A Few Other Things That Happened Recently

* Our BSSC softball team won five games this week to take home the championship. That makes two championships this year, we won football a few months ago. Apparently Don't Stop Believin' (our team name, because Journey is awesome) is the first team in the history of BSSC to win football and softball. I think that can mean only one thing; we are obviously the best athletes in Baltimore and the surrounding counties. That's the only real conclusion I can draw.

* We bet the new guy at work that he couldn't eat a Taco Bell Grande Meal for lunch. In case you were wondering what that consisted of it was 4 Original Tacos, 3 Soft Tacos, and 3 Bean Burritos. Needless to say he lost that bet. He finished 8 1/2 of the 10 items, but in the end the Taco Bell Bean Burrito is just to disgusting to ever have completed the task. We did surmise that he could put down 15 to 20 regular tacos though, which is impressive.

* I realized this week why I never played football. In the third game of our championship run I had a little colision. I hit a ground ball to the shortstop, I was hustling because I thought I could beat it out. The throw led the first baseman into the baseline and I had no time to react and ran through them. I took an elbow or shoulder square in the chest and breathing has been painful for the last few days. What I mean by that is that every time my lungs expand I feel a sharp pain in the vicinity of my heart. Not good times. I definitely bruised or possibly cracked a rib. In my defense though that was a pretty big girl playing firstbase.

* I discovered two delicious treats on Saturday that might have changed my diet forever. The first one being this. Are you serious? I love sausage, I love pancakes, and now you've combined them and put them on a stick. I can't think of anything that could be better than that. Jimmy Dean may have just changed my life forever. The other is something I can't believe I hadn't thought of before. Just think, what is the most fool proof way to take anything already totally appetizing and make it even better? Answer: deep fry it. I was watching a cooking show and the woman deep fried ravioli. That is awesome. I had to try this, and as suspected, it was divine.

Deep fried Ravioli? That does sound awesome. Don't know if I'm brave enough to try it though ;)

You're not really holding hands with that old-balls guy in that football picture, are you?

Eric said...

steph, it is in fact very awesome. my favorite food group is definitely fried stuff with cheese.

ice, I don't know what you're talking about, I think thats someone else. It is an honor to have the Dieon Sanders of coaching commenting on my blog though.

holding hand with old guys, getting housed by a girl, loving sausage on a stick... hmm. I'm just saying...

Eric said...

Getting beaten up by a girl is not gay and I am more comfortable enough with my sexuality to admit I like a good sausage from time to time and that old guy took advantage of me.

lets not forget that he loves the dik

Eric said...

I don't name the animals. And it's called a dik dik.

JW said...

correction then, that guys loves the dik squared

Mike said...

That's doubled. One Dik squared would still be one Dik.

Eric said...

Good work Mike. If you're going to make a joke thats not even funny at least get the math right.
