The Softball Diary

Today was the first game for the official SXSW softball team, Pretty Unicorns From Space. Sort of.

With a game scheduled to begin at 7:15, we were a little concerned when torrential rain started to pour at 7:05. The rain didn’t stop until 7:30… and in true Texas weather fashion, that was it. It was clear skies, but, too late. The officials had already called off the game. So our first game was cancelled. Undeterred, we stayed and found a pick-up scrimmage with another team left out in the mud. It’s hard to say if we won or not, because a few of our players (including yours truly) went over to the other side to even things out.

We may be able to make up this game next Tuesday. But, for now, at least we’re undefeated.
