>Opening Day

>Today was opening day, and Coach Dave and his Mets were great! I didn’t get to take too many pictures, because my fingers were frozen.

The thing is, Jack turned green today after… wait – this is about Luke. Luke is a great kid, who is easy going, easy to get along with, happy, smart, and fun. He’s fun to be around and I am proud of who he is. And I love when Jack does or says something ridiculous, and I can just look at Luke and see him rolling his eyes. Today during the tantrum of the millennium, Luke tried to make Jack laugh. Long story short, Luke is so great, he’s not great blog fodder. Plus, I get the distinct impression that he would not be happy if I made fun of him on my blog, by calling him by today’s nickname: Ankles. Who knew he would grow 3 inches since last summer? All I know is, if he were Jack he’d be saying, “Who has 2 thumbs and needs bigger cleats and longer baseball pants? This guy!”

And Luke had a pretty nice hit, too:
