It's been a minute

It's been a while since I had put a blog entry on this site. Man, more than a week. I need to get used to this "journal type" entry thing. I never kept one when I was growing up. Well anyways things are good. My last entry I spoke on my softball team right before the game.

We actually won the game last Tuesday and also the one this week. We actually have a two game winning streak and are in fourth place. In two weeks we went from last to fourth. So what if there are only 6 teams in my division, it still means alot to me. The biggest reason is that we actually started to play defense. Everyone is comfortable in their positions and has confidence on what plays to make. Out last game is next week against the third place team. With that win we clinch the the fourth seed in the playoffs that begin the week after. With a loss we clinch the fifth seed since we will not win the tie-breaker with the team behind us. It doesn't reall matter, since what ever team we match up with in the other division for the playoffs, no matter the seed, we can beat. And we almost did during the regular reason with our previous shaky defence. As for me, I finally broke out my slump. I went 4-4 yesterday with two runs scored and I think 1 RBI. I still haven't had a HR in 3 games, but i still own the league lead with 12 HR's. This last game, I just stopped thinking about the HR's and had little dinky base hits. I think I was letting the HR lead thing get to my head a little. ;-)

I should be making a few more additions to the site in the next couple of days. I have some new photos and also some new favorite links

Go White Sox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another Tuesday......Another Softball Game "L"?

Well today is Tuesday and if the weather holds up we will have another softball game. We are something like 2-11, but I think today we play a team with the very same record. We are the two worst teams in the league, so the winner of this game avoids getting the worst record in the entire league. So I guess you can call this game "The Toilet Bowl" or the "Worst Series", I don't know. So to prepare for the game I went to the batting cage on Sunday and hit 150 balls in the cage. I was mad at myself for having such a horrible game last week. I went 0 for 2 and we lost the game on a 15-0 mercy rule in the fifth inning. I guess we didn't play that bad as a team, but I did horrible at the plate. A pop-fly and a weak grounder to the shortstop. They had a pretty good defense, which is why they are in first place and also undefeated. Even still that was the worst and most lopsided game that I had ever been involved with in my 2-year softball career. ;-)

Maybe I'll try to post some the stats for the season on the website one day. We only have a couple of games left before the playoffs, which includes every team and is also double elimination.

New Pics

Well I got around to adding a few more pic albums to the site. Below a few news clips I found interesting:

Wild Milwaukee::Guess I won't be making that hour trip up to Milwaukee any time soon.

Linux Lies::SCO unveils basis of lawsuits aimed at Red Hat and IBM over linux OS.

It's been a long time........

Well it's been a minute since I had an entry on my weblog, so I was sittin' at work thinking what the heck. I might as well put something down.

Not alot has been going on since my last entry. I have a few more photos to add to the site from a couple of parties that I have been too in the past couple of weeks. I need to mess around with the formatting of a few photos to add of myself and a few old digitized photos that I have from school (Columbia and Morehouse).

I guess one thing that is missing from the site is "ME". Since the domain is JohnWesleyThomas, I guess it would make sense to add something about myself. I might add a few photos along with my resume or something. It kind of bothers me a little bit to put stuff on the site about me because I don't want to come off being a vain person, but I guess it's a must that I put up a few things. Otherwise the site lacks personality or maybe it should be called www.johnwesleythomas' :-) All well, so I guess it's decided. More stuff about me to follow.

I have a softball game today, so hopefully we won't get a usual outcome of a big "L". We probably will though since we are playing the first place team in our division. We play hard every game and everyone on the team trys their best, but we just cannot get a victory to save out lives. We are 2-10 now and one of those victories was a forfeit. It's a sad situation, but at least we are laughing and having fun right. Or is that just what losers say. I don't know. I definitely need to add a few photos of the team on the site, as well as some of our stats. I have something like 14 home runs, which is like twice what I had the whole season last year. I don't know what's going on, maybe I'm letting my losing frustrations out on the ball. If so, I'll try to continue it today. Later.
