Almost blew it last time.

Almost blew it last time.

I got the chance to sit down the other night for cigars and good conversation with an 80-something year old football coach (and former Penn State college player himself), a retired fellow with grandkids, and my realtor who is also a swell gentleman. What I learned was that baseball is no longer just cards and stale bubblegum. At my age in the game I'd better know some stats. Since I'm clueless in that department I added my "Go +St. Louis Cardinals " to which was answered by blank stares and emptiness. Thinking I'd blown it and just before resorting to the recovery comment of "just kidding", the older guy, known as "Coach", comes in with "They're a good team, now!" Yes, I know, that's why I said it.

Moral of the story is: "It is better to remain silent and let men think of you a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt." Fortunately this one turned out okay. On that note... How about a picture! This is one of my favorites from this past fall's Cub Scout camping trip. It's me and two of our Tiger-den dad's +Austin Montgomery and +Kyle Walters. In our Pack you can't be a good leader without inappropriately short shorts. Dwell on it, soak it in, it's time to begin another year!
