All four guys except for Gopher have been on the team. Gopher was recruited and should be on the team if he is what the coaches thought that he was when they watched him play last year. On the other hand, Buddy is safe and sound and has three more years left of eligibility after his red shirt sophomore season...Sadly, California and Dog are on the "bubble" according to the leftie and therefore stand a large chance of not making the team this year.
Once again, there will be anger, resentment, and lots of fun (NOT!) in the house. How are they going to handle it? I don't have an answer since they are still trying to figure out how to live with one another this year.
What does BP mom do? The answer is "nothing..." I will listen and offer feedback when asked. I also plan on helping him to figure out his emotions on the subject, since he wants all his friends and room mates on the team. It is going to be awkward if the two guys do not make it....another thought...what if three make it and the fourth does not...talk about angst! The guys won't be able to talk about baseball without hurting the other guys feelings.
Time to learn yoga, TM, and guided imagery....No one ever said life was fair.....Just take a look in the pediatric cancer ward....have a great day!
