The goodwill between the mayor's office and the City Council that has characterized the de Blasio administration was put aside last week for a softball showdown at MCU Park in Coney Island. On this day, ti was the City Council who would rule.

Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito's team got off to an early 7-0 lead thanks to Steven Matteo, slugging Republican from Staten Island. But by the start of the fifth inning, the de Blasio team had taken a 10-7 lead, but would finally lose 17-13 in the nine-inning slog.

As for the mayor, he pulled himself early after failing to get a base hit and mishandling several balls at first base. After the game, he cited an unspecified injury.

So when is the tackle football game?
