We had our first two softball games against Community Bank last night. We smoked 'em, folks! I don't remember the actual scores but it wasn't even close. Everyone was hitting and fielding well--especially for a first game. I reprised my role as catcher-extraordinaire. My goal is always: to not embarass myself. Well, sports fans, I achieved my goal. I did a decent job at the plate and even tagged someone out at home.

Even better, everyone on the team is really nice. (we even got another land use attorney-sooo awesome) It is a really fun, positive atmosphere because everyone tries hard but doesn't get up in anyone's face for making a mistake. I've been on a number of teams over the years and team chemistry is vital to having a good time. Obviously, I would rather win games than lose them, but it's soooo important not to have j-holes on your team. Of course, a cooler full of beer in the dugout doesn't hurt things either.

I'm looking forward to the next 7 weeks. Don't worry, I'll give you all the updates.

Was that your favorite fist pump moment?

Anytime I make it on base. Actually, anytime I do anything remotely good or noteworthy. I get super-excitted rather easily.
