It's a beautiful day for Calvinball here at a random clearing in the woods behind Calvin's house. Let's meet our teams, shall we?
Defending champions Piranhasaurus Rex are fielding a strong team. The two Bruces, Springsteen and Willis, are starting up front. David Bowie is holding down the defense - that man wields a mean cricket bat. Steve Carrell is in goal, and captain Calvin is throwing down as the roamer.
Challengers Hot Sauce Mongoose are focusing more on speed than power. They've got Neil Patrick Harris playing point, Topher Grace on the left wing, Captain Hobbes on the right, and Bill Murray and Kareem Abdul Jabbar sharing defensive duties.
Here's the kickoff. Springsteen's got the soccer ball, Grace is looking confused at a wiffleball, and Calvin is wrestling over what appears to be a neon pink rugby ball with Neil Patrick Harris. Here comes Willis into the fray... oh! He takes Harris out with a hockey stick. Where did that even come from? Hobbes responds with an incredible pounce, taking the soccer ball from Springsteen. The captains are racing towards the end zones. Calvin reaches first! He scores! 4 points!
NO! Hobbes switched the goals at the start, so Calvin actually just scored for Hot Sauce Mongoose! He's decided to go for the extra point by punting the rugby ball. It's up... it's going... it's stretching the length of the field. He's surprise-kicked a pass to goalkeeper Carrell, still camped out near what we thought was Piranhasaurus Rex's goal, but actually turned out to be Hot Sauce Mongoose's! He's scored and tied it up!
Time for the third inning ball change. A football, a volleyball, and a beach ball are lined up in the middle of the field. There's the whistle! Everyone rushes the balls, except Bowie, who is just charging the goal... He's got a baseball hidden away! Hot Sauce Mongoose are all turning to get him! He throws across the field to Springsteen. Springsteen to Calvin. Calvin To Springsteen... OH NO!
Springsteen turns! He hurls the ball the wrong way, right into the waiting hands of Hobbes! He's been a Mongoose the whole time! Oh, I did not see that coming! Hobbes scores, and doubles it with a backflip!
What a dramatic close to the game. That's what I call excitement. Congratulations, Hot Sauce Mongoose! Well done. Come on back next week to do it again. 8pm Tuesday night, at CB & Potts. Good times had by all.
