Last night we had our softball tournament. I was quite disappointed with our short season to begin with, and then to finish it off with a 2-game tournament? Both our games were played against a division 3 team (and we are division 4). The first game we were able to get a good lead in the 2nd inning but the 3rd inning was out of control and the umpire was inconsistent with his calls and very blind. We are lucky a couple of our guys weren't kicked out of the game. The second game was just as rough, with some bad calls, but we were able to pull through and take 3rd place overall!!
It's funny because half of our team consists of teachers, mostly high school teachers. Last night our first baseman (who was a high school teacher but took a new job this summer), was hassled by a member of the other team. He had jumped to reach a ball, dropped it, and said "that's okay, we play fair" in regards to some bad calls. The member from the other team shouted "I saw the grade you gave my child!" ... he replied with "I saw the child who earned the grade." I can't believe a parent would talk smack like that during a softball game. I just had to chuckle at his response.
Today, I have my gym bag packed for a long swim after work. I through the bag in front of my door, this way to make sure I don't forget it like yesterday. *see previous post*
Today, will be a better day!
