Mandatory Team Building Excercise

Posted by Titus on August 10, 2012

There will be a mandatory team building exercise held August 18 starting at 2pm and Dan Titus’s house.  You have all heard the old saying: “The team that drinks together, gets drunk together”………………….wait, that might not be it.  I got it!  “The team that gets drunk together, pukes together”.   Wait, that’s not it either.  I know……..its, “The team that plays together, wins together”. 

Even though the playing will not be on the field, some together time for some good old-fashioned male bonding (and female bonding; bring the wives)through alcohol is necessary to unite as a single force going into the playoffs.  Lets do some bonding!!

What is there to do at this team building exercise you ask?

  • Bags (tournaments)
  • Beer pong (tournaments)
  • Music
  • Food
  • Booze
  • & much much more(I have no idea what this will be yet)

We have a kid friendly house. And as always, the Titus rule to children applies; “They are not allowed to touch sh!&% or they’re outta here!” But seriously, we have a playground in the back, we will have some sort of bounce house and plenty of things for the kids to do while the team does their thing.

We will supply the keg and the meat. We ask that you bring a side dish or dessert. So come on down to the Titus house on August 18th starting at 2pm until whenever. Enjoy the food, beer, freshly mown crabgrass, music, and eventually your very own hangover. Let me know if you are coming!

Important Tiger Business

Posted by sharris2929 on June 2, 2011

When revered Tigers skipper Jeff Nelson held a team meeting back in March, many extremely important points were covered.  Changes to the team roster, team strategy, and of course his own pending retirement based on the performance of his team. 

And one topic was discussed that was more important than the rest:  post-game beers.

It was decided and agreed upon that the provision of beer for the team would be shared evenly among all players, and that the provider would be chosen via computer generated random selection software  (details available upon request). 

So for Saturday’s game, selection has been completed.  And the lucky provider of beer for Saturday’s game is:


Thanks, Dan.  We look forward to drinking off your dime.

Team Practice

Posted by sharris2929 on March 15, 2011

Esteemed manager Jeff Nelson has given us his blessing to try to organize a practice for this weekend, even though he will be unable to attend.  So if we have enough guys that are able to attend, we would like to have practice on Saturday, March 19th, at 9 am.  Practice will be held at Bo0ne Grove middle school.  Directions can be provided as needed. 

Please comment on this post to let us know if you’ll be able to make it.  If we don’t have a large response we probably won’t have it, so hopefully most of you can attend.
