Since 2008 is coming to an end, I decided to take a look back and make a list of my favorite things from this year. Here you go, in no particular order.
#1. Food I discovered real food earlier this year. I still dig milk, but food is pretty darn good. I’ve had food that’s all different colors, shapes and smells. I gotta say, I like just about all of it. My favorites are cheese and pizza.
#2. Batting Practice I like going to the ballpark early to catch batting practice. I’ve caught balls, gotten autographs and met some of my favorite players. Batting practice was a great discovery for 2008.
#3. Clapping Clapping’s my favorite. It’s way underrated. I’m glad I figured out how to do it. You should try it sometime.
#4. Road Trips and Away Games I’m pretty lucky. I got to travel alot this year. I managed to visit two Major League Ballparks in addition to Coors Field. I hope to visit at least two more next season.
#5. Double Headers Two games for the price of one! Are you kidding me! I managed to hit my first double header in Baltimore, when the Orioles played the Rays. You can read all about it if you search a little deeper in my blog. I was instantly hooked. You’ve got to check these out.
#6. My Bears These guys really understand me. Not to mention, their fur is yummy.
#7. Mascots Furry and silly, mascots from all around always put a smile on my face.
#8. MLBlogs This place rocks! It gives me the chance to talk with people around the country about something I love… baseball. I could spend days just reading other blogs and enjoying all of the creativity and hard work that goes into it. I hope you enjoy my little spot here on the web as much as I enjoy posting and sharing with you.
Best of 2008 Honorable Mentions: Music (especially Vampire Weekend – they make me want to dance); hanging with my family and friends; all of the deer and wildlife at Pap and Gran C’s place; Sesame Street; my kitties (not to be confused with the Angry Kittens); living in Colorado.
Hope you have a great 2009!
