A little rant coming your way here, forgive me.
Plastic bat and ball sports are awesome, I think you’ll agree. Some of the products and amazing, some are good, and some don’t cut the mustard for the type of game that most of us want to play. That’s fine. That’s capitalism, I’m good with that. Here’s something I’m not good with though. It’s the blatant ripoffs. Take for instance the new “as seen on tv” Swerve Ball. You can find it in Target now and let’s be real, it’s an absolute blatant ripoff of the Blitzball. Some jackass decided that since the Blitzball patent was pending, he’d swoop in with a bunch of cash and market the crap out of a ball that is identical for all intents and purposes.
Blitzball has a place in the game. It is markedly different from a Wiffle ball and it’s genuinely a unique concept. Both balls can play nicely in the backyard and they should.
Blitzball was started by a nice and intelligent young dude in a garage in New York. He’s since grown his business he old fashioned way with hard work and this is what he gets for it.
This new Swerve ball is everything I hate about America. Screw you, and your screw ball, guy.
If you want the Blitzball experience, buy a Blitzball, folks. Support the creator.
John has been doing this. He has nearly completed his hand built repertoire of “small baseball” gloves. Each of which is purpose built for the person wearing it. Different sizes, different webs, different materials to ensure that each glove serves its purpose perfectly. Folks, we are talking wizardry here. The man is a genius. As a curiosity, would any one be willing to pay for one of these? Is there interest out there for playing “small baseball?”
So, one of my ram chip slots decided to take a five and the only replacement is a new logic board! Yay! Anyway, that’s my excuse for being a lame duck. Once the computer is back, I’ll get the fire vision review up and we will be back in business. On a side note, our host has been a bit spotty, so many reviews and emails haven’t made it through it seems. I’m working on it. Man, who knew that I’d have so many people wanting more wiffle goodness when I went down. Anyone want to take over a website!!?!
As you’ve all probably notice, we’ve shut her down for the season. Winter doesn’t exactly take it easy around these parts, so we’ll hoist our favorite eggnog and sing our favorite songs, in hopes that the Spring comes soon. We look forward to getting back at it when the rains stop in the Spring. Godspeed wifflers, and to all a good night.
Through our short time putting info up for everyone, we’ve run into quite a few nice wifflers. Occasionally we get great techniques and awesome ideas, and Ryan was no exception. He sent us a great bit of info regarding a very effective way to modify your bat for a little more pop. Thanks for the contribution, Ryan.
It all started when Casey suggested we view this video. From then on, our wives continually rolled their eyes while we purchased every piece of wiffle ball equipment we could get our hands on. From nothing but a few internet suggestions, we developed SAHD wiffle. The game can be played and modified to suit your needs. Our version is based on inexpensive entertainment while still performing at high levels. Enjoy your game, let us know how you do it!
