We Are the Champions (I Think)

... Pirates!
Originally uploaded by BookMamma
It was the top of the first inning, the Pirates vs. the Orioles. The late afternoon sun was hot and the breeze carried a whiff of sunscreen and bug spray on its breath.

The Pirates had a runner already on first when Kieran got up to bat. He hit a hard line drive all the way to the pitcher's mound and leisurely strolled to first. You could cut the tension in the air with a bowie knife.

But that didn't disuade Finn "The Shark". Another line drive brought Kieran to second and Finn planted firmly on first. Upon arrival, The Shark turns to the bleachers and says "Thank you! Thank you!" and bows repeatedly to the crowd.

I kid you not.

Last night was Finn's very first t-ball game. It was the first time he ever played a game in an official capacity. His first time to make it to home plate. His first "good game" hand slap line with the other team. I cried a little behind my sunglasses.

Check out the whole game in the Flickr album! Just click on the photo.
