A Beautiful Thing


This is how it's supposed to be....

http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/lo...208060461.html

Quote:
In less than a week Hyun-jin Ryu has gained another two million fans.

Not for his pitching that could net him the 2013 Rookie of the Year. Not for his South Korean nationality, which has earned him fans across the globe. And not even from the exposure of playing in Los Angeles.

No, Ryu gained the fans because of a YouTube video in which he plays catch with a young fan at Dodger Stadium.

Ryu's viral video follows the positive exposure Matt Kemp received for giving a disabled fan his jersey - an act caught on video that also went viral.

A Beautiful Thing


Years ago, when I was about that boys age. My father took me to a Seattle Pilates game- their only year in existence.

One of their players allowed me to hold and examine a batting doughnut while he was doing his warm ups- a big deal to an aspiring little league player.

While I don't remember the exact conversation between myself and the player, I still have a fond memory of that day. I'm sure that youngster playing catch will have similar memories in 45 years.

I didn't know Pilates was competitive. What next, death match yoga?

I actually assumed it was that stupid auto correct feature that always changes my words and meanings. I asked my friend if she wanted to go blowing the other day.

A plumber only needs to know 5 things.

It takes a small mind that can only spell things one way.
