legends never die.

Sunday, July 18, 2010

it's been an amazing week full of...
vacation|rest|family|mini-golf|despicable me|water balloon fights|photo's|food|and...baseball.
it all started with m&m watching the sandlot a couple weeks ago.
you know...sandlot.

"...you play ball like a girl!'

"...just stand out there and stick your glove out in the air. I'll take care of it..."

"...hey smalls, you wanna s'more? some more of what? no, do you wanna s'more?  I haven't had anything yet, so how can I have some more of nothing?  you're killing me smalls!"  

"...the sultan of swat!  the king of crash!  the colossus of clout! the great bambino!"

and the best one from the babe himself (well, in the movie) :)

"...remember kid, there's heroes and there's legends. heroes get remembered but legends never die, follow your heart kid, and you'll never go wrong..." 

my boy is especially into it lately...so grampa and daddy took him out to the backyard to hit a few.  even now I'm smiling...you should have seen his determination stepping up to the plate...it reminded me of the movie and how a simple sandlot was transformed into yankee stadium...

it was in the boys eyes...he wasn't in the backyard anymore - he was wearing p.f.flyers getting ready to hit a homer...just like the great bambino. :)
