Holidays are always a long day around here. Thankfully, both Ang and my parents are still with us and close by so we get to see them as often as we like and get to spend every holiday with them.
The down side of all this is it's usually a long day when you combine visiting two households while hauling around the equivalent of 3 house pets.
Only these talk. A LOT.
Being that TBS blacked me out today ( I live in NC; 5 plus hours from Atlanta. Can someone smarter than me tell me how in the name of Johnny Appleseed am I in the Braves "Home Market"?), my in laws have basic, and I do mean BASIC cable and by the time I got home it was the 7th inning and tied 4-4.
That, combined with it going to 5-5 and Pap loading the bases in the top of the ninth only to get out of it with some WAY high cheese left me feeling like I'd just spent the afternoon riding a bull named Fu Man Chu for 4 hours straight.
One pitch to Nick Green and it's all good; walk off win on a HR around the Pesky Pole combined with the Yanks losing to the Marlins and the Sox are up in the AL East by 4 games.
Happy Fathers Day to all you Dad's out there.
Nick Green thanks you.
