Dude, sorry I haven't been on the blog for a few days. I had to make some cards for my sistah. But we're good now. I reeeeeally should be working on my Sunday School lesson, but....nah. Not tonight.
Kay. So after we walked around the Niagara Falls greenbelt, we caught a boat called the Maid of the Mist, which took us right up to the base of the falls. Holy mist. If we hadn't worn our ponchos, we would have been SOAKED. My new waterproof mascara was a good buy, as it turns out.
I really like watching baseball, because I understand it. I played softball, so the game makes sense to me. I have a hard time watching football, because I just don't get it. I've had probably 50 guys try to explain the game to me throughout my life, and as hard as I try, I just cannot wrap my brain around it. So going to a pro baseball game was a real treat for me. And the Blue Jays were playing the New York Yankees! It was fun to see people you hear about and see on TV or in magazines, like Derek Jeter and A. Rod, in action.
There were two crazy things that happened during the game we went to that night that were actually highlighted in all the sports talk shows later that weekend, like, "highlights of the week" type things. The first thing involved the Blue Jays' pitcher:
It was so crazy and funny, yet as the pitcher walked off the mound, he didn't even crack a smile. Loosen up, Jenkins!
The second thing was a really great double play that the Blue Jays made. The batter hit it in the vicinity of third base, the third baseman tagged third and got that runner out, then threw it to first, where the first baseman got the batter out. I'm not sure why that made it to highlights of the week - maybe double plays don't often happen in baseball? I know they happened in softball all the time. :)
"Come on, Swisher! Hit that ball! You are the working man's hero!!"
"I love you, Chavez! I have a poster of you on my wall! You and me are emotionally connected!"
"Good pitch, Garcia! He can't handle the fire that you're throwing at him!"
"You can do it, Suzuki! You need to self-actualize!!"
"Jeter, I see that you keep messing with your belt; I can buy you a new one if you need it!"
Seriously, I laughed and laughed. That dude made my day.
And the Blue Jays lost. Big time.
