Beavers Everywhere!!!



This was an odd weekend...because of the beavers.

Let me explain...

ExplosiveSon's first baseball tournament was this weekend, and they did great. They took 2nd place in the tournament, running into a juggernaut in the finals that knocked us silly. It was a team from Corsicana called the "Beavers". They had gaudy orange uniforms, a 13 year old pitcher who looked like he was 17, and a real, stuffed beaver on top of their dugout wearing orange Mardi Gras beads. It was a good game for a few innings, but eventually they just proved to be too good and we couldn't hang on, settling for 2nd. On a side note, our team name is the Trojans, which led to a constant snicker from the coaching staff and parents about this being an epic battle between Trojans and Beavers, which also culminated in a million innuendo jokes. Good times...

So, when we get home, we settled in for a classic 80's comedy, wherein a young man discovers that all his problems are solved when he discovers that being a werewolf runs in his family and he grows 6 inches and can dunk a basketball. The only reason this movie jumped out at me is because the mascot of the high school that this particular werewolf attends is "The Beavers". Ok, this is starting to get weird....

So this morning, I am listening to the radio as they recap the closing ceremonies, and apparently there was a giant, inflatable beaver at the closing ceremonies! What is the deal??? Why is this semi-aquatic mammal haunting me all of a sudden? Is this a sign, or just a coincidence of epic proportions?

By the way, I am sunburned, windburned, have chapped lips and exhausted...and I couldn't be happier. Baseball season is what defines me, and it has finally started!


Update: Here is the giant inflatable beaver....
