I plan to write a blog later, hence part 1 in this entry.
Hope you are handling the heat better than I am. 4 showers yesterday and already two today.
Little League tournaments have been going on for several weeks and right now their is Regional Play. That means we will see a few games on television and can make opinions on the different personalities. Soon the Little League World Series will be going and that means a lot of things. For me it means the end of the summer and of course the beginning of Football is near.
As far as Little League is concerned there is a lot wrong but by the time we get to this point the chicken shit is eliminated and the chicken salad is left. I think the LLWS should be mandatory for a lot of parents and coaches. How small should they feel when seeing better games, better coaches, better players, better fans than what we have all over. Coaches that want to argue every call…fans that are reliving their youth through their kids etc. Granted coaches know they are on television and are on their best behavior, but being respectful and polite comes easier and is more natural. Being as asshole can be real work with no reward.
So if you get a chance watch a game or two. It is refreshing and entertaining. There are so many personalities and so much for us to learn by watching the competition and the sportsmanship. It will make you feel good and I promise that.
On the business side Keytlin just gave birth to a healthy baby girl. That should mean she will be ready in October to return. I plan to swing by her home this weekend with a box of diapers from Costco. With four of them pregnant at once it can be a lot to think about, but I honestly like to think that I am having four more children. I guess I am not exactly right when I see their bellies and wish I created that. I know I am right when I wish them the best and tell them I love them.
My son will be here shortly and he will be playing with our new neighbor and totally forget about Daddy. I however will use that time to write the second part of my blog this afternoon.
Try to stay cool and be safe out there. Don’t get caught up in road rage and just take a deep breath and move on.
