I STRUCK OUT SWINGING! (VA) “Day 11” – 7/15/10

July 16, 2010 -  7:14 am  - (VA) "DAY 11" - Rewritten July 16, 2010 - 3:30pm (VA) "DAY 11"

I just got up after only 3 hours of sleep, AGAIN!  I have to be in DC to do charity work for the "DC Central Kitchen" in less than 2 hours and I am already starting to feel hungover!

Pool/TanNever did get any sleep!

I got up yesterday at 11am so I could get a tan at the pool, that way I could still get some sleep and a little color at the same time.  Nice!  What happened was I met two real cool girls, Ali and Kristen (teachers).  I didn't nap at all!   The three of us talked the whole time I was there.  We laughed, we cried, we... you get the picture. 🙂  They asked me where I was headed next and I told them Ohio, then Michigan.

Kristen's ears perked up and said she was getting married in Michigan in 2 weeks.  She was probably joking, but I may be invited to the wedding if I'm still in Michigan!  That'd be super cool! We'll see, but either way is what nice meeting them.  I would have a picture but you know women and having their picture taken in a bikini....

Can Obama come out and play?


After getting some color, Kim and I had 2 more softball games to play in last night.  The first game was played right in front of the White House's backyard.  Pretty cool.  We lost the game but I went  2-3 with 3 RBI (2 doubles that bounced to the fence).

The second game was played on a field closer to the Washington Monument.  I went 2-3 with 4 RBI.  My first at-bat I hit a long home run to centerfield, it felt great!.  So when I got to the plate for my 2cd appearance, I was ready to crush the ball.  I loaded up on my swing even though I had 2 strikes and then it happened.... something I will never forget... I STRUCK  OUT SWINGING!!!  OH MY GOD!  What's more embarrassing then that in a slow pitch softball game.  I asked the pitcher to take a picture with me and he obligied.  Bill... If I ever face you again, I promise you'll never ever strike me out again!  Nice game!

Oh yeah, while I was playing, a friend of mine (Winona) from NJ called me and said she and her kids were in D.C.  I told her where I was playing and she stopped down to watch some of the

Damn you Bill!

game. It was great seeing you Winnie even if it was just for a few minutes!  She took all the pictures of us, so I have to wait for her to send me them before they can be posted.

The Bar

Then we (The Team) went to a nice bar and had drinks.  I didn't plan on drinking but as it turned out... I got smashed again.  For a good part of the night I talked with a girl on the team

Hanna and Me "Rooster"

who has a boyfriend 🙁 .  I know.. I know..  But it wasn't like that, she was good conversation and we talked about a host of things.  Given the circumstances, I knew nothing would happen but if the situation was different... who knows.  Timing is everything!!!

I stayed until the bar closed and I had a great time.  I'd like to thank the softball team again for letting me play this week.  It was a lot of fun!

To Hanna the bartender... You were super cool too!  Oh yeah, keep it real Marco (Bouncer) !

Thanks for reading!
