Is it really September? There's something romantic about the sound of this month's name. Maybe it's the songs I associate with it. Neil Diamond's

September morn . . .
We danced until the night became a brand new day
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way...

or Frank Sinatra's

Oh, it's a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn't got time for the waiting game
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I'll spend with you
These precious days I'll spend with you

Did you see Bill Moyer's interview with Robert Bly on last night's Journal? For those of you who enjoy poets and their poetry, watch it. You'll be glad you did. The transcript helps make out some of the speech that was not clear to me. I love his observations on the greedy soul, war, and depression.

Ricky sent this info on Cooper's season opener:

We Win! Bulldogs 11 Crackers 8
It was a great performance by our brand new team the Tampa Bulldogs! Dressed in Maroon and White, they really looked great and played scrappy, heads up baseball and didn't let the 4 defensive errors hurt them. We are playing in Tampa at the AAU First Pitch Classic (11u division) with Rain threatening all around all weekend, but weren't hampered by rain or lightening last night. Weather outlook today doesn't seem so good, but we'll be there ready to take the field at Noon provided everyone's on schedule.

Hope today's game is a win for the Bulldogs, too! Wonder where they got the idea for the name Bulldogs and the colors maroon and white? Hmm...

Update after today's game:

We Win! Bulldogs 8 Hawks 0

Led by a strong pitching performance again today, the Tampa Bulldogs won 8-0 in 4 innings (Mercy Rule). Joey gave up a single to the #2 hitter of the Seffner Hawks, and that was the only hit off him…….a One hit shutout in 40 total pitches with 7 strikeouts.
The Bulldogs are now 2-0 in the tournament, and we're awaiting the Championship Bracket to be finalized to start the single elimination games in the morning……weather permitting.
