8 December 2012 : A Pitcher’s Grip on the Sports Fast

Omaha Baseball, Circa 1968So I logged on to the Seattle Times website earlier this evening (the front page, not the sports page) to see the weather forecast. I’d heard there was a chance of snow in Seattle in a few days and was curious to see how serious of a chance this is. You know, I’m a school director and all so a little snow in Seattle can cause widespread panic and school closures. I figured I should be prepared for the chaos.

It turns out that the threat is quite small so I turned instead to watching the Sarah Silverman Program on Netflix with Melinda. But not before my eye got a glimpse of a sports headline, right there on the front page! What’s this, the Mariners signed Jason Bay? Really?

Me, I’m not sure because I resisted the temptation to click on the link. I’m in the midst of a sports fast, as you know.

Today’s photo comes from the 1960’s. That’s my paternal grandmother, a fan of the Minnesota Twins, coaching her eldest son’s three sons. That’s me in the center. I’ve got a pitcher’s grip on that baseball. Nice hair, too, eh?
