While I was getting Trot out of his car seat after they got home from church tonight, he kept rambling about "my hat". I thought he was talking about my Red Sox cap, which I honor Burt Reynold's "Bandit" character by adhering to the motto of "this hat only comes off for one thing".
Thankfully he was referring to his Fireman's hat which was laying in the basket beside the van. After repeated attempts by his Mom to let me wear his and him wear mine, we came to a compromise; he would actually smile for a picture with me, just as long as each of us wore our OWN hats.
I can't tell you if I wore the fireman's hat and not much of anything else later or Ang will kill me.
Let's just say me and The Bandit are still friends and leave it at that.
In other news, the Yankees signed CC Sabbathia to a 6 year, $160 million dollar contract when the next reported offer was roughly $60 million dollars less.
Why do I get the feeling we'll be seeing him on a future season of "Celebrity Fit Club"?
God Bless the Yankees; signing the guy who looks like he's one biscuit away from 300 lbs to a guaranteed 6 year deal when he's only going to pitch in roughly 35 games and can't pitch in the post season to save his life.
This has the makings of a what were they thinking documentary written all over it.
