Gratuitous Domestic Posting (TM) - Gels of Summer Division


Last evening the nine year old stayed up with me to watch the Nats game. I've mentioned here before her belief that first baseman Dmitri Young is the bestest ever, but she now has the entire starting line-up memorized, and is beginning to formulate opinions of all of them. I missed the first inning and she insisted on recapping it for me with play-by-play commentary. And as the Nats' first at-bat included three doubles and a home run, you can imagine that she had an awful lot to talk about.

I tell you truly that no matter how many other mistakes I might make as a father, I at least know that I've done something right by getting the gel so hooked into baseball.

Good thing you didn't get her hooked on the Pittsburgh Pirates. She's too young for despair and horror.
