Southern Foods Champs!

For the last couple months I had the pleasure of playing catcher on the Lockheed Martin Southern Foods softball team. It was a fantastic season! It took some time to get my swing back, literally, but I hit a beautiful line-drive in the last inning of the championship game. Not only that, but I caught 3 foul balls and had the winning play!

The team had the best season record, only having lost one game (and that was before I joined the team, so what does that tell ya? = P Hehe!). The semi-finals game was exciting, and we sort of slaughtered the other team in the championship game. Needless to say, I landed myself on a pretty darn good team! Doug is a great coach, and I have grown fond of my teammates (who now refer to me as Wendy, haha).

A victory drink was in order after taking the championship of a great season, so some of us met up at the Ale House. I am proud to say that it was during this evening that I finished my first beer. Completely and on my own entirely (not sure how this didn't occur many moons ago, back in my Purdue days... oh, well). The beer was a Corona with lime, and, while I couldn't do the "plug the neck and tip it upside down to get the lime flavor fused in well" trick, it honestly wasn't too bad! At some points I enjoyed the taste of the beer, actually. Towards the end of the drink it was a little rough... it got into the sock-taste phase with warming up and losing the carbonation, haha. Anyway, here's some photographic proof for you suckers who don't believe me:

I'm quite excited for next season! Who knew I'd find a renewed passion for softball (and baseball)?!

That's awesome! Congratulations, you rock! And I'm sure the loss the team experienced before definitely had something to do with you not being on the team ;) Simple logic ;)
