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.
The White Sox lost last night, but that’s because the Cubs have come awake after the All Star Game. Both are fighting the good fight.
