If it weren't so darn cold!
I am a fan of batting cages. And I say that knowing that I absolutely suck at them. But, there's just something about letting out a little unspent energy, or displaced frustration, by taking a full swing at a tiny little target with a baseball or softball bat. It really is quite a release.
SO, are there batting cages in Albuquerque? This town loves sports, so I figure there HAS TO be some kind of local batting cage.
Speaking of sports, while in our weekly staff meeting, we had the excitement of the Astana Cycling Team passing by while traveling east on Mountain Road today. There was some excitement and applause (not like they could hear us or anything....). One of my coworkers is a huge cycling buff, and is trying really hard to get in to the event tomorrow at the hispanic cultural center. She's all starstruck. I keep telling her that it's useless to fall for any of those boys - they're so small the wind could carry them off! (I hear they weigh an average of like 120lbs! Probably an exaggeration, but still funny!)
