Discussion: An Old(er) Post for Southpaw

Hey Nancy, been out of pocket the last few days. Enjoyed all these memories for sure; thanks guys. 1955 was a great year at our house--indoor plumbing and our first T.V.!!

I learned the hard way that you really have to pay attention to what you are doing. Brushed my teeth one morning, reached for the mouthwash and gargled with Old Spice. Burned all the way down, but had great smelling breath all day!

Thanks, STLO; that made me feel better. There are 3 major signs that one is getting older: 1) loss of memory, and I forget the other 2.

My wife and I shopped at Walmart a few days before Christmas. We purchased matching heating pads!

Discussion: Please Forgive My Naivete!

Firestick, we are Strykers, we play in the South, mostly SPA, but we always play Birmingham, SSUSA.

I appreciate all your comments and others are still welcome. I think the thing that puzzles me most is when someone goes to a team where the roster is 19-20 players, knowing that playing time is going to be very limited and it is simply to be on a "winning team". It probably sounds stupid, but at my age, I had much rather play all the time on a competitive, but losing team. One never knows when it will be the last game or the last tourney!

Discussion: Please Forgive My Naivete!

Wow, 2015 is almost here! For us in the South, out first senior tourney is a little over 2 months away. Can't hardly wait! Just wanted to get others' thoughts on something I have mulled over many times over the last 15 years. How important is winning?
I have played amateur sports most of my life; most of it has been baseball and softball. Senior softball especially, the last 15 years. Had my share of winning and losing; league championships, trophys, and disappointments over the years.
I query about winning and others' attitudes because it puzzles me somewhat that while coaching over 60's I run across players who say that is the only thing that matters. And I can sort of understand it when looking at the Major Plus level, and maybe even the Majors; especially if there is sponsorship involved.
Expectations are higher, I get that.
Honesty needed here; my senior teams are usually competitive, but we do not win alot and I guess it is a bit frustrating after one season or one year I lose a player because " we are not winning enough" or "I am all about winning".
For me, it is doing something that I truly enjoy. It is the friendship and fellowship enjoyed with people I care about and want to be around. It is the exercise and weekend getaways. It is the thrill of competition and walking off the field, win or lose, knowing you did your best. Very important also, is sharing the love of Christ and his blessings. Having almost died in June, 2013, it is also being very thankful that I am still here and will get to walk on the field a few more times. Winning is important for me, but it is not the most important or the only thing. Do others have thoughts?

Discussion: This One is for Lefty (Cajun Joe)

Joe, years ago (early 80's) one of my professors at New Orleans Baptist Seminary allowed my class to have a Christmas party. Most brought traditional dishes--turkey, dressing, etc., however one Cajun friend brought alligator. He had trapped it himself! Really tasty. Just wondering if you or anyone has ever had unusual fare for Christmas dinner?
