48 hours: subtitled rode hard and put away wet

Starting last Friday at 4:30 p.m., Jack had a wild two days. He played in five baseball games and two flag football play-off games and went to a school dance!

Jack played in the first round of the PAL flag football play-offs on Friday night. The Eagles squeezed out a 14 to 12 victory over Sacramento Country Day.

After the play-off game, we raced home and got him cleaned up. Jack went to the 7th and 8th grade dance held by the Catholic schools at the St. Anthony's parish in the pocket area. This was his first dance! Sharon and I had dinner at Scott's on the River while Jack was at the dance. By the time, we picked him up from the dance and got him down for the night it was almost 11 p.m.

I got him up at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning to play baseball with the Outlaws. We were at Mather before 7 a.m. The Outlaws lost a close game to the Demons by the score of 4 to 3 and then beat Oorah Baseball by the score of 6 to 2.

By Saturday afternoon, Jack was beat. He crashed and we watched game three of the World Series.

I got him up again at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning for baseball. The Outlaws played an 8 a.m. elimination game against the Folsom Flames; they won by the score of 5 to 1.

They advanced to the semi-final game against the Sluggers; they won by the score of 4 to 3. Jack left this game in the fifth inning to go to Jesuit High School and play in the semi-final game of the PAL flag tournament play-offs. The Eagles got blown out in the second half and lost by the score of 38 to 12.

We then headed back to Mather for the championship game of the baseball tournament. Although Jack had a home run, the Outlaws lost by the score of 10 to 2 and placed second in the tournament. By the time we got home it was almost 7:30 p.m.

Jack was done... [urban dictionary: rode hard and put away wet]
