Spring Softball

Post placeholder image

What a glorious day. For the first time in a few weeks, it’s didn’t rain on Saturday morning. Normally I wouldn’t care since I sleep in most Saturday mornings, but rain has prevented the softball team I organized from playing. So after two false starts, they finally played today. Unfortunately, team didn’t win, but it was a great first effort. What I like most about the team, is that it offers Michigan grads, who for the most part don’t know each other, a chance to get together. It feels good to know that friendships and relationships are forming as a result of my efforts. It’s not easy sometimes to chase people down to get their commitment to play or even worse their portion of team fee.
After softball game, we headed to Duffy’s our sponsoring bar for lunch. Going there, I sometimes feel like it’s my own Cheers bar. I know a few of the managers and quite a few of the waitstaff. Today, since it was our first game, in addition to our team discount, the manager offered a free round of shots after lunch. However, as it was mid afternoon, there were no takers from the team. I ended up having a few shots with him after team left and to say I’ve got a buzz on, is an understatement. I’d already had two coronas with lunch.
For those of you who may think I’m a lush, I really don’t drink that much. Sure, I’ve been drinking more lately, but that’s because work is stressful, summer is coming and I’m hanging out more. Know that I know my limits. I’m always in control of myself. But what usually gets me in trouble is when I switch up what I’m drinking. Starting with wine, then switching to beer and ending with shots is simply not a good idea.
Well I’m going to run a few errands before the sun goes down. Maybe I’ll even get in a workout at the gym. I promise to update my activities for the last few days, later on.

    1. Going to the sponsoring bar after the game is always a sure-fire way to get lit.
    2. Duffy’s is pure evil.
