I want to apologize for slacking on the blog lately. It’s been a productive past 3 days, I’ve gotten in two lifts, a haircut, got some new batting gloves, and eaten some vegetables. I feel pretty good about everything that went on the last 3 days except for the fact we’ve lost everyday this week (now at 6 straight losses).
I was planning on growing out my hair- but it looked awful and I needed to change it up. I was clueless on where to go to get my haircut and my host brother, Ryan, suggested SportsClips. I immediately ruled them out because of a horrific experience 8 or 9 years ago in Nebraska. (Flashback) When I showed up for my haircut, I was excited to transform a usually bad experience (haircut) to a good one with “sports.” There were tons of TV’s around the salon, but I didn’t have a chance to watch any of them because the lady painfully yanked my hair for 45 minutes. Not only did she yank my hair for 45 minutes, it was a terrible haircut. I will never go back to SportsClips. So, looking for alternate options, I found a GreatClips…much safer choice- and it was a really good cut.
This week has been hard for the team- we have lost 6 straight. Hopefully, we can end that streak tonight against Waterloo. We have not fielded well or hit well during this skid. Last night Nate Theunissen (Central Michigan) ripped an oppo bomb in the bottom of the ninth, which brought excitement to the dugout and the crowd. Jordan Owen (UT-Martin) also crushed a groundball that skipped up and hit their third baseman in the head. He was okay, but man was that ball smoked.
Congrats to Derek Jeter (amazing), Robinson Cano, and Prince Fielder for their accomplishments this week. It was awesome to see Cano’s dad throwing to him in the Homerun Derby.
Going to workout after the game today. Getting after it- can’t wait to bring all that I’ve learned to Davidson in the fall.
