Hey yo, Liger Legionaries. It’s hot outside.

It’s so hot, that I have to (sometimes) ditch the collared shirt and jeans for more comfy summer attire, such as a t-shirt and a pair of basketball shorts. Please forgive me if you visit with me and I blind you with my atrocious farmer’s tan.

I mean, it’s pretty bad. I remember getting hot when I worked club baseball in the Texas Panhandle, but as long as you’re staying hydrated or hanging out in the shade, you’re quite all right.

It’s a different story with humidity. I believe there’s at least five times where I soaked through all of my clothes with how much sweat I kicked.

The latest of those bouts of getting sweat soaked was this past Thursday, where I was in a non-air conditioned gym for a photoshoot. Talk about a sauna in there.

Since we’re touching on the subject of summertime, let’s talk about the boys and girls of summer – the South Central Calhoun baseball and softball teams.
