I was just on weather.com looking at the hourly forecast for tomorrow, and I feel pretty confident that the postponed “opening ceremony” for Little League will again be cancelled. By next Saturday, which I assume would be the new date, we’ll have been playing games for 2 weeks. Is it really an opening ceremony at that point?
Maybe because we didn’t go last year (I don’t think T-Ball is included) I don’t know what the big deal is. Well, I guess all the kids from each team get introduced and walk across the field. That’s cool for the majors and minors, but heck, instructional league doesn’t even get their team names put on the North Leominster Little League official website. So we’ll have to sit there while 10 to 15 kids from each team (I believe in total there are 16 or so teams) get introduced. It’ll be like watching a graduation ceremony, but maybe without the boring speeches from 18 year olds telling each other “we are the future, and we will go out and make a difference!” Ya, okay, that’s cool, but can you leave pickles off the tuna sub, Brittany?
I removed the two previous posts because now I’m not sure I’m going to be able to go, and it seems silly to leave a rant there if there’s not point.
So what else…um. I know there was something I was going to mention, but I’m blanking.
Look, according to the g00gle ad I just saw, eBay is branching out into food. I think I’d rather have the new than the used, though. I mean, if given a choice.
I have to figure out how to teach my son to run properly. Does that sound odd? It feels odd. He runs as if his legs are in casts. I cannot figure out exactly what he’s doing wrong, other than thinking he’s too stiff, that he doesn’t bend his knees enough.
The reason I need to figure this out is that while he’s a good hitter, twice last night he was out on first because he didn’t run fast enough (he did make it to base and eventually scored a run at least once, so that’s good). Just a little faster, you know? I’m not a physical trainer or a coach, so I don’t know how you explain it to a kid. It’s not like some kids who are sort of, well, lumbering. They just don’t run fast. He could run fast, if he was doing it right. (It probably sounds more confusing than it is.)
Also, a hearty welcome to all my new MSN Search results visitors. Can I offer you some Kool-Aid? (I was going to write “Tang” cause that’s such a humorous beverage, but given the search terms driving you guys here, I thought maybe you’d take that the wrong way. I tells ya, there are so many things I was going to write that I had to self-censor until MSN stops associating me with dirty search terms, just because they sound dirty.) One of them made me laugh out loud when I realized how it sounded. Maybe I’ll write it in the comments so it won’t be picked up by the search bots.
Oh, forgot to mention this nugget from the Sentinel:
Mazzarella [one of the lawyers, not the mayor] downplayed the severity of the fight during an interview with reporters outside the courtroom.
“I don’t know why the press is here. People get their heads kicked in all the time,” he said. “For some reason, everybody got excited, and the judge is excited.”
Dude, are you kidding me? Are you seriously saying that people get their heads kicked in all the time? Where? In your neighborhood? Cause it doesn’t happen in mine. You don’t think people should be excited that this happened at a children’s party center? What kind of crack are you on?
