From Shizzy To Bizzzy

Apparently I am busy now.

I purchased a car so I can get around now. Of course 3 days after I buy the thing someone drops a shopping cart into it or something and it now has a nice scratch on the driver door.

It must be some god just reminding me that letting things own you is bad. So fuck the scratch.

My normal nights started to become - Work, Home, Wow, Poker or TV in the basement entertainment room with the lights out. Work. Repeat.

This past weekend going into the rest of the week should look something like this..

Saturday I had practice with my team. Coach Howland. I suppose I should make them call me that as a respect thing. I hate authoritah though. Fuck the man kids! Call me whatever the hell you want. I ran the kids through two hours of loose drills. We batted, fielded, pitched, took water breaks. Nobody died. My back has been aching ever since. Remind me to find some other way to throw balls to the kids. I was winded at the end and I barely did anything except batting a few and throwing some balls to the outfielders. I am reducing the practice to 1.5 hours because 2 hours seemed to be a little long.

A friend at work decided on having a home game. So after practice I went home and rested a little AKA Passed out. I woke up in time and headed over. I proceeded to lucksack a bunch of 3-outers and basically hit when I had to. I wound up cashing 3,1,1 for the three game series. With seven or eight people at a ten dollar buyin this ended up netting me like $65 after the buyins. I also was told I had to come back so my lucky ass could donate next time. The blinds were set to make the games last around an hour. My basic strategy was to be tight, try to make the money, and suckout as much as possible. It worked well.

Tonight is our first game of the season if the thunder storms hold off. I should be leaving work a little early in about an hour. So far I have been asked to drop one kid off, drop another kid off at the end of the game, and one of the kids canceled at the last moment. I have seen five of the ten kids play so far. Setting up a batting and field roster is going to be fun. I also think that I only have a lefty catchers glove. I may have to punish the kid who actually has catching equipment and make him catch the whole game.

I start couch to 5k this week. Tuesday night will be a nice twenty minutes of exercise. Brisk five minute walk. Then alternate 90 seconds of walking with 60 seconds of jogging for twenty minutes. I have been walking 1-2 miles a day when the weather has been good. So this slow start should be good. I need to get a few things before I start though. Sneakers, Shorts, Socks with no holes. Besides that I should be fine.

The rest of the week is more of the same. Second game on Wednesday. Hopefully I can stop off and get a righty catching mitt before then.

Thursday I am going out for drinks and possibly doing my C5K training again. I may miss that and have to make it up on Sunday. Friday will be the 5K exercising. Saturday will be practice again.

Better than sitting on a laptop alone I guess.

WTF? Even Waffles is getting on the exercise kick? How much longer before the 4 horseman make an appearance? We're doomed, doomed I tell you. Keep up the good work.

Interesting captcha considering you're new position as coach. dinger
