The First High School Baseball Game of Russ's Junior Year
Ok ... baseball in April in New Jersey ... F-R-E-E-Z-I-N-G! We spectators were dressed for winter and we kept saying, "How do the boys play in this kind of weather?" Well play they did. Our school is called Columbia. For years, we were the BAD NEWS BEARS team. Today...NOT SO MUCH! I cannot give you a blow by blow account of the game because I'm just not into it, but you can call my Gary any day and he'll recant the game to you. So not only did Russ's team, Columbia WIN, RUSSELL GOT THE FIRST HOME RUN OF THE GAME, OF HIS CAREER, OR HIS EVERYTHING!!!! Ya think we went nuts on the sideline? HOLY MAC-IN-OLY!!!!!!!!!!!! Russ helped turn the game around as it was the 3rd inning and we were losing. Not only did Russ hit a home run, well he caught a fantastic game (so says Gary) Apparently Russ can really BLOCK/FRAME a ball - which I understand in this game is HUUUUUUUUGE! So all is well in the Cahn household tonight. Can't live on this first WIN forever ... but for tonight we sure will. Russ was interviewed after the game for this website in NJ that all the sports freaks visit http://www.sidelinechatter.com. If you don't want to hear about the game from Gary, go to this website. Oh we're also getting up at the crack of dawn to get our newspaper and READ ALL ABOUT IT! You see Seton Hall Prep had 2 pitchers last year...1, Rick Porcello who was drafted by the Detroit Tigers and there were scouts and scouts at all the games as Seton Hall Prep has the #1 High School Baseball team in the country! AND OUR TEAM BEAT THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!
But tomorrow is another day -- and so it goes. I've been HUGELY busy getting out all your EXTRA LONG orders -- so tomorrow -- T.G.I.F.!
Bye for now!
