Hooray - I've figured out how to post from Flickr! This is VERY important to me. doesn't matter to me in the slightest.

Broken Mit

Does anyone know where I can get my beautiful, old, worn-in mit fixed? The leather tie things are breaking and I don't think the webbing can stop a ball thrown by anyone older than 3.

First Practice!

The long wait is over!

We had our first practice of the 2007 Oxford Blues softball season last night, at the traditional "spring training field" in Central Park at 97th Street(Okay, so it's more of a random dirt patch on the east side, but who's counting?). A good mix of new and old players were on hand to take batting practice, fielding, and witness the unveiling of Jared Wright's God-given talent at first base. And afterwards we retired to Blondie's on the East Side to discuss our favorite Al Pacino movie roles, another long-standing Blues tradition.

Let the 2007 season begin! We're winning the whole thing!

Softball Haiku

My glove is oiled
My cleats and jersey are clean
When is the first game?

Just thought I'd mix it up a little. There's not much to write about in March.

This is the first ever Blues blog so I'm not sure where it will take us but I'm hoping we'll be able to post game recaps, news, and whatever else you want. Please feel free to add or comment on anything. For now, let's hope the snow melts and maybe we can head to the park next week.
