After posting a record number of comments on my last posting, the Insider went on a well deserved vacation where I got a chance to recover, regroup, and refocus. On my sabbatical I went fishing
one day to relax and ponder the meaning of life on the open sea
while we didn't catch much
it was nice to get away for a few days. While everyone knows that I am married to the game, for better or worse, I must admit it was nice to do another activity besides softball.
This diversification got me to thinking, at this stage of my life what other sport options are out there for me :
Weighing the Pros and Cons of Sports besides Softball available to me
Pro - Serenity - ahhhh
Con: Serenity - no goons, no controversy, no drama. Need that adrenaline fix
Pro - Gives you competitive fix.
Con - I've been a sick degenerate once already no reason to go back as I can't afford it.
8. White Water Rafting
Pro - Fun, family time , and exercise
Con - Except for Astrid, I have too many up and down rocky relationships in my life right. Don't need another
Pro and Con - covered in the classic Ghost Writer Blog years ago
7. GolfPro: Swing a bat, Swing a club. Plus you can do it alone and its an excuse to start drinking again
Con: No trash talk. No moving parts. Very frustrating game but come on golf? Really? better off retiring.
6. BowlingPro: You throw a ball.
Con: Bowling. Come one I ain't Homer Simpson or Fred Flinstone.
5. SwimmingPro : Great Workout. Stroke the ball, use the swim stroke. Nice match.
Con: Same as Jogging. Too solo of a thing and more importantly how much can you blog about the butterfly stroke.
4. VolleyballPro: Probably the most athletic and sexy women athletes play beach volley ball
Con: Too fucking hard. Serious athletes who are not fucking around.
Pro: Very hicksih, mad trash talk,psychological warfare, and strategy
Negative: No exercise and I can't count from 0 to 6 anyway
2. Competitive Eating
Con: Gross Fat Boy Heaven
and the #1 Sports alternative besides Softball
1. None - Like I aid I'm married to the game for better or worse.
