Wiffle Ball Champions

Darkness and Dominator will reclaim the championship

The Loveshack unveil new jerseys!

There you have it, folks. The unveiling of the brand new jersey for your local Loveshack “warriors” is finally here. If you remember, the duo sported something a little more manly last year, having a close family relative be the representative/mascot.

This year, shit got real for them. After having congratulatory words from Hollywood’s Finest Gays and being sponsored by GLAAD, the team has decided to go in a new direction. They’ve also decided to opt for the “baby doll tee” as opposed to a man’s jersey, because…well…you know.

“You know, I’m a skinny guy. I chose the baby doll because it makes my figure look way better.”

“I just like the colors!”

Look for these new jerseys out on the field at the championships!

New Endorsements for the Loveshack!

Big news for the Loveshack camp. Two new corporate entities have come forward and expressed their support and furthermore, monetary endorsement of the Loveshack.

Nissan has come forward as the first supporter, namely with their newly released US product, the Cube. After seeing the Losers prevail over the Champions, and subsequently changing their name to the Loveshack they came to an agreement that they would create a new line of the Cube appropriately dubbed ‘The Loveshack series.” Because the car undoubtedly is home to many comparisons to shacks, homes and cardboard boxes. Naturally, the Cube wanted to be a part of such a historically queer team, so the series will feature new colorways such as “Yelpin’ Yellow,” “Pretty in Pink (pictured below),” “Babydoll Blue,” and team favorite “Lovely Lavender.”

The official launch will be in 2010.

A second sponsor is more of a moral support type deal. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, known as GLADD, have expressed their sponsorship of the Loveshack. As you may know, GLADD has been pivotal in the careers of Ellen Degeneres and Rosie O Donnell, and are allowing Gays to prevail in professional sports as well.

Several prominent figures in the Gay and Lesbian community spoke out in support of the Loveshack.

“I think this is a great opportunity for these two nancy boys to really stand up for their kind and make all of us proud.”

-Ellen Degeneres

“I agree. If I was a guy, I would do them.”

-Rosie O Donnell

“I am a guy, I would definitely do them.”

-Adam Lambert

Will they bring home the Gold for the Gays? Stay tuned.

“They’re too gay for even us…” – The B-52s cut ties with the Loveshack

The not-so beloved team Loveshack has obviously derived their team name from the famed 80s group, the B-52s. As you know, the group’s most successful single, 1989’s “Love Shack,” is a song that’s known by many. Both Tony Premo and Crybaby Nik have publicly noted their love for the song and reasoning behind changing their team name.

“Ever since we snaked that [2008] championship, I’ve just wanted to spread the love around, and I know my team supports that. We didn’t want to be associated with losing, so we wanted to show our appreciation for the fans and let them know that there’s plenty of us to go around, if you catch my drift.”

-2009 Losers‘ Loveshack Press Release

After catching wind of this name change, many wondered if the washed-up group would press charges against the team for stealing the name of their smash-single.

Singers Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson showed a lack of care for the matter after being asked about any pending lawsuits.

You kidding me? Those queers can have that song. We wrote that song to get in good with the gay community anyway, but they’re too gay for even us.  So by all means, feel free to use it. We’ve spent all our money from that single on methamphetamines and other hallucinogens, so I couldn’t give a [expletive] less what the [expletive] they do with that [expletive] song. Just don’t use our [expletive] Flintstones theme song. Now that would be a lawsuit-worthy situation.

-Cindy Wilson/Kate Pierson, The B-52s

Interesting fashion choices…

While the Champions are gearing up for a repeat of 2006’s victory, the Loveshack has different agendas in mind. It seems as though Crybaby has slowly began his transition from wiffle ball to his real love — broadway.

He was recently out on the town promoting his local theatrical performance of Mario the Musical: Storming Bowser’s Castle. In a recent interview with Dance Weekly, he mentioned his love for the stage

Hot damn, I love dancing. Anything to get me into these tights pretty much is a guaranteed sign-on for me. God bless the theater! It’s so RAW!

Premo, however, is a bit confused. Now, everyone loves Kanye West and there’s no problem with that. But he’s pulled outdated replications of the rap superstar and began to believe that shutter shades are actually in. Here he is at a local party with what seems to be a Taylor Swift impersonator wearing shutter shades.

After a brief interview with Kanye, the WBC Blog would find out that Mr. West is no longer affiliated with Shutter shades and has since stopped wearing em.

WBC: So Kanye, Premo has been seen sporting shutter shades and alluded to you as inspiration. How do you feel about that?

Kanye West: Dog are you [expletive] kidding? My hat, my shoes, my coat – Louie Vuitton stitched.

Kanye West has been a huge fan of the Champions since Day One and in 2007, wrote a song about the team, aptly titled, “Champion.”

Here’s Kanye West with the champions at Kanye’s birthday party in 2007:

Stay tuned.

Questionable Reading Material – The Loveshack Controversy

After insinuations of cheating were anonymously tipped to the WBC offices, the investigation team decided to take to the source: the Loveshack locker room, commonly referred to as “The Boiler Room.” [ed note: Sources close to the team have alluded to the fact that they turn the heat up to 100+ degrees, urging those who enter to shed articles of clothing, but these allegations have yet to be confirmed.]

Upon further investigation, several interesting books were found in the lockers of Premo and Crybaby. Let’s take a look:

Now, this one isn’t too bad. A Self-help guide to the ins and outs (all homo) of the wonderful game of Wiffle Ball. In an interview with The Darkness, he would mention that “Real champions don’t need a mother[expletive]’ guide.”

Wiffle Balls? Upon investigation and a quick skim of this booklet, reports said that this was not a guide to the game of wiffle ball. In fact, the book had no information that contained anything of relevancy to the game.  In actuality, it was a guide to the local ‘homosexual hangouts’ of the greater Houston area. A bit risky, but I guess times are changing.

This is the book that has caused a bit of a stirrup in the industry as of late. Excerpts from this book, “On Ways to Win,” have alluded to the “unofficial equipment” scandals and ‘dirty’ playing methods.

Some of the controversial excerpts:

“Sometimes you may seem like you are overmatched and overdominated, with no light in sight. Don’t fear there are plenty of ways to get past this type of team. You can try to bribe the referees or umpires, or even make powerful equipment to help you. Practice may seem like another way, but it takes a lot longer.”

“You should try to bribe to get an extra player in the game. Use an outside force to get this extra fielder, and take away the other’s teams’ strategy. The more you have in the field the merrier. Bribing again can be used with this extra player.”

Not exactly a testament to team playing, don’t you think?

Will the December curse be an issue for the Loveshack this year?

It’s no secret that Tony Romo has seen his days of glory, but as soon as December rolls around, choke city. Considering that 1/2 of the Loveshack derives most of playing influences and inspirations from the famed Cowboys quarterback, one has to take the December curse into consideration.

The last meeting between the Champs and the Loveshack happened in July of 2008. The Loveshack were barely able to take the championship, during Game 7 of the series. Let’s not forget the unbelievable comeback on behalf of the Champs from a 3-0 deficit to even take the series to Game 7. During Game 7, the Loveshack were able to measle a win when it came down to the wire, and respects and dues had been paid up.

This year’s championship takes place in the dreaded month of December. Will Tony Premo rise to the occasion or fall victim to the curse?

Stay tuned to Wiffle Ball Champions for ongoing coverage.
