Pot Lobby Softball Team Beats White House, 25-3

So much for the claim that marijuana use reduces lung capacity: The One Hitters, the D.C. softball team made up of pot lobbyists, beat the White House softball team 25-3 last week, reports the Washington Post.

Last year, the Office of National Drug Control Policy refused to even show up to its game with the One Hitters. Now we know why.

    25-3?!? That's a fucking massacre!

  • Rich||

    Really! What was the White House team smoking?

    I'm unsure how hard to have to try to suck that bad.

    I'm starting to think there is something to the "Obama and his staff are all dorks from Dorkistan and just want to get back at people by ruling over them" meme.

    They'll whip your ass at ADD!

    Fucking ampersand theiving squirrels.

  • The Hammer||

    Little bastards also fucked with your spelling to make you look like an idiot. Vindictive fuckers, aren't they?

  • Brett L||

    i before e even spelling thief, right?

  • Auric Demonocles||

    Or how hard I have to try to suck that hard at spelling "you".

  • Broseph of Invention||

    The irony - those who are against sucking ended up sucking the most.

  • Broseph of Invention||

    As a pitcher I can tell you, those high balls are hard to hit. And from all my drug indoctrination classes in middle school, there's no faster way to get a lady to third base than smoking pot.

  • Concerned Citizen||

    While high, I used to mash the ball in slow pitch softball. Alcohol had the opposibe effect, so that was saved for after the game.

    the stoners shoulda invoked the mercy rule rather than bogart the scoreboard

  • Trespassers W||

    "They changed the metric!"

  • Brett L||

    What? Metric softball is cricket.

  • ||

    No, metric softball is rounders.

  • Sevo||

    "The One Hitters"

  • Abdul||

    Of course they beat the White House. You had 18 year old Obama on one team, and 50 year Obama on the other.

  • The Hammer||

    You really think Obama would allow himself in any sporting event in public harder than shooting free throws and letting the MSM fawn over his athletic prowess? It's campaign season!

  • fried wylie||

    Is this event funded by tax dollars?

  • ||

    In that it is played on National Park property, yes. Otherwise I think the t-shirts and equipment are paid for by participants, either through direct purchase or fees paid to the organizing league.

    Softball is a cutthroat sport in DC.

  • fried wylie||

    Complaint withdrawn.

  • Apple||

    The One Hitters aren't bad, but The 'Roid Warriors have had 15 straight undefeated seasons.

  • fried wylie||

    Oh, and, hey, is it an appropriate time to Ask A Libertarian something?

    Like, what part of embedding a million youtube vids per page sounds like a good idea?

  • SIV||

    Good thing they have the rent-seeking infrastructure in place just in case we get legalization.

  • WarrenT||

    If I'm ever on a softball team that is playing a neo-nazi team my infield chatter is going to be "hey batter batter, hey batter batter, nohitler nohitler hey batter batter, hey batter batter, nohitler nohitler"

    Should drive them crazy.

  • The Hammer||

    That was bad and you should feel bad.

  • WarrenT||

    Once I chose to wear the monocle and top hat my ability to feel bad disappeared.

  • The Hammer||

    Is this because the White House team had to get directions from their coach before they did anything?

  • fried wylie||

    Look, if dependency on a central authority is no way to play softball, then I say we round up and kill everyone who doesn't want to play softball.

  • JW||

    Pffft. Get back to me when the White House kickball team plays.
