I drove to Albia on Sunday to watch Elainie play softball in the Little League State Tournament. I was honestly expecting to only watch one game because they were playing Grand View. I can never recall a Boone team beating a Grand View team. But it happened. Boone beat Grand View 9-6. They played Monroe County in the title game and fell 7-1.
Here are some pictures from the day.
Not going to make a play on Elainie’s monster smash!
Great Raspberry Shakes!
There is one other thing. It is traditional to paint your vehicle to support your kid’s team when they go to tournaments. I understand that. However, there needs to be some common sense exercised.
For example. Say you have a daughter. Say that daughter is a pitcher. Say that daughter strikes people out. A reasonable thing to do would be to paint a couple “K”s on your van because the “K” is the symbol for strikeout in score keeping.
Now think about it. Just off the top of your head, what amount of “K”s would you not want to paint on your van.
Has it come to you yet?
Figured it out yet?
Have that answer yet?
Yeah, that seems like a bad idea to me. Even if there are 3 outs in an inning.
For the record, this van was from Wisconsin and not Boone.
