“Broken Glove” Cedar Park, 2020

Koa has been using the Rawlings baseball glove that I bought way back in 1990, and one of the leather straps snapped when we were playing catch the other day. We reinforced it with some zip ties and it stayed together for a couple of more weeks, but another strap broke and it’s too difficult to repair easily. I guess after 30 years, all the straps are pretty weak so I think its time to retire the old glove. I know you can buy new leather strips to fix it so I’ll keep the glove in case I need a project to work on.

I think it’s time to get a new glove for Koa!

Champions!

Dodger Bear and I are hoping they can cross the World Series finish line this time. 2020 is a crazy year, after all! 😋

“Dodgers Zoom” Cedar Park, 2020

We’re still unsure about the status of this season because of the COVID-19 situation, but Bay and I got a little dose of Dodgers goodness tonight by tuning into the Dodgers Zoom Party. It was nice of them to give their fans something to watch. Thank you!

Fancy Hot Dog and Opening Day Record

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today is Opening Day of the 2019 major-league baseball season here in the States, and to celebrate, I had a hot dog for lunch. In true melting-pot of America style, I got the Vietnamese-styled hot dog, which according to the Mission Dogs website, has cucumber-carrot-jalapeño-cilantro slaw, garlic-chili sauce, and Sriracha mayo. These toppings sit on top of a bacon-wrapped hot dog. This dog is DELICIOUS!

Anyway, I streamed a game at work in the afternoon (sorry for being a bandwidth hog) on mlb.tv (free once again for T-Mobile customers!), and then at home Bay and I watched the Dodger game. What made this particular game awesome was that the Dodgers hit 8 home runs, which is an MLB opening day record!

I’m looking forward to another world series run for my favorite team, and hopefully, we can win one before I get too old. 😄
