BSC PLAYER(S) PROFILE
Bobby and Brenda Williams
BSC STAFF: What's Up?
Bobby: Hi BSC
Brenda: Hi BSC
BSC STAFF: How have you two been spending your off-season?
Bobby: Working and exercising at the gym. Watching football and tailgating at the games.
Brenda: School, School, School and more School. Finally finished nursing school.
BSC STAFF: Congratulations!
BSC STAFF: This is the first year in a longtime that there was no world title brought back to your household isnít?
Bobby: Yes it is!
Brenda: Yes it is!
BSC STAFF: Does that serve as motivation for next year?
Bobby: Yes, very motivating. Once you have been on top, you want to stay on top. So it serves as big motivation for me.
Brenda: It is, but it would be sweeter with my fulltime team. My last world title came with a team other than my own.
BSC STAFF: Speaking of next year, letís address the rumor mill, which you know is always rampant? You first Bobby. There is a rumor that Pace will return in 2010, is this true and if so will you once again be a part of the squad?
Bobby: Of course I am interested if that is the case, but I want to be on most the competitive team on the circuit next year. Like I said before, once you have been on top, you want to stay on top.
Now for you Brenda, there are rumors that LMX and Showstoppers are combining and that LMX and Gulf Coast Heat are combining, care to elaborate?
Brenda: I have not heard any of those rumors, but Bobby is definitely interested if some of those players want to join us. I do wish the ĎSip only had one womenís comp team though. That would be one very strong team.
BSC STAFF: In any event, the two of you do anticipate bringing some championship hardware home in 2010?
Bobby: Yes, we will.
Brenda: Yes, definitely
BSC STAFF: Bobby you have taken a very active role in Coaching Brendaís team, what has that been like? This is a question for both of you actually.
Bobby: It has been a big change. I feel I am uncoachable as a player, so to reverse the role has been a challenge. With my wife being on team, I have to treat her a little different and sometimes we bring it home and it is not real nice sometimes.
Brenda: We are learning to separate it. LOL. I have a brand new respect for Tonya of Supersonics and Sirene of Enough Said.
BSC STAFF: Bobby, you are noted to be one of the great trash talkers on the circuit, honestly have you ever met your match or anyone remotely close?
Bobby: Not one person, but maybe 2 or 3 people at one time.
Brenda: I donít know, Sirene gives him a run for his money when we play them.
BSC STAFF: Both of you are veterans of the circuit? How has it changed over the years?
Bobby: 10 or 15 years ago, teams did not fear anyone. But now teams seem to run from competition. Teams used to just show up and played no matter what teams were in the tournament. At least once I would want to say I played against the best.
Brenda: I agree with some of what he said, but I really like the environment that has been created. Some of the friends I have made I know will be friends for life. The social aspect of the game is why I love it so much. Of course we love what the BSC has done for softball.
BSC STAFF: Bobby you have played and competed on the open circuit at the highest level as well, what is the biggest difference between the two circuits.
Bobby: For me the trash talking. On the open circuit, trash talking opens up the middle. Here, we know itís just all in fun and no disrespect is intended.
Brenda: Other circuit is just boring to watch for me.
BSC STAFF: Bobby, this year you played in one of the fiercest, most competitive games the circuit has ever seen between the Bombers and Semper Fi in the BSC World Series. What was that game like to participate in it?
Bobby: I have thought about that game a many of times since we played it. I have played softball a long time, but I have never seen balls hit that hard before in my life between two teams. It seemed like every inning, the guys were hitting harder and harder. And I tell you this; I would have rather been cut in 3 innings, than to lose like we did with bat in hand.
Brenda: He used to cry after games like that.
BSC STAFF: Toughest batter you have faced
Bobby: Big Swole, with all due respect to Squirrel who I think is the best hitter on the circuit, for me Big Swole has always been my toughest out. On Sunday you can get to him if he has partied all night(lol), but Saturday he is tough.
BSC STAFF: Brenda, who is the toughest pitcher(s) you faced.
Brenda: Cissy of Enough Said and Jen of the Supersonics.
BSC STAFF: As we always ask, if you could make one change on the circuit, what would it be?
Bobby: For the whole tournament to be 1 pitch. Games would fly by and stay on time, and the pitcher and batter would always have to be on their A game.
Brenda: I wish we could move more womenís teams up at the end of the year.
BSC STAFF: OK, that about wraps it up, do you have any shout outs.
Bobby: First and foremost I want a big shout out to the ĎSip. As we prove time and time again, some of the best softball in the country is played right here in the ĎSip. And of course, Steve McNair(R.I.P.), who meant so much to me and my family and the whole state of Mississippi. And to all of the people I compete and tailgate with at the tournaments. I donít have to send my wife one since she did the interview with me right?
Brenda: A big shout out to the circuit as a whole. And to my LMX family, along with my good friends playing with the Supersonics and the Showstoppers. And we waqnt to invite everyone out to the very first LMX Invitational next year. Dates coming soon!
