President Fired as Club Remains Winless

3 days, 3 games, 2 cities...3 losses. The bad luck for the Thirsty Thursday Club and the Great Falls White Sox continued, as the Club's road trip to Helena failed miserably. The Sox dropped both games in the Capital City, making the Club a perfect 0-7 on the season. In the series finale, a good pitcher's duel turned into a blowout as the Brewers routed the Sox 11-0. It was so bad that the Club was forced to turn on some of their own players. Following the game, Club President Jeff Andreoli was removed from his position and reassigned within the organization. Vice President Jared Smith will assume the Presidential duties, with Scotty Simpson taking over as Vice President. The Club has scheduled a press conference at 1pm Mountain Time today in order for the new leadership to address the media. Rumors are also circulating that the Club is close to a deal that would send Andreoli and a bottle of Crown Royal Limited to Tampa Bay for 2 prospects and a year's supply of fish sticks. The deal is being held up by the fact that Smith does not want to part with the Crown, but he is considering completing the trade for the sake of the Club.

Despite the losses, the road trip to Helena was a good time. Brewers' home Kindrick Field outperformed Centene Stadium in several aspects, including 1) they served microbrews, 2) they served them in 24 oz cups, 3) they had hotter girls working the booths, 4) they had beer vendors that came to your seats, and 5) it was really easy to get a good seat at the game because there was nobody there. There were a few negatives, however, including 1) $5.50 for a beer - that's steep in this state, and 2) they stopped serving beer after the 7th inning - weak! After the game the Club headed over to some bar that was closing down after that night. Every drink in the place was a $1. It was like a Thirsty Thursday in Great Falls, only the choices were much more varied than Bud Light, Coors Light, and Miller Lite. In fact, judging by the size of most of the women in the place, I don't think they served anything "light." The Club will be back in Great Falls this Thursday as they try once again for their first victory of the season, this time under new President Jared Smith's reign.

I believe the article failed to mention recent allegations of presidential game fixing. Outlined here:

I'd like to take this opportunity to address my constituents... Go Drink Beer.
That will be all.
One more thing, as my first act as President I'd like to extend a full pardon to former President Andreoli in whatever may come of these wretched allegations of game fixing.

Yeah, I can't blame our former president for any wrondoing. I mean, the guy tried everything to get the White Sox to win a game short of running onto the field and clubbing the opposition - damn you Carl. I'm looking forward to fulfilling my new role as TTC VP, and I hope to land a W.
