I'm too old for this!

Monday, April 21, 2014

Or maybe I'm just too fat for this, lol! Tonight was the first softball game for the team I'm on at work. I gonna be sore or what? I have not picked up a glove or bat in 30 years, but I played a double header tonight. All things considered I didn't do too bad. Played 2nd base and stopped a couple of grounders, though I didn't make the throw in time to get the out. Missed a few fielding opportunities by being an old slow fart. BUT...I didn't strike out! That's a plus.

Hopefully I'll get better as the weeks go by. I used to be pretty good, but that was a looong time ago! It would help if I could drop about 30 lbs. Maybe this will help in that endeavor?I can only hope.

Well, gotta go hit the sack so I can get at least 6 hours sleep tonight. Hope I can get out of bed in the morning!

    Just what you need, a game to play. Sounds like you have a strong softball background. I used to play on teams over the years. We'd start out not great, then get better and better but I would just get slightly better. By the end of the season I would be just one step above mascot :-). Sigh. But it was a LOT of fun. Enjoy!
