I need a break after that vacation! Let's start with the vacation... first is sucked because Dade made the All Star team and we had this vacation planned and thus we had to miss 2 of the 3 games! SUCK! Anyway The vacation ... we went to Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio ... mostly to ride the baddest coaster on the planet, Top Thrill Dragster. Now I've blogged it before but for those who don't know it goes from 0 to 120 in 4 seconds then you go straight up and I mean 90 degrees straight up for 420 feet. That's 4 stories folks! Then straight down with a twist for 420 feet then you stop and check your pants. It was the scariest ride I have been on bar none. The park was awesome clean and chock full of rides. A 200 foot coaster a 300 foot 92mph coaster and the biggest mass of wood I've ever seen in a coaster, there were 15 in all and it was great fun! We stayed for 2 days and had a blast.
Still not getting it? Watch this! it's 5 mins long but at the 3:40 mark it shows it going up the hill from right underneath and from that angle you can really get a sense of the speed on this thing... remember it's 42 stories high! It's up there in just a few seconds! --- You think that's bad there are signs saying you might not make it over the top... during testing one did not make it! Worse than that one time it got stuck! AT THE TOP! Video here I bet they were a little freaked!
Meanwhile back in Baytown the team was getting it handed to them. 16-0 then 16-1 loss... I was gutted. We had one game when we got home and we lost it 12-1. Now the kids played better but the parents behaved badly. Seems like there are always parents that are more about themselves than the kids. One parent got hostile after the game even claiming his kid didn't get a fair shake? There was a lot of crap going around and most was being stirred up by one dad. Personaly I am glad it's over. We need a baseball break and all the good vibes I had at the end of the regular season went out the window because of really 2 people. It's a shame to, their kid did not feel slighted even in the least. The thing was someone had to sit sometime, I guess they thought thier kid should not have been the one to sit. At any rate bring on the summer please!
I have been a bit too busy lately... I know the mantra, but it's true! Anyway Looks like we made the playoffs! We are supposed to go against the Central League 1st place team who has not lost a game all year. We can just do our best!
The Moms Vs. Sons game was last night. There was a small amount of rule bending but the Mom's team prevailed 11-9, the Dad's had a home run derby afterwards, we ordered pizza and everyone had a blast!
Our final game is 2pm on Saturday if anyone wants to come watch.
