schedule is kinda screwy and I''m trying to think of a good time to play where I won''t have interruptions. Other times possible between now and then would be Monday 2:30-4pm, or 8:30-10pm; or Tuesday after about 11:30pm. Let me know what ya think.

Oh yeah... times are CST.

Bottom of the 9th, Cleveland up 6-5. The Angels get their leadoff man on. My starter is exhausted. The Bullpen gates swing wide.David Riske emerges from the pen, and starts a determined jog to the mound. The crowd goes wild! Music blares!

SWAMP THING! YOU MAKE MY HEART SING! YOU MAKE EVERYTHING GROOVY! SWAMP THING!

Yep, the Indians are 1-0. I managed to score 6 runs, and the man known as Coco Crisp is making an early run for league MVP.

The heretofore unknown (to me anyways) KingCohiba, in addition to being a very nice guy, is great at taking advantage of fielding blunders.

It got very close, but I was able to nail it down with Riske. An apt name for my closer, the way I pitched.

Great game, King. You kept coming back at me.

Psycho crushed my poor Jays 4 to 1. I can''t hit the damn ball to save my life. HEEEEEEELLLLLLP!

gg Psycho. I hate you more than yesterday but less than tomorrow.

Psycho crushed my poor Jays 4 to 1. I can''t hit the damn ball to save my life. HEEEEEEELLLLLLP!

It''s their freaky stances, you''re doomed. DOOMED!

We''re both 1-0 now, I wonder who will slip first? I predict we''ll both lose on the same week.

Good game, Green. Hitting really is tricky. Maybe if you hadn''t motivated my guys by beaning me you would have won.

Well I know I''ll be losing next week. I''m up against Ruthless, and I hear this is not his first league. So if you wanna keep pace, you''d best lose next week too!

Ruthless and Romulox, you guys got a game scheduled? You be the only ones who haven''t played...

Warlock, could you please drop Uber Wolf from the league and send SwampYankeeGWJ an invite? Thanks!

For a second, I was like ""What? Where''s Uber Wolf going? I guess you can take his spot... also, did you get a new gamertag?""

Then I realized I was drunk and stupid.

I''ll kick Uber Wolf before I go to bed tonight. You should be able to join like normal, through the 2kSports site. Password is stan.

I think you need to send me an invite to join an existing league, but I may be wrong.
