Torso

The Sport

Well, the 7th Space Warning Squadron has opened up their soccor and softball league to us the humble contractors. I'm not sure what possessed me, but I signed up for both. I need to find those leg pad things that soccer player wear and a softball glove by tomorrow.

What a Day

Well, after work I dropped off the movies we rented last week, The Last Samurai and Scary Movie 3 and picked up something for this week. I anticipate both of these are crap, but they were free. I got From Dusk Till Dawn 3 and Intolerable Cruelty.

After the stop at Blockbuster, where I discovered I'd lost my rental card and had to get a new one issued to me, I went get some groceries. Upon leaving the store and loading the groceries into the trunk I shut my keys in the trunk as well. Doh! They were not in the main trunk area, but on the edging. Part of one key was sticking out the crack and the rest were pretty well stuck. I ended up having to break in/grab the metal and bend it a bit to get my keys. *sigh*

I ended up getting home from work at 9:57. By the time I put the groceries away and got to bed it was well after 10:30. I'd wanted to get in early Tuesday so I could talke to Mike a bit. Of course, now I need to decide if I should try to find a sporting goods store thats open this early. I need to get some of them spikey shoes too.

well

I got most of what I needed. I now have a softball glove, ball, leg guards and soccor socks. I wasn't able to find spikey shoes, I hope that sneakers work okay.

I had to go into the pits of hell(walmart) to get the glove. Everywhere else was sold out of anything that would fit my hand.

The first softball game is tomorrow night at 6:40. There is supposed to be a soccor game at like lunch time, but I've not heard a thing on that yet.

stuff

Well, I found some cleats but I wear a 10/6E or a 10.5/4E. It seems that cleats only come in standard widths, which I would need a 14 to get my foot into. They didn't have any 14s and I didn't think it would be such a good idea. I guess I'll have to settle for normal sneakers.

I did find some better soccer socks, and I got a new tennis racket. The one I have is from my mother in the 70s. Techonology has changed a bit. I'm almost afraid to hit something with this racket it so light, it might break. It claims to be titanium, though I wonder how much of it is. I also picked up what I hope are some comfortable clothes to play in tomorrow. I need to try and remember shower gear as well. I expect to be stinky after soccer.

I would really like a Kerry/McCain ticket, but McCain seems very against it and I'm not sure why. Any ideas?
