BC top of the table mid season

by huge Email

After a slow start pinning BC down 3-0, 10 minutes into the game, BC rallied to decisively win a well fought 12-10 match against the Marin LC in sunny Sausalito Saturday. Goals came in all flavors from all positions on the field, with the BC defense being rock solid. With the game ball going to Aaron "Milk" Fenton for stellar goal tending and last minute 1 v. 1 saves from the crease, BC finds themselves undefeated in the NCLA with a 5-0 record.

Highlights:

  • Blair with an attackman in a headlock during the scrum
  • Blair laughing at the attackman during the scrum
  • Bobby with the "i'll drop my stick with the ball in it and come back later to pick it up" move during a clear
  • Kevin Moon with ballet like precision in keeping the ball from going out of bounds while his body did
  • Tyler's sweet dive over the man-pile
  • Tyler's post-game wardrobe change into the Indonesian Sarong.
  • Cito taking his shirt off after the game: photo
  • Cold Negro Modelo after the game

BC starts the 2010 season!

A sincere congratulations to Matt & Stacey who got hitched May 28th with a slew of BC'ers in attendance. Now that I've been married a full 7th months, I can give some sound advice. "Happy wife, happy life". I know the wedding was an excellent time... it's just a little blurry after the Fernet shots...

It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp

by mcgurk22 Email

On every team, there are leaders and there are followers. Barbary Coast is no exception, and when it comes to social events, Chris Clark is Sitting Bull and the rest of us are just members of the Sioux Nation. But where does this social
butterfly get all of his motivation? I sat down to Chris to find out.

JM: “Clarkie, you’re never one to shy away from a social occasion. What event turned you from ‘that one kid from Upstate New York’ into ‘Holy crap that party really got going once Chris Clark showed up’?”

CC: “Great question, but first let me say this, it’s about time this team started noticing how hard I work. I’ve been carrying you bastards on my social back for years now. I don’t mind throwing down for Milk’s shots of FerNet, he’s a god damn All-American! But you San Diego kids always forget your wallets and show up at O’Malley’s right when I’m ordering!”

JM: “Yeah, Pat Ferguson does have amazing timing for getting free beer, but back to my question?”

CC: “It was my second junior year at UVA…it was a Tuesday. The local dive bar was playing Wyclef Jean’s ‘Perfect Gentlemen’. His line about “Just ‘cause she dances Go-Go, it don’t make her a ho no’ changed everything for me. Think about it, just because some broad makes a living on the ‘pole’ doesn’t mean that she shouldn’t consider herself blessed to get down with me. I ended up blacking out that night, but when I woke up the next day, there were three naked chicks in bed with me…none of them were crying, so I decided to follow my gut and change my life for the better…and it’s been a party ever since.”

JM: “Did anyone ever give you advice on how to reach the social pinnacle, and do you have any advice for the rest of us?”

“Remember the basketball coach from ‘Teen Wolf’? He lived by three rules:
1) Never get less than 12 hours sleep,
2) Never play cards with a guy who has the same name as a city, and
3) Never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body.

I’ve embraced those, and they’ve never failed me…but I’ve also added three of my own:
1) Stare and hold eye contact until it’s awkward,
2) Touch early and often, and
3) Always, always, always be in the game.”

JM: “I’ve always wondered why you’d work so hard to hold eye contact with random chicks, now it makes more sense.”

CC: “Yeah, you gotta stare at the eyes though. You take a page out of Dennig’s book and just stare at her cans all night, and you’ll never get anywhere”. Oh, and shameless self-promotion is always encouraged.”

JM: “Fair enough. What is your best and worst moment?”

CC: “They’re the same moment. I once hooked up with a chick when we were both wasted. Next day her friends asked her ‘how drunk were you?’…she told them ‘Chris Clark drunk’. How sweet is that! Pound it!

(Chris holds out a closed fists and refuses to take the interview any further until I bump knuckles with him)

JM: “So what’s next for Chris Clark?”

(Chris takes a folded newspaper clipping out of his wallet, unfolds it, and shows it to me)

CC: “This douchebag. I’m gonna hunt him down and put a beating on him because he makes the rest of us socially-gifted look bad. I mean, who wears FOUR popped collars!? Three maybe, but four is absurd! You’d be better off wearing a long underwear onesey with mistletoe over your junk! At least then people know you have some dignity!”

Interview over, we stood to leave and shook hands.

JM: “Clarkie, as always, I’m impressed. You wanna grab a beer?”

CC: “Nah, we have a game tomorrow morning, and I have three parties I need to hit up tonight before I head home. Plus, I have a meeting that I still need to schedule.”

JM: “Meeting?”

CC: “Yeah, there’s an ex-wife in the making out there…I just haven’t met her yet.”

BC Alums Serving Our Country

I caught up with Jordan Kemp (U.S. Air Force) recently and thought it was worth a post. Sounds like there's a chance he'll be back with us. I just pictured him and Loulet on the field at the same time and wet myself. Here's the thread:

Chris,

Hey dude, sorry for the unbelievable delay before getting back to you. Believe it or not, I had followed you guys through the email chain and via the website last year so I knew you guys had won. So congrats on that. Did you ever get to play the team from San Diego or did they never commit to a game? Anyways, I'm almost done with pilot training here in Columbus, MS. It's been a brutal year as far as training goes, but it's almost over. I think I'll be getting a pretty good assignment out of here but even that's still up in the air. I won't find out what I'm flying or where I'm going until mid June. Travis AFB will be high on the list and if we go back I'll definitely look you up.

I can't tell you how much I miss the game man. Especially playing with you, the Kim Bros., and all the rest of the BC guys. What a great group. Ever since I left I've been itching to play so you can bet that if we get sent your way I'm definitely in to play again.

One of the most frustrating things is that there are actually a lot of lax guys here at Columbus but no one has a goal or time to play. And if we did have time there's really no competition within a thousand miles so it doesn't really do us any good.

Thanks again for the note dude. Hope all goes well this season for you guys. Keep me posted on the inevitable success in the defense of the coveted NorCal championship.

A few of us on BC were talking about you the other day, and it made me realize that you may not even know that we won the NorCal championship last year. Somewhere there's a pretend championship ring for you. If you're ever back in the bay area you're welcome to play with us again.
