My daughter had a fastpitch softball tournament recently. She's nine years old, but the girls, excuse me, women, she was playing? They had to be drinking age. They were 6 ft tall and ready to rumble.
We watched our little rugrats giggle out to the field, completely oblivious to the ass-kicking that was about to happen. The first girl up to bat was ready to crush it. She let out a breath and I think she said, "fucking kill it".
What is injected into food these days, pure steroids? These girls were wearing makeup and bras for crissake. And they needed the bras, which is even more baffling. This is an 8-10 yr league.
Is the rest of the world evolving into larger, stronger people, and our entire softball is exempt?
I looked over at their dugout. I think one was spitting out chew and another was nursing a hangover with a cup of coffee and a cigarette. Let's put it this way: if they were in my wedding, they would not have stood out as being children.
The assault lasted one hour and thankfully no one was hurt. But I'm still left totally confused. We're they 8-10 years old and we need to seriously contemplate the hormones in food? Or did the entire team push the age limit on the league?
I'm hoping they were assholes that pushed the age limit on the league. Because if some of those girls were 8 years old...damn. Childhood is getting cut too short.
