There’s nothing like watching the home team win 8-4 with a rousing grand slam home run. Sends the Under Toad right off the field. In what’s becoming an annual event, I went with Gale, Helen, and Tom to watch Trenton Thunder beat the Hartford Yard Goats this afternoon, We could not have asked for a more perfect summer afternoon of baseball. For a moment I could forget that the Under Toad visited twice last week. Right after that post, a CT scan identified a mass on my youngest brother’s left lung. He’s being scheduled for a biopsy this week.
In the spirit of my lifelong support for the Brooklyn Dodgers, I’ve been wearing a Chicago White Sox cap this summer. They’re in last place in their division, but I look forward for them to beat the Cubs tonight to win their series, which is now tied 1-1. That would end a perfect day of baseball, and send the Under Toad out into Lake Michigan.
