Well, it's Sunday evening, and I'm back to give everyone my weekend rundown!
We'll kick things off with Friday night - and oh, what a night it was! No, I didn't meet my Prince Charming. Not exactly, anyways. But I was reminded of how friggin' much I love Mark Wahlberg. My apologies to Sara and Stacy, who have already had to listen to me go on and on about this beautiful man - but I can't help it! We saw "Invincible", the true story of how the Philadelphia Eagles held open tryouts in the 70's to try and bolster a truly pathetic football team. One man stood out - Vince Papale. And after a grueling training camp, he officially made the team, giving his friends and family in South Philly something to be proud of. In true Disney fashion, it was one of those inspirational sports movies that makes you feel so good when you leave the theatre. I, of course, was mostly drooling over the two hours I got to look at Mark Wahlberg's muscles. Good gosh, he was buff. And oh-so-hot. Definitely buying that DVD when it comes out!
Saturday morning, we got an early start, hitting the road at 8 for Williamsburg, where the Quyon Flyers Jr. Fastball team was a participant in the Casey at Bat Ball tourney. We officially finished in third place out of six teams, but the guys really played well, and in their last game today which would have propelled them to the finals had they won, they took the defending champ Williamsburg Cigars to 9 innings before finally succumbing to their powerful bats. In both today's game, and last night vs. Carp I4C Victory, they weren't expected to come close, but both times they made the eventual victors work for their wins! Congrats to the boys for a great season!
The weekend in general was really fun. I think probably my favourite moment was after last night's game, we returned to the MacIntosh Inn where we were staying in nearby Morrisburg, and we headed to the pub for dinner. It was Karaoke Night, and while we ate we were treated to the usual Karaoke stuff (much like RVI, I thought) - a series of renditions of Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, & Shania Twain songs. Until...the Flyers boys appeared on the scene. I knew when they showed up, things were bound to get crazy!
And that's exactly what happened when Steve, Ben, & Moe took to the stage, serving up a big homerun with their performance of "Crazy Train"! Everyone in the place was laughing and cheering by the time the guys were done. It was awesome. However, I would recommend the guys stick to playing ball - singers, they are NOT! They gave us all a few good laughs, though. That moment alone was worth going for the trip! (Apparently after we left, they continued to storm the stage and please the crowd with Metallica's "Enter Sandman" and even a unique version of "Bette Davis Eyes", among others. The girls in the crowd were loving it. Those Karaoke guys thought they'd hit the jackpot and thanked the ball players for turning the night into an unexpected party. While they may be known as a decent ball team, they are even more renowned for their partying skills!)
Other than that, it was a rather uneventful weekend. Oh, and to prove what a small world we live in: Yesterday afternoon, while having a snack in the motel's restaurant with Kara, Chris, and Caden, guess who strolls in? None other than Mr. & Mrs. Conrod. What are the flippin' odds of that?!?! They were in town to see a play, of course. Too bad Mrs. Conrod wasn't around a few hours later to see how well she taught some of her former students to command the stage!
So that's about all I have to tell you, folks! No boyfriend was found. Nothing overly exciting happened. But it was a good time, and although I'm tired, I'm definitely glad I went. Hope everyone had a good weekend!!
