Lesson 1 of tournament ball - win the game you're in.  Lol.

There's something unique and special watching a live Rush show while watching the Stanley Cup Finals...on my couch! And, I'm truckin' up to Buffalo for the show @ FNC!!!

:7up:

Yes, I really enjoyed listening to Rush instead of Mike Emrick!!

Been trying to catch Canadian feeds where possible.

Small crowd tonight.  I was once again a slave to Little League.  My son's team lost, but there was some comedy.  Our starting pitcher was throwing like an ace and mowed down 4 of the the first 5 batters.  Since this was the playoffs, and we were one game from the championship, our manager decided to save this guy for the championship game, which we only get to play if we win this game.  Good decision? (hint:  This is a logic test)












So...the reliever comes in and walks eight batters, beans another, combined with five booted infield grounders.  The 4th inning ends with us down 11-2.  Mercy rule after 4 inning is 10.   One run shy.  There's a 1:45 time limit, but we are six minutes shy of it.  So we go to the 5th.  A series of relief pitchers for us proceeds to give up eleven more runs on walks and hit batsmen.  It takes an hour just to play the top of the 5th inning, but we finally get the third out.  By rule we have to bat, and I jokingly say "88 balls and we're in business".  On cue, the opposing reliever walks our first batter on four straight balls.  "Only 84 more...", I say.  2nd batter walked on four straight, as is the 3rd.  We walk in five runs before the Ump gets some sense and severely enlarges the strike zone.  This leads to a couple of our guys striking out on bad calls, which of course sets off our coach.  The final out is on a bad call strike out and out coach comes storming over to me, saying, "Tough to beat a team that has ten guys on the field"...and he meant it.  If only the ump was more fair, we'd've had a shot.  :D

My son walks over and I ask him, "You ever had a Big Mac?"  He says, "No, dad."  I say, "Let's go..."
