Baseball Pants and Softball Bats

Chris and the guys from church had their first softball games last night. As usual I forgot to take pictures. Last year they only had one team but this year we ended up with two. Our church tends to get lots of new people each year because so many people move here to come to school. A lot of great schools out here.....Harvard, MIT, Boston University and Boston College etc. So this year they have a total of 27 guys. Like last year Chris was in charge of organizing all of it which was a little trying at times trying to deal with that many people. Another friend from church is coaching the other team since there is no way Chris can coach both. They both had games last night, our team won 8-0 and the other guys won 15-9. The bonus is that Chris hasn't hurt himself yet:) For those of you who don't know Chris is injury prone. 3 years ago he broke his elbow playing softball (2 years before that he broke his other elbow playing roller hockey)and last year he tore his meniscus in his left knee. Here are a couple of posts from the day after it happened and the day of his surgery.

He had surgery and all sorts of fun stuff. He is all healed up now but I am still nervous he is going to hurt himself again. I told him if he hurts himself this year he is retiring from sports of all forms...either that or he has to live in a bubble. LOL

LETS GO OILERS! I am so pumped for tonight. If we can win tonight to force a game 7 who knows what can happen. And I just have to say that any TRUE hockey fan from Canada is rooting for the Oilers to win this series. When the Flamers were in the finals two years ago you better believe I was rooting for them to bring the cup home to Canada where it belongs. I had a conversation this morning with a die hard Canucks fan who was quick to let me know he was pulling for the Oilers all the way. Now that is a true Canadian hockey fan.

GO OILERS GO!!!!! I BELIEVE!!!!

I'm loving the Oilers right now! Them winning means I do not have three shows on Monday because of the game! I was hoping they would win last night and it totally came true!! I may not be rooting for them for the same reasons as you but I want them to win too! :)

I'm cheering for Smtyh, Pisani, Pronger, Peca, Moreau, McTavish and Lowe and Simpson BUT THATS IT!!

There are certain Oilers fans (not you) that are making this unenjoyable and even more difficult to cheer for them.

Canadian team or not - the players are probably 75% Canadian anyway....haha. I say, Go Commodore and Weight!!!

PS. I almost painted the Hurricanes logo on my belly to send it to you, but I didn't have time.
