Softball Report!

Our last game got rained out, so to end the regular season…double header! What a wonderful day for a ball game, let’s play two! And let me tell you something…standing out there in a softball field in the blistering sun from 3:00 to 9:00 has to be one of the most physically draining things you can do. It’s not really exhausting – because it’s softball, and all you do is stand there all day – but at the end of it, you just want to go home and sleep, and never touch a softball again. Until you wake up and want to do it all over again!

We were 1-3, on a three game slide going into the first game, which was against the worst team in the league at 0-4…so no matter what, one losing streak was going to end that day.

…turns out it was theirs.

We had the tying run on base in the last inning…but to be fair, even if we had tied it we would have needed to keep them from scoring in the bottom of the inning, which was no small feat. This one burned me the most out of all of them…I mean…one run!

And I had three errors, at least one of which allowed a run to come in. Easy fly ball to right field, backpedaled, slipped and fell on my ass, got up still tracking the ball, backpedaled, slipped again, ball lands two feet from my glove. That’s just embarrassing.

Next game…not enough people from their team showed up, so we were the winners by default. The two sweetest words in English language. So AL and Derek defected to their team and killed us. I think you can imagine the standard demanding a trade lines they threw out…good times. And good game too – I hit well and felt better being back in the infield again, but since it was a friendly I’m not going to put up the stats.

There was this one cute Japanese girl on the other team (right off the bat – pun intended – that’s two of my top five desirable traits in a girl…Asian, and plays softball). So we were planning for me to completely bulldoze her over at second and start some drama, so AL could come to her rescue. Except we didn’t account for the fact that I haven’t had an extra base hit in two weeks. And also that we’re pussies.

Day at the plate!
Top 1st: Fielder’s choice to shortstop.
Top 2nd: Pop out to center.
Top 5th: RBI single to third.
Top 7th: RBI single to left.
And like nine home runs in the second game, but since we had already won, none of it counts.

Thus with the default win, we stand at 2-4…which somehow puts us 5th in the division out of 8. I don’t even know how that’s possible, but I’ll take it.

Play-offs start next week. Let’s get it on.

“You’re Darryl Strawberry.”
“Yes?”
“You play right field.”
“Yes?”
“I play right field too.”
“So?”
“Well, are you better than me?”
“Well, I’ve never met you…but…yes.”

Apparently PHP7 doesn't support the same function calls I wrote in 2008? I should fix this at some point.
