I umpired tonight, big surprise, I do a lot of that this time of year. I was at New Brighton field, about 40 minutes away from my house. Only one slowdown heading there at 545, rush hour had pretty much wrapped up.
Good game tonight, ended up being an 8-4 ball game in just over 2 hours.
I got hit once, just above the wrist, hurt like hell. I don’t bruise easily, but I think this one will. There are stitch marks from where the ball smacked me. The arms are pretty much the only exposed body part and normally I keep them out of the way. Not tonight. I’ll survive.
Good drive home, uneventful. I love coming home to three wagging dogs, Hera also gives little crying sounds, it’s nice to be loved.
I’m supposed to umpire tomorrow evening but the forecast is calling for all day rain, so I’m thinking it’ll be off. A nice quiet evening with the dogs will be good.
