I have been on vacation this week. It is a staycation, but that is fine with me, I needed some downtime. I didn’t pick the best week, weather wise. The May 24 long weekend was miserable, rain, rain, more rain and this past Sunday, 2″ – 3″ of snow. Typical Spring weather for Calgary, anyway.
My AAA team was able to play one game last weekend. I was not there as I had to go to Red Deer for work. It was a bad loss so I am told. It was supposed to be a double header but we called the second game before it started as the rain was coming down pretty good.
We played last night and lost in extra innings by a score of 5-4. Too many strikeouts for my guys, looking at way too many good pitches. We really need to stop doing that. Pitching and defence were solid, again. We made a couple of errors but nothing that turned the tide in the game.
The AA’s were completely rained out, or snowed out I guess it was, last weekend. They played on Tuesday and dropped a 1 run ball game. They play tonight, weather permitting, but the forecast isn’t a good one.
The AAA’s play Saturday and Sunday, we are down a few players because of city finals for track and field. We are also down another player to injury – likely a broken toe. Not a good season for injuries, that’s for sure.
The week has been relaxing at least. I was able to sleep in a bit, have a nap here and there and when it hasn’t been raining (or snowing), the dogs and I have made some trips to some different dog parks.
All in all, a good week off. Back to it on Monday…
