So I’ve been waiting for a moment when I could meld a photo of DLG with this photo of myself:
Little did anyone know on the field that day that I stood there… destined to become an all-conference HONORABLE MENTION in 6A baseball for the state of Oklahoma in 1996, 1997 AND 1998!! Take that Stephen Strasburg (signed a $15 gazillion contract right out of college last year if you don’t know).
Well… the other day a buddy of mine came over with his five year old who had just gotten out of T-ball practice and I snapped this pic of DLG:
So… there’s a little bit of an age gap between my picture and hers… but who cares?
Okay maybe you… but you don’t count.
If DLG had been a little boy… I’d already be carefully training her hand-eye coordination, strengthening her rotator cuff and plastered her room with baseball images. But alas… she is not of male origin. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I can still teach all the rules of the game. There’s nothing cooler than a girl who knows more about baseball than most dudes.
Also, if she marries a pro baseball player… I could get season tickets for free!
One week until the baseball season starts… who else is excited? And who isn’t?
