sociopaths undefeated!

The Minnesota sociology Sociopaths capped another absurdly successful season Sunday, remaining undefeated in their last 1 games. The 'paths again combined tenacious defense with a vulgar display of power to vanquish arch-rivals, Bullwinkle's Saloon. A walk-off homer by the Penn. State Punk decided the contest for the second straight week. After the game, batboy Avery W. outlined a strategic plan to secure the Sociopaths' position as one of the top three graduate student/faculty sociology department slow-pitch softball teams in the world.

That's actually the theme of this year's American Sociological Association meeting: Do sociologists have all the fun?

Congratulations! You know, I heard that swinging a bat is almost the same as swinging a golf club. I wonder if that's true...

Oh yeah -- an easy transition, I'll bet. Same cliches, at least: "hit the ball hard and good things will happen," "see the ball hit the ball," etc. Plus Kevin Costner used the same weak swing (and played the same guy, now that I think about it) in Tin Cup and Bull Durham.

You don't give yourself proper credit, you held the team together despite hamstring injury that would have sidelined most professionals. You were the M.V.P!

A bad hammy only slows down *fast* players, I guess, which raises a philosophical question: How slow can one man go before he is running backwards?

Just slightly faster than the rotation of the earth?
