Epic Softball game tonight for Werther's Originals. It was a back and forth type of deal early, then we built an 8 run lead late. The bad guys managed to score 9 in their last at bat, but we were the home team, and had the hammer. (Having "the Hammer" is actually a term they use in the sport of Curling, but it fits)

We scored the tying run and winning run on the same play, from a shot that first hit off the pitchers glove on its way to Center Field. The Tying run was on 3rd and scored easily, the winning run started on second, and ended up in a collision at home plate with their catcher dropping the ball. Awesome walk off double right there.
Just Hack league Softball, but a win is a win is a win. We should go into the playoffs as the 2 seed and bring home the hardware.
At the bar afterwards there was lots of talk about if we were going to be the one, two or three seed in the playoffs. We figured as best we could tell that we would be the two, but really it doesn't matter.
In the end its like We are just a bunch of Migrant Farm Workers. It doesn't matter what seed we end up with, because all we are going to do is get up at the proverbial break of dawn and start picking that fruit off the trees, because Fruit needs picking, and it doesn't matter if its raining, if your sick, or even hungover. Fruit has to be picked, Softball games have to be won.
