    The best advise would be to eat before you go. You are allowed to bring some food in with you as well.

    Rec League softball

    "Should be". Just an extra layer of precaution I guess. Similar to the extra orange base at first for the runners.

    Rec League softball

    I don't understand the people that take rec league softball that seriously that they get involved in a fight over it. I'm there to have fun and try not to get hurt. We had a guy on our team a couple of years ago that had a temper that went from 0 to 60 in about 1.5 seconds. He got into more than a few arguments with players on other teams. One thing our league has done to try to help avoid collisions at home plate (which has led to brawls in the past) is that they installed a completely separate home plate for runners. It's slightly behind and to the left of the catcher. So when you come around 3rd base, you have to veer to the right and touch that plate to score a run. All plays at home are force plays no matter what. There is also a line marked on the 3rd base line that once you cross it, you aren't allowed to go back to third base. So once you pass that line, if the ball gets to home plate before you and the fielder touches the "real" plate, you are out. It's worked out well so far.

    2017 Bowling thread

    Joined a new adult/youth bowling league for the summer at a house that I basically grew up in. It was (still is) 2 blocks from my parent's house and I spent my entire youth bowling career there on Saturday mornings. It started a few weeks ago but we didn't bowl on Memorial Day and we were on vacation last week. So I was worried I'd be a little off after having so much time off. One of my best friends that lived right across the street from me and bowled with me in the same Saturday morning league is also in the league with his daughter. We bowled against each other last night and had a bit of an old school match-up. I shot 730 and he shot 707. We decided that we should bowl against each other more often. 😄

    Rec League softball

    We finished the first half of our season at 5 - 2. The two losses were pretty close. A couple of dumb mistakes lost the games for us. We seem to have a better team this year than in years past. Before most of the girls on the team were simply wives/girlfriends/co-workers of the other players and were mostly there to fill a spot. Now we have girls that actually played softball in HS and/or college and know what they are doing. Second half starts this Thursday.

    Gun Violence in America

    They always bring stories up like this because they think people want no guns for anyone, anywhere, ever. There may be a small percentage that want that but it's completely unrealistic and not what most people are asking for.

    Gun Violence in America

    Sandy hook didn't change anything. The Auroa movie theater shooting didn't change anything. The Vegas shooting didn't change much besides maybe bump stocks. The Florida shooting (which I believe is the one you are referring to) didn't change anything... At this point, I'm not sure what it would take for things to change.

    Depends on what you consider the "last" one. There was one yesterday.

    **President Trump 2018 Thread**

    But all my Trump supporting friends on Facebook said that Obama is worth more now than when he became president and that Trump has donated all his paychecks. How can this be?

    From the Rozner article: Doesn't matter if you believe in it or not. It does work. Sure, it's not guaranteed to work, but it's better than what we were doing before.
