Was that not the meaning of your previous identity? Blessed is the man whose quiver is full. Life is all about my two girls.

Cleaning jail cells at the police station my senior year of high school. Deserved it after totaling 2 cars as the sole driver before I had my license. Scared straight.

Easier on the arms and shoulders but hard on the hips. My daughter developed snapping hip syndrome. Her sports med people were team doctors for the Chicago Bandits, whose pitchers were also being treated for this ailment caused by repetitive movement.

In game two, as I pointed out at the time, there were no hbp's. I thought the umps moved the strike zone out away from the batters and Haylie wisely took advantage of the zone that was being called. In game three I thought the difference was that Haylie tried to pitch inside more. Maybe a good idea generally, but not against the #1 hbp team in softball, and not when the ump is giving you a wide zone. Florida took advantage of it and Michigan did not. My $.02.

But I think they moved the strike zone out when FLA crowded the plate. Sure beats all those HBPs!

Wagner has so much more speed than she did as a freshman. At the time, I wondered how she ever caught Hutch's eye. It was because she was scouting Sweet.
