Gentle Clowns predicted to send Dirty Birds back to university-subsidized nest in tears

first_imgComing off an upset victory over the Dirty Birds just a year ago — and it is only referred to an upset simply because the Birds were so upset over their loss that they decided to throw entire pitchers of beer at the opposition — the Gentle Clowns are more than ready to defend their title in the annual softball game Saturday.While the Dirty Birds went through a brief era of success, the Gentle Clowns finally managed to breakthrough in last year’s event, but with the majority of the talent from last year’s squad doing bigger and better things, the Clowns will look to revamp the roster to assert that last year wasn’t just a fluke.This year’s squad will be captained by sports editors Nick “I’m two degrees of separation from Mark Cuban” Brazzoni and Eric “Goldy the staff turkey” Goldsobel. In last year’s outing, Goldsobel played prolifically in center field while Brazzoni was a late scratch from the outing because he got too drunk and refused to leave the keg alone.“I don’t understand why Nick is listed first,” Goldy whined.Rounding out the infield will be the power arts duo of Henry “Where is the closest Urban?” Solotaroff-Weber and Frankie “Where’s my bunny?” Hermanek, along with catcher Yusra “Yurso dumb B.o.B.” Murad, who plans to distract the Dirty Bird batters with her wit as she compares their body types to the animals at Henry Vilas Zoo. Her partner in crime, Aaron “Crapz ‘N’ Carrotz” Hathaway is listed as questionable, as he may be out searching for castles and bomb shelters somewhere in Madison or a bathroom to analyze.Among other team leaders will be the powerful upper management trio of Aliya “EVERYONE TAKE A SHOT” Iftikhar, Rachael “When the fuck is Beyoncé’s album going to be released I’ve already used up two free TIDAL trials” Lallensack and Briana “I really don’t like this opinion story” Reilly.A fourth member is potentially set to be added to the trio, as Hayley “I went to space last summer, what did you do?” Sperling is set to take over The Badger Herald as the new Editor-in-Chief. While she has been practicing her chugging for weeks now, she has also been working to get the game broadcasted in space because she swears she is an astronaut.“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOZ and NAAAASSSSAAAAAAA,” Sperling said while chugging a Kül Premium.Luke “Pretzel” Schaetzel swears he’ll be in attendance but it’s more than likely he’ll show up 30 minutes late due to a hangover after a late night out with his buddy Ron (Diaz) because that is literally his only friend.“But dude, you should have been at my party,” Pretzel said as he knocks all the doorknobs off of Goldy’s doors. “Every single athlete that ever existed was in attendance — I swear!!”Should Schaetzel fail to show, Aaron “Luke put these stories in here” Reilly will be sure to fill in and take all the blame for Schaetzel’s miscues as he has grown used to doing on a regular basis, while Phil “I manage to never get yelled at” Michaelson will quietly prove he’s actually the best player on the team … by far.Rounding out the dangerous Clown squad outfield will be Teymour “Take you out” Tomsyck, Riley “I’m running out of cover ideas” Vetterkind and Connor “One time I lit myself on fire” Dugan, while Saturday’s inactives will include video editor Nyal “Still looking for a new house to film a BH Cribz at” Mueenuddin, banter associate Nolan “Still trying to find out what the difference between a JPG and a JPG 2000 is” Ferlic and social media coordinator Kevin “Can’t risk missing the surprise release of TurboGrafx 16” Castro.Self-Proclaimed Old Guy Polo Rocha will probably show up unannounced.“Branding and stuff,” Polo said as he is seven beers deep with a bacon costume on counting his gray hairs.It’s most likely that photo editors Marissa “Are these pics good for Instagram?” Haegele and Katie “Wearing a cool hat in a canyon” Cooney won’t be able to take pictures come Saturday seeing as though no one put in photo requests in the Google Doc.With this mighty of a squad, there is no doubt the Gentle Clowns will send the flying phonies back into the dirt for the second straight year behind power hitting, tremendous base running and headlines that aren’t diagonal.And while the final outcome of the softball game will be very important, it will not be as important as the postgame dance off, as Lallensack and Copy Chief Amy “Don’t write an Oxford comma or I’ll put you to” Sleep look to defend their title for the second and final year.last_img read more

A Husband’s Tribute

first_imgMy Dearest “Archmar”,            It has been 8760 hours  since you were snatched away from us  by the cold hands of death…these have  been the most difficult days of my life thus far… for death is the only natural phenomena of life that we are  never prepared for nor can we accept no matter when it occurs , how it occurs or how old the person is… yet we must all experience it… how it is handled by us differs from individual to individual and from situation to situation…. but there are certain elements that are just unique to death itself… it creates an illusion as to whether it  is real or not… is this really happening to us… am  I in a dream .. is she/he  really dead…. Ultimately, you come to grips with reality that your loved one is no longer with you physically…this creates a very deep seated pain that you must bear… such a pain is like a gigantic hole in your heart.…then the grief  period begins…very difficult time that has no specific time frame…. At times you get mad with your loved ones for leaving but was it up to them?… certainly not…it was all  another natural act of God… you  have to bear the various stages of grief…. These come without any time frames and are not to me in any specific order… there is the shock & denial period.. when you cannot realize what just happened….the excruciating pain and guilt  follows…. This must be experienced by you…For it  cannot be hidden…Anger and frustration set in .  We  began to ask “why us”…. did we deserve this ??…Depression / frustration set in…the magnitude of one’s  lost is realized….Then comes the upward turn…the adjustment period without the one you loved….Is this possible  you asked yourself…then comes the reconstruction period….The hope  that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.. this is the belief that will take you through all of this… without this you are forever down…finally will come the acceptance & hope period  that  will allow you  to deal with the reality of the situation… such an acceptance does not necessarily mean instant happiness…given the pain and turmoil you have experienced, you can never return to the carefree, untroubled YOU that existed before this tragedy…But you will find a way forward…Friends and family members  would say  to you…you need  to move on… some will say it this is life….it happens all the time…you will get over it…you are being too hard on yourself…..you will hear all sorts of words that are sincerely meant to comfort you…Yet  they do not realize that they are not in your shoes… but  in your mind, you only want to believe for the moment that this  is not really happening… it is a dream…. they do not know your situation and perhaps have not yet experienced  such a lost….. all that is left with you as an individual are the loving/ cheerful  memories of the fun , good  and sad times that you encountered over the years  As I reminisce about my “kidoh”, my “archmar”, all I can think about  is her desire to live a good life…. indeed, she did…she achieved the goals she set for herself….she even went beyond them…Her day was done on this earth….the Good Lord took her from labor to eternal rest…all of us miss her uplifting  smile…her unique cheerful giggle, her comforting  laugh  and her warmth  that she showed us whenever she was around….she loved folks…She cared for her family, her friends , co-workers and even her known enemies…the sad thing is that we did not get to grow old together as a couple to reach the promised “three scores and ten”  and by his Grace, years beyond that  point …..But above all I am grateful that I struck that conversation with her back in  1994…neither of us ever thought that this was  the beginning of a lifelong relationship…yet it turned out to be an indelible, enchanting and amazing encounter for  us …… She  will always be my amazingly, loving wife that  I so dearly miss…. Without whom I am very lost…but by His Grace, I do believe that true love will come around again…rest in peace my love…Until the resurrection….ANS Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
