I played in a company softball tournament yesterday.  It was a lot of fun!  We battled for a while and ended up playing a total of 7 games to lose in the championship game.  2nd place is nothing to be ashamed of.  We fought hard and lost to a very good team.  Compared to us, they were pretty fresh.  I think they played 3 fewer games than us.  Anyway, it was hot.  The temps were hovering around 100 degrees.  And I got hurt.  Again.

This time it was my hamstring.  I was running from first base to second when I felt a pop in my right leg.  I could have sworn I heard it too, but I’m pretty sure I imagined that part.  Anyway, it hurt like hell.  That was in our 6th game.  So I sat the rest of that one out and then of course I missed the last game.  It killed me to watch our team struggle in the last game because it was so evident that we had nothing left in the tank.  So we lost the game.  But we left everything out on the field.

So now I’m walking around with a limp.  I’m hoping the hammy heals up fairly soon.  Besides our current season, there is another softball season on the horizon.  I know what you’re thinking.  It’s time for me to hang them up.  My second significant softball injury of 2009.  I’m 33 years old.  But I still feel the urge to compete.  And until that goes away, I want to do something.  I want to stay active.  So I will try to be more careful.  :)

Time for me to limp off to bed.

  • A hamstring is a common injury. Try yoga to stretch yourself out and prevent future injuries.

    Did it sound like when a guitar string pops? Like the Tom & Jerry cartoon?

  • Sandie:

    Well I guess I shouldn’t feel bad that you missed the birthday party and an oppurtunity to see Mr. Sanchez. :) Sorry you got hurt.

  • Mike:

    Since when is 33 too old to compete? You’re still a young guy – enjoy it!

Today's Deep Thought

  • I think a good novel would be where a bunch of men on a ship are looking for a whale. They look and look, but you know what? They never find him. And you know why they never find him? It doesn't say. The book leaves it up to you, the reader, to decide. Then, at the very end, there's a page that you can lick and it tastes like Kool-Aid.
