"Please dear, your Auntie Mame is hung......"

And so am I.

After an EXCELLENT final dress for softball opening day - Kevin and I (Kevin is our 2nd baseman who is almost 100% recovered from knee surgery) decided to go to Fritz for a drink.
Well, needless to say, the Celtics game was on so I ended up staying until the game was over, which got me home WELL after midnight.
So, while I'm not really hung over, I feel like I've been hit by a small truck.
Old people need their sleep!!!!!

Speaking of old's Kevin's birthday today!!!!!


Here's a little something for you:

By the way - we were called "Discourteous C*nts" by a guy on another softball team (not in our league) because we wouldn't scrimmage them, or share the field with them.
Sorry, but whoever gets there first, gets the field.
And to be honest, at this point in the season, scrimmaging a giant team of straight guys woulnd't do a damn thing for us....we need to practice, not get slaughtered by a bunch of meatheads.
Maybe later in the season, but not this soon.

Initially there was a little bit of confusion as to whether they were entirely straight or not.
I'm not sure that "Discourteous C*nts" would be a straight guy's 'go-to insult' to a bunch of other guys.
Either way, it made for a GREAT laugh....once they were far away. ;-)

I'm not ready to give up on you people as far as yesterday's contest was concerned....there were a few GREAT guesses, but no one was correct.
Uncle Richard (not my real uncle - just a surrogate) gets a special shout out for quoting Val.
Absolutely hysterical....

Speaking of Uncle's a hint:

The show that the quote comes from ('Cause it's a lovely day') is from a show that Richard has been in before. I didn't see it (I was away at college when he was in it) but I know he was in it.

I'm sure he'll get it now...and if not, he'll call Brian M. and put him on the case.

OK folks....I'm going to get coffee. I got in here late, and need to play catch up.

I'm off to The Alley (YAY!) after work for a pre-opening day 'party' so I'll be sure and have a drink for you all.

Have a great weekend, and pray for decent weather!


PS - I just received word that the angry team from last night IS in fact a straight team, who just happened to get their asses handed to them last year by the only gay team in their league.

Most excellent.

I just watched a very awkward number from 9 to 5 on the View. It made me a little uncomfortable.

They opened last night and got 'ok' reviews. I bet the tourists will keep it going for a while.
I think it's a great cast, but I feel no need to see it.

"dicourteous c*nts" seems unnecessarily redundant. After all, how many courteous c*nts have you ever met?

The straight team is an aberration. Our team has been scrimmaging with a straight team for a couple of weeks and they are the nicest guys. In fact, two of their team members are now part of OUR team. So now, we have our limit of straight guys on our team.

As I write this little comment, it's opening day, and of course it's cold and rainy. What would opening day for our softball league be without it being a lousy weather day?

Good luck to you and your team John. Here's to playing against you folks during the season!

Once a discourteous cunt, always a discourteous cunt I guess. :-)
