Who's driving? I'm considering making the trip, but I'm NOT eating at Burger King. :nono Fishin' Pig for me, if I go.

My sources say that said professional bus/van driver is not a big fan of Burger King (thank God).

So you're up for trying a restaurant other than Burger King if the softball conversation is good?

I have now seen 3 different game times: 4:00, 6:00 and 6:30. I will attempt to check with ALL my sources tomorrow to verify actual game time.

Pitcher's duel! We'll miss DiMartino and Cassady.

TF and I got Ballcoach to eat somewhere other than Burger King! Fishin' Pig had a 30 minute wait, but the half price catfish basket on Thursdays was well worth it.

When Cider got into the van, I noticed he had a sheet of paper in his hand. I thought he had printed off the LU softball roster, but it was a Fish n Pig Menu.

I knew Ballcoach and TF would coach me up on LU softball; my job was to coach you and TF up on the half price catfish basket for only $5.75. TF passed, and you failed for paying twice as much for only a catfish sandwich & fries.

If Purple would have known that it was also live Jazz night at Fishin' Pig, he might have joined us.

OR I could have worked at my job that helps pay my mortgage etc. Tough choice but I opted for being a responsible adult

Time management doesn't mean normal people can cut away from work multiple times a year. If I was self employed it may be easier. Military life doesn't quite work that way and there are many other jobs that don't either.

But trolls like to troll.

To get a heads up on what we'll have for 2020 season. After watching fall ball, I predict our hitting and defense will be better than in past seasons. I like our freshmen class.

Pitching will be down though. And pitching is close to everything in softball. Man, I still cringe at what a missed opportunity last season was.

We didn't hit last season. There were 3 spots in lineup that produced very little offense, in addition to not getting good RBI production from "RBI spots" in lineup.
