Super Bass-Runnin' (sapphire) had kicked balls all season long to get to the Thursday Kickball Championship Game. Their super base runnin', super ball kickin', and super pep talkin' carried them through a kickball dream season. Super Bass-Runnin' stomped around the bases all season long, finishing with a 5-1 regualr season record and 76 runs scored (second most in the league). A good regular season is great, but Super Bass-Runnin' had gold in mind, and the playoffs are where kickball legends are made. Led by Team Motivational Speaker/Ace Pitcher, Vanessa, the sapphire sluggers were able to sneak by the semi-final round with a 7-6 victory in OT. The dream team of 'kick the ball and run in a diamond' found themselves on kickball's biggest stage, and the only obstacle in their way was Mrs. Albee Kicks Balls (daisy).
Sensing the momentousness of the situation, Vanessa corraled her teammates and made a rousing pep talk that was more epic than Bill Pullman in "Independence Day", more badass than Russell Crowe in "Gladitor", and more heroic than John Belushi in "Animal House". You could see the confidence in Super Bass-Runnin' was at an all time high as they yelled out in unionson with one awkward puase "SUPER BASS....RUNNIN'!!!!"
Of course it was not meant to be. Mrs. Albee Kicks Balls were too much for any Super Bass-Runnin'. The kickball gods can be fickle and despite a season of Super Kickballin', Super Bass Runnin' couldn't put a gold cherry on top of their sundae. Although they seemed pretty happy just to go to Crimescene and celebrate anyway.
