Gratuitous Domestic Posting&trade - Softball Version

Since Robbo & Steve-O ran away and left the windows open I decided to stop by for a bit. I must say it's and honor to post at an site as *ahem* esteemed and dignified *ahem* the Butcher shop.

Now on with the orgling posting. As summer draws to a close many of the warm weather actives we use to keep us preoccupied are also winding down. This weekend is the last area tournament for the 19 and over girls fast pitch softball. Watching these collegiate athletes take the field in person is an awe inspiring experience.

The slap of the bright yellow ball as it reaches the catchers mitt. The ping of the aluminum bat when the batter makes contact. The grunt of the pitcher as she unleashes a sixty mile-per-hour fastball that looks like a yellow blur only thirty-five feet from the batter. The chants / cheering of the teams as they go up to bat. Attractive athletic women in their prime. They're all the unmistakable sights sounds of a softball game.

Last night the sister-in-law's team won 4-0 in the first game of the tournament. The second game starts at five this afternoon. Where I shall take my seat next to the fence and gorge myself on over-priced hotdogs, pizza and watered down soft drinks that help support a great cause. If you're looking for some family fun this weekend try finding a fast pitch softball game or two in your area.

Did I mention there are almost always several that are attractive and you don't get fussed at by the misses for watching at least ten young ladies on the field at anytime? Oh how I'm going to miss softball season. Did I mention the attractive girls?

If I may suggest an alternative... The much overlooked (IMHO) sport, Women's Field Hockey, featuring sweaty, athletic women beating each other with clubs, masquerading as hockey sticks.

Ahhh, the "just worked out look"--makes any woman look better.
