Softblog, part un (pronounce: "ooon.")


So. Nobody's doin' nuthin' at San Diego on Thursday the 26th, right? Then you should hustle your happy ass to Morley Field to see the second annual Hero Initiative Marvel v. DC softball game! Luxury motorcoach round-trip transportation will be provided by Hero for a mere pittance, details coming soon. Buses (oh, I'm sorry—make that "luxury motorcoaches") will board at the Hyatt, a mere two doors down from the convention center. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

Just a SMALL sampling of players playing, with MORE being added every day:

Marvelous Mike Pascuillo takes his Marvel Excelsior!s into battle with Paul Jenkins, John Romita Jr., Humberto Ramos and more.

Mighty Mike Marts leads his DC Bullets into the fray with Dan Jurgens, Adam Hughes and Billy Tucci.

That's right—the biggest off-season acquisition in sports, Billy Tucci, has swapped sides from Marvel to DC, and softball pundits are all a-twitter! Tucci was last year's MVP, as Marvel spanked DC, 22-11. He'll see if he can repeat his MVPerformance, and bring the coveted Stan Lee Cup (see above!) to the Distinguished Competition.

I'm so glad that this event is continuing. The softball game has to be one of the most unique and fun events at SDCC.

GO TEAM DC!!!
