I had a blast at UVA, and Daddy Pose and Piper did a great job getting 100 kids down to Charlottesville, five states away, intact and largely unharmed. My arm hurts like a motherf-er still, and my thighs are on fire. It was awesome, though.
Team Awesome got creamed by Georgetown-Blue (a.k.a. the best Georgetown team). We lost 20-something to 1. But we got that one run in the first inning, so we were totally leading for half an inning. LEADING. Woohoo! But then we proceeded to lose. Big time. Ah well. Ultimately, Georgetown Blue ended up the #2 team there (they made it to the finals), so at least we got our ass handed to us by a team that was super good. :)
A break-down of the stuff that happened:
Highlight from the Rutgers game: Bigass Rutgers Guy is at the plate. He takes a huge swing...and misses. His teammate laughs and yells "Hey man, you look like my sister!" Bigass Rutgers Guy yells back "Juan, I knew your sister looked like a man!"
Injuries: My right arm hurts in ways I never knew it could. My ass apparently has muscles I never knew it had. And my mount of Jupiter is bright red and slightly tender.
