Big Al's Softball Speech

(Big Al taking it deep.)

Today Big Al's softball team is going to play game #3 of the 3 game series of the semi-final playoffs. We miraculous split last week's 2 games to force a decisive game #3. Nobody thought we'd be here today, but we are. In doing so, I've decided to write a speech as inspired by Independence Day. (Speech subject to change).

Good afternoon. In a few minutes, once everybody shows up, we’ll be embarking on one of the biggest games in the history of LastCut.

Last Cut -- that word should have new meaning for all of us today. It implies the end, going home, first one out, scratching our a$ in the off season, taking ballet lessons, having to go home to wife, etc.

This isn’t the last cut…. This is just the first cut.

I know I’ve been a hot head this year. Pumping up my stats, making you feel bad because my average is better than yours, and showing off my “tickets” or emphsizing the “M..E..” in TEAM. But that’s okay. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. Just because we’re fat, skinny… short or tall… white, brown or yellow… higher OBP or OBP…. can catch a ball or watch it go between our legs. We’re all the same today.

Yes, we’re the #4 seed. Yes, in the history of LastCut softball we’re 1-5 in the month of September. And yes, I bet Teddy that we’re going to lose by 10.. but who cares?

Perhaps its fate that today is the 10th of September, and there are 10 of us on the field and you will once again we will be fighting for our right to survive not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution -- but from elimination and from going home each Wednesday night to the wife.

And should we win today, the 10th of September will no longer be known as the day before September 11th, we will be known as “Cinderella” – a name that Teddy is very comfortable with.

Just remember, as the going gets tough.. when you’re out there by yourself alone. Think about the TEAM, and remember that there’s a “M" and "E" (you)… and a big “A” and “T” who’ll be making fun of you when you fail.

I'm inspired. That was a great speech..... for me to poop on.
