I've got a healthy dose of anticipation and nervousness flowing through my veins today. My comp division slo-pitch team has a couple of playoff games tonight.
You can play the game two nights a week, every summer for years and years, but you don't lose that tingly feeling come playoff time. When I'm not nervous during the comp division playoffs, I'll know something is terribly wrong.
We've had a rough season. We lost more games than we won, including three in a row, rather uncharacteristic for this team I've played with for over a decade. But tonight, it's a clean slate. We have one simple objective.
Just win, baby.
