The Bandits are going to open the 2012 season in style with a Cinco De Mayo fiesta against the visiting Metro Merchants of the Park National League. The Bandits are 6-0 in season openers and look to try to continue the streak against a solid Merchants ball club.
Opening days have so far been kind to the Maroon 9. George Walker hangs his hat on a solid start to the year and has thus far delivered the best possible results a front office could ask for. The Merchants club sports maroon and yellow apparel so the Bandits will be wearing their all black duds that have been tremendously popular with the Bandit female fan club (many have been overheard saying how fetching the young Bandits appear in all black).
Cinco De Mayo fiesta night includes "Beersbie" and other events that are yet to be determined. Be sure to bring your favorite frisbee to the game for the after hours shenanigans that are sure to be enjoyed by all in attendance. Alex Mack is providing DJ skills to the fiesta. Dusty Walker will provide Swedish Fish and Kevin Leak will provide all the neccessary flags. Josh Gist will provide narratives and Kyle Bassamore will provide a voice to disagree with George Walker. Cliff Christopherson and Nick Cobb will be honorary captains for this contest as their names both start with "C" like "Captain".
