Slow Pitch

Isaac, me and my mom ~ Texas vs. Tampa Bay
Baseball's in our blood. I grew up playing softball and going to Ranger games. Isaac fell asleep as a kid in Papua New Guinea listening to taped Tiger games sent by his uncle (awww...). He lived a year of middle school in Duncanville, TX, and we think it's possible that we were at Arlington Stadium as kids enjoying a mutual game. We both played second base growing up and have each had a dream to visit every ballpark in the US (I guess we better hurry up and make it to Yankee Stadium!).

College World Series game this summer with Chris & Rachel
Look how well they keep their grounds!
Now if Isaac were to write a baseball post next week the difference in our understanding and approach to the sport would be quite clear. He will rant and rave about the injustice of the manager's choice of pitcher based on his current ERA, while I will comment on a funny-looking wind-up or how well they have kept their grounds. However, we would both agree it's fun. So much fun, in fact, that my wedding present to him was to be a Tigers fan ~ complete with track jacket for him and hoodie for me (look for pic next week). :)

Enjoying our favorite sport with people we love is one of the ways we are purposefully slowing down this year. Go Tigers! (and Rangers!) ;)
