Mudcats Lose Amid Illuminati InterferenceUpdated Friday June 1, 2018 by Justin Biggs.
The Mudcats warmed up at Mundy field still relishing their condiment inspired victory the night before. However, there were early signs that an ominous force looked to damper the Mudcats jubilation.
Mudcat team illuminati expert Mark Chernos detected the early signs that something was amiss. “Hey, did anybody notice all the Chryslers in the parking lot?” asked Chernos knowing that Chryslers were the vehicle of choice for the illuminati. Chernos’ questions were met by shrugs by the Mudcats players but Chernos continued. “The strangest thing happened, one of the umps dropped his wallet and his SIN card fell out and it was full of wigwams instead of numbers. I’m telling ya something doesn’t feel right”.
The evidence to support Chernos’ suspicions would mount once the game started. In the top half of the first, D-Rob thought he beat out a double play as the base ump waved his arms twice emphatically indicating ‘safe’ only to verbally call D-Rob out. The out call stood, and the umpires refused to confer with Chernos noticing the tail end of an apparent secret hand gesture between the umps when the refused to confer. Chernos looked back over both his shoulders as the trees rustled behind him, “they’re here, I can feel them”.
The evidence increased as Colin Cousins took to the mound in the bottom half of the inning. After zoning in during the warmup, Cousins had trouble throwing strikes and said in the dugout after the inning that he felt “an invisible force nudge me as I released the ball”. The Bluejays had an early 3-0 lead. In the top of the second it looked like the Mudcat had hit another homerun only to watch the illuminati blow the ball foul at the last second. After two innings the Bluejays led 5-0.
Hope briefly fell upon the Mudcats after Chernos spotted a shadowy figure among the trees backdropping Centre Field. “I saw his beady reptilian eyes” said Chernos who explained that the reptilians and illuminati are battling each other to form the new world order. “This is our inning, I can fell it” said Chernos. The Mudcats then scrapped together a five-run inning to tie the game with Chernos himself delivering a two run rbi single.
The Mudcats hope dwindled as the Bluejays scored another run in the bottom half and built themselves a 11-5 lead over the next few innings. One final play would be all the evidence needed to convince the Mudcats that the illuminati were meddling in the game after a Craig Valach to lead off double. With a ground ball hit to first base and a throw to second, Valach was standing on the bag as the throw arrived. The illuminati saw the play a different way and Valach was called out on a force play.
In the final frame the Mudcats added two more runs as the game concluded in favour of the Bluejays 11-7. During the handshake, Chernos noticed how both umpires wore rings with the Eye of Providence on the same finger. “I rest my case” concluded Chernos.
