Baseball is frustrating this year because of the weather. Despite practicing every day since March 1, we have been on our infield *once*. The field does not take water at all; we're in desperate need of diamond mix and dirt; the city doesn't fix up the fields at all. It's terrible.
What is probably more terrible, though, is that the Stadium Place YMCA has a new baseball field behind it (in the old Memorial Stadium location) that Cal Ripken donated. I thought it was going to be a baseball field for the community, but, so far, I've only seen lacrosse on it. I decided to call them and see if our team could ever use it if our field was unplayable... it's $300/hour, with 2 hours minimum! No wonder I've only seen county lacrosse teams on the field so far! What a disgrace.
I've never been so busy.
I hid my twitter feed mostly because I've gotten myself into some sticky situations lately with twitter. Not from anything I've posted, but from searching my own (unusual) last name. I see the kids tweeting about me or my colleagues all the time, most of the time wildly inappropriate things. I can't handle it any longer, and my response to students, at the end of our discussion, is "hide your feed." It seemed appropriate for me, too. You can always follow me if you want to. I'm still tweeting a lot.
