There is a first in so many things. Well today I got my first shiner playing softball. In all the years of contact sports I never had a black eye until now. It must be a sign of old age. We were warming up before the game talking away and I lazily put my glove to the ground and my other hand at my side. Next thing I know POP right in my eye. It must have hit a rock cause it shot up so fast. This ball was thrown into the ground from first and not hard at all either. Well I got picked on the rest of the night by the other guys. I have to admit I was nervous about playing third after that. I had one get by me by their strong hitter and it kicked up real hard too. All I could do was get the glove on it but it never stopped.
