Team’s Plea Falls on Deaf Ears
Posted at 4:04 p.m. on June 18, 2012
What Exit?, the Garden State team in the House Softball League, had a simple Monday request: that their game with Texas Republic be voted the league’s game of the week. And for good reason. The game, set for Thursday, pits What Exit?’s 6-2 record against the 5-0 Texas Republic, who also happens to be sitting atop the league.
The HSL website has a feature every week allowing teams in the league to vote for what they think will be the top game during the seven-day span. The two teams to pull enough votes get some front page-love and a brief summary explaining why others should care about the game.
“Vote for @WhatExitNJ v. Texas Republic for this week’s @HouseSoftball #GameOfTheWeek Go to housesoftball.com and VOTE WE?!,” the team tweeted earlier this morning.
The team’s campaign came up short, as the Cap City Brewing Flyers and Owego Fire Department, ranked third and fifth, respectively, won out. That game is set to take place Tuesday evening.
The Jerseyites should take solace in the fact that they likely didn’t lose by a wide margin. Turnout was truly lackluster.
Click on “vote count” and you’ll find the other teams that lost out to the eventual winner (there’s no indication how many votes cinched the victory. In second place was Big Japan vs. the Channel 4 News Team with a whopping two votes. Bringing up the rear were games between DGS and 24sixers and KGB’s vs. the Mastodons, each with a single vote.
Hard to have a recount when there isn’t much to count.
