I on the other hand have no problem with crushing Jeff's fragile Ego. Just a reminder of the lead up to this game:

Jeff: Everyone knows Boulderites have no ball skills. Sure, they're good at pseudo-"sports" like rock climbing, mountain biking, body hair-growing and inventing issues such as global warming-- but requiring them to utilize hand-eye coordination and work with others as a team? It's going to get ugly.


Jeff: It depends on how good you are. You need to pass tryouts to make the Denver squad.


Ryan: Team Boulder . . .it will be nice to see you take the field against us knowing you will finish second.


Mandy: They don't call me KILLER MILLER for nothin'! You foreign SONS OF PITCHES are going DOWN!


Remember kids, when you talk trash you lose by more points than you have extra players on the field.
- A mountain is not a checkbox to be ticked
- Alpinism and mountaineering are not restricted to 14,000 foot mountains
- Judgment and experience are the two most important pieces of gear you own
- Being honest to yourself and others about your abilities is a characteristic of experienced climbers
- Courage cannot be bought at REI or carried with you in your rucksack

Good game, and I am glad that Team Denver didn't bring in the the Green Goblin when they saw Spiderman taking the field for Boulder. With the superhero youth on our side, victory became inevitable. Thanks everyone for the fun times and see y'all up on a mountain.

I love that we even got the sad flattened dodge ball in the pic. Nice job everyone! It was a perfect day.

Fun way to spend a day outside of the mountains.

But the game was 9 to 4, Caroline. Don't get all cocky now.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Some people said it was 10-4! If I couldn't even remember the rules of kickball right after you recited them because of my ADD, how do you expect me to remember the score?!

If you can't remember the right score, can you even be sure you're correctly remembering which team won?
