Who Helped Who?

June 10, 2013
By

I have two friends who went to Ball Sate at the same time. I will not use their names since I don’t want to embarrass them. Friend A said he did all the work to get Friend B through school. Of course, Friend B said the same about his buddy. As I said, I...

June 3, 2013
By

I noticed more and more communities are starting co-ed softball leagues. I like this idea. With softball entrenched in the high school sport’s scene, more women feel proficient in it and are quite capable of handling themselves in this environment.
