This past weekend, Stumpy and his team, the Texans, opened their Senior Softball season with a tournament in Irving, Texas, within sight of the “old” Cowboy’s Stadium. The Texans flopped in this season’s opener and the weather sure flopped too!
Our first game was at 9:00 AM on Saturday and we were greeted with 37 degree temperatures and 35-45 MPH winds that generated a 27 degree, wind chill. It was COLD and uncomfortable, but we all “soldiered” on. Sunday was still cold, but, at least, the wind wasn’t blowing.
The Texans ended up with a 3 win and 2 loss record. Last year we won this one and were 5-0. We were generous and made way too many errors and the crowning blow was our 17-16 loss to the Oklahoma Blast. The last time we played them was in September 2008 and we prevailed 16-1, winning the Softball Players Association National Championship.
We have 4 weeks to get ready for our next tournament that will be held in Baytown on April 24, 25 and 26.
We stunk in Irving and maybe, we can clean up our act by Baytown.
