Getting better

Our baseball team is getting pretty good now. It took us a few weeks to start to gel, and considering we are the new team, being our first year together and all, we're doing alright.
Most teams we are playing have been together for four to five years.
Our current record is 8-14. If the playoffs started right now, we'd be in the "C" division. It still pisses me off that there is a team that is undefeated after 22 games, outscoring the other teams 260-55. We have a mercy rule, and the game is called if the other team is ahead by 10 runs.
How fun would that be? You go out with your team, destroy the opposition, then go home after only 30 minutes of baseball. Woo!

The best thing I enjoy about playing is that you get to see your co-workers outside of the work environment. We have to maintain a certain level of professionalism, so it's kind of hard to be "yourself" all the time.
You can relax, have a few beers, and tell those bad jokes without repercussions.
I'm really looking forward to the playoffs at the end of August. Go Skeletal Remains!!!!

P.S. I didn't pick the team name.
