I haven't posted for more than a month, so I guess I should give an update on how things are going.

We're into the playoffs for the kickball season.
We didn't end the regular season with a very good record: 2 wins, 5 losses, 1 tie.
Most of the games could have gone either way, but things just never seemed to work out.


Playoffs are here and everyone starts back at square one. Single elimination by the way.


The score was 1-0. The only run came in the first inning when I was up to bat. Bases loaded and two outs.
I was walked and Paul came skipping into home. We played tough defense after that with a few 3 up 3 down innings.

As great as it was to win, this was definitely the most controversial game we've played.
We had a player ejected. Yes, thats right, one of our teamates was ejected from a kickball game. Long story that doesn't need to be here.
We got caught accidentally fielding only 3 girls (rules say you need 4). The refs usually check before the inning starts but no one noticed until we had 2 outs on the other team. The league president happened to be there when it happened and even she couldn't find a rule for what to do for a penalty, so they did nothing.
Needless to say there were some heated arguments. The ejection happened soon after.

Here's the bracket for the playoffs. I'll update it as soon as I get all the scores:

# re: Playoffs

So why don't you tell them why you only had 2 girls to field for the game?
