Softball

Our softball team won last night, running our record to 7-1. We didn't play particularly well, committed quite a few errors, didn't really hit well at all, but none of that matters since our team is sick. If everyone on the roster could make it for all the playoffs games I don't see any reason why we wouldn't win it all. That would make for a pretty banner year for a lot of us, a quarterfinal run in the kickball playoffs, then winning the football chamionship, a softball championship would be a nice cap. Unfortunately I doubt we will have a our full squad in uniform for the playoffs considering we haven't had everyone show up to a game this year. I imagine we'll run into some problems against the stiffer postseason competition. Last nights game wasn't all positive though, there were two things that went wrong.

The first negative would be me eating it, hard. While trying to leg out a ground ball to the shortstop, I caught my foot on first base and took a bit of spill. Normally that would be just embarassing, but since we were playing on a crappy public park field that was rock soild due to the 100 degree temperature I added injury to insult. My left forearm is pretty much a streak of pus oozing out of the massive rasberry. It's pretty gross and doesn't feel that great. I did beat out the throw though so it's all good.

The second bad thing is me losing my bet to Aaron. I went 1-3 in the first game of the season and Aaron got all high and mighty, thinking he was awesome/better than me, so I bet him that I wouldn't record 5 more outs during the regular season. This was a pretty ambitious, and wholly unrealistic goal, but I really wanted to beat Aaron. And I almost did (we only had 1 more game left this season) but it at all ended last night. It shouldn't really count because 3 of those 5 outs were line drives that were smoked right at an infielder, and only getting 5 outs in 4 games is pretty solid I think, even if it is softball, but I let him have this one. I'll just continue to make fun of him for how many passes he dropped during the football season.

i think you falling was pretty embaressing. i dont think people thought it wasnt because of the field conditions (that all other players faced, and did not trip).

I didn't blame it on the field conditions, I said I trip over the base and because of the bad field conditions got all scraped up. Nice reading comprehension.
