Hey James. Good to hear from you again.

I know as a host you always want to give your team the best shot at winning the tournament but to be so blatant in changing a schedule after you have released it is pretty low.

On one hand it makes me laugh but on the other I makes me a bit mad.
That stinks. Home cookin run amok. That crap goes on everywhere and then they whine about it. Why do athletes cheat? Because the so called morally righteous people taught them how to cheat.

You play tennis? I played on HS team first two years until I had to get a job. Then I found beer. Then it was all over. I would like to lose enough weight to play reasonably competitive again.

We usually see a lot of changes in our tournaments leading up to the start to try to balance out all the groups to keep it competitive. It's usually a bunch of changes and not really the home team looking to win. I guess you'll just have to beat the team they added to your schedule too/

We beat the team they added in our first game of the season, although the game did go to overtime. The way I look at it they changed the schedule to put the top two teams in the same pool so they will have a better chance of winning their pool. They must feel that they can beat one of us because chances are they will have to play one of us in the cross-over.

Dis Dad meets happen everywhere - at WDW, football stadiums, museums, and Walmart parking lots?



Shawn(Wasnotafan) happened to be in Owensboro and escaped a little bit earlier than expected. But, we managed a picture outside in the cold. We chatted a bit, although since it was cold and he had to be in Louisville, we didn't visit long. Shawn seems like a great guy, we talked about work, children, trips, and he even brought me a travel mug. It was nice to put a face with the name, and I hope I can chat with you more in the future. Have a safe trip home.

Slow-pitch softball and beer goes really well together.

You couldn't take him inside the Walmart where you could chat in the warmth?

Maybe he was afraid I was a serial killer. He still had a two hour drive to the next destination and I had to get home to meet my dds from the school bus.

If they were moving the teams to make it more competative that would be one thing. This looks like a major case of home cooking.

It does look like home cooking. Back in my youth tennis days, a lot of summer programs that hosted tourneys would place the top ranked players at the bottom of the bracket to beat the crap out of each other in the early rounds. Meanwhile their kids would play lower raked kids and hopefully those kids advanced to get whoever survived the bracket of death. After a few seasons of that I just had enough and let my membership lapse.

I've been playing since middle school. I love it and its a great way to get in shape. I've also coached boys and girls for a number of seasons at the high school level.
