As some of you know, I was at my daughter's softball game earlier tonight. I was also online at the Joyfully Reviewed chat with the TEB authors (www.total-e-bound.com) courtesy of hubby's wireless Internet connection card and my trusty lap top. My daughter's team, the Red Sox, were losing 13 - 4 in the second to last inning. So it wasn't hard to do my thing on the Internet during this. All of a sudden, however, the Red Sox began to kick ass. They turned it totally around. They were getting the other team out, 1-2-3. Then they were belting the hell out of the ball and running laps around the field. In the second to last inning, they came up so that it was 13-12. I thought that was the last inning and we'd lost. I almost had a heart attack this game was so intense. But then there was another inning. And we got two outs. And then the bases were loaded. And then a strong batter kept fouling and got 2 strikes. I mean, we were so close to winning and losing. Then the catcher fumbled the ball and and all 3 runners on base came home. Woohoo! Those girls didn't give up. They kept playing and they emerged victorious. I think there's a lesson in this.
