I used to share a blog with Melissa, but she's been MIA for a few months, so I made it all mine! Random thoughts on my every day life to bore you with.

Boys don't cry

OK, so tonight I went to the gym and decided that I was going to run until I had burnt 500 calories. That apparently takes me over an hour, mostly because I started to get a cramp at the end. Oh, and I didn't run the whole time. Maybe half of it, which is still an accomplishment. Go me. Anyhow, I was watching the Little League World Series. These little boys are pretty good (the Braves game was on the next tv over and the kids were more entertaining). They have down the smug looks, the cute looks at the camera, the happy "I just hit a home run" looks, and all that. But then, their little boy sides come out when they strike out, or lose. You can see the tears welling up in their eyes and it totally makes you remember that these are just kids. And it makes me mad that the cameras show them crying, because it's hard to be tough when you go back to school and everyone saw you crying on tv. Sure it's for a good cause, but film the happy kids please!

First of all dudes that cry are wimps 99.9% of the time. But when it comes to sports man, it is okay to let out the tears when you lose.

Aww, I feel bad for the little boys. I think I saw part of that, and I felt soooo bad for them. They're just little kids but they're already being scouted and they have too much to live up to. Let them be kids! Or just film the happy ones...
