Simple Things, Like Suffering

I feel as though I have a whole new life tonight. Something has happened that I've been waiting for for a long time. As I sit here, I am a new man. But this feeling isn't backed by money, policy, or the greater good. This one is all for me.

DSL is back on.

Now for all of you who don't understand what that is (which I assume you all know, but let me have my fun), DSL stands for 'direct service line.' This is a high speed internet connection that allows you to feel the wind in your hair, rather than feel like you're being passed by a snail with dial-up.

Anywho, baseball practice has been brutal. Normally we do a nice fifteen minute fast paced run (I know you don't feel bad for me Sarah). Today, however, we did white line gorillas. This is where you touch every white line in the gym (5), and come back. It's basically a shuttle run. You sprint to the first line, sprint back, second line, back, third line...well you get it. Anyway, we end up doing 5 of these, at the end my legs were dead. However, we did get to get outside for the first time today. We were initially supposed to kick off the season with a game against Clare today, but the weather wasn't permitting.

I hate to cut this short, but my brain just hasn't been turning normally lately. I promise I will get some better material up soon.

But until then, take care.

we used to do those but we called them gutbusters-i haaaated them and i do sympathize!

running is much more fun at your own pace, sprinting to gym lines is not my idea of a good run.

The only running I do these days is to the refrigerator during commercials.

Oh man... I hate anything that resembles a suicide. Thinking back to practices I don't know how I ever survived them. I'm so out of shape now. I wish I could go back and play a high school sport just for the brutal killing the coach gives... I won't do it on my own.
