Man, oh man! Practices, extra practices, games, double headers, away games, home games--no hit, no score, nice catch, no more. Games! Upbeat, hat throwing, "get your head in the game" games. Hit the School! Put some wood on it. Our technique is very special. Walk and Steal. We get walked and then we steal every base...including home! Rain games, and blazing cloudless day games. Poor black Shady, hiding under the bench games. And, when the ball is out of bounds...guess who it hits-- Shady dog! And nary a sign of pain or distress. And speaking of Shady, it sounds like the American Revolution outside our 4th of July house...and she sleeps. I wonder what she dreams about? My guess-- rabbits!
