And should you doubt the skill or beauty of these women, let me introduce Ms. Caitlin Lowe of the Arizona Wildcats (perhaps the Mecca of hot softball players):

Blown Up Like a Ketchup Packet

Ever wonder why some girls wear those silly looking cages on their batting helmets? Here's why:

Speaking of babysitters...never trust Pedobear.

Babysitters. Keep looking.

Your call on how bad you need to get out of the house sans kids.  But these folks might give me pause.

Keep watching.

(H/T to the chive)

Rick and Jerry would fight. And they would fight. And they would fight. But in the end, they would get along and have a good chuckle one would fight no more.

oh i fell over, oh I fell over again...and again.

Charles R. Black made his initial appearance in Knox County Superior Court on April 19. Black, 68, of Camden has been charged with aggravated assault for an incident April 7 where his wife, Lisa Black, told police he pushed her off Mt. Megunticook near Maiden Cliff, according to court documents. He was arrested and taken to Penobscot County Jail in Bangor following his release from Eastern Maine Medical Center on April 15. On April 19, he was transferred to Knox County Jail in Rockland.
Judge Patricia Worth set Black's bail at $100,000 cash or $240,000 surety. He had a variety of conditions placed on him. He may not have any contact with the victim or possess weapons, and must sign a contract with Maine Pre-Trial Services. He also cannot leave the state and must surrender his passport. Charles Black was represented by Walter McKee of Augusta.
According to an affidavit filed in Knox County Superior Court by Detective Dean Jackson of the Maine State Police, Lisa Black told first responders that she and her husband had driven to Mt. Megunticook, hiked to the top and were having lunch near the cross on Maiden Cliff.
At one point, Lisa Black told police, she stood up and started walking when she was struck on the back of the head three times. She was knocked to the ground and her husband Charles Black dragged her to the edge of the cliff and threw her over, according to the affidavit.
Lisa Black told police, the court documents state, she fell a short distance and got up and ran down the mountain to Route 52 for assistance. She told police as she was making her way down to the road, her husband fell down past her and appeared to be injured, according to the affidavit.
"It was reported that Lisa seemed to be scared and wanted to leave the area because she feared that her husband was still chasing her and wanted to kill her," according to the affidavit.
On April 7, Detective Jackson climbed Megunticook to collect evidence and recovered a backpack, which is believed to belong to Charles Black. It was found near the bottom of a steep drop near the bottom of Maiden Cliff. The backpack contained a camera, jacket, hat, rocks and other items belonging to Black.
The same day, Lisa Black was interviewed by Maine State Police Detective Jennifer Fiske at EMMC. She told the detective that she had inherited $4 million when her father died and that Charles Black had been taking her money without her permission, according to the affidavit.
She also told police that there were several other incidents involving her husband that made her feel as if he has been trying to kill her. According to the affidavit, a couple of weeks prior to this incident, Charles Black climbed a ladder to the attic and, while Lisa Black was at the bottom of the ladder, he fell down on top of her. Charles Black told his wife he passed out, according to the court documents.
Also around the same time frame, the two were up on Mt. Battie, also in Camden. According to the affidavit, Lisa Black walked close to the edge of the cliff and Charles Black was behind her and she was struck on the back of the head and she fell to the ground. Charles Black again said he passed out and the front of his head bumped the back of hers, according to the affidavit.
She also told the detective that her husband had contacted an old girlfriend in Arizona and the two had been having an online affair. She also told police that the two had been having marital problems and had been to counseling.
On April 8, Charles Black was interviewed by Detective Jackson. He told police that he and his wife hiked the mountain and were having a Subway sandwich. He said he picked up a couple of rocks to add to his rock collection and he put them in his backpack. The next thing he recalled was falling down a hill. He could not remember hitting Lisa Black or throwing her off the side of the mountain, according to the affidavit.
"He stated that if this happened, he could not remember it and he did not know why he would do this," Jackson wrote in the affidavit.
He did remember falling from the attic onto her and also falling into her on Mt. Battie.
Charles Black told police that he had been communicating with one of his old friends after she found him on Facebook and he said Lisa Black found out about it and was upset.
Black said that he felt everything was going well with their marriage at this time, but did say they had problems in the past and had been to counseling, according to the court documents.
