The Bulls won in another painful game to watch. Neither team had much energy on a hot and humid night and the pitching was particularly painful to watch. Sam pitched an inning and did pretty well but walked a couple kids. Dylan was hit by two pitches, walked and struck out. Sam had a home run (with two errors) and walked three times. Th final was 11-8 but the game was called in the sixth when the score was 16-12 due to darkness. The final score reverted back to the 5th inning. I'm glad that's over.
The boys are heading to kings dominion theme park tomorrow with the Clermont chorus. Lots of roller coasters and some singing. I'm heading to a board meeting in Baltimore.

The boys came back from a 7-1 deficit to beat the Iron Pigs 15-13 last night in what was the sloppiest baseball game in a long time. The Bulls were the the Bad News Bears for the first couple innings with everyone on the team missing tags, dropping balls and making ill advised throws. Dylan and Sam lead the pack with some bad plays but at the same time, they had a couple of nice plays. Dylan struck out once and walked twice, Sam had a single and walked twice. Sam also had a three strike out pitching performance in the the last inning which preserved a 1 run deficit going into our last at bat.
With the game tied in the bottom of the inning with two outs and Dylan on third, Brock hit a walk off home run to take sole possession of first place in the Pioneer Minors division. The good news of this sloppy game was that the kids didn't give up being down 7-1, then 9-5, then 13-12 with three outs to go. They kept battling back and while the errors were many, the Iron Pigs had a few of their own.
No baseball or soccer games this weekend and a welcome reprieve from cringing in the stands.

I got to to hear the end of choir practice when I picked up the boys from school yesterday. I couldn't help but notice that all the songs they were singing were from my high school years, in fact I have most of them on itunes and I queued on up on the drive home which they both sang loudly in the back seat. Bon Jovi's "Livin on a Prayer" never sounded so good. They are also singing a Go Gos tune and that feed africa song "we are the world" The spring concert just might be entertaining but 4th graders singing the "classics" make me feel old.

Sam struck out, walked and hit a hard double. He also pitched the fifth inning and recorded 3 K's while walking one. He was really throwing hard and right down the middle. He kept the middle of their order from scoring and allowed the Bulls to go into the last inning up 7 runs. It was a good game for both boys.

I love hanging around the house on Friday nights. The boys are back from soccer practice and Sam and I are making fun of a bad paranormal tv show while Dylan is watching sports on his iPad. Nicole is out picking up something at a craft store but we will soon be watching a movie and eating pizza together. I could hang out at home for long periods of time but its important to get out and see grown ups too. We are doing that tomorrow.

It was fun seeing Tony, Bill and Kumie in LA but its good to be home too. I think I'm business trip free for a couple months which is a good thing.

We ran to a Kentucky Derby party right after baseball and got home pretty late. Sam said his throat hurt from laughing too much at the party. Good times.
I'm in LA now for a couple days and should be seeing Kumie any minute and tony and bill tomorrow.
