You're reading the blog of a guy who hit a 3-run home run last night to beat a previously undefeated team. We went on to score a few more, and won 11-8. I believe it was the first over-the-fence homerun I have hit in my 25 years of playing baseball and softball. What a thrill, I admit.
Having a stress fracture makes me limp around and favor my foot a lot while playing softball, but it's also made me realize that I don't much use my lower body at all while hitting. Seriously - how else could I have hit a home run with a stress fracture otherwise? It's all my arms. I've got to fix this flaw in my swing sometime.
Tomorrow, I have a 6 a.m. flight to Chicago, where my parents will meet me at 2 p.m. for the White Sox / Tigers game, then drive me back to Michigan, where I'll be spending about a week. I guess that means I'll have to leave at 4 a.m. or something crazy like that to catch the flight, eh? I'm trying to decide whether to drive my car and park in longterm parking, or take a cab. The flight was only 98 bucks, so it would be a bummer to pay another $50-60 for parking or a cab, but 4 a.m. is just too early to ask someone to give me a ride. I come in at midnight, as well, so it's not like that's going to be much easier.
I'm picking up an 11-5 lunch shift today, so there's a chance I could get enough customers to totally offset the cost of longterm parking. But there's also a chance that I'll get one table and make $5.
