My Baller

Raef and Zach each got to choose the sport they wanted to play this season. Raef chose baseball.  During the first few weeks, he was the most enthusiastic cheerer out there. But that has kind of waned.  Finally, a little while ago Raef made a confession on the way home from his game.  He doesn't like baseball.  He thinks it is boring.

I am really shocked. I mean, he gets to stand in the outfield as pitch after pitch goes past the hitter, with an occasional connection that never comes his way. Why would he think it is boring?

I was talking to one of the moms yesterday and she told me he is her favorite player.  Apparently, at one of the games he had his glove on his head and the ball actually did come his way. He caught it with his bare hand.

I think we are going to try basketball next.

hahahahaha!! What a hilarious post!

BTW -- I love the wisdom of letting each boy pick ONE sport they want to do... Otherwise, things just get crazy. Good for you all!

P.S. Personally, I think baseball is the most boring sport, too. yawn. A little more action, please.[My HS boyfriend played baseball and I never went to a single game...]

LOL he's a funny kid. And I beg to differ - either cricket or golf is way more boring than baseball.

On second thought, you're right... golf is pretty boring, too, but I hardly consider it a "sport" (haha)-- that's why I didn't think of it! [And I'm not familiar with cricket.]
