Today is the first truly hot day of the year. 85 degrees according to my car a few minutes ago. The heat brings to mind the many days of watching high school fast-pitch softball. Then, because my mind works in weird ways, I am suddenly angered by the fact that fast-pitch is no longer an Olympic sport. Curling is an Olympic sport. Meaning that sweeping is more of a sport than fast-pitch. What kind of message does that send to the thousands of young women who play fast-pitch? I mean, really?
