This summer I am playing softball with the Vancouver Women's Fastpitch League on a Division II team called the Mariners. I chose this team for obvious reasons: the team colours include teal.

So, Monday night was our first game ... let's go ahead and summarize in the three-pluses-three-negatives format that my sport psych makes me review each skeleton race with.

Which aspects of the game were you most happy with?

Three years after the demise of my poor Expos, I have finally picked a new team to cheer for.

Let me tell you - this was no easy decision.

When you are born and raised by a ball-playing family in a ball-playing town you don't have much of a choice but to cheer for the team that your dad and your grandma cheer for. Especially when your dad slaps a 'Spos cap on your head before you can even swing a bat.

There's really only two good things about Super Bowl Sunday. First, the ridiculous varieties of junk food available in mass quantities. I contributed my family's famous chocolate chip cookies to said mass quantities. But for the record, the cookies weren't in honour of the Super Bowl. They are to celebrate the best thing about Super Bowl Sunday: the start of baseball season!
