A Real Nail Biter!

If you were hoping for that quiche recipe I referred to in my last post I'm afraid you're gonna have to wait.  I have to do a little bragging about my Li'l Slugger.  Jabberjaw had an amazing baseball game!  If you've read my previous post about Little League you'll know that I don't say that lightly!

Jabberjaw's team is in first place in the playoffs right now, so we were on the edge of our seats during this last game, hoping they would keep up their winning streak.  It was 'neck and neck' the whole way through the game, with some great action.  There was a lot of cheering, clapping, and yelling on both sides.  Even I was getting into it!  Thankfully my voice has returned so I could scream along with everyone else!

Bottom of the game, end of the 6th inning, we are tied 5-5.  The coaches and umpire consult and decide to go into a 7th inning for a tie-breaker.  Other team is up to bat first and our guys never let 'em get a run.  We're up to bat and get a runner on to 2nd.  Jabberjaw is up to bat next... I'm SOOooo nervous!  If I were a nail biter, I would have bitten off all ten!

Jabberjaw hits a sacrifice hit toward first and is out before he reaches the base, but he gets the runner to 3rd.  All we need is one run and we win.  The next batter knocks it into the outfield and brings the runner into home!  We win!!!

Wow!!  What a game!!
