Times have Changed...
When did it all change…? Somewhere along the way, something happened. Something unexpected, something merely magical in 2001 and 2002 changed to something of disarray. Somewhere along the way, on the path from the East Taunton’s Mill Field to the old dirty field in
When did it change that the games itself were more important than the company of friends during the summer softball classics? When was winning so important rather than having fun and laughs in the dugout? When huddling up prior to games was meaningful and motivating? When did the laughs after the game turn into “I have to get up for work in the morning see you later”? When the sound of empty cans falling out the 30-pack cartons on the parking lot sounded like a train wreck? When did having beer come out your nose because you laughed so hard at a Jeff Foote or Jimmy McNaught Joke, not be fun any longer? When did getting 16 wrist bands from Mike seem foolish? When did 10 for 10 Fun not be fun any more? When did cheering for a Lance’s homer that was over the limit and an out, not be fun any longer? When did being lot lizards until 1 AM not be the in thing any more? When did Jeff being Manny not be funny any longer? When getting 102 emails during your lunch break was a great lunch? When was work secondary to reading emails between Shayne and whoever arguing over nothing? When was receiving the line-up via email 5 times with different line-ups each for that night’s game not a stupid thing? When was getting smashed the night before the Finals not the cool thing to do? When was getting smashed the night before the Finals not the cool thing to do, when we said we will stay in? When was it cool to break your wrist and no one would get mad at Sully for doing it? When banquets were fun to have just to have another reason to get together and drink? When is seeing Das lip-sink the New Kids not the funniest thing ever at a banquet? When was going to Bailey’s after the game and getting a free appetizer the only reason for leaving the parking lot? When did Joey laughing at himself no longer funny? When was Eddie’s animated story too long to listen to any more? When was seeing JC wearing a hat not funny? When was Smitty’s arm so weak that he could not make it to second base and it was still OK? When was being compared to Star Wars characters funny and also fitting, not cool any longer?
When did it change? Was it when the taste of a championship was no longer a taste we never tasted? Was it that winning became easier that we did not have to grind out wins and come together as a unit to win? Was it that we finally reach our peak performance and the competition never raised to the level that we have reached? This was not just an overnight thing; it is a progressive decline in unity, teamwork and collaboration. What is it? Where did the swagger go?
Why does it have to be the “GOOD OLD DAYS”?
