charlie_brownFor those of you keeping up with the fortunes of Robbo’s Tribe, here is a litany of this week’s woes:

–  We dropped another game just before Memorial Day weekend and now stand at 3-5-1.

– We’ve missed the last two practices because of the holiday and because of rain this week.

– One of my better players broke her wrist (at home) and is out for the rest of the season.

– Tomorrow morning we meet the scariest team in the division (the one whose coach makes his players cry on the field).  We face them with only nine players at best, which means we won’t even be able to cover the entire outfield.

– We also face them without Yours Truly, as I will be out of town and not back until Sunday afternoon.

But you know what?  I’m not stressing about any of it. Made up the fielding schedule, passed the equipment bag to one of my coaching staff, and plan to enjoy myself on my jaunt.  It’s Shrine Mont weekend at RFEC and we’re headed out to the Shenandoah Valley to do what Palies do best – drink and gossip.  (Religion? Gawd!)

I feel that this is progress.
