We kicked, we balled…we got 3rd place

Our summer kickball season is over.  Sniff, sniff.  Our team was actually pretty good.  We only had one loss in the regular season, and we easily made it past the first round of playoffs. 

The second round is where things got a bit exciting.  We were down 7 to 2 early in the game.  We were making lots of silly mistakes.  The sun was beating down on us.  But we kicked harder, ran faster, and pegged our opponents with the ball.  We ended up winning 8 to 7 – and on we moved to the next game (which was immediately following this first game).

That’s where things got ugly, quickly.  We were missing easy catches.  We were overthrowing balls.  We were kicking like…crap.  And the sun continued to beat down on us.  We ended up losing…very badly.  But as our “coach” liked to say, “If you had fun, you won!!”
