Painful

Description of my experience of watching my two oldest sons baseball team play today.

Painful.

Watching the pitcher allow TWENTY runs in the first inning, before he was replaced (with my son)

Painful.

Watching ground balls go between the legs of the infielders.

Painful.

Watching the outfielders stand as though glued in one spot while the ball falls equidistant between two of them.

Painful.

Watching four kids on the team, two of which were mine, give it their all while the rest of the team could care less.

Painful.

Trying to keep five other children happy, not throwing gravel, and not jumping off the bleachers during the two hour and forty minute baseball-athon.

Painful.

Watching my 52" tall 50 pound 9 yr old pitch a no hitter second inning, striking out all three kids that came up to bat. Kids that are at least 3 years older and at least a foot taller.

A five minute reprieve from the pain.

I have done my parental duty for the season. Next time I feel the urge to torture myself I will pull my fingernails off one by one.

I see the same pathetic playing (and coaching) on the NW coast. Maybe moms of large families should boycott Little League and encourage families to return to pick-up games in the neighborhood?! Well, one can dream...

Been there! Done that! I have only one child who is now twenty years old, but I love your blog and I've been reading it for quite a while. I've never left a comment because I kept thinking we really didn't have anything in common and I had nothing to say, but HEY! I'VE BEEN AT GAMES LIKE THAT! I have vivid memories of soccer games in which the other team was forced to pull players off the field because for every 5 runs they were ahead they had to play one player short. Games in which "our" goalie stared at the wildflowers in the grass while balls rolled by him into the net.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)
