Baseball is Life!

"Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them -- a desire, a dream, a vision."

-- Author:Muhammad Ali

Our routine is pretty simple. We wake up and watch some sort of baseball movie (Hardball aka "Big Poppa" - named after a song in the movie- or The Sandlot aka "Boys") while everyone gets ready for the day. Then, we usually pack up some baseball equipment (or ALL of the equipment) for the ride to daycare. Once we get home in the evening, daddy is in charge of pitching and/or playing catch. After bath time, it's back to the movies before hitting the sack with whatever baseball equipment is needed for nite-nite. He loves it! Baseball IS life!

1,2,3 Rooaaaarrrr!

Katelyn & Josh came to visit this past weekend. Luke LOVED the company!

We all went to the St. Rita Fall Fair, which was really great for all the kids. After that we went to pick out our pumpkins at the pumpkin patch.

We've got SPIRIT -- yes we do!

Well...Luke was suspended from daycare for a WEEK! I guess we will have to enroll him in some anger management classes until the "terrible twos" are over. Apparently he's a "hitter" and a sporadic "biter".

I've tried it all! We do time-out, or as the daycare calls it, "the thinking spot". Uhhh, yeah....he doesn't seem to care much about that. I have researched, researched & researched, all to no avail. They say its all about temperament and learning to teach those termed "spirited". Isn't that a nice little PC term? (Spirited..I like it! It sounds like a GOOD thing, huh?) I've cried, I've laughed, I've temporarily lost my mind at times. They assure me that he is "just a boy" and "only 2", but I am waiting for the day that I pick him up from daycare and they tell me that he can't come back! I will be devastated.

Poor little guy. He gets it honest though. I am sure my mother is loving it!

LSU Tiger Football Rules:
They should NEVER be broken:

1. Never schedule anything important on a day LSU is scheduled to play football. There are typically 353 other days of the year to do those things on. Choose one of them!

2. Never attend a wedding during a LSU football game unless you carry a TV... and watch it during the ceremony and reception. Also don't forget to register the wedding on fallweddingssuck.com <http://fallweddingssuck.com/>!

3. It is against the rules to not wear purple and gold on ANY game day. More points go to those wearing football jerseys, hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts, pants, boxers, jewelry, and jackets, preferably all at the same time. Good old purple and gold always works especially if it's old school stuff from your LSU days. Anything else is always gay.

4. Always and I mean ALWAYS, return any "GEAUX" with a hearty "TIGERS!" This is true even during funerals, sex, in foreign countries or when witnessing the birth of your child.

5. Every vehicle you see while driving that contains an Ole Miss or Alabama sticker should be honked at then flipped off. To be on the safe side, do this to every car with a Mississippi or Alabama license plate.

6. When Florida plays Auburn, it is mandatory to despise both teams. There are no winners.

7. You cannot have a second favorite football team behind LSU. You are only permitted to have another team that you hate the least.

8. It is OK to be emotional (and even "tear" up) during the following:

  • First beer of the first tailgate of the season
  • Your child's first LSU game
  • When the band plays the Alma Mater, Hey Fighting Tiger, Hey Baby, or Touchdown for LSU!
  • Watching the sun rise after a night game in Tiger Stadium
  • Anytime anyone mentions Brady Quinn and 23rd pick or USC and loss in the same sentence.
  • LSU winning the National Championship

9. Always take off your hat during the Alma Mater and physically remove the hats of anyone in your vicinity who fails to do so.

10. Tailgating is mandatory. And by tailgating, you must be drinking beer before 6:00 AM. This includes both home and away games.

11. When you die, you must have at least one item of LSU memorabilia with you. (Specify which one in your will, that way your spouse won't pick something stupid).

12. Your children should be taught to let you know when they "have to take a War Eagle" to then flush it around the bowl and down the hole "Roll Tide Roll."

13. You are forbidden to fall for the National Media crap sandwich that Bear Bryant was a "good guy." In reality, he was a bitter old man, a cheater and referee-baiter. The program's credibility went south forever when Bama hired Nick Saban to resurrect their sorry football program.

14. Recruiting must be followed as intensely as any game. This is true even if it puts your job/career at risk.

15. Attend the Spring Game. It makes it easier to survive the summer.

16. Try to never boo a former or current LSU football player who is playing in the NFL. But as always you can boo any player who once played against LSU with all of your might. (i.e., Rex Grossman)

17. Correct anyone who doesn't refer to LSU as "THE" only real university in Louisiana.

18. ESPN employees must be verbally taunted at every opportunity. Note: Lou Holtz still thinks Notre Dame was better than LSU in the 2007 Sugar Bowl.

19. Hang a LSU flag outside of your house every day. If any of your neighbors counter this with a Florida/Ole Miss flag, it is your solemn duty to tear it down and deface it anyway you see fit.

20. It is important to consider the "good old days" ARE NOW. Enjoy them!!!!!

And GEAUX........! (If you said nothing after that... see rule #4)

No more monkeys jumping on the bed

The child has no fear! None!

Luke has apparently decided that calling me "Ma" instead of "Momma" works better for him. (He has also chosen to shorten "Maw Maw" to just "Maw") You'll hear him calling me MA in this clip.

Duck says "Pak-Pak"

Luke visited the ducks in Baton Rouge. I thought he might be a little scared, but he LOVED it! This is one of my most favorite moments with him. He was squealing with delight!

Luke turned 2 on May 27, 2007. Since then, during all waking hours, he has played with his new ESPN baseball game that he got from Camille Mansour. This is his practice routine!

Tiger Woods

Luke's most favorite thing is baseball, but he is branching out into golf due to his Paw Paw's influence. See you at the Masters!

Leapin Lizards....

Luke was playing outside when Josh found a lizard. At one point, Luke let the lizard "bite" his finger and he made an irritated face as though he couldn't believe the lizard actually did it!

Cold Beer :)

We found out that Luke likes cold beer the other night....except he prefers the feel to the taste. For some unknown reason he giggles with delight when Mike puts a beer to his belly or legs. See for yourself!
