I Love My Brother

So I have decided to expand on one topic from last week and that is intramural sports. The past couple of weeks I was involved with a team on main campus which all my sisters and my brother is on. I’ve had fun getting to know the rest of the team and playing softball considering I haven’t played for years. We have had six games this season and we have gone 6-0 for the year. That was very exciding because my brother has never done that before or even won the championship, which we did yesterday. But I would have to say that my highlight of the season came on Monday’s tournament game.

This was the second tournament game we had, but the first we were actually going to play because our first game the other team forfeited. So we were all excided to play and try to get to that championship game. As we all warmed up we were wondering what the other team was going to be like. We stopped warming up for a little bit and decided to watch the end of another game that was going on, on our field. Then we saw them, the other team. They were being led by James Laurinaitis, #33 from the OSU football team. I thought I was going to die. I’m a huge fan of his and he’s standing right there. But then it hit me that I had to play against him. I’m not going to lie, I got a little scared. We all started the game kind of intimated but we soon figured out that we could beat them. Going into the last inning we were tied at eight. We had to bat first and we ended up scoring four runs. But then they had the last bat. We ended up getting three outs before anyone could reach third base. We all were so excited because we just beat his team. By now I was thinking, “Crap, we just beat his team so now I really can’t ask for a picture.” I thought it might be rude or something like that. As we were clapping everyone’s hands he went down the line being really sincere about saying good game. I was walking back to the dugout when I heard my brother yell to get my camera. My brother asked James if it would be ok if my sister and I got a picture with him because we were big fans. He didn’t mind at all. So we got a picture. I couldn’t believe it. I really had a picture with him. But now, I am forever in debt to my brother for it. But I can live with that.

Geez, he really is an Animal, just like his father.

Nice picture.

One note: it's "exciting," not "exciding."

Nice post.
