Start Cancelled

Well, I woke up at 8:30 am with the intent of throwing game 2 of my double header only to find out that it rained through the night.  Our games were cancelled.  This is extremely frustrating to me as I have about a 36-hour pre game mentally.  I take my starts pretty seriously as it's the only time I see the field as a player.

To fill the day out, my suitemates and I were going to lift over at the field house only to realize that it closed at 1 pm on Sundays.  Not too happy about that, we searched for a gym somewhat near us.  We found one 15 miles away.  It worked out really nicely as the owner didn't even make us pay as long as we helped get his name out to people.  Elite Fitness Center in New Jersey is a damn fine establishment.

Other than that, I'd like to congratulate my brother Ryan on graduating high school today.  Wish I could have been there to see him walk, partly because there's a shot he would have tripped.  He knows what this game means to me and he's fine with me missing a ceremony.  We had our good times together in high school and that's more important to him.

Finally, I'd like to thank everyone who's called or texted me regarding this blog.  Especially the post yesterday.  I think it's something everyone needed to know as I'm kind of tired of telling the story, and I needed to get some feelings out.  Have a safe weekend everyone.


  1. nice blog dude, keep up the good work

  2. Thats cool about not having to pay for the gym! Your brother sound like an understanding and good guy.

  3. I can understand your disappointment. My girlfriend plays softball at college and last month it rained every other day. I think she had something like 6 games cancelled. Stay motivated, it'll be worth it!

  4. Sounds like a pretty awful day. Sorry, bro.
