Death, taxes and …

Some things just never change — like the Farley Hawks getting assigned to the strong side of tournament brackets. That’s called respect.

All wet

The swimming pool has become a big part of the Ankeny Kramers’ summers. We go just about every week, and we have a blast.

Today it was Cascade Falls in Ankeny. Gramma came with us. The highlight of the day was Maisa racing me down the double slides. She won two out of three.

Go Cougars

I’ll be rooting heavily for the Cascade baseball team at the state tournament.

This might be the Cougars’ best team ever (and that’s saying a lot). They’re 37-3 and ranked No. 1 in Class 2-A.

More impressive: They destroyed baseball powerhouse Dyersville Beckman in the substate final.

Off the disabled list

Maisa and I played catch the last two nights — her first attempt to do so since getting the brace off her arm.

I’m happy to report that she’s never thrown better, and she’s making good progress at catching fly balls.

If they could pitch like this in October …

Dodger pitchers Zack Greinke or Clayton Kershaw have combined for 72 consecutive scoreless innings. What a stat.

Here’s another stat for you: Kershaw is the first pitcher since 1900 with three straight starts allowing 0 runs, striking out 10+, walking none. (From Elias Sports Bureau via ESPN)

Delicious irony

Folks from Dyersville and Cascade had to go to “little” Farley last night to watch their boys play on the most beautiful baseball field in eastern Iowa. 

I love it. :-)
