I attended Greg’s softball game tonight. He and his co-workers play in a league, and their season is off to a sour start. After watching the game tonight, I think I know why. They do play with a lot of heart, but sometimes the coordination is lacking. They were down by several runs toward the end of the game, when they started to make a comeback. One of their players charged from third base toward home. He looked tenacious — absolutely set on crossing home base. And he made it. But he tripped on home plate as he ran across. That pretty well sums up the course of the entire game.
