Numi on deck

Eris and Mr. Eris got this brilliant idea about a month ago to form a coed softball team to play in a local league. I guess the rules specified that there must be one old grandma on each team because I was recruited to play.

Tonight was our first game. It was windy, cloudy and cold but the Army Ants (name came from The Big Bang Theory) were victorious! Final score, 11 to 3!

Athena, Eris, the Duchess and Casi all play, along with spouses and in-laws. And of course, a few ringers thrown into the mix. Eris pitched, Athena was catcher, the Duchess played a mean second base and Bubba covered short-stop. Casi and I played outfield but she stole the show when she caught a high fly ball.

Looking forward to next week when hopefully I can stay upright after hitting the ball. Ugh.

Love it! Looks like so much fun. I miss my co-ed softball days.

It was so so much fun! I was a little nervous at first but we did FANTASTIC!!! Thanks Eris and Mr. Eris for putting this together!

Oh and I love that we can scream "GO Grandma!" at you!

I was nervous the whole time - but I LOVED every minute!!!!

Eris said...

It rocked. Muriel, I wish you could play with us.

{sniff, sniff} me too. Maybe next season I'll just move down for a couple months. Or commute. It's not that far, is it?
