It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

People people people! It's rec softball. Softball that you play so that you can go to the bars after you play. It's social, it's fun, let it go...

We won tonights game, 8-7. Except the other team accused us of cheating. They said that it was 7-7. We say that it is 8-7 us. They call us cheaters. We go get the scorebook, where we have what happened for every at bar. They look it over and insist that no, we only have 7, they know it. We only have 7. Despite the fact that our scorebook shows 8. They kept score too and know we have seven. Ok, let's see your playbook and sort this out. Umm...well, they don't keep a scorebook. WHAT?! So you are positive that our scorebook is wrong, but you don't have anything other than your fingers to count on? It's not even like they were arguing that they had 8 runs too (we don't keep their hits, just their score by innings). They argued that we had 7. Then they tried to argue that one of the girls (who hit second from last) didn't bad the first inning. True...we only had 5 people hit the first inning. What the fuck?

Didn't they see us celebrating in the bottom of the 6th inning when we scored our two runs? We were down 6-7 and thought that it was the last inning b/c the games are 7 innings or 1 hour, whatever came first. We scored thef irst and were celebrating, but when we scored the second, we started to walk onto the field. Why do they think that was? We thought that the game was over.

It was the most ridiculous thing that I've ever seen.

    Where is the league you play in? I had this happen to me almost every week when I played in a league out in Richmond Heights.

    Eden, Yeah, I know the full moon does do crazy things. Or nice weather. Winter here in Cleveland sucked, and then there was last summer which was cold and rainy. This summer has been sunny, hot, and humid the entire time.

    Nye, It's Cleveland Plays. Though I live right by Richmond Heights. Guess I shoudln't bother switching teams though.
