One of my favorite summer weekends

by - Monday, August 10, 2015

My alumni softball league had part one of our playoffs on Saturday and Sunday. With 67 teams, close to 1,200 people and softball games from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, the weekend was just a giant party.

Pool play was this weekend, and my team won all three of our games, which means we advance to the elimination round next weekend.

We got lucky this year and our games were at 8 and 10 a.m. on Saturday and noon on Sunday. So once we got the first two games out of the way, we had the entire rest of the day Saturday to hang out at the most epic tailgate ever.

We played some cornhole, the guys drank some beer, and we played a lot of slip n slide.

I forgot how painful slip n slide can be. I have massive bruises on my arms from sliding down the tarp.

On Sunday, you could tell a day of being in the sun really caught up to people. We won our game, but everyone was dragging.

I hit the ball pretty well on Saturday, not so much on Sunday mainly because I was basically a walking zombie. Hopefully I will make it to the batting cages on Tuesday to work on the basic mechanics before next weekend.

I can't believe this weekend has come and gone already though. I spend all summer looking forward to it, and then I felt like I blinked and it was over and all I have left are the very sore muscles and many bruises to show for it.
