Lamenting the Loss…

Ok, leeches. We lost 16-12. I had a really good feeling about last night too. So there you have it, the first three of you to comment, be sure and leave an email address or something so I can get in touch with you. What did I ever do to you karma? I hope you’re happy.

So that was below average but the morale here is, as always, think before you post! 🙂


Rebecca - I was really pulling for you for a win however I think I lost my focus while channeling winning thoughts to you because I was too busy trying to get the dancer in the post below to switch directions. I have spent way too much time over the last few days trying to get the lady to switch on command–all to no avail. Anyways, sorry to hear about the loss. Hope you had lots of sympathy beer after.

Brandy - Sorry to hear about the loss…you should really stop the whole posting the day before saying how you’re gonna win…you are puttin a crazy jinx on your team 🙂

Kirstin - You are crazy, stranger! What is winning anyways? You had fun while you played, right? I know, that is a very girl thing to say. Hopefully you and your team are not too heartbroken!

Dave Q. - Loser.

Tonight’s Game…

So I am going to go ahead and call a win for our softball team tonight before the game is even played! If we DON’T win tonight I will give the first 3 people that leave a comment in tomorrow’s blog, “Lamenting the Loss”, a free Sprayberry Photography T-Shirt! That’s right boys and girls, a friggin SPRAYBERRY PHOTOGRAPHY T-SHIRT! Of course, I am predicting tomorrow’s blog will be titled “Celebrating the Win!” but if it’s not, our loss could be your gain. Our current record is 1-6 and the game starts at 7:00 PM at Alva Jo Fischer Sports Complex on the NE side of San Antonio – for those that would like to witness this spectacle live for themselves.

Now I am fully expecting the winners, should there actually be any, to hang on to these treasured keepsakes and not put them on eBay in a vain attempt to retire early. Of course, once you win it, who am I to tell you what you can do with it.

Tomorrow’s blog post could come at anytime between midnight tonight and midnight on Wednesday so stay tuned!

Which way did she go?

Take a look at this image. Is it spinning clockwise or counter-clockwise?

I saw this on someone else’s blog last week and it had me mesmerized. Allegedly, is you see the image spinning counter-clockwise you are psycho! Heh, just joking, if you see it spinning counter-clockwise you are supposed to be more left-brained. Clockwise, naturally, would mean you’re more right brained.

Now personally, the first time I saw it, I saw it spinning clockwise and I couldn’t make it switch directions. The next day, I went back to the page and it was spinning counter-clockwise, but I was able to concentrate and change it back and forth. Today I am looking at it and it is spinning counter-clockwise and I can’t change it.

My good friend Horbi just came over and he says that the image itself keeps changing back and forth and he isn’t trying to make it change. I, on the other hand, have been sitting here looking at the exact same thing he is looking at and it hasn’t changed for me, still counter-clockwise. It’s possible that Horbi is drunk.

For those of you wondering what it means if you are able to make it change direction, frankly, I have no idea but I am leaning toward my original hypothesis – you are psycho!

Are there still hobos?

So before I get to these pictures, I have to tell a really funny story about when I was 4 or 5 years old. My older brother, Rick, had decided to dress up as a hobo for Halloween. I was just a midget and I had no idea what a hobo was so my mom explained to me that they are people that hang around train tracks and jump on trains to get from place to place. I actually thought this sounded like a pretty cool thing to do so I decided to be a hobo for Halloween too. Not only that but for years after that whenever someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always told them I wanted to be a hobo – not even knowing I was being a little goof.

So I wore the costume to church and everyone kept calling me a bum which kinda made me mad. Then when I wore it to school the next day, nobody even knew what a hobo was, they kept calling me a bum and I actually got in a fight with one guy and got sent to the office. When I went trick or treating that night, everyone kept saying what a cute little bum I was. It was really a pretty crappy Halloween for me that year but there is still a little part of me that thinks it would be cool to jump trains to get from place to place.

Just thought you might like to know that…

What the #%^*?

Ok, first things first. Who in the Sam Hill voted for Kwanza as the best holiday? Sometimes I think I have a blog readership with a few closet short bus riders. Of course that would make me a short bus driver and you can’t exactly pimp a short bus so I am retracting the short bus reader comment… for now…

So I am sure you’re all just chomping at the bit to know how our softball team did this week. Well, the truth is, we still only have one win BUT at least this week I didn’t personally have the Parks and Recreation Department questioning their decision to move us up based purely on my play! I actually did alright this week for an old guy. Of course, we still lost but that didn’t make my post-game beer go down any less smoothly. I mean, you had to see how bad I was last week to appreciate my pride in this week’s demonstration of mediocrity. Seriously!

Like last week, I had to get the softball update out early so as to NOT cover up the awesome images we shot on Saturday. This weekend I did an e-session with Brandy and Dusty. E-session is short for engagement session for those keeping score at home. Anyway, I absolutely LOVED this session and I am pretty sure you will too unless you’re blind or something. These two were just naturals in front of the camera and I think you will see that if I ever get some highlights of their session posted.

I know I joked about this a couple of months back but I am going to have an honest to goodness contest right here on the ole blog-o-rama! That’s right kids, I am seriously thinking about giving away an AWESOME Sprayberry Photography t-shirt. You can’t buy these things in stores and not just because no stores really carry them – although that’s probably part of it.

Seriously, who wouldn’t want to wear our propaganda around town – or some other town if you’re not in San Antonio? I might even break down and get some people to model these t-shirts for your viewing pleasure. How about them apples?

Anyway, feel free to break off a comment if you have a good idea for a contest because the sooner we get a winner for this unknown contest, the sooner someone is going to have the BEST CHRISTMAS they’ve ever had in their entire life… maybe…
