Well, poop.

OK, so the long and short of it, mostly short of it, was that we lost on Sunday night. There were some bright spots, namely the first appearance of the newest "second generation" Crackmonkey, Tyler Cappa, and the wonderful rice krispie treats that he and Macy made for us. Kidding aside, we were certainly happy to have the whole Cappa family in attendance so quickly after the birth, and it's especially nice to know that everything went smoothly for them.

As for the game, there were some errors, and the hitting wasn't up to our normal level, and unfortunately, it came in a game against the second place team. They've moved in to first place with tiebreakers, so we've got some work to do to get back on top. It starts in two weeks.

Which brings up a question that Glenn and I debated before going out for a drink on Sunday. If you have to lose, how would you rather lose? In a game where you can't seem to do much right, string together hits, have some errors, like we did on Sunday. Or a game where you play your best, and just get beat by 1. Glenn contends he'd rather lose like we did on Sunday, I'm much happier if the team plays well and up to the standards, and if you're bested, so be it.

What do you think?

The Fourth is coming up this week, and hopefully nobody shoots their eye out. We've also got Alex's 30th coming up, and the Crackmonkey Madison Bar Crawl.

Also, a special shoutout to Lil' D, who is celebrating her 18th birthday this Friday night. Don't do anything stupid, Lil' D! :)

Personally, I'd rather lose a game where the team played their hardest. While the loss may be harder to take, at least we would know we played our best. IDK, that may just be the coach in me.

oops...that was Jill...don't know how I'm logged in as Tony.

Well, this is actually Tony. I think it was good to get all the bad mojo out in one game. To answer the question, I would rather play well and get beat. That way we know what we need to work on.

See I would rather just get beat.

Things falling apart is one thing. Coming up short is just frustrating, leads to finger pointing, because invariably in a one point loss it comes down to one person making an error or a mistake.

So I prefer the collective fail. :-)
