That Wife Who Yells at the Umpire

Let’s just be honest (and prejudice) for a moment and admit that firefighters are slightly awesome. Don’t get me wrong, they are also predominantly egotistical, but the fact that they get to play with fire, hoses that shoot huge amounts of water, and use the jaws of life gives them some leeway on that since it is so cool. It also seems to be a profession that people who are too hyperactive for their own good tend to gravitate towards. That just makes sporting events with them even more fun!


Coal participated in the Cops vs. Firefighters softball game the other night and it was awesome!


Not only did he completely rock it for never really playing before, I was so proud to cheer him on (very loudly) from the stands.



I actually ended up moving down towards the dugout as I was yelling too energetically for others to stand me. By the way, thanks mom and dad for the years of pushing me into softball so I could explain to others what was happening. Also, I am 99% sure that I could totally kick Coal’s butt in softball. It’s extremely assuring to be better than him at certain sporting events. Softball and Volleyball…check!!! Badmitten? Probably-I did take a course of it in college after all and aced it.
