On Friday I went to a Lincoln Saltdogs baseball game. Much of my family was there as it was the second annual game that we attended as a memorial to for my cousin.

Both years I have participated in the between inning game called Knockerball. There are four people playing the game, two teams of two. The goal is to run into the player on the other team and not let them cross the finish line on the other side, but to also cross the finish line yourself while wearing big inflatable balls around your upper body.

Last year I was on the winning team and faired pretty well. This year however, I was flattened almost instantly. It had to be hilarious to watch. I was laughing as I fell out of the ball I was in when I got knocked down. My dad was not impressed at all. We had decided to play the game as guys versus girls and my dad thought that my cousin could have went a little easier on me. I thought it was fine. I was a little sore on Saturday, but it was all in fun. I’m hoping that someone else will want to play next year though.

Now on to your flakes.
