Nothing takes the humour out of spending 90 minutes with your closest friends like losing by two touchdowns. Big Cat could find nothing to say to lighten the mood as the Falcons dropped a soggy turd on Sunday evening, losing to WMSPL Sean's Division Leaders Direct Elevator 26-12.
The Falcons were essentially burned in two innings when they couldn't close the deal after recording the second out. In the second inning, Direct scored 5 runs with two out, and in the sixth inning they scored TEN with two out. There's your margin of victory right there. This wasn't due to kicking the ball around or generally standing around with our collective thumbs up our collective asses. Direct just hit the ball very, very well.
They say one of the great things about MLB baseball is that there's no time to dwell on a loss, because you're playing the very next day. This is the situation in which the Falcons find themselves, with Greenthumb waiting at K1 Stadium for them Monday night at 9:30.
