softball fever

wednesday's team is 5-0... we've won 20-0, 22-7, 13-1, 19-0, and 18-17... we've got three more games and if we win two, we lock up first place and then, there's a two loss elimination tournament... there is one team who can beat us if we let them, so we need to play smart against that team... the sunday team is 6-1, which is a surprise as most are new players, with 8 games to play... we won 7-6, won 9-1, lost 7-6, won 8-2, won 12-9, won 16-4, and won 19-0... seven of our fourteen games are against the top four teams and we are, so far, 3-0 against them... monday's team is 5-0 with 5 games to go... we won our games 17-7, 13-3, 16-15, 20-0, and 9-3... we need to win 2 to lock up at least a tie for first place and three of the next five to lock up first place... there are just four teams in the league so we play all a single elimination tournament at the end... friday's team is 4-2 with 4 games left... we lost 14-7, won 12-5, won 14-9, won 14-1, lost 16-12, and won by forfeit... there is not only much tougher competition in this league, but this team has so many hitters who want to hit the fences and not a lot of speed, so there are a lot of fly outs and not enough rallies and because the other teams hit well, there are a lot more errors... it's also the only usssa league which makes for a much harder ball and more compressed bats which make for much tougher plays... this is the league that almost broke my shin almost three weeks ago... i filled in on a thursday night team last week and we won by a run coming back from way behind... so it's been a pretty good season so far at about the halfway point with an overall record of 20-3... i like winning...

but i love playing the game... more, more, more :)

musical distractions

If people had visible signs or meters that told something about them, what would you want it to tell you?

dumb poll (above), smart responders

all the previous poll votes were somehow erased, so, nevermind... ironically or coincidentally or whatever, the results were very close in practical numbers to the results above shown with just three votes, if you understand the mathematics behind that extrapolative reasoning... i will probably remove the poll at some point... it is a ridiculously useless feature...


the thing is, with my tendency to babble and meander and whine and allow distraction to take the lead more often than not, even in this blog that sort of meant to merge brevity with focus like some bloggers do, searching for key words does not always lead to specific information about the subject of that key word... but... here is a start at an easy way to search for key words in this blog... use the search box at the top of the blog to search for words not listed here... if ya wanna, that is... and feel free to suggest words to add to this search shortcut section... click on the words below :)
