Go Giants!!

They won!!! 
And now Patty's team is headed to California!!....wouldn't it be great if Patty was coming too--do you think the Texas Rangers would take her and her cute kids with them???

What fun for the kids to come back to the U.S. and have our local team winning the playoffs! This is their introduction to baseball since they had very little exposure living in the U.K.----most exposure came through Wii. 
D has been wearing his San Francisco Giants hat around town and people always comment on it and ask about his favorite player or if he watched the game. So far, no favorite player, and "watching the game" is more of an idea than a reality. But it is fun non the less. And we have been seeing some imaginary baseball games in the backyard...though M claims her favorite game is cricket (don't worry, we are working on her!). 

As for the adults of the Kennedy family...well, I have to confess I probably wouldn't be paying attention at all if they weren't in the playoffs. As much as I love the game of baseball, I have never been really big on actually watching on any regular basis. 

But this is fun! And what fun to be watching the World Series along with my new blog friend Patty!!

  1. Ahhh. Thank you! I was thinking the same thing...wouldn't it be great if we could meet over a game, hot dog and cold drink?!

    I'm the same way with the sports. As a child, I was all about baseball (Cub fan here). Then married a "hunter". Things changed from athletic sports to outdoor sports.

    I was thinking...Mabel would make a fantastic manager, Stan could be the pilot of the team, and Sally & Ester could be the ball girls.

    On a side note: Sally is a die hard Ranger fan!

    P.S. So glad to see another team other than the Yankees! (Sorry folks.) ;)
