Dawn of a New Storm

Our new baseball jerseys arrived today.  I just picked them up at Home Run Sports.  I think they look pretty slick. Here's the new and old, side-by-side. Here's the back.  #11 forever. We hadn't updated our jerseys since 2008, so this is an exciting day.

Storm's Surprise Semi-final Sweep

Last week, my slo-pitch team stormed back for a come-from-behind quarter-final playoff victory against Game Over.  That set up a semi-final best-of-three series against the Cardinals, a team that had beat us badly in all three regular season meetings. Again, I know only a handful of you care about my
