Just something that amused me that they had a different name for something I thought was universal here.
I was waiting to see how long it would be for the request for money and it didn't take long. Here's our last conversation that ended very abruptly.
her: good morning my love
me: hehe morning!
her: did you sent the money?
me: There is a problem with Western Union.
her: try again i am wanting be with you in. Please please send fast
me: $5,000 is a lot of money. I only have $14.40 in my bank account. I can send that.
her: your friends help you for money so we together?
me: I owe them money so I don't think they will.
her: agency is loaning 3000 today. Ipay you back 2000 with my job from agency work
me: Ok. I will send $20.00.
her: NO sum is 2000.00 or We won't together if you won't help. Are you understand this?
me: Can you wait until November? I sell cans back for $1.55 a pound; I can use the money from that to buy your ticket!
her: [disconnects chat]
Haven't heard from her since! Have you gotten any of these e-mails?
An ambulance was called in to the T-Ball field because a spectator wasn't feeling well. An odd thing to see an ambulance driving on the fields. I hope she's alright.
They now play the Lady Barons coached by John. A win here and they go to the championship game next Saturday. Haven't been to one in rec season since 2002 - Yikes!
Heather changed real quick and we went to the grass volleyball tournament. The field right next to the freeway by San Diego High School. Only access is through a tunnel to by the City College gym. Heather only missed one match (they had lost) then two matches left and they won.
A weird mixture where the 3rd set, they had a "friendly" game in which they mixed players from the teams to play.
I'm thinking of what to do!
4/30/07: I still don't know what's going on with all this after all this, so I'm using my own advice that it's easier to cut a thread than to saw through a chain.
Our school had the stoner/smoker tree, the ASB, the club hang outs, cafeteria, front lawn, in the back (make-out) corner, courts, benches, detention, parking lot, Senior lawn, concession area, etc...
San Diego Union Tribune Article
I was, so I headed to my favorite bookstore, and took a seat. Just look in the disease and weight loss section. Now, let's get back to the secrets...
Remember, the infomercial is hook #1, then you buy the book (hook #2) that really doesn't give you the 'whole' picture on the cures, but directs you to the website (hook #3) that tries to get you to finally look behind the curtain (for a small fee of course) to see the great OZ! But wait! Isn't that why you bought the book?
The price is $9.95 per month or $999 for a lifetime membership. Great marketing! Look him up on Google and see what you find.
Secrets? Let me see...Exercise, eat healthy, get plenty of rest, relax, reduce stress, etc...Did I just spill the beans? Or, are these these "common" sense? Oh, there is a mention about nude sunbathing!
Tomorrow, I'm going to tell you the secrets of "Getting Rich! What 'they' don't want you to know."

You would get those standard local channels and then you get to choose "ALA CARTE," all the rest of the channels. It's already done with the premium channels -HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, etc...so it wouldn't be difficult.
While you guys are at it, fill the screen on the TV. It's possible to tell when the signal goes from HD to standard. Just do it!
Oh, since I'm on this, have another option on the selection guide -"Change channel to view show." How many times have you set a reminder for a show and missed the little pop-up, sound, etc because you were doing something else. This way, your show would come on automatically after your little pop-up. Of course, you get a yes, no option. :)
Think it would work?
Christy asked that I toss balls at the girls while she coached them. I tossed a "short" ball at Heather and it re-opened a knee owie, I felt bad because I hurt my kiddo. The team really liked that I set the them "5's" for spiking drills and the they were really CKDing the ball (Crush, Kill, Destroy). An excellent way for the girls to let out some frustration. I get a kick how before each practice they circle up and have their own daily recap telling each other what problems, issues, or just plain gossip they have to share.
I also saw a friend of mine from college and he now coaches volleyball at Otay Ranch. Plus, a mutual friend had just found me on mySpace just recently.
More and more executive type decisions are popping up - think long run, big picture, cause of problem, solutions!
I wanted to stop by Krispy Kreme and let them know that their fruit filling skills are lacking because several of mine didn't have any fruit! I saw the the little hole but nothing in there I ate the whole thing, it wasn't hiding.
Softball Play-Off's winding down finally. Congrats Mariah on hitting a GRAND SLAM versus Chula Vista!
And...you're welcome for the sudoku stuff, thanks for visiting.
Constructive criticism is welcome. Hmmm...
I hadn't run since Thursday night and I didn't feel like it tonight either but I just got my shorts, running shoes, and got my butt out the door. The sky was very clear, and I could see the stars glimmering. It wasn't cold enough for the gloves but I wore them anyways. No dogs, nobody, it was really quiet. There are four lights out, and one that is possessed and turns off and on at weird moments. I miss Gwen Stefani practicing at Coors; my friend told me that it was her the past week. Evidently she wanted to practice in the same conditions that the concert would be taking place.
Someone left their car headlights on...I rang the doorbell, but nobody came out. So, they're gonna wake up to a dead battery.
I beat my individual sprint lap (lap 7 of 8), but was slower on my overall time. Oh, well. It had to happen since I knew that I couldn't keep lowering my times.
I HAVE to take that photo down by the Broadway pier that I want so that I can post it here. If it's clear, then head over to the little spot in Coronado so I can take a San Diego Bay photo. You've probably seen them, but I want to take my own.
What do you have planned for this weekend?
Girl: Uh, honey what do you want?
Guy: Diet Coke, please.
Girl: Uh no, I heard that is more badder for you and you will get fatterer.
Guy: Laughs. No that's why it's called DIET, duh, and that's why people with diabetes can only drink that.
Girl: But the news said that like it was though.
What have you overheard that sounded funny?
I've installed the game but haven't played it. I was just too tired to learn all the stuff at that very moment. I got home from VBall (Coach Christy gave me a team shirt for helping out), Softball and watched "Heroes" and zonked out right there on the couch. I woke up about 5:00 a.m. and the TV screen saver was on. I missed my run, oh darn. :)
Heather has her first play-off game TODAY against Ross ("Da Bomb") and she told me they have to win because she has a dance on Thursday! Our first grass Volleyball tournament at 9:00 a.m this Saturday and a 9:00 a.m. softball play-off game, IF they win. Hmmm. What to do? Based on my logic, I'd go to the softball game, then hustle to the rest of the volleyball games (downtown 17 miles away) after that since VBALL isn't play-off time yet. But that's me...
Everything is set for All-Star season with all the tournaments set. Only thing now is to see if she decides to try-out for 14U (Moves Up), or trys out for the 12U (age appropriate). There's always that uncertainty as the girls ask each other what they are going to try out for.
If she doesn't make it then maybe we can play some mixed doubles beach volleyball, huh? :)
I put down my book and just wondered at what age babies "understood." I searched the aisle and found several books but chose this one to look at because I didn't need a doctoral dissertation on the matter, just something to see how difficult it would be to teach a child to sign.
I read the whole book, and figured the baby probably could have "told" mom what was wrong, if they had worked on some simple signs. If I'm ever a dad again, I'll be sure to try this out. Or, maybe...
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Baby Sign Language (More Info)
Do you think this really works?
I saw other people at the book store that were at the game. I got introduced to a friends mom and spoke a little Spanish, but ended up getting teased about it the next day.
Many of my friends are hooked on sudoku, so I decided to give them their daily fix for FREE on my bloggie! I hope you enjoy the fruits of a geeky programmer. Exercise for you brain is good!
But since, they aren't shooting sports, I'm REALLY recommending the Rebel xTi - More MEGAPICKLES and less moola for THEIR use and need.
$1,188 USD (IM from international mentioned I didn't mention what country) See what I got myself into?
Oh, I just saw a Sigma 14+ megapixel camera for $1,700. Just amazes me how quickly the pixel count has gone up and will continue rise, and the memory cards have to keep up.
We were down to only 10 giant bags of the turf dirt to help soak up the moisture, and we ran out. Game time was only 20 minutes away and the decision is made to go to Petco and buy about 15 giant bags of kitty litter! Yup, exactly what you think it is -"Poop Dirt!" Used it all up on the infield and only delayed the game 20 minutes or so. All the games were played everyone was happy.
It did look funny with coaches standing in the middle of the pile of litter. Lots of jokes made about that. :)
We had a "bye" and don't play until Tuesday night.
Based on that info, I set up an experiment to see how long it will take to get at one contact from each state, or country maybe two or three from large metro areas to add me or IM me. Here are my screen names for the experiment:
- Yahoo - SamzBlog
- Hotmail - SamzBlog
- AIM - SamzBlog
- GoogleTalk - SamzBlog
- ICQ - 460334277
I'll post the progress. I may not answer immediately if I'm not here, but I will answer you, when I return.
How long do you think it will take? (Hours, Days, Weeks, Months, Years, Never, Dude this is stupid!)
12:45 p.m. Got (Many International)/National IMs already. I'm predicting Weeks.
I forgot my badge, and luckily security knows me and I had no hassles. I visited more people today and I got compliments on both my weight and being dressed up. The ladies told me that they would make sure that I looked nice...uh.
Happy 18th Birthday, Ria! How time flies...Next stop, Oklahoma State Cowboys. We'll have up to five years to come watch one of you games live, huh, or see you on ESPN!
A guy scared me on my run tonight, he was wearing one of those full suits with a hood that make you sweat. He just popped around the corner and ran on people's lawn. No burning space debris today unlike last night. Haven't seen a mention on the news about it.
My idea about instant warnings via communication device is being implemented already and looked at by other institutions. Adapt quick!
No lunch time blogging for me tomorrow; after my night time run, probably. Oh crap! I didn't finish loading up the laptop. Now, I'm in trouble! Good Night! I can't wait for that dang phone to start ringing in the morning, and scarying the heck outta me. If I'm totally out of it, I answer it...DOH!
What wakes you up in the morning? (Buzzer, Music, Phone, Pet, Partner, Nothing, etc..)
Synergy was down 1-0 but tied it up 1-1 late in the game and then pulled ahead 3-1, in the 6th. In the bottom of the 7th inning, the Babes with bats, had runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs, with their #3 hitter at bat.
Not a good situation to be in for Synergy, right? Well, the batter hit the ball to deep left, and the left-fielder caught it, for the 1st out! She threw it to second and got the second out! And finally, the second baseman caught the runner going back to 1st for the third out. A TRIPLE PLAY!
Last week Synergy loses to the LAST place team and then this week beats the FIRST place team. Go figure! Oh...Synergy finished in 1st Place. Hope they win four straight in the tourney.
Heather went 2-3 with an RBI.
Every night I get an email telling me how bad or well my portfolio did the previous day. It's good to to see a little green arrow pointing up for a change.
Now, will everyone in the market start taking profits tomorrow? (checking tomorrow after the market opens doesn't count! lol)
Many sites are blocked to prevent viruses, installing programs, games, etc...But, my question for you is:
What sites do you go to at work that may raise eyebrows?
The killer followed the law and filled out the required forms and showed ID. He had no criminal record so nothing would have come up on a background check. He wasn't involuntarily committed into a mental institution so that didn't raise any flags but even if he had, he mostly likely would have lied on the form. He waited the required time before the second handgun.
Iraq has shown us that a determined individual with their mind set on killing - will! Today, 171 died in Baghdad. We have over 100,000 troops and they can't stop them and the troops are looking/prepared for that.
Some instantly bring up gun control, but weapons on the streets are readily available, just as drugs are. Yes, it would have made it a little more difficult, but he had a mission.
Agree or Disagree???
I was waiting for my order and a lady could have put the money in the little jar, but waited until the cashier was waiting/helping the next customer. She said, 'Thanks.'
What do you think?
The President of the United States, Congressmen, Governor, and other high level officials are there so it's good that they took the time. But, I'd hate to think they are making this a political opportunity.
We live just a few miles from each other and talked about carpooling to downtown, and running by the San Diego Bay before work. I already know how long that will last - one week, or so. I guess if they wimp out then I could still do my night run before I go to sleep.
One week, two? You want in on the bet???
I remember when I had just graduated from High School and James Huberty killed 21, and hurt about the same amount at McDonalds in San Ysidro, the very same one that I bought large fries, and a strawberry sundae with my friends. He was down and out and just walked to the restaurant. One of my teachers called me at home wondering if I was ok, but I wasn't home. I was with my girlfriend buying a new outfit for her. I didn't hear until I got home.
And how did the word spread when it happened this time? CNN, MySpace, facebook, IM, email, text and phone, etc...
The weird thought that I had was that some disturbed person will not just try to kill himself but also take out as many as they can with them. My buddy said something to the effect that I was wrong.
People seem to have accepted (not shown on the news 24/7) that your friends might get killed in an auto accident or drunk driver; it happens more often. But, if they die in group, in a place where things like this shouldn't happen, does it hurt that family any more?
Sadly, I think that a movie theater, mall, parade, park, sporting event, etc...where it's impossible to search everyone will be next for the mass murderer. This is just one more way to die that shouldn't be and now throw in copycats wanting their eternal fame and it just increases the chances.
I believe that that a new warning system will be implemented at schools. You will be required to provide your cell number so that the administration can broadcast a text message to your phone in case of an emergency.
What do you think?
What did they change after all this time? They did this in three years: Dockable File Explorer, Dockable Search Results and Tool Output, Tabbed document selector and clip library, Re-sizable Find/Replace dialogs, Drag and drop reordering of document tabs, Configurable environment variables, Vista 64 compatibility, and finally partial URLs are now syntax highlighted.
Even if you're not a programmer, you know that that's not a lot. But, I still like it and will continue to use it.
As I was walking onto the court, Heather tells me that my phone is ringing. It was the contracting office. They are preparing the paperwork! Woohoo. The call came after the government 4:00 p.m. (go home time) so I wasn't expecting it.
At practice, the girls lined up in three lines and I stood in the middle of the other side and served ball after ball at them at moderate speed to see if they could pass the ball to the setter. After doing that in shotgun fashion, I was sweating and my arm was sore. I really liked yelling, "Balls!" and the girls would run and fill up the basket.
After practice Christy said that I could sign the practice ball but I declined :) I had taken a pair of running shoes to practice because one of the moms asked if I would join her but I really enjoy helping out the team, though.
Heather and I stopped by Krispy Kreme and got a dozen. I let her pick what she wanted and I filled up the rest. I dropped her off and then headed down to the fields to help oversee the All-Star election. We tallied up the votes, called the managers, and headed out!
I did my second night run, but this time with my gloves. My hands didn't freeze this time, so that was something not to worry about. Overall, my time was four minutes faster and the dogs didn't bark at me tonight, even though they were out.
The fedex guy stopped by to drop off the Dell laptop but I wasn't there. He did leave me a little sticky note on my door, though - how nice! I hope he comes in the morning!
These changes alone would not warrant people to flock to the 40D from the 30D, or even 20D. The typical purchaser might be new, own a D60, 10D, or rebel.
Check the prices of the 30D, if you see many "blow-out" specials you know that dealers are trying to clear inventory for the 40D. I'd really call it the 35D for such a small incremental change if the rumors are true.
The real question is, "What are you going to take pictures of?" Regardless what the answer is, you can do it with the lowest end Canon/Nikon digital SLR out there. How fancy a camera do we need to take pictures of the dogs, cats, landscapes, sports, etc...
When the 30D came out, my local Fry's had the 20D for about $400 less and included a memory card to help clear out the old. A deal is coming soon.
The order states that a signature is required but when I got home yesterday, the box with the mouse was sitting right on my door step. It wasn't in the nook, but right smack on the door. Geez, thanks. I hope the laptop isn't left on my doorstep like that.
Speaking of nook, the pigeon is gone. Poof, I don't know where he is. I didn't kill him as many suggested that I do. If all the pigeon wanted was a tiny spot to take shelter then I guess that was ok by me. I guess he healed and then left?
The backyard looks better now and I used the blower to get rid of the dust. The "yerba buena" has almost taken over the entire west section of the sitting bench area. It has a mind of its own where it wants to grow.
I felt embarrassed because I zonked out on the couch; my friend watched a movie with me snoring? Oops - bad host! I didn't even check out their new camera.
In some respects this is similar to "American Idol" where it's fun to watch the really bad singers at the beginning. "Ninja Warrior" has all kind of characters that have no chance to complete even the first stage, failing within seconds of starting.
A new round just started so they change the obstacles to make it more difficult. Doesn't it seem that even with a billion channels someone will says, "There's nothing on!" Let's use the blockbuster and get a movie...
OH! I got an email this morning bright and early about that project I mentioned yesterday. She looked me up and contacted me first thing in the morning, not at my personal address but at the league address. What ever works, huh?
I was on the court area with the team and helped out unofficially by being an extra set of eyes to help out Christy. I know that Monday's practice isn't going to be easy.
After the games, Heather and I went to catch a game of softball down at Discovery. It's the first day of the play-offs for the Minor, and Mini-Minors; the Majors start next week. It seemed really quiet, maybe once it gets closer to the finals things will pick up!
The dog at the corner barked each time I passed and I saw a couple parked on the street with foggy windows. I guess they got used to me running around, because they didn't drive away again. I noticed one of the street lights flickering on and off, and performers rehearsing at Coors. It's a little farther than my usual route but I think that I like it better. I'll do the other one when I try to better my time, again.
Got a long day tomorrow, uh, today. Good Night.
They needed someone ASAP, and all the people they tried to hire had some but not all the required skill sets on the SOW (Statement of Work). She asked what vehicle (government term for 'Method') that they would be able to procure my services through. I gave her the details and also references in the contracting department. She knows all the people in the government that I've contracted with so that should make things a little easier.
I gave her my e-mail addy, so let's see what happens. No chicken counting until I see the RFQ (Request for Quote). Wish me luck.
At her next on base, Mariah was at third and she was leading off, and a HARD line drive was headed right for her chest. She was charging for home and had just enough time to extend her hand to deflect/block the ball. We all heard the thud of the hit, and Mariah was on the ground instantly.
Everyone stood around for several minutes over her while the coaches checked her out, and made sure that she was alright. She's a tough cookie, and they bandaged up her right hand heavily and continued the game and ended up making it home. The coach took her out of the game but they still won easily 18-1? I can't wait to see her play college ball.
She'll be ok! But it sure looked really scary.
Now, we have flashy countdown timers on our myspace. Next, they will be on our phones and you will be able to send them as a "media" message.
I'm glad I did - someone had to take the first step and I didn't want to wait for them to. I missed talking/IM, etc... with them.
4/13/07 I got my call today so things are ok now :)
Heather gets a triple at her first at bat and then scores on next play. That would be it, they lost 4-1 (three runs score on a overthrow to 1st), dropped to 2nd place, but can still regain 1st if they win on Wednesday, or drop to 3rd if they lose.
The planetarium is my favorite! Ever since I sat in the domed building at Southwestern College when I was in 5th grade, I've been interested in the vastness of it all. Probably gonna spend the whole day there it seems :)
I've noticed that the younger people rarely hold a door even if that person is a foot behind them, they just let the door close in their face.
Have you seen this? How about your neck of the woods?
Can the guys sue for defamation? Should the woman's face be plastered all over? Who's fault was this? Media? Over zealous District Attorney seeking..what?
Millions of dollars are at stake so I see more lawsuits in the future or some deals being cut. I don't think grandma is walking away.
Through out the day, two major advertisers were so upset over the incident that they made an announcement that they were canceling their sponsorship. If they were so concerned they would have just pulled their ads silently to disassociate themselves. End of story, right?
But the IMUS scandal this has turned out to be really good for those advertisers. Almost all the news stations, internet sites are naming them. They're getting free advertising the longer this all lasts.
Other advertisers dropped their spots unnamed. So, which was the best way?
I went to Google Maps to see if there is good dirt (that word makes me grin) trail and see where they lead, but they didn't even have my house plotted on it after THREE YEARS. So, I went to Microsoft Virtual Earth and punched in my address; it mapped the wrong house. No biggie, just moved the pushpin over. But it showed my place! I can CLEARLY see everything from all four directions. I told my friend that I could even see myself on the trail; you have to pick the south view, and look on the trail.
I liked that google maps will let me punch in GPS coordinates and I couldn't see how to do that in the Microsoft Maps. Some mashups and it can be coded to plot automatically.
The plan is to code a gps enabled mobile os device to transmit wirelessly to the internet and report-in in realtime, or everytime it stops and plot. My current version, drivers have to manually scan a trip log (a sheet with stops barcoded) when they arrive at a destination.
Yes, I'm a geek!
Less than a month for All-Star try-outs: how time flies. Districts (6/22-6/24) will be hosted by Bonita Valley, and State in Lancaster(7/6-7/8) and Nationals (7/29-8/5) for the 12U in Phoenix, Az. The 14Us go to Ft. Stockon, Ca.
We should have a strong team again this year since most of the 12U National team is trying out again. One step at a time!
Synergy has two games left and they can still lose that spot if they get beaten by the 0-10 team. It wouldn't be a good way to start heading into the play-offs, huh?
Have a good one! :=)
But you don't really care about that. We're going to the movies in a second but we had to post a little video of the first ride we went on. There's a litte profanity but you'll get the idea!
X - The Ride! (YouTube) and Tatsu - My Fav (YouTube). Riddler/Batman has been de-throned.
Heather is laughing because she slept a majority of the way up to Magic Mountain and I woke her up as we are near the exit. We can see "X," the ride she wants to ride but not first. We wander around and look for a bathroom, and it seems the line for the bathroom is longer than for the rides!
I asked her what ride she's most anxious about and she says, "X." Guess what ride we get on first? Yup, "X," Get it out of the way! Spinning in all directions teaches you to force yourself taut against the pads, or you bounce around a bit!
The lines were shorter than any time that I've been there and we managed to get on all the rides we wanted to except for Superman. We are NEXT to ride, and we hear, "We are experiencing 'Minor' technical difficulties and we don't know how long it will take. You can continue to wait if you like." After two or three messages, we leave.
No stress, Let's ride "Riddler's and Batman!" Look! Superman is working lol. Lunch and then for the final ride of the day - Tatsu. Meet some kids from Temecula and those are the two we "adopted" to ride with us; sandwiched them between me and Heather. They had to fight to see how got to sit next to her.
As we're racing to go look at our ride photo, someone taps me on shoulder. "Hi Sam!!" lol. I can't hide can I?
Drive through for Heather for her flurry, but she gets the pillow and blanket. Zonk...She's out.
I should be sleeping now since we have a three hour drive, but I can't sleep. I bet I'll be yawning all he way up there. I'm taking the camera tomorrow so let's see how many rides I can get! Later People!
Updated 4/7/07 11:10 a.m by Heather - "He got ZERO. Let me clarify - ZILCH, ZERO, GOOSE-EGG, NADA, BLANK!" But we got some cool ride pictures of us!
"1 If more than 5 GB/line/month are used, we presume use is for non-permitted uses and reserve the right to terminate service immediately."
That works out to 5gb/30 = apx 166mb per day. That's a pretty weak figure for "unlimited."

What do you think?
Speaking of videos, she's sending me videos to my myspace account of the rides that people have taken. lol...
Should I take the camera?
After 30 minutes or so, the phone was working. The 18 year old girl was glad that I didn't bite her head off for messing up three times, and having to constantly refer to the manual (I could hear her pause and look) for everything. But I couldn't resist when she said, "You have a nice phone!" I responded, "What do you think of the buttons on the keypad?" She said, "I haven't seen the phone." Then we both laughed.
I thanked her for activating the phone and she thanked me for being patient and not yelling at her.
Now, I'm pharting around with learning the phone and such. I plan on getting a little memory card so I can put some mp3s on it. I'm not too happy with the little case I bought so, but oh well.
It's been a long time since she set foot in a court so I gave her a refresher on how to hold, swing and stand. It didn't take long before she was smacking the ball hard. I'll post some little videos here shortly. We played for an hour and a half. I think we will both remember these: "uh oh...Where's Heather?!" then finally she got her turn..."uh oh...Where's daddy! Nobody home!" Little brat isn't she? We'll have to do that again soon.
A quick lunch at Wendy's and then off to Volleyball. Ramon (25) and I helped Coach Christy (21) through the practice. It's fun to help out and give the girls some tough play to get them ready. Then Heather got some individualized setting pointers. A bunch of "old" people giving her instruction. She listened.
I just got a call from the gym and they wanted to know if I was interested in signing her up?! Not now. She's very busy at the moment!
Oh! I got invited to play indoor volleyball in the evening at Otay Ranch High School with the adults. Some two on two and I don' t know if there is some 6 v 6. Heather thinks I'm an old phart but I can still play!
I reserved the court today so that we can play, then get a bite to eat before we head over to Volleyball practice. Heather can't wait and I have all the stuff ready to go (I carry them in the car anyway :) No softball practices/games this week.
The one I played on the league was very successful. I received numerous calls, e-mails, and guestbook entries showing that people had fallen for it. As per Heather's advice, I didn't approve any guestbook entries until after I had taken down the joke.
Several years ago, my girlfriend and I took down the main page and put up a "goodbye notice," telling everyone that we had defected to BV's biggest rival at the time - PQ. People couldn't believe it!
The girls got to wear their uniforms today for their second tournament. They played at 2:00 p.m. in the small gym (only one court).
The girls showed much improvement and confidence. Heather got of 6 of 7 jump serves in(practice and game), and we were trying to get her to do more in the game. She's the captain/setter and if you know her, then you also know she means business when it comes to competing.
They won the first match convincingly, and lost the second match due to poor receiving and morale went south. It seems they took out their frustration on the team they played last because they smoked them.
Second tournament, 2nd place again. Since some of the girls left after the final, the coach is making them have practice tomorrow instead of giving them some time off.
Sunday, April 1st, 2007. 12:01 a.m. New League!
We are pleased to announce new and exciting changes to the league today. As you may be aware our board has voted (23-1) to merge with the new Eastlake ASA. The new name for the league will be "Bonita Lake!" This brings our total player count from 800 to 1200!!! 100 of these players are boys since we are not allowed to deny them participation.
In order to accommodate the surge in players, the playground will be removed and a new field added in its place. We couldn't agree on a name for the field so for now, it will be called field 4, until we let the girls decide on a name. Unfortunately, we didn't sell enough carne asada tacos on Saturday to pay for additional parking. However, we have been given the use of a special "Softball Bus" that will run on game days. You can easily recognize the bus speeding down the road because it will be the one with all the bat bags on the roof!
In addition, we have added one more division: Tiny-Tot (2U/3U). The main purpose of this division is to prepare our future stars for the highly competitive T-Ball. Applications are available at the snackbar beginning on Monday (Space is limited to first come first served). Those that don't make it will be placed on the priority waiting list!
And finally; I know a lot of changes, we will no longer be using "official umpires." Parents will be required to go through the Bonita Lake Umpire Training School (BLUTS) for short. Having our parents ump will save thousands of dollars per year and of course result in less "messed up" calls!
Thanks and we hope you enjoy the new changes! Please leave a guestbook comment for feedback!
