John Danger Hirsch knows about Benders
John Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about Figoni going off cycle and losing 30lbs in the offseason, that Larson’s retirement Sandusky’d the blog, that Everchill managed to add another name to Abbot’s list (RIP Tamir*), or that E-Dub screams FUCK!!!!!!!!! loud enough to startle Hellen Keller. Danger doesn’t give a fuck if TJ is the world’s skinniest football player, that Gigante made an adjustment, that Sean Chase punishes baseball’s like Adrian Peterson’s kids, or that Todd’s moustache makes him look like a rapist. Danger doesn’t give a fuck about Kalush’s emoji’s, that Reed punches his clown watching Tim Kurkjian, that Sal hits off speed pitches as good as he pulls out, or that Old Crowe coaches 3B like he’s at a silent disco.
You might think that Danger gives a fuck about your fame and influence, but he doesn’t. Danger doesn’t care that Sneaky Pete looks like Vinny Chase… movie star looks won’t save a tribesman from the list. Danger doesn’t give a fuck that Ricky Henderson big league’d What Pros Wear™, or that Little Joey settled for Punky Brewster, despite Proud Dad’s pleas. Danger could not be less impressed if you fly around the world with One Direction, that you used to DP Venezuelan chicks with Gregor Blanco, or if your meal is comp’d in Denver when the server recognizes you as Klutch. Danger doesn’t even give a fuck that the Tide are mercy ruling the San Francisco Giants in the Wife and Girlfriend department.
That’s right, John Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about any of that because the Godfather fucked cancer and the Tide rolled 7-6 against the Benders on wild card weekend. Pitching and defense has been the foundation of the 2015 Tide campaign. If you told Danger that the Tsunami would hang up a 7 spot and have the entire staff available he would bet you all the cocaine in the world that the game would be a snooze fest. Interestingly, Two Hole reminded everyone all week just how good our run differential had been against the rest of the league so the jinx was in. Next time… shut up Tom! (How anyone fucks you remains one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of life.)
Godfather started the game with strike one down the dick… but it was Gigante (hell bent on proving to Rizzo that he had made an adjustment) who stepped up to render the Benders bats helpless against a red angry Giant. With a bullpen full of aces, Gigante exited after 6 strong innings and a constant peppering of “two out rall-ahh” by Willie McGee’s uglier cousin. Due to the constant threat of a rally, Tony was nowhere to be found (JK Evan….ah who gives a shit he won’t read the email anyway).
Rucker took the mound in the 7th ready to continue his year long dominance, however the curse of the pale WASP began to unfold. After a few uncharacteristic walks/miscues the Benders were threatening to send the Tide packing. Given the 2015 Tide is more loaded than ever, a first round exit in such close proximity to the Golden Gate Bridge would have surely sent Jake Taylor swan diving to a watery death. Lucky for the Tide, Young J Hardaway and the baseball Gods helped to tip the scales for the good guys… a close call at 2nd and a passed ball to take the lead. Kangaroo Jack took the bump in the 9th refusing to be rattled by a bunch of silly Americans in pinstripes. In a tense 9th inning that saw the tying run reach first base the side was retired on a line drive to Two Hole and just like that the Tide survived and advanced. Next up on the road to the ship will be the Aces at Stenzel Park on Saturday.
Bump Kings: Godfather for fucking cancer and throwing out the 1st pitch
Dropping Braj: We’re certain someone got a hit. Really can’t recall. Possible that we hit 100 groundballs to the infield that were all kinds of zoo’d. Who knows?
Tootblan: It wasn’t Cam’s fault Rizzo bunts like dogshit
Inexcusable: Stranding 87 runners in 8 innings
Getting Involved: Spice firing up the post-game BBQ and fire pit. Well played sir, well played.
Getting Over Involved: RIZZO, for fucks’ sake, stop beating up Baby Spice!

Jon Danger Hirsch Doesn’t Give a Fuck About Drake
Jon Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about Drake. Or the beaten-like-a-dead-donkey story of the “high cost of living” in San Francisco, or a 5-year plan involving the word “marketing,” or the FDA recommendation for Creatine intake, or the Oakland A’s ongoing fire sale, or going under the needle for some new ink, or spraying down a bunch of drunk techies with cheap champagne, or Everchill’s constant dryhump ruining what’s left of his arm, or 86ing one of Bumsted’s derelict friends from SFAC, or waking up on time for a game, or wearing batting gloves, or punching his clown, or the 10-9-1 Benders, or dick balloons, or a mound rebuild, or what the pros are wearing, or praying for Ratto, or LinkedIn, or going hogging, or the Super Regionals in Fort Worth, or talking shit to Tony. Refreshingly, he still doesn’t give a flying fuck about any of it.
It’s a good thing someone doesn’t care about Drake. God knows we need more people in this world taking a similar stance on the matter. But I suppose you can’t blame people like Old Crowe feeling a bit agitated at the Canadian pop-star’s recent publicity stunt. If releasing a “dis-track” and throwing shame at Philadelphia’s own Meek Mill won’t get Old Crowe riled up, I don’t know what will. But slapping a photo of a galloping Joe Carter on said track? Well there is the line in the sand. No way, bud. Not on the same day Cole Hamel’s contract gets dumped off to a bunch of oil barons in Arlington. That will make Old Crowe’s blood boil right there.
But who knows, maybe I’m wrong about this. Maybe Sq****’s pending IPO might smooth things over. Maybe Old Crowe can just point and laugh. What we do know is that Jon Danger doesn’t give a fuck. About any of it.
The 2015 Tide are approaching August baseball for the fifteenth time together, and Old Crowe still hasn’t aged one year during this period. Unlike basketball (see: Franchise, Stevie), I guess the process of grinding for rec-hardball ‘ships does indeed keep you young.
Winners of fifteen games thus far, the Tsunami’s official record actually reads “16-3” thanks to a godforsaken forfeit from an outfit named the Benders. As fate would have it, the soon-to-be 17-3 Tide will square off versus those very same Benders on Wildcard Weekend. A money grab with the TV networks if there ever was one, Wildcard Weekend will essentially serve as a spring training tilt for the Figoni’s of the world. A chance to dust off the braj and purchase some Apple Care at the only Mac phone store in Monterey. Next up will be the Aces in the Ocean Divisional Series (ODS) followed by the Isotopes in the Ocean Championship Series (OCS). Then the all-elusive Ship at SLBP. Where the dogpile will occur and the Foley Cup will be awarded.
But before we can find out where the Tide are going (down Broadway in a tinted out black town car), it makes sense to take a step back and see where the Tide have been first.
Where the Tide have been is inside The Joint, at a funeral and everywhere in between. Bourbon Street, the base of Touchdown Jesus, The Friendly Confines, the Cactus League, Omaha Nebraska, the wedding alter, South America, Chiraq, back to The Joint, SFAC, The Field Tommy Found, and that’s just the start.
As is well publicized, The Godfather placed himself on the 30-Day DL back on December 7th. This lead Gigante to utter the famous line, “Time to start pulling on the same rope for The Godfather. There is no ‘I’ in ‘Fuck You Cancer.’” No truer words.
So off ‘Father went to The Joint, equipped with a 24-pack of lubed up rubbers issued by some nameless hot nurse probably named Becky. He proceeded to climb up on the hill with an Orel #55 on, dust off the dirty rubber, and waste no time pumping the pearl and painting the black and fucking cancer.
Meanwhile, Gigante and co. were off to Louisiana for his Dick Funeral in early January, charging hard with the motto “What happens below the Mason-Dixon Line, Stays below the Mason-Dixon Line” written under the cap of his Tide hat. Pucks flew, jiggle joints were patronized, beads were tossed, yes. But more importantly, TommyGun Sal squatted down in a NOLA bar and worked on his pop time for a good 3 minutes. Thankfully, all members of the platoon made it out of the war zone alive.
It wasn’t long, however, until we were alerted of the news of Ernie Banks’ passing. If Let’s Play Two was half as athletic and born in the Bay Area, you can bet your ass he would have played in the SFNABA for many an Ernie Banks Specials. The Tide responded as Ernie would have liked, playing more baseball.
But to play, you need a field, and the Tide didn’t exactly have one, so TommyGun grinded his dick off and found us one. A field to call our own, or “The House Tommy Found.”
By February, Godfather was back out at an area field swinging the goddamn dick from the left side. “I got better today,” Godfather would explain.
It wasn’t long thereafter that Rizzo was off to Arizona to visit his world champion son, Joe Panik. Camera in hand, he cajoled his way into a green collar dugout, and rubbed elbows with Will Ferrell and Rickey Henderson. “In the Big Leagues, they usually can give you the right glove,” Rickey explained.
Rizzo returned with stories from the Promised Land, but also warned his Tide brethren about mistakes made even at the highest level. “Not everyone responds to wall-to-wall carpeting in the right way. And that. That is a rotten shame,” he lamented.
Such fodder was needed for what was deemed the “Mound Rebuild Of The Century” at Paul Goode Field. Of course, it ended up being a day-long clusterfuck, but Danger brought a few new tattoos to the party, so that helped. Other topics of discussion included the good old days when 2Hole routinely went hogging on Benard Street, if Ratto is still alive and how wooly Coachella has become due to trends in the modern society.
On the field, the Tide were their usual selves during the regular season. Pitching fantastic, hitting ok, and running the bases like they don’t really give a fuck what Everchill thinks. Sure, their dicks went limp against the Wood as they have a habit of doing, and they split an Ernie Banks with the Topes, but other than that, it has been fairly chalk.
The Road To Omaha seemed to keep some Tide members adequately distracted from their professional lives during the month of June. The More Ping Less Bling Degenerate Gambling Pool attracted more Dirtbags than ever before. The Florida Gators were the Tide’s Ping team of choice. And thank God. Betting on UC Santa Barbara to win anything but the Wool Olympics or a Commie Kickball game is evidently a fool’s errand. Irregardless, the pilgrimage to Omaha was made and a few lucky Tide members were fortunate enough to take the Ping Right of Passage. Between EYL’s 10-hour bus ride wading through the cornfields of Iowa and Gigante’s now famous 7-IPA 11-run 4th inning at The Blatt gastropub, the Tide certainly learned a lot about themselves.
As the summer has wore along, and June turned into July, the Tide organization learned of tragedy with the passing of Young J. Hardaway. One of the OG’s, J. Hardaway played in what some call “The Larson Era.” He was a player and a man whom no one spoke poorly of, but rather always respected. A Tsunami player who paved new roads in the SFNABA alongside (to name just a few) Larson, Everchill, Old Crowe, Danger, Omaha, Brill, and of course The Godfather.
Fortunately, with as much heartache as the Tide dealt with in July, Godfather was able to provide some positive news for Tsunami Nation. “I have effectively FUCKED CANCER,” announced ‘Father. His clean bill of health had arrived.
Of course, as July now turns into August, Godfather is quick to remind us that the dogfight still rages on and the same certainly still holds true in the SFNABA, albeit on a much smaller scale.
Wildcard Weekend kicks off on Sunday August 9th at 1:30pm. Let the Tide roll…

“Godfather’s Rehab Assignment”
The Godfather of the SFNABA, the almighty creator, put himself on the DL on December 7th. Not with a strained oblique or a sore hammy, but with cancer.
Because it was cancer, he took the liberty to put himself on the 30-day DL, rather than the customary 15-day DL. It was a typical stand up move by Godfather, giving Jake Taylor, Old Crowe and the rest of the Tide front office suits enough time to make any personnel moves (ie. call up some cocky schmuck from the California JUCO burnout circuit). No one in the old-man wood bat community quite has the clout to put Godfather on the DL, so he went ahead and announced it himself, like the man he is. All told, Godfather only spent 25 days on the DL. He came off the DL on New Years Eve, 2014.
Godfather put himself on the DL on Sunday, December 7th. The first words of the Disabled List announcement read, “Well shit…”
Within the announcement there was link to a new blog authored by the Godfather himself, titled: “FUCK YOU CANCER.”
The title is more appropriate for The Shitter Twitter than anything else, but Godfather isn’t the type of guy to go with the generic “Stand Up To Cancer (S^2C)” slogan. He’d rather just say, “Fuck you cancer” and get on with it.
Godfather came out of the gate swinging a relatively hot stick, all things considered. His first post was titled “When, Where, What, How?” as in “Give me the fucking ball, Skip, and get out of my way. My cutter is moving today, and my Uncle Charlie is falling off the table. I’m going to head out there and put a couple new salt lines on my Tide hat. Come get me in the 6th or 7th inning. And make sure the post-game IPA is cold and hoppy, would ya?”
Godfather outlined things bluntly in his first post. One of the rules was, “Do not send flowers (read: I’m not a fucking pussy, you guys).” Fair enough.
Non Runner showed up shortly thereafter with some other derelicts from the Tide roster. To see Godfather, sure, but mostly to take stock of the wool in the UCSF nursing corps. (There was plenty of it, thank God). Poker night fell through, but Non Runner cracked enough racist jokes to make up for it.
Three days later, Godfather took to the web to inform us that he had talked his way into a room of his own, complete with a nicer TV and (presumably) hotter nurses. Chemo had started and Godfather took time to remind us that there was “no excuses.” Well fine then Godfather, no excuses, including chemo.
By the end of the week Godfather was wrapping up “Round 1” of chemo. Just absolutely kicking the shit out of it. Mike Tyson style, inside the MGM grand in Vegas, black shoes with black trunks. No robe, just walking into the ring with his shirt off and boxing gloves on, foaming at the mouth, demanding someone to ring the bell so he could go fuck some cancer up a 4am.
By the following week, after a brief look around at the Rock Bottom Hotel (a site Non Runner has seen too many times on flights back from Miami), Godfather was back in good spirits, in a new room. An illegal PED called Neupogen was pumped into Godfather, much to his delight. The soap opera wool wasn’t half bad either.
By the 20th of January, Godfather was back down in a dark valley, this time it resembled a Jon Danger-Columbia-bender type dark valley, but it wasn’t long before he was back up for air, with his Amazon Fire TV stick firmly in hand and his Iron Mike black trunks still on.
By year’s end, Godfather was well enough to issue a few press passes, namely to Section925.society.org. It was the first time media outlets had heard from the gentle giant in almost a month. ‘Father assured his fanbase he’d be off the DL by the beginning of 2015 and he took the time to talk Los Angeles Dodgers hot stove, lamenting the loss of Dee Gordon, but welcoming in Howie Kendrick with open arms.
Godfather is home for now, enjoying some MLB Network and recharging his batteries for some more 9 inning battles at UCSF, high above Big Rec. It’s only a matter of weeks now until SFNABA pitchers and catchers are due to report, in the league that the Godfather created. If you need to find him, he’ll either be at his house, UCSF, or the yard. Just don’t send him any fucking flowers.

Jon Danger Hirsch does not give a fuck about nicknames

Jon Danger wants some hits. Hard ground balls through the pitcher’s wickets. Soft liners over third. Seared fastballs into the gaps.
This is not about the Philosophy of History, guys. Nobody invited you here to think. Last I checked nobody’s last name was Hegel or Kant. We’d prefer you hit. “Drop some Braj,” is it, how they say? John Fucking Ratto is not walking through that door. Toddamus is not walking through that door. So to hit we need momentum. And for momentum we need camaraderie. As a very wise man once said, no matter how funny the accent: “We may not have much, but at least we’ve got each other.” So let’s fucking act like it. And get out to ballgames. And give each other shit online, especially the simple ones (like the ones whose SS#s are 56#-8#-####). (they can take it; they don’t always know what’s going on). And then hit like you’re still the cocky 18-year-old whose best friend’s girlfriend is dying to sleep with you.
Tsunami Several, All Blacks Uno
Gigante shoved. Defenders flailed. Enjoy Your Lipper raked. The ABs ran out of gas.
Tsunami Lots, All Blacks Dos
We’re not the ones trying to start a Southern Hemisphere war between the two inbred alcoholic adrenaline-junkie junk-toothed outcasts of the English-speaking world. All Blacks is a kiwi Rugby team (union? Probably. Maybe 7s? who can be bothered? Who can’t be fucked?) The fact is we’re the ones with the real Aussie and the ABs seemed much more Burlingame than Shire.
Thor pitched a helluva game in heavy heat, especially considering he spent several of the first hours of his day gathering patience in right. Rizzo heartily supported him, coaching even, all the way from centerfield. Quiet Guy made a career play up the middle, attributed the safety meeting between games. Gigante took about five hours to get some Gatorades. Daniels and Taylor looked 20 at the plate, 49 in the field. Taylor refused to hit it where they ain’t.
Zero nominations received by deadline.
Enjoy Your Lipper, 8-11, 64 RBI.
Daniels, 0-0, 2 RBI.
Thor and Quiet Guy had some hits, too, maybe a few others, but Taylor refused to send over stats in two weeks time despite years of begging for blog.
Thor!: New solution at shortstop: get these pitchers diving, covering some ground!
Quiet Guy: Ok, so let’s not talk about Game 1. Let’s just remember Game 2 and the Alomar-like range and throw to a giddy, scooping Everchill.
NSFW: Incredible dive and glove. This category dos not necessarily include throwing.
Vinnie Chase didn’t fuck up. Who else can say that.
Jake Taylor: 9 innings. Zero injuries.
But in reality there’s been some really shitty gloveplay lately, and it can’t all be blamed on Mercury in retrograde and an overhyped Seth MacFarlane acting debut. Catch the ball. Throw the ball. Score one or two runs and let the pitchers do the rest.
NSFW: “It’s hard to film and fuck at the same time. It’s doing a math problem and . . . fucking.”
12-10-5. First game in 14 months. But remember: yes, we are talking Co-Ed here.
Basepaths (or, This Week’s Adventures In Dying):
Technically it wasn’t a base-running error. Just a miscalculation of speed. CS does not equal picked off.
And then there was the time Old Crowe threw up the brakes before the parrot-armed LF picked up the ball. Thank you, Tsunami, for not stopping.
Enjoy Your Lipper: SURE, SURE.
This Week’s Tsunami Spotlight: An Interview With Second-Best Friends

LS: Wait, are we talking about finishing too?
JDH: What do you think?
LS: I’m pretty sure penetration counts.
JDH: Well, in any case, you’ve again won the sympathy vote.
LS: I’m not gonna justify that with a response.
JDH: Probably the transfer. I don’t mind a skin once I have it on.
LS: I thought we were here to talk about baseball.
JDH: Peace is undefeated in wars.
LS: Long as you don’t call count the Middle East.

“The Quintessential Experience” by Tom Hickey
Please indulge me for these moments of personal reflection.
I love the game of baseball with a passion I seldom match in other areas
of my life! That’s why this 59-year-old boy can be found in uniform on a Sunday playing the game that’s given him so much since his first organized game in 1950.
I play for love, and like true love, I ask nothing in return—except
for the ability to play and be contributory to my team and the game
itself. The joy is in playing—and the bonus—is the experiencing of the nuances of the game.
I must share my experience of April 22, 2001. No matter how long I play
this game—a new experience looms just ahead—to impress me that I
haven’t seen or felt everything.
In my 50 years of playing baseball I never hit a ball over a fence in a
game for a home run. I never experienced the exhaltation of trotting the
bases, rounding third, slapping the hand of the third base coach, and
looking up to see all my teammates waiting at home plate with giant
smiles (and, in this instance, looks of amazement that they had just
actually seen what they saw) on their faces. Sunday, it happened!
8th inning. Down 3 runs. Bases empty (if this were a movie, the bases
would have been loaded, and, my personal joy would have been
unrestrained because the homer would have won the game.)
3-1 count. just trying to get on base. I’ll take a walk, or, just make
good contact. Hit it hard. Find a hole. Get on so our better hitters can
make something happen.
The pitch. Letter-high fastball. Too good to take. Swing…....
I never experienced the sensation and joy of “getting all of it” and
getting under the pitch so that in that brief mega-second the
realization that the ball had “a chance” to go out was real.
Being a life-long “singles hitter” my only home run came at age 14 on a
field with no outfield fences. Batting right-handed, I hit the gap in
left-center and raced around the bases sliding home ahead of the tag (if
you’ve seen me run—maybe racing is an exaggeration.)
This time, batting left-handed, the sound of aluminum (I miss wood)
meeting baseball was “pure”. There was a “ringing sound” which means I
got it “all”.
I knew I had pulled the ball and 3 steps out of the batter’s box my eyes
went to the rightfielder. He started back slowly, then increased his
speed to the fence looking all the way like he had a bead on the ball.
I knew I hit it well to the right part of the field, but, would it
carry? He was at the temporary fencing not able to go farther. At that
moment my heart fluttered (and not for the usual reason a man my age
feels a heart fluttering sensation) as I saw him look up and the ball
sail about 10 feet over the fence.
Suddenly, the joy was replaced by concern. what would be my style of
trotting around the bases? Should I give a Kirk Gibson arm pump as i
approach second base? Should I raise my right arm to the sky?
No, I’d be traditional. Don’t want to show up the pitcher. After all,
how good could he feel allowing such a hit to someone my age. Nope, show
respect for the game and for the fact we still trailed by 2 runs. The
score was what was important. How can I celebrate when we are down to
our last two outs?
I believe baseball’s god smiled on this oldtimer. HE granted me an
opportunity before I go off into that corn field with Shoeless Joe and
Roy Hobbs and Crash Davis.
The fact that my sons stood at home plate, wearing the same uniform I
wore, with pride in their eyes, truely made me a blessed man.

Jon Danger Hirsch Doesn’t Give a Fuck About Leland Yee or Raymond ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow
Jon Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about Leland Yee or Raymond ‘Shrimp Boy’ Chow... or bedlam in the streets of the University of Santa Barbara, or tech bros acting chill on tech buses, or gentrification fucking up the mission, or preseason slumpbusters, or Shabazz Napier, or Pablo Sandoval’s playing weight, or Jim Johnson getting booed in Oakland, or what the pros are wearing, or Apple’s new operating system, or the cut fastball Nuke worked on over the winter, or anything that doesn’t involve inexpensive blow and girls tanned to a perfect golden brown.
Yeah, no really, he doesn’t give of a flying fuck about any of it. And why would he?
Listed on LinkedIn as someone “with a passion for Marketing”, Danger has put his fabricated five year plan on hold to purposely lose himself in the deep depths of the disjointed concrete jungles of South America. Occasionally he’ll stumble upon an internet cafe, at which time he usually has enough presence of mind to drop a line to Tide brass, letting the higher ups know that he is still alive, still is wearing a dirty wife beater, still has Jose Canseco-esque arms, and still has plenty of subterranean wool around in order to light the proverbial lamp when needed.
Even with Danger’s whereabouts unknown, (along with his hipster baseball pants and massive lipper and white Nike’s and oversized left handed stick) the show must go on, people. And so it has...
Welcome to 2014, folks. It’s here whether you signed up for it or not. All the veterans are a year older, a year wiser, and a year less athletic. The team Old Crowe put together, in the league Holy Godfather created is now in its 14th year of public service. That’s 14 years of not being afraid to throw on a dirty rubber, but who’s counting?
The captivating/galvanizing hashtag of the winter came from the big thumbs of Gigante. “#OneMoreYear” was the rallying cry. Appropriate when you consider that this flock of weekend warriors epitomize the idea of being “Day to day.”
2012 saw the Tide triumph over the Topes in one of the most classic baseball series on record. The ball hit to Tom at third, the Jeter-like backup from the heady Toddamus, the dramatic out call, the frantic celebration at the mound after Gigante’s final strikeout, the post game Bud Lights on the grass behind the third base dugout, the Tide’s collective hard-on going limp at SLBP the next weekend versus the upstart Wood. Twenty twelve had it all.
2013 again brought a plethora of excitement for the hometown fans. @TideDirtBags was born, the TST was in full-bloom, Larceny started a family, walk-offs became the norm, and the regular season Wave rolled to an unprecedented 18-2 mark in the regular season.
Unfortunately, the dream of a no holds barred dogpile on the mound in San Leandro and a ticker tape parade in a black town car down Market Street was not to be. Instead, the Tide fell to a lawyer with a do-rag, Brandon Phillips, and a schmuck from UC Davis who Abbot happily traded away. The Final Four loss was lowlighted by the now infamous “Monterey Massacre”. “Thumbs In Figoni” apparently lost his wits about him, guzzled one too many tequila shots at a beachside wedding, shattered his iphone, and woke up the next day two hours after the first pitch of a monumental playoff tilt. The word “gutwrenching” came to mind. Still does to this day.
But really, who are we kidding. Fuck it. It’s 2014 now.
As the Wednesday, April 18, 2012 headline plainly reads on SFTsunami.com, this group of grinders is clearly “No Longer the Fat Chick Anyone Can Fuck”. Instead, the Tide are a major player in the SFNABA landscape. A force to be reckoned with, if you will.
The big money pitching staff of Nuke and Gigante is still very much intact for another go around. Their silent rivalry still burns. Gigante’s signed minor-league baseball card still waits in vain on eBay.
Added to the pitching staff this year is an advertising Senior Creative from Australia. Sure, he may not have been born in America, but I’ll be damned if he doesn’t pump the pearl and swing the dick like he grew up playing on Sean Burrough’s Long Beach Little League World Series team. The guy brings some edge to him as well. From some ink on the arms to an impressive in-game lipper, some see shades of taller, righthanded, more laid back version of Danger on our hands. That’s only if you look hard enough.
Everchill Abbot also threw into the mix a new first baseman. His name is Spencer, but his on-field name already appears to be Rube Baker. With a body resembling Adam Dunn’s, the 4-year Ivy League starter looks more than capable of dropping braj. (sidenote: Rube’s Penn Quakers never quite won the Ivy title during his career, thus, Beustad and Toddamus never had a chance to gamble on him in the annual “More Ping Less Bling” college baseball pool, (coming your way again this June)).
Jake Taylor, as expected, came into camp “In the best shape of his life” and it shows!
Nuke spent the winter cyber-bombing team@sftsunami email chains, while Gigante spearheaded the “One more year” hashtag, crossfited to retain his velocity, and did his best to keep a leash on Tommy.
Tommy grinded all winter at his office in the FiDi, because that’s all he knows how to do. He also crosfitted his dick off in order to offset 2-week long Miami benders.
Vic still is the same stand-up individual, who might steal your car, Regards.
Consulting is who-knows-where. Probably in the south bay, quietly saving East Palo Alto from imploding onto itself, about to send out an e-mail offering up a pair of Giants tickets to the desk jockey with the quickest trigger finger.
Beustad spent the winter dicking off in Utah. Lifted a lot of weights with no apparent results, waited the tables of the eastern seaboard’s ultra-asshole-elite, updated his instagram feed, didn’t get laid, punched his clown a lot.
Rizzo and Tom retained their bachelor pad on Benard street. Both appear to have also retained their better halves. Tom’s insurance brokerage house appears to be booming, What Pros Wear likewise.
Toddamus and Tamir don’t look a day older. Their lives equipped with the reason and responsibility lost on so many Tide members over the years. Old Crowe is also back in the third base coaches’ box, with a new pair of snazzy cleats he found on WPW.
Hyphen’s return to the bay is pending, more on that later perhaps. For now he’s enjoying the wall-to-wall carpeting one can only find in So-Cal.
Godfather’s winter visions of a second ship in a wool-infested area of Arizona fell off the table like one of his Uncle Charlies, but one day, one day that trip will happen...
Games 2 and 3: Tide Rolls over the Oakland Athletics
The Tide have jumped out of the gate early in 2014 with a perfect 3-0 record. Game 1 saw a bomb from Figoni, as well as a roller coaster ride from Tom. Games 2 and 3 gave us a doubleheader sweep of a new SFNABA expansion team, the Oakland Athletics.
The A’s were no match for the two headed monster that is Nuke and Gigante. Both right handers dealt in their respective starts. Aussie Luke also showed off his arm during the twin bill. By the looks of it, the powerful bloke is not afraid to dot a guy, nor is he afraid to paint the black.
For his effortless scoop at first base after a drop third strike. Four years of baseball practice inside a gym on a snowy day in Pennsylvania really paid off there, I tell ya.
Nuke and Gigante. Per usual. Nothing to see here.
Guy swung it all day down in Albany vs the A’s. Shot an opposite field gap with the bases drunk, minutes after the Tide was on the wrong end of a pending perfect game. Everyone scored on the knock. RBI were had. Not sure anyone was on the book at that time to record it.
Honorable Mention Dropping Braj:
Announced his presence with authority with an oppo bomb over a silver monster in right.
Quote of the Week:
“My arm feels fucking awesome, you guys. Molly is a great anti-inflammatory.” - @NonRunner
TST of the Week
“#Pray4Tommy” - @EYL, @Gigante
The Tide take their traveling circus down the peninsula to face off with defending SFNABA champions, the Isotopes. Yes, as you may or may not have heard, this is #TopesWeek. Get your tickets while you still can. A huge walk-up crowd of rogue girlfriends and parents in their mid to late sixties is expected. Last year the Tide lost to the Topes 12-2. Mind you, this was without Fluffy on the 25 man roster. See you at the yard...

Jon Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about what the fucking pros are wearing
Jon Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about labor and delivery, barometric pressure, Tough Mudders, adapted screenplays, El Nino, vaginal hygiene, brother on brother Super Bowls, Frank McCourt, Magic Johnson’s son, the Eurozone, Kim Jong Un (Lil Kim!), cholesterol, east coast versus west coast (both have plenty of Jews, far as he’s seen), the McRib, Sandra Bullock, sixty-dollar T-shirts, surfing, crabs, lubrication, sinkholes, Batch 19, Black Crown, gluten-free, cage-free, farm-raised, locally-grown, heroin-laced, molly-spiked, Iron Man 3, Marc Gasol, torn Achilles, Mel Kiper Jr., March Madness, ozone, Oscars parties, evolution, intelligent design, steroid acne, Mork, Mindy, sunblock, laundry, lunar eclipses, solar flares, NOPA, wiping front to back, Armenians, MaxPreps, deodorant, fuel efficiency, The Richmond, long division, iced tea, white smoke over the Vatican, Hogwarts, the metric system, Kindles, The Dish Network, reruns, refunds, Hegel, slow jazz, San Jose, margarine, the Arab Spring, Code Red Mountain Dew, Colonel Jessup, pouting, winter Olympics, Bob Sagat jokes, dandruff, psoriasis of the liver, salmon roe, truffle oil, perpetual motion machines, Colonel Buendia, salt-rimmed margarita glasses, Geno Smith, lasting septums, The Brothers Karamozov, two-eyed strippers, Plan A, or what the fucking pros are wearing. He wants a blog. Give him a fucking blog. A real fucking blog, not some watered-down, heavy punches-pulled, new age, touchy-feely, Blog 2.0-bullshit. Jon wants the heavy bag. The big girl at the end of the bar with the biker already going down on her. Chicken-fried steak. Sheperd’s Pie. Five shots of whiskey and an IV of wolf adrenaline. Dethklok. Roman Bulldozers. Ass play. The gooch. Orgasm.
This is not a drill, people. This is real fucking life here. Fasten your seat belts and bite down on something.
Tsunami 7, Aces 2
The most retarded play in Tsunami baseball history repeats itself roughly every other time Laser Show runs the basepaths. A close second is Daniels taking a 3-2 pitch off the face like a date-raped cow napping on a driving range. Fortunately, Laser Show’s not here for his math, because his standard response of doubling next time up, scoring, and then explaining that, “I made it up for it, see!” does not hold up to advanced analytical examination: (-1 + 1 = 0; while +1 – 0 = 1; and +1 + 1 would actually = 2; imagine: 2!). So no, Mike, we’re not better off than we were before. Get yourself a graphing fucking calculator.
As for Daniels, well, Duck! It’s just plain stupid to go the plate with newborn-care reflexes. He still looked tough, though, sure. Even played it cool on the basepaths when teammates began heckling him from their fuzzy far-off dugout. You won’t get a rise out of Tsunami veterans.
At the plate, Black Label protested coach’s decision to bat him third by swinging like a Black Sock and striking out more times than he did last season, but Cooper came through with a big drive in the first to score Taylor from first. No one was driven in from second base because you’re not allowed ghost runners and Coach has yet to really consider the full potential of the Non-Runner designation to preserve outs. Old Crowe played a joke on Danger as the latter neared and rounded third, refusing to signal anything at all from the third-base coaches box, but the joke was on O.C. in the end: Danger refuses to do what anyone tells him to do in any situation outside of the bedroom, anyway, and scored easily. Just after Nuke tested how fast he could throw the ball off a moving composite barrel, Outlaw came to bat at the right time the next inning. With runners everywhere, he battled the straining Aces ace for seven hours, taking pitches and fouling them off, outlasting the determined Ace until Outlaw’s Adderall kicked in for the 15th or so pitch: game-breaking sharp single through the hole.
With the Tsunami tripling their preferred run output and then some, it was up to the prized staff not to spoil the party. Gigante looked the second most productive offense in SFNABA straight in the pants, and he liked what he saw, using the first nine batters faced to ripen his highlight tape. Nuke took a full stomach of Ike’s dirty sauce to the mound and experimented with dominance, wind currents, sudden energy loss, and applied existentialism in an uncharacteristically uneven performance. Or maybe he just wanted a little Danger. Happy to oblige, Jon D. Hirsch located Aces at first and second before borrowing a belt and remembering that his out-pitch is swagger. Backed by an extremely original and underused defensive alignment, Danger threw successive confidence balls until the Aces at last accepted their destined defeat.
Gigante is good, you guys. 12K, 5 IP, O ER, 2 H, 1 BB. Just three base runners. Fuck. And, unlike certain several Tsunami hurlers, he doesn’t make fielding his position look like intoxicated judo.
Bradley Cooper with the big first-inning blast to score Everchill Taylor from first. Admitted thanks to the centerfielder who got swallowed by the moment.
Outlaw with the eighty-pitch clutch at-bat to drive in Daniels with two on and two out.
Everchill Taylor looked two years younger.
Laser Show had some, I think, but still.
Old Crowe calls Aces outfield “Little league. Worst I’ve seen in a while.” Drops fly in right. Redeems self by tracking down fly in center Daniels ignored.
Cooper and Danger in double-secret competition to take most time delivering ball to outstretched heavily-panting salivating Taylor. No worries, though: tie goes to the runner, but out goes to the winner on this day at Balboa Park.
Bradley Cooper. 31-game streak threatening to draw significant local media attention.
Basepaths (or, This Week’s Adventures In Dying)
Laser Show: Does anyone have a leash?
Black Label: Brilliant fucking dead stop on way to second in front of cannonball, exactly twelve feet in front of the bag, sending Laser home and drawing throw, everybody safe. The particularly rare RBI from 1st base. Well done.
Daniels: SB! Well at least the ump said so.
Gigante. With authority and ease.
Whoever paid off the base umpire.
The base umpire.
Black Label. He’s not an ass at the plate very often, far from it, but even when he is he plays SS and Catcher and he drove in a run from first base. Contract could get expensive real soon.
Outlaw. Big hit, even after being hit himself. With a bat. Ouch.
Well somehow we’ve already played over a third of the season. Yikes. Someone other than Vinnie Chase should probably start hitting. The starters should start stretching out. Coach should take care of his gear. And we should probably catch up on the offseason before we barrel into the All-Star break.
Jon Danger Hirsch completed his Ph.D. in Dolores Park and applied for a post-doc fellowship.
Tu-Lin tried to pop a wheelie on his motorcycle.
Autocorrect fostered twin tapeworms.
Homewrecker continued his pursuit of immortality, slept with a female midget this time.
Bradley Cooper launched a provocative podcast, insured his hair, proposed to at least one non-traditionally beautiful heiresses, got new brake pads on his home, registered to vote, built a park-adjacent treehouse for a homeless couple, and started worrying about cell phone radiation.
Black Label started several small fires in his pants.
Godfather had a room named after him in a jiggle joint near the University of Nevada-Reno campus.
Figoni rode the elevator up a floor, then down again, then up to the penthouse, and so on.
Lorenzo Gigante jerked off naked in a room full of mirrors.
Borenstein put potato chips on his peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Laser Show conquered vertigo, rejected condoms, protested pass-word protected adult content sites, shaved hourly, drilled a hole-in-one in a solo round at Lincoln, kept it to himself, bought white jeans, protested traditional team colors, paid immeasurable attention to professional athletes’ attire, rocked the chain and, once again, played up for his league.
Frankel won $37,400 on Jeopardy.
Toddamus did not tell a single lie.
Omaha, Consulting and Daniels succeeded evolutionarily.
Old Crowe hired four day laborers to remove his downstairs bath tub, dig a hole thirty feet under his building, install a secret phone-booth-sized room down there, create a hydraulic door to close his bath tub over the hole, wrapped the day laborers in plastic, murdered them with an exacto knife, composted them, went to Whole Foods, waited till his new fiancée was fast asleep, went deep down into his secret room, tried a thin slice of roasted pork, didn’t like it, didn’t finish it, threw up what he swallowed, set charges in the room and along the tunnel, demoed the room and the hole, made a quinoa smoothie, and went back to bed. Started a clothing company with Kelso in the morning.
Everchill Taylor experimented with heroin, silky lingerie and bicycle accidents.
Consulting signed the original Port Huron statement.
Nuke fucked up the email chain.
Outlaw’s whereabouts: unknown.

Toddamus: I hope everyone’s not giving you too hard of a time.
Black Label: That’s what she said.
Toddamus: Shut up, Tom.
B. Cooper: If you were Neo, would you’ve chosen the red pill or the blue pill?
B. Cooper: [wrinkles face, rubs chin, drives his house up and down Ocean Beach, parks, rubs chin, repeats, clears throat] Well, there’s just no way to know until you’re in that situation.
Black Label: Sabathia’s looking shar—
Laser Show: Damnit, Tom! [stands up, leaves room] We can’t sit in silence for just one weekend?
Autocorrect: Wanna find a better team?
Lorenzo Gigante: I don’t know. We already got the jerseys.
Laser Show: I said break TODD’s arm.
Tu-Lin: My mistake.
Daniels, text on Thursday, 7 pm: Ocean Beach, run or bike?

John Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck. No seriously. He didn’t even show up
John Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck. (No seriously. He didn’t even show up). Danger has better things to do on a Sunday afternoon, like giving everyone free beer, surfing Cliphunter until it’s time to inject his Winstrol, taking key bumps in the storage room at Liberties, and looking at new pictures of brown art on Sam’s phone. While those are certainly questionable priorities, it sounds like a lot more fun than Section 925’s Sunday afternoon spent working on group projects, playing his podcast, and sexting Autocorrect’s chubby ex co-workers….spare me!
Luckily for both of them the Blue Claws didn’t show up either and the game looked a lot like the train being run simultaneously on Avra at Coachella (pictures to come). Lorenzo Gigante got thru 6 innings on 54 pitches and used more effort for his jaw dropping Shart timed perfectly during the final pitch-A nice tribute to his girlfriend for coming out.
Lorenzo Gigante- 6 Innings, 54 pitches and another near perfect performance that stays intact with the 9-3 putout that almost was.
Nuke Kalush- 1 Inning and no runs but he assured us he could go 2 or 3 innings if needed. Jake Taylor has the icepack ready should his lips swell up against the Topes next Sunday
Homewrecker: Mammoth double that easily would have been out had Karma not kicked up the winds as punishment for fucking everyone’s wife.
Toddamus-Finally realizing we aren’t Cal State Fullerton and our 3 hitter doesn’t bunt……EVER.
Ronnie Coleman- Hard single in his first at bat in 8 years proving that hitting is just like riding a pussy elevator. Bonus points for introducing Rizzo to the Babe Ruth.
Autocorrect-2-4 with a great Willie Mayes Hayes Impersonation
Nuke Kalush- Bases clearing double on a foul ball which will surely be used as evidence for more AB’s.
Outlaw Chu- Nail in the Blue Claws coffin with a double down the line
Larceny- How the Tsunami ever score running the bases this way?
Nuke- Minus 1 for running a hard 90 right past 2nd base when a slide makes you safe by a mile- Further evidence that you should embrace being a pitcher.

Jon Danger Hirsch Does Not Give a Fuck What Hand You Throw With
Jon Danger Hirsch Does Not Give a Fuck What Hand You Throw With
What? Where am I? Why are you here? We’re playing the traitors? Now? Really? I just went to bed, asshole! You say we’re down Tu-Lin and Larson? And they have a lefty on hill? And I have to hit?!?! What’s the scouting report Jake? Wait, fuck that, we have to stop for coffee! I will not play without coffee… and beef jerky…
Sure, he might whine about it, but truthfully Danger does not care who we are playing, how they throw, or what color the rulebook is. He wakes*. He rakes. He jingles and jangles down to first with the same shit eating grin of a man who knows that his success is truly, unequivocally, genuinely ironic. Unlike those Shawn Kemp jersey wearing hoopsters… his #22 is legit, original and screams to the world: “I raked today, but you know, whatever. It woulda been just as cool if I hadn’t.”
Toddamus on the other hand, does not share Danger’s reckless willingness to drop the dick at all costs. He sees a lefty and decides that the best way to show his respect, is to bunt. Or at least try to. I mean, what’s the point in swinging? When a guy throws from the devil’s side of the hill, you’re clearly better off just giving yourself up. It’s the right baseball play!
Fortunately for this team of masturbating marauders, Bradley Cooper is not here to bunt. He brought his braj all the way to Oakland, so he might as well swing it around**. Got leather? Yeah, he’s got that too. Might as well flash it. Clean uni? Screw it. He can park the EB Edition outside of the ‘mat this week. Gotta get to the #ship, even if it runs you a few quarters for extra detergent. Sure, Sure.
Bump Kings -

Nuke - We’ve all been down this road before… wisdom teeth come in, don’t quite fit, and need to be removed… it happens to just about everyone… WHEN THEY ARE FUCKING 12! Who misses Rivalry Week to go to the goddamn dentist?!?! This couldn’t wait until September? Maybe do it on a weekend off? No. Rivarly Week. Thank god he didn’t tweet pictures of all the hand-crafted ice cream he ate to soothe his irritated jowels at Che What. The. Fuck!?!?

John Danger Hirsch Will NOT Take Your Charity
John Danger Hirsch (& LaserShow) Will NOT Take Your Charity
Look guys, they were getting screwed. It’s not like the guy deserved to get tossed. And so what if the guy at the plate was the only dude in their lineup to make solid contact all day? Who cares? It’s rec baseball. Let’s strike this fucker out. Fine.
So sure, you forced us to take an out to start the 9th. Thanks. But we do not want to win that way. It’s not sporting. Here, you go to first… and YOU go to first… and YOU go to first! Now it’s a fucking baseball game. Someone call Gus Johnson, ‘cause this shit just got real.
Bump Kings –
Fraser. Didn’t break a sweat. Was ready to get loose for the save… no stats… because we all know that for the big guy, the only stat that matters is WINS.*
Practice? We’re talkin’ ‘bout practice? Homewrecker wake up, shoos away the once virginal to be bride, and swings the goddamn dick. So take your condescending emails and shove it, Jake.
Flashing Leather –
T. A brisket well earned. Bailing the drama queens out with a 4-3 double play to end the game.
Larceny; or How the Tsunami Ever Score Running the Bases This Way is Beyond Comprehension –
LaserShow (-4). At 3rd. With Todd up. And no outs. At least he said he was sorry.
What the Fuck? –
2-Hole goes Kelly Leak on routine pop-up to Jake... from 3rd base. Knocking out Jake’s front teeth in the process. Larson, concerned for personal safety, calls Tom off on next deep fly to right. (Only upshot, the first appearance of the Lorenzo Gigante “My Teammates are Not Worthy” face. We missed you too, big guy!) So seriously 2-Hole… What. The. Fuck.
Disabled List –
Sources say, Tu-Lin, attempting to dunk a women’s basketball over a midget, comes up 2 feet short of the rim, trips over said little person and tries to pull off the old one-handed landing. Bad move, Kelli Strug. 6 pins later, and we have the best one armed scorekeeper money can buy. Big thanks to Poppa Larry for the late night update.
Larry – “Compound left arm fracture. At Kaiser now..
Jake – “Is this for real?”
Larry – “Too real.”
Jake - /Chokes on own foot
Larry – Tu-Lin is looking forward to opening day....for 2014. He's threatening to become a pitcher now. I think it's the morphine talking.
Toddamus – YES! Morphine! Its about damn time.
Tu-Lin - what's the going rate for home brews vs. 5mg oxy tablets?

John Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about selling out.
Not to Mike, not to Matty, not to me, not to anyone did he ever once say, “Hey, boys, let’s go out this 2012 campaign and focus on winning some integrity awards.”
So Danger doesn’t care that the 2012 Tsunami so completely, so definitively sold out their legacy of Clemente award winners and character guys and poor men’s Jim Abbott’s. He’s fine that management decided their lust for even a blood-stained shot at the ship meant welcoming the likes of clutch-hitting sodomites, known drug abusers, hog-tying perverts, homophobes who like gay people, winking-emoticon junkies, and fifth-grade math teachers.
But this past off-season at the devil’s market wasn’t the end of the story, and it also wasn’t the beginning. So let’s rewind, take our time and do the job right. Let’s.
In the beginning there was the Godfather, and the Godfather wanted to pay baseball. So he did. And he was fucking good. He threw 85 on the mound and scared the shit out of all the batters, most who were half his size. Then he pinched the wrong tail, perhaps a niece of the baseball gods; or maybe he fleeced one of their sons in a card game, maybe in a saloon at the crossroads of Cooperstown and hell; no one knows for certain the dooming deed, but in any case the baseball gods struck down upon his mighty right shoulder and took away 33 mph of his speed. So he gave up the baseball, gave up his love of seeing sawdust in a hitter’s hands and of painting the black with electric guitar.
Then one day the Godfather played catch with a ranging Assyrian, and he saw that, though slowed, his stuff was still moving. He could change speeds with his spinner. He could repeat his delivery. He realized he wanted to play baseball again, gods of the diamond be damned.
So he started a fucking league, named it SFuckingNABA. And he pitched for the Fog. And other teams came and joined this league, SFuckingNABA.
The fifth team to join this league was straightforwardly named Team Five by their straightforward empirical steward, Old Crowe. Crowe didn’t eat meat then or now and he didn’t want any meatheads on his Team Five. He wanted good strong non-religious-Mormon-like ballplayers and he wanted them to be even better citizens off the field than they were players on it. Yes, before you jest, some years this was easier than others, largely due to the quality of performance on Saturdays in Big Rec, not because of any vile acts later those nights.
But Team Five struck gold with a few draft picks and lottery ticket free-agent signings, and by the time the Omahas and Epsteins and Brills and Jake Taylors were in their prime, Old Crowe had decided to call them his Tsunami. Above his bed, in green and black magic marker, he painstakingly (hour after hour for weeks, mind you, laying on his back atop scaffolding just inches from the ceiling) scratched his own Sistine chapel, his Mona Lisa, his vegetarian roar in standard urban-American graffiti font, his battlecry to the entire SFuckingNABA in just two words:
(this was all long before hash marks#)
And for awhile there were many regular season victories for the Tsunami, even against the Godfather and his off-speed sorcery for the demon Fog. And sometimes there were post-game beers, team bbqs, a golfing day here and there. There was even a game at what they called Pac Bell Park way back then. Ooh-ooh, and let’s not forget: there was a hot girl! Mel. She played right field. Didn’t hit so much. But cute! Nice! And even after she hung up her cleats and sports bra, she’d come to the game and she’d bring her hot younger sister too.
All seemed well enough in the Tsunami region of SFuckingNABAland, one opening-round playoff loss seen as a sign of hope, of more playoffs to come, a beginning, certainly not an end. But then the dormant evil that lurked in some of the newest and unchecked Tsunami came out of the space behind their computer desks and revealed itself as Bay Socks. Yes, the horror! Multiple lotion-coated, semen-crusted Bay Socks dropped their Tsunami robes and revealed their true identities, leaving the side of good and light to form their own collection, the team now known forever in history as the Bay Sox.
And they did it like a week before the 2006 season, the cheesedicks.
At this point, gentle reader, I ask you to kindly fight any temptation towards sympathy. This is not a double-feature on Lifetime and it’s not a CBS Sunday Night Special. This was real life, and the real fucking Tsunami didn’t turtle, they regrouped the management, rebuilt the roster and reloaded the fun-cannon that they’d been spraying all over SFuckingNABAland for the past few seasons.

SF Tsunami Impregnate NABA Playoffs
Congrats boys, but don’t expect a fucking certificate when 60% of the teams in this league make the playoffs. However, unlike Danger we did actually clinch a berth this week and that’s something to feel good about. If only because it doesn’t mean a frantic dash to Safeway for some emergency contraception.
Lot of storylines this week: Free Brazzers, Danger an almost father, Bradley Cooper’s flirtation with TST, Abbot “The Artist” dying a slow married-life death, Laser losing a footrace to third base to a fat guy for the fourth out in an frighteningly accurate real life metaphor for his dating life, and most important….wait for it…the triumphant return of our All-Star Catcher who we were lucky to win a single game without.
We also played a baseball game this week. Winning 11-1 is fucking fun, right? I don’t know what got into you guys but we lit up the Heroes like a Japanese business man’s face in the Castro on a Saturday night. Apparently, Dan thought I would use the occasion to make culturally insensitive references about Pearl Harbor, Karaoke, and/or Anime porn but he underestimates me. Instead, Tommy and I bridged the divide and honored them later that night with a Bud Light Sake Bomb for every run we scored. We are the world, you guys.

Jon Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about two months ago
Jon Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about two months ago, he lives in the here and now. A game blog from May? Please. Whole families of herpes have moved from under his yellowed, muddied Jockeys to Rizzo’s pencil stache in less time. So let’s let LG catch us up to 3/4 of a season and get back to real time: Cuba, hookers at fishbowl, trannies at Circa, Hirsch comment of the year, LG pregame week tirades on here, Jim’s pot tragedy, Abbott bomba, my cat-like barehand, Cam’s hook slide, screeching cunt fans, ba(na)2, Bradley cooper outbursts, Abbotts mid STRIDE outburst.
Yep, that about does it.
The rest is just details:
Tsunami 11, Black Sox 2
Please, your grumpy veteran right fielder does not like suggestions on his outfield positioning. But in retrospect, the extended mid-play ball-chasing bird made it all worthwhile.
Tsunami 12, Black Sox 2
How do you teach that ball who’s boss? Throw it into the ground, motherfucker! Give that bitch a taste of the turf. (yes, I know this was actually game 1, with Rizzo covering first, but nothing at all happened game 2). Oh shit, I almost forgot: there was this: My name is Kirby Daniels, and I’m a rally killer. And my name is Black Label, and I’m a rally killer. (even if Omaha correctly pointed out he was balking)
Tsunami 13, Blue Claws 4
It doesn’t matter if the wool has big boobies and a purple dress, you guys. If the wool sounds like Fran Drescher riding a seatless bike down a cobblestone hill, she’s not worth it. PASS.
Phitans 3, Tsunami 0
My name is Rizzo, and I’m a rally-killer.
My name is Black Label, and I’m a rally-killer.
Tsunami 2, Sea Lions 1
Wait, that’s a fair ball. WHAT? How is that ball foul? THAT’S A FAIR BALL! FAIR BALL! HOW IS THAT BALL FOUL?
Tsunami 13, Sea Lions 4
My name is Jake Taylor, and I’m a rally-killer. (Of course, this one isn’t fair. The truth is the umpire totally fucked Coach over. Totally. Truthfully. For real. I’M BEING DEAD FUCKING SERIOUS HERE, YOU GUYS. THERE’S ABSOLUTELY NO WAY COACH SHOULD BE EXPECTED TO TAKE ONE MODICUM OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR GETTING CAUGHT STEALING FIRST. None. Let’s just drop this. I’m so sick of you guys not getting the point. AND THERE’S NO WAY COACH WOULD AIR OUT A TEAMMATE IN THE SAME POSITION. None. Moving on.)
Tsunami 3, Dons 2
Tom is the worst. Tom is the best. (note: he’s still the worst)
Tsunami 10, Benders 3
Every time you sleep with a midget, you get an infield single.
Benders 7, Tsunami 1
The one solid single? Outlaw Chu. Fuckin A right, buddy. The only other single? Daniels. (yikes)
Apologies To . . .
Tu-Lin surfing all over Moscone basepaths like Kelly Slater . . . Rizzo dominating Black Sox, Sea Lions and Benders in just under 800 pitches . . . Lawn walk-off versus Sea Lions . . . Coach going yard . . . Candidate for defensive play of the year: Lawn walk-off dive and throw for DP vs. Dons . . . Black Label unconscious hitting every game . . . Toddamus/Tu-Lin back-to-back doubles to erase Black Label’s baserunning trouble vs. Dons . . . Daniels current five-game hit streak . . . Coach perfect clutch throw to third for DP vs. Dons . . . Bradley Cooper and Toddamus BOTH covering bag, receiving throw, blocking runner . . . Danger jamming vs. Sea Lions . . . Tu-Lin hitting ball onto Lincoln Ave. vs. Sea Lions, thrown out at third . . . Tu-Lin intentionally walked!. . . Toddamus boning Jersey Shore-like whore in bathroom at The Gaslight Anthem concert. . . Black Label falling apart at SS, but hitting a double after every single error (decent trade) . . . HE PUT HIS HANDS UP AND HE SAID HE THREW THE BALL . . . Did Connor just come? . . . Black Label only one with energy to get us rallying vs. Sea Lions . . . Daniels showing off bod versus Sea Lions . . . Danger looking good behind a PBR can . . . LG shutout at Kan-Jam . . . Utter Toddamus/Daniels Kan-Jam dominance . . . LLLLLLLLLuuuunnnnddddyyyy . . . frustrated Black Label beaning innocent pedestrian with shoe . . . (For The Readers: Have I missed anything?)
Now that all that is finally over, Let’s Travel Together On Tsunami Twitter Shitter, Shall We, And See What We’ve Learned This Season?
The 2012 Tsunami Know MLB:
Quinoa: Chipper fucking jones.
Daniels: Professional hitter.
Autocorrect: And hooter waitress impregnator.
Daniels: Pujols coming up with the biggest set of HR blue balls in MLB history.
Coach Taylor: Best 42 y/o season on the books tho.
Rizzo: Check the Pujols profile o my site. The elephant balls should match nicely with this horse cock.
Rizzo: I just don’t get what you guys see in sports. I’ll take the Kardashians all day.
Autocorrect: Weaver at 87-89 throws a no no. I think Fraser should make a comeback. Kenny Powers style!
Rizzo: This woman in the waiting room is white fucking noise. Thank god they just called her in. I was about to go all delmon young on her hass.
Black Label: Nahh go dimitri young . . . as she’s going by just CRACK with a bat.
Rizzo: I think you’re referring to Randall Simon
Black Label: Ahh yes… The idea still remains . . . Hit and run.
Black Label: Any of you fellas heard of this Josh Hamilton kid? Decent looking swing, he could be a player someday.
LG: Must’ve backdoored a groupie.
Black Label: Or a Viking. That’s what the greeks do.
Auto: Just at doctor’s. Height 5’8 weight 197lbs. Paul LoDuca plays for the Tsunami! Auto: Woulda been taller but my Dad pulled put.
Auto: We should sign Jamie Moyer. Just got released.
Daniels: He’s a year older than Consulting tho
Coach Taylor: And I throw harder
Daniels: Cano should wear earplugs and have his mom throw next time.
Rizzo: They quoted him after saying he was having trouble seeing his dads bp cuz it was coming in so much harder than Bruce Chen's.
The 2012 Tsunami Know Women
Vinnie Chase: This girl just told Rizzo he blew it
Vinnie Chase: And he did the dance
LG: Surprising Tom has garnered so many nicknames and none involve butt sex. God does work in mysterious ways.
Daniels: You talking about Back Door?
Auto: On the shuttle next to a humongous chick right now that smells like locker room. Should I get the team out of our slump?
Danger: We talking rally hog size?
Auto: Yeah rally hog size. Thanks for sitting next to me sweetheart. Now my face is pressed against the class.
Consulting: Bernice is badass
Consulting: She performs….. Hardcore
Consulting: She I’d fucking 86
Consulting: Is that is. Autocorrect
LG: Is Jim saying he would bang Bernice? Can we get a ruling on the field here?
Consulting: She is hot
Consulting: Seriously. Could imagine an 86 year old vagina?
Consulting: That’s hogging
LG: Lot of history there
Rizzo: Been thru 2 world wars
Consulting: Could you even imagine. She came out of a vagina shorty after WW1
Consulting: Fucking WW. Prussia and shit
Rizzo: You’re talking Model T pussy
Consulting: Ya buddy
Auto: Whoaaaa hahaahahaha. Just opened this up. Not to mention what big red could probably do once she took out her teeth and went to town
Auto: The x ray said Chlymidia? Weird!
Taylor: Who hit in the 2-hole last night?
Daniels: I hogged on pornhub
Taylor: Daniels jumped on a virtual grenade!
Taylor: Bananas smell bad
Danger: So do vaginas but you don’t hear me complaining when I get some that’s moist.
Autocorrect: My kitchen smells like an old lady farted piss.
Danger: Sluts work. The bigger the better.
Black Label: We got some OK looking fattties that just walked in.
Black Label: Hirsch I said FATTIES
Daniels: FATTIES = VICTORY
Rizzo: That was one of the hottest girls I’ve ever seen in sf. Yes she looked like a hooker. Yes I find hookers extremely attractive.
Rizzo: Refried beans and baby corn. What’s the saying? The way to a woman’s heart is thru her colon.
Black Label: Sadly I have to say Sal was completely right… No girl that hot will ever be fucked up enough or dumb enough to sleep with me.
Auto: Btw there is nothing better than watching baseball on the 4th of July. Unless you are watching baseball while getting a blowjob on the 4th of July
Lawn: I watched 4 lesbians on top of a bus stop finger bang each other Saturday night. Not quite the same as u see online. A little dissapointed.
Danger: I was balls deep in a old fashioned NYC Jewish rally hog last night so I did my part. Come on you guys.
Autocorrect: Fuck let's go boys. Tom buttfuck something for the game winner. (Editor’s Note: Tom hit HR next inning.)
Fuck The Baseball!: I just yelled "wool here" in a hotel lobby. I think they missed the point... They all looked at me, not the "scenery". Weird...
LG: Where is the embarrassment of blog riches that was promised btw?!
Black Label: Agreed. There hasn't been adequate public humiliation of my social life in a while
LG: Seriously. Just a bunch of recycled quotes from old movies and a couple of volume shooters laying a house made of bricks.
Toddamus: You can't get pregnant from special no hitter sex
Danger: I got hustled out of 40 bucks by two whores from Reno. They said they were Australian and I look like Channing tatum. Waschoe county hookers are the wooorrrrsssstt.
The 2012 Tsunami Know Racism
Rizzo: I’m all in on squirts tonight.
Taylor: I heard you were seeking purple vag.
Auto: I’ve beer had chocolate but I want a taste so bad
Auto (3 hours later): Wow. Glad this is group me and not twitter.
Daniels: Im packing and leaving for the baseball mecca tomorrow
Vinnie Chase: Cubrir su pendejo
Daniels: Abre su mente
Auto: I love how my autocorrect turns “tons” into “Tina” but yet it leaves Dildo alone
Auto: As in “the bachelor dildo’d Tina who’s real name was Lashawda”
Black Label: No autorcorrect suggestions for Lashsawda I see
Auto: Apparently my phone is black
Auto: And Hirsch that is the best comment of the day. Jews are born funny like black guys are born fast. The same way my Mexcian ass can get a girl pregnant by looking her in the eye.
LG (12:45 AM): N##### pimp just tried to cramp my style…if u think that’s happening u got another one coming
LG (12:47 AM): Sorry I’m not sorry about the racial terms. I will racially discriminate equally.
LG (2:21 PM): Apologize for the N bomb last night.
Auto: Fuck I’m more late than a Mexican teenager, Almost there boys.
Autocorrect: At an Indian Casino in Roseville. This is the exact opposite of Avicii. No wool and nothing but rednecks, degenerates, and gambling old asian people
Autocorrect: $225 up. I'll take these engines money all day baby.
Autocorrect: And throw in a chew of redman just to be a dick!
Daniels: FYi: the asian morgan doppelganger works at tokyo gogo
Hot, you guys
Coach: I miss morgan
Rizzo: I miss puddles
Autocorrect: That one chocolate face looked bigger than Bo Jackson. They had some other guys that looked solid too.
The 2012 Tsunami Know Friendship
Rizzo: Hey Tom are you saving those chips that are still on the couch from the burritos we bought last Saturday or do you mind if I throw them out?
Daniels: Carozz pls confirm you were wearing a tucked in shirt last night!
Back Door: He’s not even awake.
Rizzo: Fuck you Hirsch
Fuck Those Gusys: A missing Rizzo, an emotional Daniels, and Abbott wandering around talking to himself . .. They sure did put us in a fog yesterday huh??
Auto: So my girlfriend wakes up and goes “holy shit I had a dream that Fraser realized he was gay after he kissed a guy”
Auto: My response: I’ve known that for awhile.
Daniels: Laser you sick fuck you bought my tent
Rizzo: I didn’t have butt sex I swear
Rizzo: The double donga!? What the fuck did I do to deserve this guys?!
Rizzo: I’m blaming it on Tom either way.
Black Label: Rule #2 of 3: it’s always Tom’s fault.
Auto: Wow I’m wearing it right now
Rizzo: Sal clearly doesn’t understand how the program works.
Rizzo: And btw I’m calling a glass company today to come fix the door in our apartment that you shattered. And you’re paying for it. I’ve given you 5 weeks.
Black Label: Completely fair
Black Label: That recipe is a goddamn family secret!!!
Danger: Didn’t OD. Been resting up in my masterbatorium for tsunami party tm. I miss the shit out of you guys. I’m free after sundown tomorrow night.
Rizzo: He’s back!
Danger: Or if anyone wants to get cultural tomorrow I’ll be hosting challah and blow at my house.
Danger: I mean challah and brisket
Danger: Wait no I don’t
Black Label: Consulting, bring beer (me, I have cash to repay you so don't be stingy) and weed (Daniels and Rizzo)
Black Label: No other takers for the tickets?
Rizzo: Sorry Tom. All booked up. Currently getting high as the northern lights then from 5-6 fappin under my roommates covers then problem drinking from 6 to close.
Rizzo: Booked solid.
Danger: I’m not ready to hear Abbott bitch about being hungover after having a glass or two of really expensive whiskey when I shitcan plastic flasks of whiskey every weekend. Sorry just won’t have it you guys.
Quinoa: New guy has a Xmas wreath on his front door. Good or bad?
LG: I’m anything but sweet but I’d take the ball before or after you any day, just as long as we got to war together
Rizzo: HOO-RAH MOTHER FUCKERS!
Auto: Wow Fraser really gobbled the cock there
LG: Shut up Tom, I see you typing
Rizzo: LG, I'm ready to party. I'm in the mish alone though cuz Hirsch said let's party then made dinner plans
Coach: May all your siblings fuck hogs with republican hippie parents with no sense of their own ironic retardation.
Rizzo: Tom. We can never. Ever. Eat those wings again.
Rizzo: Hey Tommy quit spelling everything correctly I have no fucking idea what you're saying.
LG: Dan missed Abbott's bomba, Rizzo absent for Tom's yahtzee. This means I'm due next time Tommy misses a game to go raving, right?
Rizzo: Toms hit some big home runs in his career. Fucked some real uggos too.
Autocorrect: If we played a game without a base running mistake that would defy quantum physics and tear a hole in the universe
Autocorrect: But I'll settle for Tom D tear holes in buttholes and hitting game winning hits! That a baby!
Lawn: He's tearing midget butt holes
Daniels: He will live Forever
Black Label: Abbott has a fetish for Loren's bowel movements. #Abbottfacts
Autocorrect: We should ease Steve in on the group me. He seems like a nice upstanding guy. He might run for the hills
Autocorrect: Abbot could totally jerk off to Fraser's picture tonight
Autocorrect: I saw at our BBQ we have two races. Our "fast guys" and all the Jake Taylors
Jake Taylor: There is nothing tragic about my wheels.
Autocorrect: My strategy is to have Dan throw his hands up and tell you it's a false start so Ivan run away with it
Danger: Listen you guys. I just got home from work. Sorry I didn't get back to you tommy but I just turned down a fat line primo booger suger cause I know we have to play 2 tomorrow. If that's not dedication then I don't don't what is. I fucking love you guys. Abbott bring a bucket of water tomorrow morning.
Black Label: Can anyone confirm (1) Tommy is alive or (2) if he's incarcerated? This lack of response is beginning to cause concern.
LG: Be careful what you wish for. I fully anticipate a nauseating flurry of annoying EDC texts, FB updates, and emails about how EPIC the underage rave was and how much electronic music fills his soul with ecstasy.
Rizzo: Wish someone could hang out at sfo with me so I didn't feel like such a piece of shit.
The 2012 Tsunami Know Work
Autocorrect: I’m being pretty productive at work today and it’s dri
vin me nuts. Distraction please!!!!

Rizzo: This is an abomination Sal.
Autocorrect: I forwarded the entire text. It formatted weird because it’s group me.
Rizzo: All I know is a mouse fucked a cat.
Auto: I have no idea how I am at my office right now. Vegas definitely won that fight!
Daniels: Cmon boys keep the posts coming. I’m dying at a violin and cello recital.
Auto: That sounds like I’d rather pop Tex Damn than go to that.
Autocorrect: Reason #500 why My office reminds me of when I played for the Baysox. Eating a team lunch and I say " yeah they should stock up the kitchen with 5 hour energy so we don't get food comas" And guy next to me says " what if you took 5 at the same time, I mean there's only 24 hours in a day so it would defy quantum physics and you might put a hole in the universe" Everyone dies laughing like its a Fraser quote. I replied "try taking 5 packets of bath salts."
Autocorrect: No. I would rather text you guys than join in the conversation taking place at the next table on my lunch break
Coach: Are we all shitting at the same time?
The 2012 Tsunami Know Demon Spawn
Rizzo: At the docs trying to talk him into stickin a needle in me to deftertilize my demon scapula spawn.
Daniels: Guest blogger: demon spawn.
Auto: That thing looks like the little guy in Total Recall Coming out the stomach . . .”Quaid ……. Quaid !!!”
Rizzo: Tried to stick a needle in it.
Rizzo: It bled but nothing really newsworthy.
Quinoa: Pics or it didn’t happen
Auto: I just threw up . . . why didn’t the doc drain baby Quaid?
Quinoa: Hung dam lives to see another day
Rizzo: Wasn't a pimple dick it was the devil's spawn because my cut fastball that day was from hell.
Danger: Was there a little after-shock puss left in the tent after the initial mount saint hung eruption?
Rizzo: Also, Abbott, if I hadn't lined the basepaths till 4 am with danger the evening before then let hung dam serve up cockshots in his swan song outing we would have won by 8. There is but one person to blame for that and he burst in Boonville.
The 2012 Tsunami Know The Truth
Coach: We need an exorcism of the second base bag
The 2012 Tsunami Know Fitness
Taylor (12:41 pm): Goin for a run. Hope I don’t die.
Taylor (1:35 pm): Run complete. 4 miles. Still alive. I could drink 1,000 beers you guys.
Quinoa: You averaged 10 minutes per mile.
LG: Where do I begin? First off this has been a most enjoyable thread, especially considering the fucking wasteland it’s been since we had an actual game and gave a fuck. Your welcome for the compliment btw. Second, Hirsch just chimed in with the fucking quote of the year, honoring a long tradition of funny Jews. Third, are we getting back to winning games, taking names, wearing jorts, blowing lines, and telling everyone else to suck it like we used to? BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT I FUCKING SIGNED UP FOR!!!
Worth A Second Look
Coach Taylor: Bananas smell bad
Danger: So do vaginas but you don’t hear me complaining when I get some that’s moist.
These Things Were Said, Too, But Out Loud or Email:
Cooper: “I just can’t get enough Salvaterrio, man. Ah, he’s like a drug.”
Cooper: “Tommy’s in Vegas? This team is an absolute mess.”
Tu-Lin: “Games I will miss: July 14th. July 28th. August 4th. I will be back for the playoffs though. After 10 days of boozing in Mexico. I hear that settles one in the box though.”
Cooper: Just wake up and get through the day. That’s my philosophy. Just grind.”
Cooper: “Moving out of my car next Sunday, man. My life is on the up and up.”
Your Little Known Tsunami Historical Fact of the Week:
The silver lining to Coach’s CS-1B? Omaha Morton: still the only Tsunami with a successful S-1B. Against the Benders, no less. Two years ago.

John Danger Hirsch doesn’t give a fuck about his personal hygiene
John Danger Hirsch doesn't give a fuck about his personal hygiene, gentlemen, but he does care about team unity, sacrifice, support and good baseball karma. And your hygiene. So Danger will not abide us skirting the issue: jock itch is a yeast infection. Ok? Same thing as the ladies, yeah, just what happens on innies vs. outies. So don't blame the jorts. Clearly the jorts had momentum, rally and heart. Just too bad Autocorrect's and Vinnie Chase's yeast infections prevented them from jorting with the rest of the team. Chronic bad karma. Thanks for failing to unite with your team and pissing off the baseball gods who then sent us umpires who got rejected from Tulane.
Fog 4, Tsunami 3
We blew it.
Fog 15, Tsunami 14
We blew it. But then we unblew it. Then we blew it again. But then we couldn't unblow it enough.
For The Team
Jake Taylor: That infield had been looking to hit somebody all day, and finally it was Coach who had the courage to stand up and head-butt it right in the eyes between first and second base. Learn, dirt. Back off next time.
There are no hill heroes in a loss.
Big Hot Sticks
See Bump Kings.
See Sticks, Big Hot.
We suck at running the bases, you guys. Suck. We’re not even close to poor, bad or underwhelming. We tease and taunt and tickle and then polish and swallow a big fat baserunning dick. Fact. Both games could’ve been won without two players getting doubled off of second on hits to the outfield.
Saying let’s got station to station, be conservative, having LG yell at everyone don’t seem to work. So let's try a new approach and have a fun review of Tsunami stealing Base Cuatro over the years.
Tsunami with NON-effective SFNABA steals of home:
2010: Jake Taylor, perhaps confusing the characters of Major League, putting a bright bow on a 22-3 loss to end the 2010 season with Danger at bat, two outs, 2-0 count. Situation: Danger's third at-bat of the season. Catcher tagged him, well, let’s say closer to home than third. Money quote, Danger: "Are you SERIOUS, MIKE?"
2011: Laser, at Moscone, in the sandbox. Almost safe. Very close play. Definitely ten feet closer to home than Coach Taylor. Situation: bases loaded, two outs, down 1. Guy who looks a lot like Bradley Fucking Cooper at the plate. Money quote, Danger: "DON'T SWING, DON'T SWING! DON"T SWING!"
Tsunami with effective SFNABA steals of home:
2007: Daniels. Callahan had the slowest wind-up in the league and Daniels had just been traded by Rowe to the Artichoke Joe’s of San Bruno for one game. No player to be named later. Daniels, with five game sfor the Tsunami under his belt, was none to happy with Old Quinoa Rowe about the trade and decided to hit a triple onto the softball field at Moscone. He then looked Strong Wang square in the eye and requested the green light if his former and future teammate Callahan went from the windup. As anyone who’s found themselves at the bottom of a pack of Chesterfields in a San Bruno casino come daybreak can attest, Wang does not shy away from the gamble. “Go,” was all he said. Safe by a mile. Fuck you, Tsunami. FU, Rowe. Artichoke Joe’s 4, Tsunami 3.
These Things Were Said Somewhere in the Tsunami Stratosphere Sometime Remotely Close to This Game
Carozza: “Embrace your hogs, boys, they will feed you come winter.”
Black Label: “I'm not sure I agree. If he was stealing home, why is there no panicked screaming of "DON'T SWING!! DON'T SWING!!!!" by the runner as he comes down the line??
Autocorrect: “So since we're having a "I fucked a fat chick.....not anonymous" meeting I figured I would show you the fat pig I roasted. We nicknamed her Margaret Chow.”
Autocorrect: “I also know Frasers worst moment. She has orangutang titties and bug eyes.”
Autocorrect: “Jason Hirsch is to the Marina as Tommy Salvatierra is to the Mission.”
Danger: “Fuck you Timmy Salvatierra”
Autocorrect: “I feel like this team is helping solve some inter SF neighborhood hatred. It's like remember the titans . . . . . except we're all white.”
