These guys were so fucking injured by a teenage girl’s awesomeness that they literally threw a hissyfit and hung up a sign that said “NO GIRLS.”
They gave up.
They couldn’t handle it.
Losers. 
Teenage girls are amazing.

Here’s a friendly reminder of why the big leagues of sports aren’t co-ed.
It’s not to “make it fair” on women. It’s because men are scared of being beaten by women.

She’s from my home town! And after all the baseball games I’ve been to here, no one ever mentioned her at all. I only recently looked her up online.

Girl Gets: An Open Letter Explaining the Abundance of Death in Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin МЕМЕРХ.Сом There's a widespread belief in certain circles that I am a tad too overzealous with killing off central characters in my book series, A Song of Ice and Fire (and the associated television program, Game of Thrones). The evidence is substantial: the protagonist of the first book, Eddard Stark, is beheaded towards the end of the novel; his son Robb and wife Catelyn are shockingly betrayed and murdered in an event that comes to be known as 'The Red Wedding'; and the Red Viper of Dorne, Oberyn Martell, is brutally killed by The Mountain, after seemingly defeating him in single combat. And really, that's only scratching the surface - Robert, Joffrey, and Renly Baratheon, Lady the Direwolf, Lord Commander Jeor Mormont, and scores of other minor characters have perished by my pen. Has there ever been a writer as cruel and murderous as 1? Allow me to pose this question to you - how many of you have heard of William GODDAMN Shakespeare? In case you illiterate shitlords aren't familiar, he's the most famous, accomplished, well-known author in human history - and a guy who would kill off characters in insanely brutal ways like it was nothing ALL OF THE GODDAMN TIME. Ever read Hamlet? You know who survives Hamlet? Like two people TOTAL. Everyone dies in that play - Shakespeare kills off more characters in three hours than I do in five books. Wanna know how many 'main' characters l've killed off in the book series? 2. TWO. And even THAT'S debatable. Sure, I maim 'em plenty, but I really rarely kill off anyone who's absolutely central to the narrative. Shakespeare though? Let's just say MacBeth makes the Red Wedding look like a bridal shower. And if we're just talking about fucked up deaths, holy goddamn shit - Titus Andronicus. A girl gets dragged into a forest and brutally raped by two dudes, who then CUT OUT HER TONGUE AND CHOP OFF HER HANDS so she'lIl never be able to tell anyone who did this to her, When her father finds out about the rape, he figures out who the dudes were who raped her, murders them, bakes them into a pie, and feeds them to their own mother. Bet you thought South Park was so clever for that Scott Tenorman shit those hacks were just cribbing notes from the guy who INVENTED unknowingly eating your relatives: Big Willy Shakes. Oh, then the father murders his own daughter (the one who got her tongue and hands cut off) because she got raped. Now THAT is a fucked up death. What fucked up deaths have I written? A guy gets his head smashed in? That weak-ass shit wouldn't even give Shakespeare's sadistic bloodlust a chubby. And let's be clear - very few of my deaths are "shocking" in any actual way - they're almost ALWAYS the consequences of characters making stupid-as-shit decisions and getting blinded by pride, honor, and ego. • Ned Stark just straight up TOLD Cersei he knew about her incest-y ways and that she better flee King's Landing - and also that he hadn't and wouldn't tell anyone else this little secret.

Girl Gets: An Open Letter Explaining the Abundance
 of Death in Game of Thrones
 by George R.R. Martin
 МЕМЕРХ.Сом
 There's a widespread belief in certain circles that I am a tad
 too overzealous with killing off central characters in my book
 series, A Song of Ice and Fire (and the associated television
 program, Game of Thrones). The evidence is substantial: the
 protagonist of the first book, Eddard Stark, is beheaded
 towards the end of the novel; his son Robb and wife Catelyn
 are shockingly betrayed and murdered in an event that comes
 to be known as 'The Red Wedding'; and the Red Viper of
 Dorne, Oberyn Martell, is brutally killed by The Mountain, after
 seemingly defeating him in single combat.
 And really, that's only scratching the surface - Robert, Joffrey,
 and Renly Baratheon, Lady the Direwolf, Lord Commander
 Jeor Mormont, and scores of other minor characters have
 perished by my pen. Has there ever been a writer as cruel
 and murderous as 1?
 Allow me to pose this question to you - how many of you have
 heard of William GODDAMN Shakespeare?
 In case you illiterate shitlords aren't familiar, he's the most
 famous, accomplished, well-known author in human history -
 and a guy who would kill off characters in insanely brutal ways
 like it was nothing ALL OF THE GODDAMN TIME.
 Ever read Hamlet? You know who survives Hamlet? Like two
 people TOTAL. Everyone dies in that play - Shakespeare kills
 off more characters in three hours than I do in five books.
 Wanna know how many 'main' characters l've killed off in the
 book series? 2. TWO. And even THAT'S debatable. Sure, I
 maim 'em plenty, but I really rarely kill off anyone who's
 absolutely central to the narrative. Shakespeare though?
 Let's just say MacBeth makes the Red Wedding look like a
 bridal shower.
 And if we're just talking about fucked up deaths, holy
 goddamn shit - Titus Andronicus. A girl gets dragged into a
 forest and brutally raped by two dudes, who then CUT OUT
 HER TONGUE AND CHOP OFF HER HANDS so she'lIl never
 be able to tell anyone who did this to her, When her father
 finds out about the rape, he figures out who the dudes were
 who raped her, murders them, bakes them into a pie, and
 feeds them to their own mother. Bet you thought South Park
 was so clever for that Scott Tenorman shit those hacks were
 just cribbing notes from the guy who INVENTED unknowingly
 eating your relatives: Big Willy Shakes.
 Oh, then the father murders his own daughter (the one who
 got her tongue and hands cut off) because she got raped. Now
 THAT is a fucked up death.
 What fucked up deaths have I written? A guy gets his head
 smashed in? That weak-ass shit wouldn't even give
 Shakespeare's sadistic bloodlust a chubby.
 And let's be clear - very few of my deaths are "shocking" in
 any actual way - they're almost ALWAYS the consequences of
 characters making stupid-as-shit decisions and getting blinded
 by pride, honor, and ego.
 • Ned Stark just straight up TOLD Cersei he knew about
 her incest-y ways and that she better flee King's Landing -
 and also that he hadn't and wouldn't tell anyone else this
 little secret. Plus, we cast Sean Bean in the role. If
 you
 thought his head was remaining attached to his neck for
 the rest of the show, you haven't been paying attention.
 • Robb - where the fuck to start with this kid. Breaking your
 vow to your sleaziest ally, and then crawling back to
 them? Check. Executing your own bannermen for killing
 enemy POWS? Wow, cool morals, bud. Hope they comfort
 you while your head is getting sewn onto a fucking dog.
 • Oberyn? Showboating, prideful, and going up against the
 strongest beast of a man in the world. How did THAT one
 surprise you? Cuz he poked him a few times with a stick?
 HAVE YOU PEOPLE LEARNED NOTHING?

 shock-purposes-only type deaths they all have clear
 purposes within the drama of the story, and are only dealt out
 when absolutely necessary.
 Unlike Shakespeare. That dude's a fucking psycho.
 -George RR Martin
 PS - You know what else has a ton of crazy deaths in it? The Bible.
 Fuck. Everyone dies in that thing. Fucking DEATH dies in the Bible.
 I'm not kidding, look it up - Revelation 20:14. YEAH. THE CONCEPT
 OF DEATH DIES IN THE BIBLE. And you people thought I was bad.
