    Subject: Softball crisis this Saturday

    The Washington Times Softball Team is in first place fresh off a doubleheader sweep of AOL and USA Today.

    Saturday we play CNN and CBS News.

    We’ll play if we can get a couple women to volunteer to join us for at least a day!

    Several regulars are unavailable and we are in danger of forfeiting two games.

    Please, if you have played before or have thought of playing, this would be an ideal Saturday to help the team!

    If anybody has an idea or person to suggest, please feel free to let me know.

    Let’s put our collective heads together to avoid the unthinkable.

    Thanks,

    Charlie
