Batter Up...

I've been neglecting my blog this week. The last 4 days have gotten away from me, which is really a good thing, since tomorrow's Friday, and I haven't even had a chance to lament about the week crawling by slowly.

Last night kicked off softball season for our agency's team. Somehow I'm the coach of the team, which is quite hilarious since I've never played softball before, minus one short season with my church in Knoxville when I was 6ish. Actually, I accidentally incited a revolt against the former captain and was named new captain. It was all very dramatic (for rec league, office athletics), but now I'm in charge.

Last year we made it to the league semifinals, so we had high hopes for last night's game. Unfortunately, our game didn't start until 10, which was way past my bedtime anyway. Perhaps it was that fact, or maybe that no one on our team had so much as thrown a ball in 9 months, but we lost 14-8. I tried to pretend that I didn't care since, again, it's rec league office softball, but I hate hate hate losing, particularly when you're declared the loser at 11 p.m.

My favorite part of softball season, though, is writing press releases after the game to distribute to the office. Since we really don't have any fans attend, I can embellish to my heart's content, and I take full advantage.

Despite being weary this morning and going to bed with a lump on my shin the size of Paris Hilton's feet, I'm thrilled to be back on the ballfield.

I promise to be a more faithful (and entertaining blogger) in the days to come. Happy Almost-Friday!

I am right there with you when it comes to competitive recreation. My company participates in a city-wide "Corporate Challenge" every summer, and I get REALLY into it.
I hope the rest of the softball season goes better for your team! Make sure you give them a good pep talk before next game. :)
