Final Game

We put our final game in the books tonight and it was a loss. We started out strong scoring some runs then gave up 6 in the second to take a 1 point deficit. We gave up another 3 in the third. We were never able to come back although we did add a few runs in the sixth to get closer. We ended up losing by four runs. So we end our season 4-4-2. The fat kid I benched last game had a mysterious "Ankle Injury".. so he did not play. He asked if he could play the last inning but I said it was too late. I am not sure if that is the rule or not but the team was a lot less disruptive without him.

No real poker last night. I think I am going to do a set of 10 136-man RUSH 4.40's and see if I can score some scratch. If I focus on these and do not play as risky at the end I think I can do well.

My second Week Four run is tonight too. Same thing as the first week so it should be easy. At least I know it is achievable now. The five minute runs I was dreading. So basically I think I am safe until next week. It then gets BRUTAL. It starts out with 3 five minute runs with walks in between. It then moves to 2 eight minute runs. The final achievement in week five is a TWENTY MINUTE RUN! TWENTY FUCKING MINUTES! Four times what I am doing right now and twice what I will have ever tried!!!! OMG! After that they just tack on minutes until you are cruising for 30 minutes or your 5K. I think Week five is the Heartbreak Hill of this program. I would LOVE to conquer it! We shall see what happens.

Well I won't say I am amazed. But, compliments all around. I thought your baseball decision amazing. You might not be ready to coach the bigs. Well, Chicago may be workable. But, I think you did a hell of a job of teaching young minds a lot more than how to work a double play.

As to the exercise, you are alive and that carried decent odds. Well done!
