2012-366 Day 288 – Softball Game 5

I don’t really want to talk about it, but I guess I kind of have to otherwise this post will be extremely boring. The day started off poorly as, for some reason, one of the two teams playing the first game was using a temporary copy of the schedule that was only available two days and never looked at the updated schedules in the last month (well, two of them showed up at the right time). So the first game didn’t get played.

I umpired the second games and, though it was very close, there weren’t any major controversies. I did, however, have to listen to members of the team that showed up for the wrong game complaining behind me. I am uncertain as to why they didn’t think I could hear them and why they thought it was my fault that they were the only team out of the five who haven’t looked at the schedule or standings in the last month, but it was extremely frustrating.

Finally we got to play our game and took an early lead, as is our usual experience. It was a tight game for the first few innings, but then a couple big ones for the other team, including a grand slam, led to us getting throttled 17-8. In all a very disappointing day that was pretty rough on me personally. Even better, the commissioner is out of town for the next two weeks and we play the team that had the scheduling issue today both weeks. I’m not looking forward to this.

Oh, we got our jerseys finally, and we are an amazingly obnoxious shade of yellow (sorry, Gold according to the paperwork). Yup, the day just kept on giving.
