Even though it pains us, we have to give credit to aTm head coach Rob Childress for implementing a flawless game plan against the up-to-that-point-impregnable Carson Fulmer. Further, we must acknowledge that their hitters, specifically Birk and Allemand, executed that game plan better than even their coach could have imagined.
In fact, here's a child's drawing of Thursday's game, as it was horrifying, unexpected, and all aTm.
Senior shortstop and team leader Blake Allemand left the park twice, and he and fellow middle infielder Ryne Birk formed a formidable Texas two step at the top of the order.
Like all white-people dances from Texas, it came fast, it was visually unappealing, and you were angry at your 6th grade gym teacher for making you do it.
Yesterday, we fought back against our collective 6th grade gym teachers and beat Alabama's collective of future gym teachers 16-1 in a game shortened by two innings to keep the next game from raining out due to the collective tears of the Bammers filling Regions Park in Hoover.
Today, we must keep the anger that propelled us to pound Alabama into a jelly, and unleash it on who really deserves it.
Attention Aggies: We know your game plan now. Walker Buehler is not likely to challenge you with middle-in first pitch fastballs. He will hit corners. He will break knees with his off-speed stuff.
He. Will. Destroy. You.
So bring a nice picnic lunch to the park today. Bring the kids. Bring your mom's famous sweet tea. Bring the egg salad. Like revenge, it is a dish best served cold.
YOU WILL BE DESTROYED!!!
(Please and thank you.)
