Amidst a flurry of shit talking via email correspondence, Big Oil boasted of their ability to receive government subsidies and enjoy tax-free status, while the middle class, as represented by the blue collar Brookline Black Sox and manager, Kenny Powers, continues to shrink and pay $4.00 a gallon.
South Oakland has a healthy respect and disdain for our long time rivals in Brookline who have been busy collecting seasonal unemployment and tossing beer kegs and cinder blocks at one another as part of an intense off-season conditioning program.
I imagine words insinuating milkshake drinking were thrown about while Oil management sauntered about Brooks Brothers buying polo shirts during lunch hour, and unwittingly hit ‘reply all’ on on of their team iPhones.
Big Oil plans to throw their ace tonight against Brookline with a game against the defending champion Ducks on Wednesday.
Clearly they think we’re a bunch of pussies. I don’t know what other conclusion can be logically drawn.
In other news, I finally saw There Will Be Blood, and the Oilers homepage finally makes sense. Solid flick.
Well played there for sure.
Ironically, the Black Sox picked their new team slogan, “Use a fucking piano leg with a nail in it if you have to,” from another Daniel Day Lewis movie, Gangs of New York.
If it doesn’t get rained out it should be a good one tonight at Spring View, as the revamped Big Oil squad takes on the always dangerous, Black Sox in a 2010 semifinal rematch.
