one of my favorite comedies ever - tom hanks played another classic role before he started winning oscars the next two years. it also produced the memorable quote, "there's no crying in baseball!" i have to say - it was tom hank's underrated comedic work that made me love his movies.
Answers to prior blog pictures: 1,2,4,6 - me. 3,5,7,8 - HM. pretty crazy, huh? i'm jealous of her resemblance to calvin....gummy smile and all. if only his head looked more like a pill....
todays post revolves around sports; baseball in particular. cal's first astros game was this past weekend. uncle H was able to snag some dugout level seats along the first base line. HM was appreciative to mention that we didn't have to breath lighter air in the nosebleeds -- her way of sarcastically telling me that the first time taking her to the field-formerly-known-as-Enron was not satisfactory. thanks babe.

we were only about 5 rows up from this point, but as you can see we were pretty darn close. good luck bringing you back to this spot buddy!
as a sports fanatic, i like to get into playful debates with HM on how i plan to build an athletic team from my offspring. obviously, she prefers for them to be intellectuals first. given our gene pool, i usually concede that our kids will have the greatest chance of success through education (and HM's slave driven study methods). BUT, i always mention that i will do my very best to ensure that ALL of our kids have decent athleticism. boy nerds who throw/run like girls typically get bullied (unless they run like serena williams, but then that's just plain scary).
i would like to mention that out of the three professional sporting events that cal has attended - the home team has won all of them. good luck charm, possibly? maybe a texans game next year for the little fella. and even though cal was in a public place, he was NOT a fan of the roller coaster cheers and quietness a baseball game brings:
|apparently, there IS crying in baseball!|
on a side note - 3 yrs ago, HM and i hosted a rehearsal dinner with our family and close friends. we still talk about our wedding like it was yesterday....happy anniversary, my love!
