The I-90, One-Day, Round-Trip, Back-To-Back Weekends, Bubba...goes to Mike Fuchs: Mike gets this Bubba for driving to and from State Tournaments in Anaconda, on Saturday, on back to back weekends. Two weekends ago, Mike drove to Anaconda, on Saturday morning, for the +35 State tourney. He played 3 games, won 1, lost 2, on field 3, and drove home to Missoula Saturday evening. Last weekend, (sing along, you know the words) Mike drove to the State C tourney, in Anaconda, on Saturday morning, played 3 games, won 1, lost 2, on field 3, and drove home to Missoula on Saturday evening. Mike is going to the State +40 tournament in Great Falls with us, on August 25-26. God Bless Great Falls, as they never send anyone home on Saturday. In fact, in Great Falls, you have to win a game, in order to get out of the tournament.
The "As The World Turns," "Days of Our Lives," Coin-Flip-Soap Opera, Bubba...goes to James: Unbelievable!!?? It does not matter that James did not win the first coin toss, or even that we were not home team any of the 3 games we played. That will never matter. Once James gets his bubble back between the lines, the coin flips will start coming our way. What matters..... is that for the coin toss at the start of our 2nd game.....James was MIA, man overboard and lost at sea again, He was nowhere to be found?? Of course we lost that coin toss and the subsequent toss for the 3rd game. The Softball Gods take a no-show very personally. It is one level worse than being there, winning the coin toss, and choosing to bat first. They don't like that either, but at least you were there to honor their presence. Who knows how long the Softball Gods will consequence us? We may not win another flip till halfway through the 2008 softball season..There is a lot riding on James' off-season behaviors. Jeff has requested to step in and take over the coin toss honors...if only Jeff would have been there on time for that 1st game.......which leads us to our next Bubba
