Well today was supposed to be opening day for the oldest. Well it was unfortunately a rain-out and boy was he upset and disappointed. All he has been talking about for the past few days was playing tee ball with Coach Dave. He said he was going to pray for no rain when we told him there is a chance of rain the next few days. He was saying something out loud on the way to Dick's Sporting Goods when we ran out to get him a helmet an bat bag. When we asked him what he was saying because he was speaking softly he said "I'm praying for no rain so I can play tee ball with Coach Dave." So Mother Nature please no rain for the next few days. Good thing opening ceremonies are tomorrow morning and he has a game tomorrow evening with minimal chance of rain.
Dad is a little disappointed too that the boy didn't get to play and I lost some eBay auctions via last second snipe bids. That's OK there are more of the cards I was wanting out there and they're not too rare plus I didn't want to overpay for the cards I was wanting. I am watching a few low numbered cards that are ending tomorrow so hopefully I have better luck and don't have two rain-outs.
Well the Mets won again and are a few games over .500 and ended the Marlins closer consecutive saved games at 30 something. Mr. Wheeler was wheeling and dealing strikeouts to the tune of 10 in 6 innings of work. Here's a nice little jersey card from '14 Gypsy Queen that I picked up for a buck or so. Plus its pretty unique being and alternate orange jersey from I believe Spanish Heritage Night with Los Mets on the front. Can never have too many Mets cards.
