Tonight was our first night game in a long time. We showed up at TeWinkle park with nobody else there and two baseball fields and a soccar field completely lit up. It was glowing and seemed WAY too good to be true.

In the usual Rocket Sauce style, we set up cones and expected to get kicked out eventually. As we were warming up, a handful of teenaged girls start stretching and cart-wheeling on the side of the field. Then "The Man" comes over to tell us we needed a permit. I knew it... I knew it was just too good to be true.

The Man was cool though because he turned on some lights for us in an unused, third baseball field. He really didn't have to do that. We looked for him after the game to slip him a twenty, but couldn't find him. Augie's looking into getting a permit for next week.

The game itself was awesome. We had 6 on 6 and everyone was extremely wiped out at the end. We were all used to playing only an hour or so at the end of daylight savings time. So tonight we played hard with what seemed like an endless amount of light.

We'll see what happens next week. The Man was talking something about $35-50 an hour for the field. We all agreed that we'd rather pay him and let him pay the city (wink wink) if he gets around to it.
