I made it home in time to take Andy to his first spring baseball practice. I'm glad he like baseball - the thinking mans sport.

I like baseball a lot. My sister asked me what I found interesting about it once- I tried to explain it wasn't the result of a single game, but instead watching the wear & tear on a bullpen over the course of a series, seeing what prospects were poised to make an impact, how everyone on the roster is performing over the course of a season. I think there's a lot of overlap with running.

Hey Rob, are you running the Running of the Leopards on Saturday?

Wy yes James, I am running with the leopards. I'll be using a skateboard on the downhill portions.
