AM: Gully long run with my cross country boys. I had a really impressive group this morning who managed the gully pretty well on the first official day of practice. Very warm and windy - usually we can count on cool mornings, but not today.

Andy's baseball game today is at 5 pm at the Sunnyside fields (just east of Guardsman up from the East High track on Sunnyside).

I predict Andy scores the game winning run in a 31-30 barnburner.

The thing is, the team they are playing is a lot better than Andy's team. The main reason is that they have about ten 2nd graders and one 1st grader on their team, Andy's team is the exact opposite. The main reason the game was so close on Friday night (11-10) is that their coach is a real stressed and was putting a lot of pressure on his kids whereas Andy's team was just having fun.

So this team really should crush Andy's team. But you never know.

We need to come watch a game. Natalie's playing her third year now too.
