To our credit, after the first 3 innings, we won 3-1. Problem is, we let up 16 in the first three and lost 17-3. Our starter didn't have his good stuff and they made him pay - they hammered mistakes and basically anything else we threw up there. I made a trip out to the mound after three batters - and I'm sure I was on TV - so there it was, that's me for you followers out there. Tomorrow I will vow to make a few more trips and get myself seen on national TV again.
I am not going to sit here and make excuses about this and that - they dominated every aspect of the game and we and are a better team than us. And they should be - everything is in place to succeed at the highest level.
Tomorrow is a new day, a noon time game. And we did win one thing today - the coin flip - so we'll be the home team against Jacksonville tomorrow. Again, it's on ESPNU.
There's really nothing you can do about a game like this - 4-3 or 17-3 - a loss is a loss is a loss.
After tomorrow, I will create a timeline of events on both WRT and DDP - a little documentation of our trip by means of photograph.
As for now, family time. I hope this kid sleeps a little tonight. Him and Lindsay both had a long day - first flight for the little guy and Lindsay hates flying.
