The big match-up! Double-header, Walton, our little tiny town, vs Spencer, the big town in the county.
We’re using the word big loosely here.
Walton has a long history of underdogdom. Everyone makes the team here. We love that! Okay, that’s because in this tiny school that runs from pre-k to 8th, there are only about 350 students. All of them live in the country, and many of them live on farms. It’s not easy to round up enough girls to make a team. Our farm girls have a good attitude about losing because they have a lot of experience, but they like to win. Especially when they’re playing those town girls from Spencer, their arch-rivals.
We know we’re better.
We can do the splits when we’re pitching.
We have cool sunglasses.
We can hit the ball sometimes.
And slide into the base.
And do the wiggle dance.
We have a pink catcher’s mask, too.
Doesn’t my girl look cute all geared up?
We can catch…..
And still end up on the wrong side of the scoreboard from those town girls.
….I’m gonna have to tell Santa to put you on his naughty list again.”
I’m just kidding. Mr. Brohard is a teacher at the school and he coaches just about every sport. He likes to spend his every waking moment with children. I’m going to leave him my children and a couple other people’s children in my will.
Mr. Brohard reads my blog, so everybody say hi to Mr. Brohard!
I bet he’s wondering why I never bring him a doughnut.
Darn town girls.
We shall overcome!
You know, when we get to the county high school and play on their team.
