Red's Army

How about we PLAY basketball?

RedsArmyAdmin May 21, 2009 Uncategorized 32 Comments

We've been doing this Red's Army thing for a while now.  I know a bunch of you like to play ball as well as watch it.  And I know a bunch of you are actually from the Boston area.

I've been thinking of a fun way to get to know a few of you… so I'm wondering… who wants to get a game together? 

Email me:  jjkaralis@gmail.com if you're interested.  We'll try to make it a week night for those of us who work.  We'll try to figure out a location and all of that over email. 

Let me know.  I think it could be fun.  Even the people who don't usually comment are invited too.

    I love it. This could be my opportunity to show Chuck once and for all who’s the boss.

    Let’s see if he actually shows up. I put this up without his knowledge.
    I WILL call flagrant 2’s if I have to

    John – Hope you can get a cameraman and post the pick up games on the site. Would be funny as hell.

    Didn’t you play pro basketball, John? A bit unfair towards the amateur players ;)

    I did, but that was a long time ago. I’m old and run down now. At least… as far as you guys know.

    Don’t fall for it, this guy jumped a kid on a tricycle a few weeks back, he’s still got hops.

    What a great idea…I’m in Manchester, NH, so if Bostons too far for any of you guys, let me know and we can get one goin in NH too. mse27@unh.edu

    I don’t think I could handle a Tim and Chuck argument in person. Actually I know for a fact I couldn’t handle that in person. John be prepared for what youre getting yourself into.

    He is old and run down…take it from me.

    It would be terribly embarrassing for a young’in like you to get whooped by an old man.

    Okay so this game is going to have to include a few rules:
    1) Balcony Gal is tracked down to sing the national anthem
    2) Jester must be flown in from Cleveland to sit in the stands and heckle people with drunken slurs all game.
    3) Jester is honored after the first quarter as the “Hero Among Us”
    4) Jonnythebone’s jeresey is retired at half-time.
    5) Chuck leaves the game in 2nd half to go to his wife’s knitting class.
    6) When my team gets a 20 point lead in the third quarter the jumbotron flashes to KobeWearsaPurpleThong dancing Gino style with only a purple thong on.

    Ha!!! Awesome rules..lmao. “Heroes Among Us”..great! BTW, old friend Sam I Am has officially retired and taken a coaching job:

    I’m from the philippines but I’ll be in boston for one day in mid june. I think that’ll be too late.

  • Angry Turk AKA ssshady35

    I think Danny is going to be behind a bush scouting the teams new walk on. Tell the truth Reds this is really a try out for the C’s. Count me in!!

    If I sing does that mean I can’t play? Eh, I wouldn’t try anyway; wouldn’t want to show anyone up.

    Wow I wasn’t aware that you were still on the site. You can play and sing for sure. It would actually be great if you did show up so Chuck could have somebody to guard.
    Nice to hear that you’re still on the site though.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5d5008970c Jester00

    Wow, hero among us HA-Ha if I flew in I would get up and down court at least 4 times and dominate with a series of post moves and pump fakes like like world has never seen. Then We would all Drink like it was the last day on earth. Keep me in the loop on the games, if I get a big enough sale or can figure out a way to get my work to pay for it I will be there!!!!!!!!!!!

  • G4L

    Sounds like fun!

  • BigDankCloud

    I definately want to get in on this. Possible league creation?

  • Atomic Man

    I’m all over this. I think I would drive 2 hours just to swat Chuck like the old days. He knows he could never guard me anyway with my Jordan like moves.
    He knows Inferno and I are still the belt holders.
    Bring it Biatches

  • Bill

    I definitely want in. I’m in Worcester so the drive wouldn’t be that bad.
    I rocked my Losers t-shirt at Fenway last night. Definitely a crowd pleaser!

    Thanks, Tim! (and sorry for the multiple posts but I was getting an error, not overly excited or anything) I’m lurking everywhere. ;) The idea of hanging out in Chuck’s armpit is not that appealing, though. I’m sure it’s a lovely armpit but, you know, eh.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f9d2049970c robcharbo

    This is a great idea. I’ll play (6’3″).
