The Official Home Of
SLOSH2k Delivers True
"Dillodemption"
In a stunning reversal from last year, Scott Haiduc delivered perhaps the most
honest win in Sloshball history.  His feisty young squad willed itself to the
ultimate triumph with a resounding 15-10-10 thumping of "No Crackers" and
"Keepin' It Honest" to win the 6th Annual Sloshball Championship.

the source of his inspiration.

The game itself marked the beginning of the 3-team era,
brought on by increased Sloshball participation.  
Despite rampant confusion (which will be addressed by
the Sloshball Committee this winter), the game came
right down to the final inning of play.  In a game that
featured a record 14 homers, it took the 14th to finally
put the game away for "Dillodemption".  The Commish
launched a high-arching shot to center which clearly was
NOT nearly caught and helped over the fence.

Following the game and a ravenous Wahoo's scarfing, several awards were presented.  Of
course the Jacko was returned to Scott.  "I Try My Best" went to Rob for his splendid effort
just past third base. "Super Recycler" went to Nick for his frequent sprinkling of hops on the
soil.  "Good Sport" went to Duke for his various foibles.  Lynn reeled in "Team Player" for
her transatlantic trip to attend Sloshball.  And the coveted MVP award went to spry young
Audrey for her outstanding organizing of the champion "Dillodemption" squad.

tenacious style.

The day finally concluded with the Hall of Fame presentation.  After The Keg
was enshrined for its obvious contributions to the great game, Mr. Dave
Oskorus was presented the Sloshball Hall of Fame Jacket and Plaque.  Dave's
contributions to Sloshball are countless, so it wasn't surprising to see him win in
a landslide vote. Upon donning the jacket and receiving the HOF plaque, Dave
thanked his many fans and then spoke about patriotism and some guy named
Jones. Congratulations Mr. Dave Oskorus--Sloshball Hall of Famer for 2000.
Special thanks go to the Sloshball Committee (Dave, Scott & Sean), as well as Bill, Kuff,
Lui, Adrian, Jay, Anhthy, Milo and Trish for their contributions to SLOSH2k.  Thanks to
each of you, it was another fun day in the sun.  See you at Sloshball Field next year.

The festivities opened with our first ever Homer
Derby--dominated by Jay McGrath (Anhdai's
sister's boyfriend's roomate's girlfriend's
boyfriend) with an amazing 8 for 10 performance.  
Then "Two WOPs, an African and a Guy From
Philly" took the stage to sing a poignant rendition
of "O Canada", only to be sadly booed off the
stage by a couple of malcontents in the crowd.  
Spurred on by the MC's challenge
to, "Show them how we do it in
America", the world-famous
"Village Idiots" launched into
"U.S. of A." and a quick encore
singing of "Sloshball Man".  It will
forever rest in the annals of
Sloshball history as the greatest
national anthem ever.

so if you want candy, just let me know."
"Go Daddy, Go!!!"
