Graphtech Guapos

I can sum up this weekend in two words: Ass Beat Yesterday, I was playing at the SMASH Co-Ed Softball League tournament representing team Graphtech Guapos. Thanks Cuzin and Jay for having me! We arrived at Twin Creeks in Sunnyvale close to 1:00pm. The vibe was fantastic. I felt like I was in a cheer leading competition like the movie Bring It On. Loud music, huge crowd, players observing their opponents, and numerous uniforms. I was very uncomfortable in the beginning until I saw tons of familiar faces. Let's just say, it was an El Camino High School Reunion all over again! I never knew how much people were into softball. Incredible, I say. Soon enough I was no longer in nervous anxiety mode. I was super pumped! I have to say our uniforms definitely stood out! We wore black t-shirts with a tuxedo on the front. Although it was not uni-sex friendly, the males looked well dressed with their red bow ties! Pop 'Em boys, pop 'em. It was a fun but disappointing day. We lost BOTH games. Unexpectedly I had a blast! Lea, Crystal and I (only chicks of the team) made the most of our day. All of us hit the ball at least once - YES! That's awesome coming from someone that's NEVER played a softball game before. As far as defense, we pretty much left it to the dudes. I played Left Center the entire time. Unfortunately, I didn't do anything impressive. Let's not forget about my lame hot potato hand off. Yes. I said hand off NOT throw to the Short Stop. It was hilarious! I think McNabb's passing techniques rubbed off on me. LOL! Wrong sport, Share! Oh Well. It was a good laugh for all except for our competitive team members. All in all, I had a great time. It was exhausting but it was worth the experience. Our MVP for the day was Edwin. Whoo hoo! Good job! He scored the one and only point for the day! Luckily ALL competing teams were automatically in the Play Offs (today). I woke up this morning with extreme soreness. I drove back to Twin Creeks to face off yet another team. Score 15-1. We actually scored 2 in our hearts but due the rules of the game our first point did not qualify as a home run. Boo to the Umpire! It was a quick game. We tried to be optimistic but no luck. I was glad it was finally over. I just wanted to go home and rest. Our team scored "A" for effort and team spirit. Thanks Team for having me! Go Graphtech Guapos!!
