The Boys of Summer

It’s a sure sign that spring is upon us, and summer is close behind when the boys of summer join us in the great white north for some baseball.

I can’t think of anything more relaxing than being at the stadium watching a game, with the rest of the world on hold. Cynics have argued with me that it’s a game not a sport. Yah, so what?

I challenge you to bend over in a pair of baseball pants and show off a rear end as fabulous as most of those men…but I digress darlings…

As I pack my ballpark bag, strap on my ‘lucky’ sneakers, and get settled into my blue seat along the first baseline, I wish you all the joy that comes with the start of the Major League Baseball season, little league, and everything in between.

Friday Fifty: Let’s Play Ball!

This Friday Fifty was inspired by the joy of baseball that I share with my one and only kiddo. I hope you enjoy this Friday Fifty, and are anticipating the start of the official baseball season.

“A warm, foil wrapped frank cradled in a soft, steamed bun in one hand and a cold beer sloshing over the edge of the cup dripping down my arm – a slow torture of temptation until I make it to my seat. Opening day is our summer ritual. Let’s play ball!”

It’s  Friday Fifty! I’ve linked through another blog above, but I believe that this Friday Fifty was inspired by the Scottish Trust’s Fifty Word Fiction Competition.

If you’d like to give Friday Fifty a spin, you must play by the rules as posted at  dans les pointes suture darlings.  You can leave your fifty in the comments box  or post it on your blog and link back to this post.

Twitter etiquette for Friday Fifty on Twitter, then don’t forget to use the hashtag #Friday50. Happy Writing!
