Are you a baseball fan? If you are, you had quite a night last night.
It's no mystery to those who stop by regularly that we are.
While there was talk at the beginning of the day that "things might change" and "a lot can happen", no one was prepared for the amazing night that baseball offered. Let's see, the following teams needed the last night to finalize either their chance at going to the play-offs, or to define exactly who they would play in the play-offs: Detroit, New York, Boston, Tampa Bay, Texas, St.Louis, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Arizona.....uh, who did I miss?
While watching my beloved Tigers, I was sucked into the drama that enfolded all over the country. I wasn't alone. This is why I love baseball....... anything can happen as long as you still are up to bat. That's a good thing to remember for a lot of things in life.
Our friend Carrie, the genius behind Miss Rosie's Quilt Company is a fan too. We have had plans several times to meet in a Major League ballpark to enjoy the game. But, as what happens with busy people, it hasn't happened yet. Carrie mentioned in her last email that wouldn't it be fun if her Arizona Diamondbacks and the Tigers met in the World Series. That is an actual possibility. What fun! There is a certain grizzled ex-player that manages the Diamondbacks.
He once was a fierce competitor for the Detroit Tigers.
A certain beloved companion might or might not be named after him.
October is looking very exciting.
