  • They call us the "Diamond Dogs"! I haven't been able to play with my new Wed night team for 3 weeks now, due to rainouts and hockey conflicts. Making up for that tonight - we have a Triple-Header - 3 games, beginning at 7:35 p.m. and going until after 11. I am so ready!

    The "Dawgs" are 0-4, having had 4 other games rained out. My Sunday night team, the Diamond Flames, started out 0-4, then ran off a string of 6 straight wins. I'm hoping similarly we get the "Dawgs" on track tonight.

    I'll be playing 3rd Base and Left Field, so I should get lots of action in the field. I love playing 3rd Base - it totally requires living in the moment. That ball gets to you in a hurry off the bat, so you have to be ready.

    We're playing on "Face-Plant Field" tonight, and I'm wearing my White House Suit - but I do have my softball uniform with me, and will be changing into that, God-willin'!

    I love it that I'm 57 years old, and still able to go out and play 3 games of softball at night after 9 hours at work, with guys half my age. I plan to keep doing this until I can no longer do it.

    I spent too many years wishing I could play ball, but never being able to make the time in my life to do it. I was too busy with other life commitments to spend the time doing one of the things I love to do more than anything else.

    Today, I'm living like it's my last year on this planet, and I'm making the time for the things I love. Tonight, I'm leaving it all out on the field.

    They call us the "Diamond Dogs" - woof, woof! Play ball!
