Thinking about Summer...

So I cheated and started writing this early, saving it as a draft until Tuesday. Hopefully none of you read it while it was sitting there, but if you did it's OK. Since it's finals week, and I'm stressed out (yet still I'm procrastinating even further by sitting at my computer writing my damn blog instead of studying!) I decided to clean out my yahoo email account (which by the way has been in use since some of you were wearing diapers!). Am I ever glad I did it! Since I don't have much else to write about this week, and in the spirit of getting through the winter without slow-pitch softball, I give you...

Josh Lohnes don't mess around
You know he gonna try
to get on base some how....
But does he really wanna
Stand at tha plate and just
Take ball four....
Ya might try to put the ball in play
Because it's slow pitch softball and it ain't real hard....
They gave you a 2-2 count
Cause they wanted the game
To just move along......

K... Yaaaaaaa..

You think he walked you
Ohh, you think he walked you
But you just walkin' to the bench
After gettin' rung up!
I'm really mad,
Ohh, I'm really mad
That I wasn't there to see it and to give you some crap!
If what they say is "No one walks but the mailman"
Then what makes, Then what makes, Then what makes
Then what makes, Then what makes you take?
So why you, why you
Why you, why you, why you blame it on Dorie
When you know you just got punched out ..

Alright now fellas, (YEAH!)
Now what's cooler than bein' cool?
(FRO-ZEN!) I can't hear ya'
I say what's cooler than bein' cool?
(FRO-ZEN!) whooo...
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, alright
Alright, alright, alright, Ok now Josh (YEAH!)
We gonna break this down for you in just a few seconds
Don't let me see you take another called strike this season
I wanna see you on yo' most offensive behavior
You ain't got nothin', how 'bout them strikeouts!?

Take it, take, take, take it (UH OH)
Take it like Josh the leadoff hitter,
You got to take it (UH OH), take it,
Take it like Josh the leadoff hitter
Come on now take it (UH OH)

Damn... that's some funny shit! (This is a few years old, especially obvious w/ the reference to porno Mike, but I don't think Josh will ever live this down, especially since the email is now in the "Emails to Save" folder in my account).

So this reminded me to check out the UMSL Rec Sports page. They still have some pictures up from last year's softball tourney where we had to play on the grass by Mark Twain. Check us out waiting to play-- WTF!!! And apparently that's where they held the whole tournament this fall. Talk about going a program going downhill...



Mark your calendars for the weekend of February 16th-19th-- it's my return to the 'Lou (for 3 short days!) Is there a trivia night we can go to?!?!

I hate to be un-PC, but MERRY CHRISTMAS! I promise my post will be better next week ;-) I'm getting really riled up about the whole Dan Kolb situation up here, but for now I really do need to go write about the political future of Tunisia. I can summarize my findings in a few words-- Be glad you don't live there. Peace.

Softball stories are awesome. I encourage everyone to post their favorite softball stories here. I have two most memorable moments, both involving contributers to this site.

The first is Justin Rohour throwing a wet softball over the third base dugout from left field on a play at the plate. Still the single greatest throw I have ever seen (and by greatest I mean horriblest).

The other is the infamous Josh Lohnes inside the park home run on the girls softball field at UMSL. The fences are like 225' and he still managed to get his slowness all the way around. I'm pretty sure like three of the outfielders broke their leg and/or died on that play for Josh to make it.

"Air" Pellegrino playing some centerfield was pretty memorable down in the East Alton League. We beat those retarded kids by the skunk rule in the first game of the season, then we lost the rest of them. Tom Riney making all 3 outs in right field. Lots of great softball stories.
