This past weekend DD's softball team was in their league tournament. So we had a game Friday night, two on Saturday (that had a delay from 9am to noon due to a soggy, wet field), and a 4th on Sunday. If the team was one of the top 2 teams, they would qualify for the Championship. Well, after the 4th game, we were 2-2, but so were 2 other teams, so off to the tie breaker (based on total runs scored, and not more games). We won the tie breaker and at 1pm on Sunday played in the Championship game. We played the #1 team (undefeated all season) and lost 6-3, But the girls got silver metals. And the Championship game was pretty exciting in that it was held at the "big field" with bleachers and a concession stand. Since they had a PA, they announced each girl at the beginning of the game, then when they came to bat and then again as they awarded the metals. I'm an awful parent; I forgot my camera and didn't get any pics.
In case we weren't totally pooped (which I was), we then (its now 7:15 at night) went down to the Port Pool where the softball/baseball leagues had rented the big pool for the evening. DD swam with her buddies and I did one lap with my knees and gave up. It was too cold and my knees weren't ready for that kind of movement yet.
Today at work, I told my boss I needed a few days off to recuperate from my weekend and he just laughed. Have you had weekends like that?
