Surprisingly, the Only Thing To Get Hit Last Night Was a Punching Bag

Despite heavy rains last night, the Man-Cub’s team pulled out a major win over one of the League’s nastiest teams-not one of the best teams-one of the nastiest and; they did it with dignity and good sportsmanship.

The coaches from the opposing team were Not Happy with the loss and they were definitely not dignified nor were they good sports, in fact, the Head Coach threatened to kick Hugh’s ass after Hugh admonished him for treating the teenaged umpires with disrespect. An audible gasp rose from the bleachers upon hearing the threat and, when Hugh walked away from the little man; up went a collective cheer. I am, once again, stunned by the immaturity of some “adults”.

Our boys, on the other hand, were just tickled to death to have actually won two games in a row. Early on, we said this would be a “building year” for the team and we weren’t wrong; their skills have come so far, it is amazing and I can’t wait to see how well they all play together next year. Plus, we still have two weeks left in this season.

Two weeks, wow; the summer is already flying by. Too bad the weather has been so crappy; otherwise it might actually feel like we were having summer at all. As it is, I am holding out hope for enough warm-and dry- weather to pull off Porch Night next week; Tuesday is Jana’s birthday and I would really like to celebrate it with her in style. We’ll see, I guess.

On the other hand, the rainy weather has made it nearly impossible for me to deny the children the opportunity to fill balloons with water, place them on the trampoline and jump until they break, thus soaking the children. After all, the rain has already soaked the children and what harm is a little more water going to do?

On a topic related to the title of this post, I started boxing last night and; I think I’m going to like it. The other ladies in the class are just as clueless as I am and, unlike the women from the Pilates Clique, they are nice and welcoming.

The irony of the women in a boxing class being friendlier than the women in a freaking gentle yoga-pilates class is not lost on me, I assure you.


  1. oooo, boxing would be fun!

  2. boxing sounds fun.... but do you have to hit people? LOL
