The A's We Ain't

Playing in a coed softball league, one should go in with low expectations. Maybe it was the 4-0 start we jumped out to, but I was feeling pretty good about my team's chances. Now we are 4-2 and I am spending too many hours at work wondering how we can tweak the defensive alignments. I still think I am ok with losing, if it was normal losing. We have lost leads of 11-0 and 10-1, and I don't think I have to tell you -- it sucks. The streak ends Friday, because either we win one, or I will become so unproductive at work I will be fired.

On a related note, Britt played the whole game at catcher because we were short one girl. It works out in a funny way. My wife gets more playing time than I do on my company team. Go figure.
