The Glamorous Life

April 24, 2015

We baseball parents, I tell ya. it’s a glamorous life. We know how to have fun on a Friday night.

Tonight was the third game (of four) this week. If I ruled the world, we’d have games daily, with a few double headers thrown in for good measure. And I’m not even weird. There is at least one, and maybe many more, baseball parents who feel the same way.

Anyway, this is where we dine:


I have fallen in love with the Sofrita bowl at Chipotle–spicy tofu served over a double order of brown rice, a few black beans, grilled veggies, corn, chunky salsa, and a sprinkle of cheese. Oh my lord in heaven (if I had one)!  It is fantastic.

And this is what we gaze lovingly upon, though pretend to ignore:


Tonight’s subset: Solly, Ray (hidden), Daniel, Peter and Gabe. It was a very busy restaurant on a Saturday in Elk Grove. To their right was a group of guys from the Cosumnes River baseball team, and to their left, a group from some Pleasant Grove baseball team.

And for the record, Davis won tonight (6-5), as they should have, against Monterey Trail–a team that was not expected to give them any trouble, but did. Peter started and pitched well for his four innings, which was a good thing since his last outing was not one for the record books. Yay him/them.

And lucky us, there is a game tomorrow, an off-the-record game against Maria Carillo, a team they lost to at this year’s big fancy Boras Tournament.

That is, if it doesn’t rain too much tonight (100% chance at midnight! Great for California.).

These are clouds, kids:
