SB Ride or Die 2016 ... Be Careful What You SB Wish For

Breaking News: The Softball Insider hasn't written a blog in 62 days. 

Is it a sabbatical or the end? Was I just taking a break?  

It has been quiet:
  • No rumors
  • No speculation.
  • No phone calls.
  • No emails
  • No comments
  • No anger.

The only thing it has been is Softball Apathetic, which is probably one the worst things to be. Winter will do that.

But spring is almost here and at this point I have to ask "Do the 822 posts and 9 years I've put into mean anything?

 Since I started this blog I've been through a lot of shit like:

  • Cut/Released/Unwanted by teams and friends
  • Quit teams
  • Hypocrite
  • A Winner - Multiple League Champion
  • A Loser, Choker, Failure
  • Married
  • Manager
  • A Father
  • Softball Consultant
  • Batting Title
  • Unemployed
  • Lost and Gained and Lost 30 pounds
  • Injured
  • Last Place to 1st Place to Last
  • Poor Then Rich Then Poor Then Rich Then ??
  • SB Analyst
  • RMBS Analyst
  • Tax Man
  • Distressed Asset Analyst
  • Coach
  • Commissioner
  • Outfielder
  • Infielder
  • Catcher
  • Forfeit Avoider
  • Softball Whore
  • Lost a Father
  • Cancer Philanthropist
  • Father to Be again

It's been one hell of a ride, hasn't it? After all it is more than just a me anyway. 

All these years later, I feel like my SB heart and back has been broken, but somehow I get up and SB walk gain.

1st blog of 2016 and this is real talk.  

What's next? 

No. Not Yet.  

I still feel there is more ..yes I'm crazy. It ill only be harder. 
      • Another year older.
      • Competition. 
      • Family commitments.
      • Money
      • The SB game in general is in danger (more on that at another time)

But still the softball heart wants what the softball heart wants and I want softball. 

This is it probably for me in a hardcore capacity. "2016 Ride or Die" is my corny but honest motto. 

My instincts tell me this could and will be a big season if the softball gods allow. But even I know I have to be careful what I softball wish for.. there will be consequences... more on that in future blogs. Yes there will be future blogs.

See you all on the field soon... where we belong.
