At my house, we are baseball fans, as in the longer version of that word–fanatics. (Except for my daughter. She hates baseball. Really. She hates it. We have a video of her as a baby, sitting in her little pumpkin seat as we watched baseball on television. “She’ll probably love baseball too,” I said on the video, and then she tossed a block and screamed. That was pretty prophetic.)
But, my husband, son, and I love baseball. I know there are plenty of people, and that includes many of my readers, who don’t love baseball–and that’s o.k. (Well, sort of o.k. Kidding.)
The picture was taken at the one and only game I attended this year. It wasn’t the best game (which was unusual this year), but I still had fun, as I always do. I like to soak in the ambiance while I’m there–the crowd, the hotdogs, the beautiful stadium (but I still miss our old stadium, in all of its round, glowing glory. It was the stadium of my youth.) We always keep our tickets from the games. We’re kind of dorky like that.
Our Cardinals have so much heart and character, and much of the team this year is talented young rookies. I think I’d have to love them even if they weren’t my home team. Tonight, they’ll face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first game of the NLCS (that’s National League Championship Series, for those of you who don’t follow baseball.)
So I just thought I’d pop in here today to give a little cheer for my team, and let you know that I have some projects in the works that I’ll be showing you here soon.
Enjoy your weekend! (I’ll be watching baseball.)
Update: The Cardinals are going to the World Series! Joy!
