What The Allmendinger Is Going On Here?

Yes, there is NASCAR news to get to, but legion baseball is first on the agenda.

Rutherford County Post 423 ended a the season in the first round of the legion playoffs this past week.

They lost after game four in a best of five series. In game one, Post 423 fell 10-3 on the road, then came back home and played maybe the best ball they had all season with a 5-3 victory. In game three, it was a cat and mouse type game, but Mint Hill prevailed 13-12 and the series ended the next night with a 13-9 loss. Post 423 (7-11), never really had a chance to gel this season after being forced to take a break by a new implemented rule of American Legion at the start of the campaign and inconsistent/young pitching took its toll as well.

How’s your vacation?

Why is it that to take a week of vacation, you have to do two weeks of work before you leave and two weeks of work when you return?  You’re only gone a week! Does the work multiply  while you’re gone?

Outdoor Truths
I’ve got a few more bass fishing trip in store before I turn into a deer hunter. My friends love hunting season because they now have the lake to themselves. They’ll enjoy some of the best fishing of the year when the weather turns a little colder. As for me, I’ll trade a bent rod for a bent bow. But it’s not always been this way.
