All-Star

My life is amazingly hectic when you consider the fact that I don't really do anything at all. Last night was Wednesday night softball with the company softball team. I think I turned in arguably the greatest single performance in co-ed slowpitch softball history. This will be argued, no doubt, for generations by the lucky 4 fans in the stands that witnessed this magnificent event. If I wasn't hitting singles into center field, or snagging scorching line drives out of the air and doubling up the foolish runner on second who thought the ball might get by my cat-like reflexes, I was probably sitting on the bench waiting for my turn to bat... but I digress... The point is, I was amazing. I played outfield, short stop and even pitched the last inning to seal the deal. We lost 17-7.

I suppose today is April fools day now and I've never really understood this one. I've been celebrating October fools day for years now, but it doesn't seem to be catching on... It's October 9th by the way... it goes back to my German roots where upon no German has ever celebrated that day for any particular reason... just me... I digress again... My point is, I don't know why the rest of the world decided that this will be the one day where everyone will attempt to make everyone else look foolish. And I am waaaaaaaaay to lazy to google it. So if someone else could do the leg work for me on this one, I'd appreciate it. When did this conspiracy start and why. And more importantly, how can we stop it? I have assembled a small team of ninjas (they are each about one inch tall) and a deceptively quick penguin to execute what ever plan we can come up with to end what I consider one of the stupidest celebrated days of the year. There is no need for it, so lets tighten up this ship and lose the slack... Who's with me? I know Alpha Team is on board.
