Things I'm too old for

Last night I had a softball game. I wear shorts. I was on 2nd base when a guy hit a bomb. It was caught and the outfielder fell backwards. I tried to tag up from 2nd to home (3rd base coach’s call). I slid, I was out. I got a bruise on my ass, a scrape on my leg, and cut my arm. But we won! We're 4-1 for the first time ever. Softball’s awesome.

How short are the shorts?

Nice! I suck at softball. I too scared to field grounders. And fly balls. Basically any moving projectile.

Bone bruise, and torn cartiledge in right knee, sprained left ankle and shin splints in both. Love of the games. Softball 4x a week and volleyball 2x a week. Yeah I look like a commercial for ace bandage.

hk - thanks.

mad e - not short. Like basketball shorts shorts.

jackt - you can't be scared or you'll only get hurt.

ss - gotta love it. I've slid into second and ripped my leg up swearing to never slide again. Then someone hit a fly ball and I tug up and slid into 3rd on the next play. Softball is the greatest sport ever (once you're over the age of 21)

Amen to that. I play in 4 beer leagues. Where else can you get drunk and improve your playing?

My husband plays in an - AHEM - over 40 league. Hardball. A bunch of old guys reliving the glory days. Each game, at least two are injured, sitting on the bench with ice-packs. Cracks me up.
