yo mom

So I've spent a few Wednesdays this fall playing in a kickball league and tonight was the final hurrah as we played the #1 seed and thus lost.

BUT...

I assisted a TRIPLE play! Okay so I am no good at kickball. Eye/foot coordination is not my, uh, gifting??? Anyway, I can play volleyball...so what's a centerfielder to do when a sandy, wet kickball flies her way? She assumes serve receive and passes (read: bumps) the ball to the shortstop! Who tags a runner and then throws it to second or something...I missed it because I was incapacitated with laughter and shock.

To our credit our little 8th seed team made a little run and produced some offense... it was not a blow out! Which is almost like a victory for The Lagers:-)

All this to say, this post and that play was dedicated to my mom who did have an actual triple play once at shortstop. She was like the shiz at softball in her day.

I love you dearly, Mom.
