Spiderman, The Guy, Venom, and Yuke (Luke) all went to church on Sunday. Today, the Power Ranger came to the baseball game. I mingle with all sorts thanks to Isaac’s introductions. If there are any of you singles out there who need to be set up with a superhero, Isaac is your man. You may however end up with the generic/pirated or made in China versions that came out not quite right. For example, he is acquaintances with Buzz Yightyear, Yuke Skywalker, and 006 (“one away from the big time”-Pink Panther). I’m not quite sure who “The Guy” really is, but every time I try to give him a good Christian name I am rebuffed by Isaac. “The Guy” is bald, bearded, wears camouflage and is often seen fully clothed with Yuke in the bathtub, weird.
Today, as I said, we took the Blue Power Ranger to the game. He proved to be a very loyal companion of Isaac’s as we watched the game. Coach pitch isn’t supposed to be as stimulating as the real game (the one with rules and no back-up tee for those who just can’t hit it) but is a step above all out T-ball. However, in the “real” version of baseball you don’t get to see the player’s carefully climbing the chain link fences in the dug-out. Nor do you see the players taking a nap in the outfield. Nor do you get to see your 3 year old son casually walk onto the field in the middle of the game, ignoring you, and everyone else, like you were some speck of dust who happens to know your name and loves to express it over and over again in an annoying tone. I rarely see, in the “real” version of the game, the runners trying to avoid being tagged out by running in circles around the plate. Yep, coach pitch is definitely, entertainment-wise, a step above the “real” game and you get to see an assortment of superheroes and super kids all in one game!
