I have been remiss (since I have been traveling) to mention that because the NY Yankees beat the Reds I was given the opportunity to guest blog over at AmericanCatholic.org courtesy of Barbara Baker (who you know by the twitter handle @BarbaraKB). A snip:
“Click-clack, click-clack, click-click-click. Click-clack, click-clack, click-click-click.”
I looked up when I heard the sound and there he was, Yankeee first baseman Don Mattingly, taking two steps in his cleats and then skidding his spikes on the floor to create sparks.
“Cool, huh?” he said to me, a cub reporter in my first game covering the New York Yankees for WFAN radio.
I was immediately transported back to being a 15-year-old and trying to ask a girl out for the first time. That went badly. She laughed at me and then told all her friends. I thank God Facebook didn’t exist in 1985. It was bad enough with just a small group knowing, nevermind the whole school.
Read the rest and enjoy a nice summer post on baseball and discernment.
