Speaking of baseball, no lie: CCB’s cousin is a hot prospect in the Braves organization. (Gotta love that college, too!) But this is just an excuse to tell you that my one and only April Fool’s prank involved telling CCB that his whole family was coming down and staying with us for the last week of Spring Training. (It may have been a more effective prank had he tried telling .me. that, but then he would’ve spent the evening at the hospital.)
A proud moment and a life lesson.
Friday Night Lights has been renewed! For two more seasons! It hasn’t been as good as the first season, I think, but it’s still damn good. (I demand an Emmy for the woman who plays Grandma Saracen.)
Can I tell you my new favorite thing in the whole wide world? When CCB and I have kickball games at Bee Ridge Park, and rough-and-tumble, 40-year-old hockey teammates Top Dawg Tom and Krazy Kevin show up to cheer us on. It’s like having your parents come to your teeball games—if your parents drank beer and made fun of you. That’ll be the crowd again for tonight’s game: Those two hooligans, plus onetime coworker and longtime friend Rock Star Kim, onetime classmate and longertime friend Little J, and all the new cool kickball friends. It’s family dinner. I can’t wait.
