Job security...

Our softball head coach, Richie Bruister, had a great line at our Maroon and White Luncheon this past Tuesday afternoon at Outback Steakhouse. He got up and said - "My next career is going to be a weather man. That's the only job in the world where you can be wrong 75 percent of the time and still keep your job.". Good point made by Coach Bruister. Our TWU softball team was scheduled to host ECU for a pair of LSC crossover games on Tuesday afternoon, Mar. 24. The forecast on Monday called for an 80% chance of rain on Tuesday. So Coach Bruister and the ECU head coach (Destini Anderson) agreed to rescheduled the games for Wednesday afternoon when it was SUPPOSED to be clear and sunny. Unfortunately, the weather did not follow the script. Tuesday afternoon turned out to be beautiful and Wednesday brought us a three-hour plus downpour. Needless to say, our games against the Lady Tigers were washed out.

That's part of softball season, though. You've got to almost expect the unpredictable weather. Coach Bruister is going to try and reschedule the games against ECU for a later date in April. Check the softball schedule on to see what he works out.

Now our softball team will focus on getting ready for this weekend's 2009 Lone Star Conference Softball Crossover at the Durant, Multi-Sports Complex in Durant, Oklahoma. The schedule for the Crossover tournament is a hectic one - six games in three days - two games Friday, two games Saturday, and two games Sunday. Our new Assistant AD/SID Naveen Boppana will be traveling up to Durant for Friday and Saturday's games so perhaps he can throw some game updates up on this blog (that is if I get it worked out for him to post).
